Create a budget
Don’t buy cheap when it comes to kitchens
Although it can be tempting to cut costs wherever you can and spend as little money on equipment as possible, you should strive to seek out high-quality materials, furniture and equipment for your kitchen. Otherwise, you may end up spending twice as much. If your hospitality venture requires a kitchen, be sure to invest in long-lasting equipment, such as stainless steel bench-work and professional stoves and ovens.
Design a unique interior
Think about the practicalities
Although interior design is important, it will be useless if your space doesn’t function well. Here are some of the practicalities you need to consider:
- Space parameters. Customers and staff need ample space to move around, so make sure you don’t put tables too close together.
- Optimise your lighting so that both you, your staff and your customers can see everything properly.
- Make the most of storage space. You never know what you might need it for.
