There are lots of things to think about when planning to open or renovate a cafe, though nailing the design and fit-out of your business is probably the first item you’ll want to cross off the to-do list. Once you’ve got the design of your cafe sorted, it makes selecting catering equipment, furniture and decorative items so much more straightforward.

Our full fit-out and design service is perfect for customers who are able to prioritise a budget for this initial outlay. The service is staffed by specialised professionals who can project manage on all aspects of your design, from overseeing the initial technical drawings and planning requirements to ensuring that all final deliveries of the equipment and furniture are successfully managed.

What Is The Free Fit-Out And Design Software?

We realise a full fit-out service can be a significant expense for some people who are in the early stages of starting a new business, when every dollar needs to be accounted for. So, we’ve created the Simply Stainless Kitchen Designer, free web-based software that allows you to experiment on your computer with furniture and appliance layouts for your kitchen space.

If you have thought through ideas on how you’d like your kitchen to function and how you want it arranged, then you can then design the space on your computer in your own time. The software is designed so you can try as many different configurations as you’d like before deciding on the one that’s best for your business. Once you’ve printed out the design, you can use it as your guide to fitting out the space, or you can use it as a starting point for working with a builder, designer or architect.

How Does The Software Work?

Using the free software is an easy and accurate way to put the design you have in mind onto paper. To use it, all you have to do is set up the size and shape of your space using the wall, door and window tools. Then, you can select products on the left of the screen and drag them onto your grid. Once you’ve selected your products, you can then move them into position and rotate them. Any products you no longer want can simply be dragged to the recycling bin on the bottom left of the screen.

You will need to be registered with Simply Stainless to save the design and print it out. Please click here to register; it will only take a few moments.

We’re always keen to hear customers’ views of the free software and any suggestions they may have on how it could be improved. Please get in touch if you’d like to share your thoughts with us. But first, have a little fun with the free software. Our Kitchen Designer Tool makes it easy to find the right fit-out for your commercial kitchen.
