Planning the interior design and layout of your restaurant is one of the most important aspects of running a successful restaurant business. To meet the various requirements of your customers, you must opt for versatile and multifunctional furniture pieces that are comfortable, inviting and goes with the theme of your restaurant furniture pieces. From selection to design, layout should be top of mind when choosing what you want to buy for this space. Planning for restaurant tables and chairs is different from buying residential furniture. Choosing commercial-grade furniture is an excellent idea, as it can easily withstand the heavy usage and demands that busy restaurants face.
What does Commercial Grade Furniture mean?
The manufacturing processes for commercial and residential-grade furniture varies significantly. Firstly, commercial-grade tables and chairs are specially built for sturdiness and adaptability to suit every space perfectly. They can resist a considerable amount of wear and tear. Because of their high-quality construction, they still retain their original appearance after many years.
Another advantage of having these high-grade features installed is that they require minimum maintenance. Since high-end materials are being used, these features are non-corrosive, water-resistant, and UV resistant, making them ideal for indoor and outdoor areas.
What are the different types of table styles?
Based on the space available, the type of ambiance you wish to create, and the setting you need, there are several different types of restaurant tables you can choose from.
Here are 5 options you can choose from:
1. Two to Four Person Tables
One of the most popular table designs, the two to four sets, is generally sold as two separate components-the base and the tabletop. The tabletops are available in a wide range of wood finishes, resin, laminate, and granite. You can customize the tabletop with your own specific logo or design as well. These tables vary in size, from 24X24 inches (square) to a 48X36 inches (rectangular).
The round ones are available in 24 to 36-inch diameters and can comfortably accommodate two to four diners. In most cases, the tops of these tables are attached to pedestal styled bases. You can opt for stainless steel, aluminum, or cast iron bases. It would be best if you opted for commercial-grade tables that are explicitly designed to withstand multiple purposes.
2. Bar Height Tables
The high top and bar height tables are generally used in pubs or sports bars. To create a high top table, the top is fitted to a 41-inch base. You can either opt for round or square tops. You must understand the specifics of the base to effectively determine the maximum size tabletop that can be used for it. A footrest is often installed at the bottom. In most cases, bar stools are used for this kind of table.
3. Family Dining Tables
The large dining tables that can comfortably accommodate eight to ten people are installed in banquets and party halls. These tables are often round or rectangular and are available in a wide range of finishes. Large restaurants generally utilize these family-sized dining tables to mark specific areas.
If you wish to create an intimate dining space for your guests, booths can be a great choice. The tabletops are secured to the walls, with bench seats placed on either side to create a row of booths. Some restaurant owners opt for booths to create less traffic. Booths are good for spaces that are small as it gives a more cozy and comfortable feel and offers privacy to customers.
5. Outdoor Tables
To create an outdoor dining space, it crucial to install weather-resistant chairs and tables. Some of the most common materials include aluminum, wicker, and wrought iron. While selecting outdoor tables, you must take the size of the area as well as the weather conditions into consideration. Areas that receive sunlight could have umbrellas installed for increased comfort. Another great tip would be to install stackable furniture. This way if your restaurant or café is located in an area where furniture needs to be stored or stockpiled, it will be easy and efficient.
