Whether you’re running a top-class kitchen in the city or just trying to make your home kitchen a little more livable, spicing things up in the kitchen is a lot easier with a workspace that’s right for you and your team. Colors, equipment and storage are all things that can influence your perfect kitchen. Here are three simple and inexpensive ways to transform your kitchen into your dream workspace:
- Figuring Out What You Want
The most important step to creating a great kitchen doesn’t necessarily revolve around quality restaurant equipment and great restaurant supplies, although they are an important part of your kitchen. The first step is figuring out what sort of kitchen you want. If you’re in the professional industry, a clean, fresh workspace is key. Reduce clutter and make sure to stock up on organizational equipment to keep things running smoothly. If you’re planning on creating a new home kitchen, you have plenty of room to play around and choose your preferences. Choose an appropriate color scheme and map out what supplies and equipment you’ll need. Once you have a clear plan, get cracking by browsing online stores for the cheapest prices and more reliable brands. It’s best to find a store that you can use regularly and that offers great customer service and a wide range of products.
- Buying The Right Equipment
There no use in wasting your money or budget on silly kitchen gadgets and unreliable brands. When choosing your restaurant equipment, make sure to shop smart. Create a list of what you want versus what you need and come up with a few key items that will make your cooking experience a whole lot easier and that you will really use. The same rule applies when choosing restaurant supplies. Everything needs to complement each other, and it’s not as hard to get right as you think. Make sure everything you’re planning on buying fits in your workspace perfectly and don’t be afraid to get the measuring tape out for this step. Quality restaurant equipment can be pricy, even if you’re buying it from a great supplier, so spent your money wisely and say goodbye to impulse shopping.
There’s nothing more aggravating than being a busy chef in a messy kitchen and feeling overwhelmed. Believe it or not, your choice of wall paint and color scheme can make a big difference in avoiding this and calming you down when things get intense. Whether your preference is blue, red or plain old white, choose a color scheme for your kitchen that you’ll really enjoy, day-in and day-out. Matching your restaurant supplies to your kitchen’s color scheme will create an even better calming effect on your mood. It’s a proven fact that kitchen’s that are color-coordinated run smoother and more productively than kitchens that aren’t, and this refers to the restaurant industry as well as your home kitchen. Once you’ve got these three simple elements right, you’ll find a new sense of joy in cooking and a renewed love for your industry. Happy cooking, chefs!
