Most important things to bear in mind when designing your commercial kitchen in Dubai.

No matter what size your commercial kitchen is, there is a way to make sure they are designed in a way that gives you maximum working space and storage. A well-designed commercial kitchen not only improves your company’s productivity and therefore your profit margin, but also improve your employees’ happiness and safety.

Before you start planning how to design your commercial kitchen, it is important to first decide what the goal of your kitchen will be and what food you will be preparing. The type of food you will be preparing will change the layout as well as the equipment and storage in your commercial kitchen. For example, looking at a bakery’s kitchen compared to a restaurant’s kitchen will be very different, with the bakery having more specialized baking equipment and maybe more cupboard storage for ingredients, whereas a restaurant’s ingredients will be mainly fresh so will need larger refrigerators.

Once you have chosen your location, it is important to have exact measurements of your kitchen taken, so that the company who will outfit the space can work completely to scale in their designs.

Safety is one of the most important factors in designing your commercial kitchen. Not only must the food be 100% safe and stored correctly, but also the equipment must be placed in strategic positions and there must be enough space for the employees to work side by side without causing accidents.

Remember, if you commercial kitchen is not designed properly, it will impact your whole business, from the amount of dishes the kitchen can prepare to the safety and wellbeing of your staff members. Work with a recognized company in the design and fit out of your kitchen, and make sure no corners are cut along the way.
