Modular furniture, practical equipment
An optimal distribution of the furniture and machinery of a professional kitchen depends to a certain extent on the type of menu and the maximum seating capacity of the restaurant. For example, a Japanese restaurant will not have the same needs as a pizzeria since the latter requires a large space in which to knead and bake.

Thus, modular furniture compositions are a wise choice, as they easily adapt and combine with each other. Some elements to equip the kitchen of your restaurant that can be of great help to you are:
• Continuous countertop: these one-piece stainless steel cooktops are an excellent way to make the most of space in small kitchens. When placed on top of modular furniture such as drawers, rubbish bins or shelves, you can use it as a workbench for food preparation. Continuous countertops do not have gaskets, so they make cleaning easier and quicker.
• Sinks: when it comes to equipping the kitchen of your restaurant, sinks are indispensable elements. How can you make the most of the space they occupy? Place shelves under the sink to place the cleaning products and attach them to a worktop to have everything you need at hand in your everyday life.
