Here are some tips to consider when you are planning for a commercial kitchen :
This may seem expensive but actually, the correct type of flooring will help to ensure the efficiency of the kitchen. You may need slightly sloping floors, to ensure that any excess surface water can drain easily and that the floors are easier to clean.
Also, you may need to consider a non-slip floor, which is important in a larger commercial kitchen, where there are many people walking around at any given time, many with hot plates, knives, or other dangerous items.
It is important that lighting is carefully selected, that there is plenty of overhead lighting, but also lighting at the counters and work areas should be chosen wisely.
Ventilation is very important, it will draw out stale air, which can cause food to rot more quickly than fresh air. It will also ensure that the kitchen smells nice at all times.
