If you’re revamping your café or starting out from scratch you may be considering some changes to your seating. Here at Cafe Solutions we’re pleased to announce the arrival of our black booth seat. Booth seating is typically a bench style of seat which is placed either side of a table fixed against the wall and which offers an alternative to 4 chairs being placed around a table.
There are several reasons to choose booth seating in your café including:
- Booth seats are visually appealing and more comfortable than the average café chair.
- They also break up what can be a monotonous setting of tables with chairs placed around them.
- They’re ideal for families with young children since the child can sit on the inside against the wall with no danger of them falling off a chair
- They’re also great space savers
- Can offer an intimate dining area complete with a wall sconce or pendant light set over the table to isolate small groups of diners
Booth seating can be useful in smaller cafés or spaces which don’t allow for the conventional set up of tables with chairs around them. The lack of bulky chairs means that the tables can be placed against the wall and the booth seats sat on either side to cram in more bodies.
One rising trend in 2015 is that of the sharing platter and booth seating is a practical option for this trend since a single large table will allow plenty of room for platters of food and elbows, and the bench style seats allow for families or groups to enjoy sitting closely together and tucking in.
Things to consider when choosing a booth seat
If you’re using a free standing booth seat then it pays to consider details such as the angle of the back for comfort and whether the seat has a rim to hold the cushion in place. Sometime booth seats can be quite low slung so take your measurements to ensure that it is high enough for your table. You also need to consider the design of your table because as people will need to slide into the seat they don’t want to be tripping over table legs. Consider tables with inset legs, pedestal or trestle style.
If you’re investing in booth seats then be sure to choose one with a washable cover. Our black booth seat has a leather look vinyl cover which can be easily wiped down with a damp cloth to remove any spillages or sticky finger prints.
