Planning and designing a new kitchen is more complicated than you might think, and the commercial cabinets are a central focal point. Whether you’re building or remodeling an assisted living facility, hospitality project, or multifamily unit, the choice of cabinets will be one of the most significant decisions you’ll have to make.
Here are five questions you need to ask yourself before you decide on a new set of cabinets so you can ensure you’re making the best possible choice. And if you’re second-guessing yourself, you can always call a professional for help.
What Is the Budget Like?
Before getting carried away with grand plans, it’s essential to take a hard look at the budget. Keeping cost in mind from the beginning will help narrow down your search and make sure you don’t bite off more than you can chew, financially speaking.
How Much Storage Do I Need?
Commercial cabinets function a little bit differently from those in standard residential kitchens. Each commercial kitchen has its own needs, so keep those in mind when you’re choosing cabinets. For example, hotel kitchenettes don’t need to worry about storage as much, while ample storage can be a big selling point for multifamily units.
Why Style Do I Want?
Think about the design style of your project as a whole. Is it industrial? Farmhouse? Modern, contemporary, or traditional? You want to make sure the cabinets you choose complete the look rather than standing out like a sore thumb. Nailing down the style of your space before you choose cabinets is an important step.
What Are My Priorities?
Most commercial kitchens prioritize durability, ease of cleaning, storage, and functionality. But for some, visual appeal is at the top of the list. Think about what the priorities are for this project and then choose accordingly.
Who Will Be Using the Kitchen, and What Are Their Needs?
If you’re able, it’s not a bad idea to consult with those who will be using the kitchen. Ask renters what they like or dislike about the cabinets they’ve had in the past. Discuss cabinet sizes, types, and placement with the staff at assisted living facilities so you can find out what has worked in the past and what hasn’t.
Information is knowledge, and the more research you do before making a choice, the more satisfied you and your tenants will be with the cabinets you choose.
