Restaurant tables are a very important piece of furniture that is vital for every business where people can sit down and enjoy a nice meal, a cup of coffee, or grab a quick bite. Picking out the suitable size restaurant tables can be quite difficult for people who have to go through this process for the first time. If you want to make the best choice for your business, do not forget to read our tips for choosing restaurant tables!
Before you even start browsing on the Internet or looking at catalogs for restaurant tables you have to create a gameplan. If you are in the stage of choosing restaurant furniture this means that you have already found the perfect location for your business. With the help of an interior designer or by simply sketching out the space that you have, try to imagine where everything would go. For example, you want to open a small restaurant that has one large room for guests and bar area and one smaller space where the kitchen will be placed. You need to think about whether you will have only restaurant tables or you prefer people sitting on the bar as well. Do you have any outdoor space that can hold a couple more restaurant tables as well? What type of business do you have and what type of customers do you expect? You can choose to be an intimate restaurant that provides seating mainly for couples or small parties of up to 4 people – this means that you will need smaller restaurant tables. If you want to create a restaurant that can host larger events, then bigger restaurant tables will be needed as well. Do not forget to calculate the minimum required space between the restaurant tables for people moving around and the staff reaching the customers without any obstacles on the way. Answering these questions and drawing a map of your space will help you choose – the appropriate size restaurant tables or, if you decide to combine smaller and bigger restaurant tables where you will place each one of them; the specific number of restaurant tables needed which will greatly affect the budget and will either give you freedom to choose something more expensive or restrict you into more budget-friendly options.
There are many criteria by which we can separate the different types of restaurant tables. One of the most important is size. Knowing the different sizes restaurant tables, it will be easier for you to place them in the space that you have and host as many guests possible without being overcrowded. One of the most commonly used sizes restaurant tables is the two to four persons. It is usually consisted of a single or double table base and suitable tabletops that go with it. This type of restaurant tables, especially the size meant for 2 people, can come in various shapes of the tabletops – square, rectangular, oval, ellipse, and others. Usually, restaurant tables for four people are with squarish shapes so they can fit properly and create more space. In most cases these restaurant tables are using pedestal table bases in order to give the customers more leg space and to store the chairs underneath the tabletop. The next type are bar height tables which are more common in bars, but they can also be used as restaurant tables for catered events. Usually, these restaurant tables are combined with either a square or oval tabletop and can fit up to 4 people sitting on bar stools. Larger restaurant tables can also be found as family dining tables can accommodate larger parties of up to 10-12 people. Usually, these restaurant tables are found in banquette halls, but they can also be used in bigger restaurant spaces. In most cases these restaurant tables are rectangular or have ellipse tabletops and are made from many different materials. The next type are restaurant tables that are suitable for boots. Using booths is an easy way to create intimate space for your customers and in the meantime host larger parties without the need of a bigger restaurant table. Usually, the combination between restaurant tables and booths is found in smaller establishment or places with long and narrow construction of the room. Last, but not least, are the outdoor restaurant tables. They require a dedicated category, because of their many specifics – the materials used, the resistance that they have to have against water and sunlight, and many others. Outdoor restaurant tables are usually made from some sort of metal, like aluminum or iron, but can also be created from wicker and plastic. Choosing the most suitable outdoor restaurant tables follows the general rules with one addition – always look for quality construction and finishes that can withstand the weather.
Restaurant tables can be categorized by many other criteria, like material from which they are made, construction (monolith or in pieces), design (classical, modern), height, and many others. Choose the overall style and construction restaurant tables that you like with having in mind the space that you have and the quality of the materials.
