How to Design Your Commercial Kitchen, Honolulu, Hawaii

When starting any restaurant or food-based business, the most important element is the kitchen. A well-designed space will make cooking, plating, and serving easier for your staff. As such, it is imperative that it is designed with functionality and efficiency in mind. To help with this, AMSCO, a top commercial kitchen equipment company in Honolulu, HI, has shared their advice.

Know How Much Space You Need

Once you’ve secured the perfect building, take measurements of the commercial kitchen. Remember to note details such as outlet locations and extra walls or doors that could limit your design.

Next, consider your workflow. Create a mock-up of how you want your team to operate within the space, and plan to position appliances, counters, sinks, and shelves accordingly. Consider the functionality of their placement. For example, you'll likely want the refrigerator and freezers near the stovetop. Shelves of spices, flour, and sugar may sit close to the convection oven and a designated baking counter.

Fit Appliances Accordingly

Shop for options, so you know what sizes you will likely work with; once you’ve chosen your appliances, you can draw them to scale in your floor plan. It may also help to use masking tape to mark the accurate sizes of the fixtures on the floor of your kitchen so you can ensure walkways and paths make sense.

If you can’t quite make premade counters, shelves, or sinks fit into your plan, it may be best to invest in custom fabrication. With custom jobs, much of the large or awkwardly shaped equipment can be created to fit your specific space.
