Restaurant Furniture | 3 Golden Rules To Boost Your Café Business With Restaurant Chairs

by Catalina Gomez

Choosing your restaurant furniture will impact the way your café does business. The right type of restaurant furniture will attract the right clientele, while the wrong kind may attract no one at all to your café. Not only do people want to enjoy good food and a cup of coffee, but they also want to sit in comfort with the right kind of ambience. These golden rules are designed to help you boost your café's business by choosing the right type of restaurant chairs.

Consider The Style Of Your Café

Before choosing the style of chairs, take a moment to consider the style of your café. Are you looking to create a rustic feel? Or are you looking for a shabby chic vibe? Are you planning to create special zones for formal business meetings and lunches or are you looking to create a casual feel throughout your café? Answering these questions will help you determine the ideal chairs you need. For example, if you are looking for an elegant antique finish, then deep-coloured oak chairs may be what you're looking for to attract a high-profile business clientele. If you're looking to create casual and comfortable appeal, then you'll want to choose wider chairs with plenty of cushioning.

Let Your Clients Determine The Upholstery

Your desired demographic will determine the type of upholstery you choose for your café chairs. For example, if you're looking to attract children and parents for a quick bite, then you'll want to choose low maintenance upholstery like faux leather because children tend to spill food. Faux leather can easily be wiped down in comparison to cloth upholstery. If you want to attract business clients, then you may want to choose darker coloured chairs for a more formal setting. If you want clients to drink only coffee, then plain wooden chairs will suffice, but if you want your clients to spend more time ordering food and drinks, then look for chairs with ample cushioning for better comfort. 

Create Specialised Seating Zones To Expand Your Demographic

Owning a café gives you the flexibility to focus your efforts on attracting a larger demographic for different purposes. By creating specialised seating zones in your café, you will demonstrate the ability to cater to a myriad of clients. For example, you can create a zone dedicated to businessmen for breakfast meetings or working lunches by setting up sofa booths with ample table space for working on laptops. You can create another zone with narrow chairs set up against round tables to encourage quicker coffee sessions between teenagers. Creating specialised seating zones will enable you to expand your target demographic for boosting your café business.   

Choosing restaurant furniture requires careful planning and consideration –– use these rules when planning the chairs for your café.

Seated With Style: Latest Trends For Furnishing Spaces

Hello. I’m Paul. I’m a house builder and in recent years, I’ve loved the trend in which indoor and outdoor areas have become blurred to make versatile living spaces. I really enjoy visiting my clients after the house is finished. In particular, I like to see the creative ways they use furniture to enhance these flexible living spaces. Surprisingly, there is no single trend in the way that these houses are furnished. Wooden, plastic and metal pieces can all be seen and people use a mix of modern, upcycled and older items. From discussions with clients, I’ve learnt a lot about different styles and suppliers of quality furniture. For others out there who are looking for furniture or simply fascinated by the incredible range on offer, I’ve started this blog to share the most interesting ideas I come across. I hope you enjoy my entries.
