Spend a little more time working on your commercial grade furniture

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Have you spent the better part of your life dreaming about owning a swanky cafe in the city? Then you must have already thought about your dream location, the perfect menu and even worked on the layout a little. You must be spending hours on online magazines and design websites to look for the best design ideas to turn your cafe into the most cooling hangout zone for the young and the matured, alike. However, have you thought about the style of furniture and furnishing for the interiors? Where will your customers sit? Will you give them old-fashioned wooden chairs or the playful yet laid back beanbag experience?

1. Go commercial the first chance you get

Research shows that coffee shop owners spend the majority of their time thinking about the business process, raw material sources, hiring process and equipment budget. They do not spend a lot of time at the initial stages of planning on furniture budget and layout ideas. That is probably why a lot of coffee houses have recurring costs regarding the maintenance of indoor and outdoor furniture. Almost none of them get the sizes of the tables and the capacity of their establishment correct at the first go. For at least 70% of the coffee houses in the country, this is a trial-and-error method. There is nothing wrong with trying more than once, except it costs a business concerning money and reputation. If a customer does not find comfortable seating inside your cafe, he or she will not return. Additionally, unsatisfied customers are less likely to refer your business to their friends and family. In the age of social media entrepreneurship, an excellent review of a company can spread like wildfire. The influence of the evaluation will depend on your service quality, product quality, and ambiance.

Do you believe that a cafe can establish an ambiance without paying attention to its furniture choice? Here are a few tips to help you make the right decision at all times –

2. Always go for commercial grade tables

They are versatile, modern and heavy-duty. These tables are perfect for indoor and outdoor sitting arrangements. Most modern tables contain polymer-like materials or reinforced steel or weatherproof wood. It does sound a bit strange when a reputed restaurant interior decor company recommends wooden tables and chairs for the outdoors, but the modern ones are all waterproof and UV-resistant. They have a long life that can withstand a lot of daily use and abuse.

3. Consistency in choice

If you have seating arrangements indoors and outdoors, you must maintain parity in design and style. There are a few things you must learn before going out for patio furniture shopping. The cheaper deco tables and laminate tops are not fit for regular outdoor use. They experience considerable wear and tear that begins to show after a few weeks of use. If you want to save some money, you can choose furniture that you can use inside your cafe and outside on the curb. Resin, stainless steel, aluminum, powder coat cast iron and coated teak wood are ideal for the outdoors and the indoors. To find out more material options visit Cafe Furniture Melbourne.

4. Picking the correct table size

The size of table you select will define the look of the place and determine the comfort of your patrons. Find out all about your target group of customers. If the group mainly consists of couples and single workers, you may want to invest in smaller square tables. That will save you more space, and it might facilitate the introduction of standing booths. If you do not cater to larger groups or families, you can eliminate larger tables from the equation barring one or two at the end of the room. Barstools near the barista work wonderfully for entertaining a crowd of singles, who do not want to feel awkward sitting at a couple of tables or sharing their meal with other people. 

5. Mind that space

Every square centimeter of that floor space is going to be gold for you. It is the responsibility of a restaurant or cafe owner to make the best of the room available for accommodating their customers comfortably. The amount of space between each table and chair has a significant impact on the comfort level of a customer. That contributes significantly to the satisfaction level as well. In short, there is no aspect about seating, table and floor space that you can afford to ignore when you are setting up your cafe.

6. Find your style

After all the discussion about the different types of tables, chairs, and utilization of floor space, there is no way we can ignore the style and finish of the interiors. Working with an experienced and amiable supplier has many perks. You will be able to access an array of swatches containing some 100s of textures, patterns, and colors for the furniture, cabinets, equipment and the cafe walls. Establishing a sense of harmony between the components of your coffee counter and the equipment inside your kitchen is equally as important as serving the right orders to the customers. Picking a single style will help you streamline the process. That will boost a cohesive ambiance for the employees and customers alike.

Have you ever gone inside a cafe for a minute and then stepped right out, because the inside was too congested? Several studies show that many such situations could be avoided by rearranging the seats and changing the orientation of the tables. Some settings were more challenging since they demanded a realignment of the tables, standing booths and bar stools to a certain degree. However, the problem had nothing to do with the service or quality of the coffee. More often than not, people do not reach the ordering section before they judge the interior decor and the exterior setup of a barista. Thanks to pop culture, customers have a bright idea about how their favorite baristas and coffee shops look. A small deviation from this can break that expectation. It is straightforward to tumble and fall while taking the baby-steps in business but relying on commercial multi-purpose furniture can always be your support.
