Commercial Kitchen Fitout


Designing a commercial kitchen is a complex yet rewarding process. Whether you are opening a restaurant, cafe, bar or designing a bulk food kitchen in Perth, the decision-making process can be a little daunting – so it’s important to arm yourself with as much information and research as possible.

As WA’s leading commercial kitchen design consultants, we’ve pulled together some of the key aspects of commercial kitchen design, as well as our tips on how to approach the task:

Commercial Kitchen Design and layout

There are a number of different ways you can set out the design of your commercial kitchen based on the type of venue or location you have. For some restaurants, especially those who do functions, an assembly line setup or a layout with a large island in the middle is preferable due to their efficiency when plating lots of meals, whilst some venues opt for a more compact design, which can encourage quicker and smoother processes when doing smaller quantities or purely a la carte.  For other venues that have many different dishes or elements, a zoned layout with different benches and work spaces for prep may work best. It’s important to make sure you lay down your plans first, before you make any big decisions. Which is why we recommend talking to a commercial kitchen consultant like Arcus, before you begin your commercial kitchen fitout.

Work with the experts

It’s important that you get a team of experts on your side during the design process of your commercial kitchen fitout, as they will know exactly how and where to place certain vital elements. At Arcus Australia, we have a talented team of commercial kitchen design consultants and experts that are here to help you every step of the way. Work with our refrigeration engineers and stainless-steel specialists to establish what specific equipment and benching will work for your design both practically and aesthetically, and to ensure everything can be installed in the designated spots.

We also have in-house experts with years of experience in commercial kitchen equipment to consult with, to make sure the layout of your commercial kitchen is 100% best practice and that you are including the equipment that best meets your needs. While the aesthetics of your restaurant kitchen design are important, functionality comes first. That’s why it’s important to ensure that everything will work, and is built to encourage a smooth, well-run commercial kitchen.
