I need a bit of advise

Like how big does the kitchen have to be to cook for up to about 30 children/10 staff

Do you work in feet or meters?

can u tell me now

Cos I am doing the floorplan for my nursery and I need to know how big the kitchen should be

9 by 12 is about 2.75 by 3.6m

so would 13ft by 8ft 6 work to feed that many people?

it is a bit tight but i manage it well
good luck
hope it all goes well

Would you like to pick the equipment to have in the kitchen??

If you are prepared to do the research & get prices and everything I'll pay......[hopeful emoticon??]

LOL are you offering me a job

seriously though just enough room for worktops, huge stand up fridge and freezer and shelves for storage
2 sinks
one for washing and then rinsing the dishes
and a big cooker

I need three sinks (one for hand washing apparently)

doormat Sun 25-Feb-07 20:19:59

hope it goes well
