I currently work in my home kitchen on my granite counter top. It works, but as my family of 4 comes home at the end of the day, I'm in everyone's way. Solution: I have a small home office right off the kitchen I can use. My desire is to do my baking in the kitchen and then decorate in my own studio. Out of everyone's way, where my supplies are, and I can shut the door.
My first step is to design my decorating station. I have been looking around at food prep tables and bakers tables, but I don't know what work surface is best. Bakers tables are typically a wood top, but would they pass safety inspections? I perceive them to be a porous hard to clean surface, therefore might I'd get in trouble for not being able to sanitize them appropriately? Another option was stainless steel. I've never worked on that surface so I'd be interested in getting input on that. It seems like a cleaner option to me. Or have I left another option out that I'm not considering?
Any input is greatly appreciated!
