Purchase a few industrial appliances. Aside from the fact that industrial appliances are very easy to clean, they can also make your kitchen look sleek and modern. Plus, they are manufactured in such a way that if you enjoy doing a lot of cooking and baking or you’re considering opening up your own catering company, they can handle your food preparation needs. After all, they are the kind of appliances that restaurants have. For more information on where to get industrial appliances, visit House of Appliances Inc.
Get some stainless steel accessories. Once you have some industrial appliances in place, the perfect complement to them are stainless steel items and accessories. For instance, you might want to consider adding a stainless steel table or some stainless steel cabinets to your kitchen. As far as accessories, stores like Crate & Barrel, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Pottery Barn, Wayfair and Amazon all carry them. Just go to one of the sites and put “stainless steel kitchen accessories” in the search field.
Add a tin ceiling. Keeping with the steel-looking theme, how about adding a tin ceiling? Initially, it might seem like too much for one room, but tin ceilings are actually a great way to add character to your kitchen. The really awesome thing about this suggestion is that you can make the ceiling yourself. For tips on how to do so, go to your favorite search engine and put “DIY tin ceiling tiles” in the search field. Another thing that you can do for your kitchen ceiling (and walls) is to add tile to them. It’s a unique approach and also a great way to make your kitchen easier to clean. Plus, you can choose tiles in all kinds of colors and patterns.
Install some open shelving. Something else that a lot of restaurants have is open shelving. There are several benefits that come with having them. Open shelves provide easy access to your dishes, glasses and pots, they’re a great way to display china and collectibles and they come in a variety of heights and colors. Open shelving is awesome.
Design a kitchen island. Having a restaurant style kitchen is about more than purchasing restaurant equipment or buying a certain type of accessories. It’s also about designing the layout of the kitchen too. Something that a lot of restaurants have is a bar. So, how about creating one of your own with the help of a kitchen island? If you add some barstools to it, it will have a bar feel while maintaining the presence of home. You can purchase a kitchen island at a local home improvement store. Or, if you’d prefer to make one, there are websites that can walk you through the process. One of them is HGTV. Go to the website and put “how to make a kitchen island” in the search field.
