Having an interior that doesn’t match the type of dining experience that you’re offering can leave customers confused. After all, can you imagine visiting a swanky new restaurant in town whose décor and type of furniture is best suited to a fast food chain?
A cafe or restaurant’s overall concept incorporates everything from the food being served to its seating. Each type of eating establishment has different needs and we’re going to use this post to give you a clearer idea of what type of seating to match with each type of dining.
What’s the best style of seating for fast food establishments?
The main criteria for furniture in a fast food establishment are that it is strong, attractive, and easy to clean. There’s no need to worry too much about comfort since customers will only be staying a short time.
You don’t want customer lingering for too long once they’ve finished their food especially if they’re taking up a table that someone else could be using. Fast food is all about quick turnover. A high volume of short visits means that tables and chairs are constantly being turned around and therefore durability is key.
Which chairs are best suited to cafes?
Customers either expect to either choose their food and drinks and take it away, sit and work at their laptops for an hour or two, or relax by socialising with friends. If they’re staying for a while then their comfort is key and it’s best to offer a variety of seating so that customers can take their pick.
How about casual dining chairs?
The aim of casual restaurants is to create an enjoyable relaxed ambience coupled with tasty affordable food. Very popular with millennials casual restaurants need a unique design to stand out from the crowd.
Chairs designs should be contemporary and trendy. If your chairs can be upholstered then why not consider matching the fabric pattern or colour with your interior or use this as a way of trying out a fabric that is totally different and which makes a bold statement?
