In a bustling restaurant, every inch of space is critical. Counter space is almost always lacking, and storage space quickly becomes a luxury. When you invest in proper storage solutions for your restaurant you can help ensure that your workflow runs smoother, looks better, and is more sanitary. Having everything in its own home and put away frees up more space and allows you to keep everything clean and organized. If you’re ready to start working towards a more put together kitchen, these storage ideas should help inspire you.
Most restaurants and commercial buildings of all types have plenty of empty walls in areas that might be considered dead space – sections where there is little foot traffic or commotion. Adding mounted wall shelving to these spaces can help clear up floors and counters in the back of the house and leave an area for decoration at the front.
When you need a solution for heavy pots, pans, and cooking utensils, a hanging shelf is an excellent option. Having your most used tools open and accessible to grab is a great way to ensure that they can be accessed easily leading to a more effective workflow. Options that have overhead storage space and hanging area allows for maximum storage.
Bins For Small Things
With your larger items set aside, there are tons of small items that can take up far more counter space than they deserve. Why not switch to easily accessible stacking bin storage that will allow you to keep your space clutter free and clean. Adding labels to the fronts will make them even more useful.
If you have a lot of items that need storage that is visually pleasing or relevant to your menu – think wine and alcohol – display storage near the front of the house is a beautiful way to go, Not only will it encourage customers to make a purchase, but it keeps your bar in better shape.
