Many offices now have kitchens that employees can use. It’s common for employees to take breaks in spaces that have their own kitchens.
Most kitchens in offices are not especially big. They won’t necessarily need to be, since people are usually not going to be preparing meals there. The office kitchen may only need to be large enough for people to be able to use it comfortably, which typically won’t mean that there has to be lots of space devoted to it. It’s still important to account for this kitchen space during the office design planning process, or an employee kitchen can seem as if it’s too small to use easily.
These kitchens will also usually need to have shelves. The shelves will actually give office interior design professionals the opportunity to use space in the kitchen that much more efficiently. Some offices will have higher ceilings than others. However, many office buildings will still have a comparatively large amount of unused ceiling space that can be used for kitchen shelves.
Employees can keep items that will not need to be refrigerated in these shelves. They’ll also be able to keep utensils, cups, and similar items there. When an office kitchen is organized in this way, it will be that much easier to keep the kitchen counters clear throughout the week.
A kitchen will quickly look messy if the countertops are cluttered, even when it’s a clean kitchen that does not have lots of similar issues. People might struggle with keeping these counters clear if there is not enough room throughout the rest of the kitchen, or if they’re having a hard time keeping track of what they have there.
Finding room for more kitchen shelves in these areas might be possible. It’s possible to store lots of items in the kitchen shelves, while kitchen counters usually have a much more limited amount of overall space.
People won’t necessarily need to make sure that there is absolutely nothing on the kitchen countertops in a clean office kitchen, especially if they want to keep certain items easily accessible. If there are some kitchen snacks or similar products that were meant to be shared with everyone, the office kitchen will seem much more welcoming if the kitchen countertops are used that way.
Kitchen countertops will also usually be easier to clean than the kitchen shelves themselves, which might also become overly full fairly quickly. Still, employees usually won’t have to cope with those issues throughout the day, which can make problems with kitchen shelves less disruptive than similar issues with the kitchen countertops, making it more important for people to make sure that the kitchen has a balance of both of these structures.
A kitchen will seem like it’s more finished when it has both new counters and plenty of shelf space. Even an older kitchen will seem as if it was added to the office only a little while ago when it has a setup like that.
