Planning an office kitchen is very different from planning a kitchen for a private home. More than anything else, an office kitchen will require lots of storage space for dirty dishes and a large dishwasher. After all, anyone busy in the kitchen is likely to be doing one of the following things: getting water, making a coffee, pouring something away or washing up. If you’re putting together a workplace kitchen, you need to focus on a different type of use than you would for a conventional kitchen.
Shared kitchens should be particularly easy to look after
Particularly easy-care surfaces are best for cabinet fronts, worktops, flooring and the sink in a kitchen that is going to be used by lots of people.
All available storage space should be used
As office kitchens tend not to be particularly big yet serve the needs of lots of members of staff, the storage space should be used to maximum effect. This includes the wall cabinets, which will soon fill up with cups and glasses. Deep pull-out drawers ensure that the storage options are being utilised to the full.
