The Complete Guide to Designing a First-Rate Kitchen for Your Office

What Does an Office Kitchen Need?

A beautifully designed kitchen won’t be much help if it doesn’t have the right appliances, so it’s important to choose the right ones based on your space, budget, and team size.

We’ve organised the main appliances into three lists below: essentials, recommended, and optional. Essentials are what every kitchen needs, no matter the size. Recommended appliances are worth considering if you have the space, and optional extras, while not necessary, can add a nice touch that your team will likely appreciate.


  • Countertops
  • Cabinets, shelves, drawers
  • Refrigerator
  • Sink (with hot and cold water)
  • Microwave
  • Kettle


  • Vending machine
  • Boiling and sparkling water taps
  • Free snacks or fruit display
  • Catering station
  • Toaster
  • Ice machine

How to Decorate an Office Kitchen

While it’s important to focus on functionality, don’t overlook the impact of aesthetics in shaping a welcoming workspace. Here are some tips for decorating your office kitchen:

1. Choose the Right Colour Palette

Choosing neutral colours like white, beige, or grey is usually a safe bet, as they’ll provide a clean and professional backdrop for your kitchen. You can then liven things up with pops of colour on accent walls, appliances, or decor. Consider the psychology of colours – blues and greens can bring a calming vibe, while reds and yellows can spark conversations and creativity. Just be mindful of your branding and the colours in the rooms around your office, and pick a scheme that matches or complements them.

3. Choose a Cohesive Theme

Select a design theme that blends in with your overall office decor – this could mean something modern, rustic, or anything in between. Keeping a consistent aesthetic enhances the visual appeal of the space while creating a more harmonious atmosphere. On the flip side, a mix of styles can make the space feel disconnected and awkward.

5. Personalise the Space

Encourage employees to make the kitchen their own by adding personal touches like bulletin boards or a communal whiteboard. This brings character to the space while fostering a sense of ownership among your team.
