When designing a restaurant, there’s a lot to consider. From the food to the design- it’s a tough task. But one crucial element in restaurant design starts with your customers, if you don’t have customers then you don’t have a thriving business-right? The most important aspect of a restaurant (aside from the food) is seating because where will your customers go to relax and enjoy their food? To help, below we have four tips to consider when designing seating for your restaurant.
What is Visually Appealing to You?
As a restaurant owner, there’s a particular style and vibe you want your space to have. For seating, it’s important to keep in mind what you want your restaurant to look like in terms of style and feel. Do you want large communal tables? Do you want the area to look more spacious? Do you want high or low tables? The possibilities are endless.
Consider Your Customers
Restaurants have a constant flow of traffic coming in and out daily. Sometimes customers will have strollers, some will be in wheelchairs, or some may have walkers. It’s essential to take accessibility into account as you want all your customers to feel welcomed and at ease in your restaurant. You want them to focus on their dining experience and not how they’’ maneuver around the seating area!
Will You Host Large Parties?
If you want your restaurant to host larger parties or groups of people, it’s important to have comfortable seating arrangements for them. If you have a party of 25 guests, you want them to have space and comfort without feeling cramped.
Think About Privacy
Lastly, do you want your restaurant to have a more private atmosphere? From business meetings to date nights, to close family gatherings- having private seating can be a bonus for your business. Seating such as booths or having privacy dividers can offer a more private experience for your customers.
