Planning Your Church Kitchen Design

Church Kitchen Design


Here’s What You’ Need First

Before spending any money on buying a new church kitchen design, make sure you know more about what your church will be using it for and how much you will need. This will help you get a better picture of what exactly you will need. If your assets will be used for church activities, you will need to maximize space by getting storage space for equipment as well as cooking, storage and preparation areas for food that are for religious eduction purposes.

Choosing the Right Church Kitchen Design

Once you know what you’re looking for, you need to determine what options will work best for your church. You will want to design your kitchen after any specific requirements. If you have four separate areas for your hot food before service, then designate those areas with one chef. However, this may not work for a community closet that will have numerous people. In this case, you will need your hot food areas near the front of your church or will need to make sure that two areas get close enough to meet in order to allow for aisles.

If you have a provincial scale, then you will still need designated areas for hot food and cross trainers before service and two authorized areas before service, with an area provided for hot food. If you need to add more accommodations, such as catering, then contact the owner of the facility where you’re planning on serving your food.

Next, you must decide whether you want a proper kitchen design or a theme. A proper design will help your kitchen’s function efficiently. It will vary with your location. It will also help fit in with your Communion process. Designers will help you ascertain your purpose and identify what kind of space you require.

Planning Your Kitchen 

Once you have chosen what look you want for your kitchen, then make sure you plan it out carefully. This will give you a better general idea of how you’re going to proceed with your décor as well as make it easier to address issues surrounding your kitchen.

Shop Around

When shopping for a design, it’s best to shop around. Resist the temptation to pay attention to first price points first. You can then follow up with the most expensive choice and judge their quality.

Speak to the Design Professional

Once you have completed your design, it’s important that you get all the opinions of an expert. Bring folks in from time to time to see how their ideas translate to your needs. You can also present questions for consumers and ask the best design professionals in your area to provide feedback.

Get Professional Installation

It’s a lot of hard work to work on a building. It’s easy to consider highly technical specifics for conventional shop real estate but this is not always the case for church facilities. When you are considering church furniture, make sure you get professional installation. Commercialism is a big decision and the last thing you want to do is to compromise the quality of your church due to a lack of expertise in the field.

Before you send the design process to work, make sure you have done your research and have a plot out on the floor plan. This is the solution to pulling off a perfect design that will provide a beautiful and functional space.

One of the most important things to consider is how much space you have to play with. You need to make sure that you have enough room for services such as cleaning, cooking and cooking hot food. Sometimes these are not convenient for an individual who wants to eat alone.

Next, you will need to decide on functionality. Will you need catering and a kitchen/catering area separately? If so, do you have room for both? If so, do you need to separate the kitchen and serve it in separate rooms? If you do need separate services, then you will need to make sure that all guests have access to the kitchen area.  Will you need commercial kitchen equipment?

Finally, coordinating power and sound are important features frequently ignored that will prove very useful. Power those lights as far as possible from your kitchen and don’t take any incoming telephone calls from the kitchen area in the same manner that you would if it was in the service area.
