In the rapidly expanding world of cafe industry, there is no dearth of themes and corresponding selection of furniture to dress up your cafeteria. There’s a deluge of styles, colors, make and materials used for these cafe tables and spiffy chairs which could baffle you fast if you do not outline your requirements. We discuss the following considerations which must be made before shelling out those big bucks to purchase your cafeteria essentials.
Available Space – Nothing works if your floor-space is not smartly utilized. Cafeteria floors tend to be small, and busy. A disproportionately large couch, or too many of those round cafe tables could hijack those vital corner-spaces, making it look cramped and stuffy. Divide the space up into small, snug islands. The seating of popular choice is a comfy couch for booths and small modular tables with two restaurant chairs for couples. This would allow you to fit in more people while also letting smoother flow of traffic, and easier access for cafeteria attendants.
Crowd demographics – It is a vital ingredient in picking your interior design equipment. You could either go classic with lots of mature and burnt hues, or vibrant with warmer colors and modular designs. Needless to say, the age-group of your customers should govern whether you want that lemon yellow cushion on your restaurant chair or not!
Ease of Maintenance – far too often, the glamour over-rides the functionality. While cafeteria of today is an experience, we still need to ensure longevity for our investment. So while a milk-white upholstery on your cafe furnituremight look stunning against your dark red walls, it might be worth it to swap the colors so you don’t have a hard time cleaning (or hiding) those coffee spills. Zipped covers could be another great alternative allowing you the flexibility to experiment with multiple patterns.
Weather –A vital factor for the purchase. In the humidity of Florida, you are well-served not selecting wicker for your outdoor patio restaurant chairs and cafe tables. If your eatery is in Seattle, metal might be a good material, rather than wood to withstand the frequent rains. And in windy Chicago, flyweight aluminum-make patio chairs might fly away in a typical late evening gust. Think about your location, your weather conditions and decide whether you are going to place your furniture indoors or outdoors?
Price–Of course! Ultimately, it all boils down to getting the best worth of your budget. Lavazza will spend a few thousand dollars more to merely maintain its exclusivity. Starbucks would not need to; they will open five outlets in a block instead. If you own a small neighborhood cafe, you probably can’t afford to do either. So travel a bit more, seek out inexpensive but good-looking material. Remember the old adage “class and comfort can’t be purchased.”
The choice of cafe furniture would rely on each of the above factors, so sell the mood and people would return to those plush surroundings again!
