In recent blogs, we’ve talked in abundance about how to maximise your restaurant space with the best restaurant furniture in terms of space and ergonomics. We’ve touched on style and in this blog we will venture further into how to choose the best furniture for your venue to enhance your restaurant’s brand. We’ll discuss the various different styles and the types of restaurant furniture which could feature within this environment.
What are you trying to achieve?
You need to understand your own brand. What are you trying to achieve from your restaurant? Are you a high-end establishment or a cosy bistro, perhaps a fast-food establishment? Are you looking for modern appeal or a more traditional ambiance? Whatever you are or are aspiring to be, you will need fitting furniture to enhance your brand and style.
The term traditional really refers to new furnishings which appear old, almost like perfectly preserved antiques with no marks or scratches but are extremely fitting within a traditional environment. Consider ornate chairs with dark wood stain, along with leather or even velvet upholstery. These materials will give your restaurant an opulent and charming look and feel.
The industrial effect has increased in popularity over recent years and gives an establishment a trendy vibe. This look is often characterised by features such as exposed brickwork and pipes especially when combined with restaurant furniture of a similar ilk. Think metals and stark woods, tin and aluminium. Although this may be thought of as a cold and uncomfortable environment, it can actually create the best ambiance and most warming of environments. Compliment with some low level hanging lights in a similar material yet contrasting colours and there you have it, the perfect setting.
