Refurbishing a commercial kitchen is very different from renovating a regular kitchen. This is because there are a lot more of factors to keep in mind when working on a kitchen used to make food for a hundred people or more on a daily basis.

If you are considering updating your commercial kitchen, it is important that you think about every detail thoroughly. After all, a lot of time and money is spent completing a kitchen renovation or full refurbishment.

To guide you when you start with your renovation project, check out this list of some of the characteristics that an ideal kitchen for commercial use:

  1. It should have a functional design whilst maximizing your space.
    Commercial kitchens often have limited space, so the lay out should maximize the use of every square inch. A good idea for a space saving layout is to have the sink close to the drying area and the chopping and food preparation area close to the area where food is cooked.

    Kitchen refurbishment is not something you can do often, so it important that your newly refurbished kitchen stays functional and in good condition for years to come. Make sure that the materials used for the renovation are durable and strong whilst maintaining hygiene regulations.
  3. It should meet the Health & Safety requirements.
    It is vital that you keep safety requirements in mind so that accidents can be avoided. Consult your contractors so that safety features can be integrated into the kitchen’s design and the necessary safety equipment are installed. Ask about Hygienic wall cladding, none slip vinyl floors, and emergency backup lighting, including fire regulations this is all part of a correct commercial kitchen installation.
  4. It should follow Health Safety requirements.
