GUIDE TO PROCURING RESTAURANT FURNITURE
While getting your hands on furniture for your restaurant may seem simple in theory, It gets complicated quickly. The furniture dealer or carpenter you know most likely would not understand the actual difference between residential-grade and hospitality-grade and figuring out where to source restaurant-specific furniture pieces like bar stools, counters etc is tricky, let alone much more intricate furniture pieces like bar counters etc
Other than your standard indoor furniture, restaurants are set up in streetsides, hallways within shopping malls, lawns, balcony areas & terraces. These pieces require commercial grade strength that your local restaurant furniture dealer will certainly not be able to fulfill
Moreover, for restaurants, especially fine dining restaurants, themed restaurants, diners, and youth-oriented cafes, small or large; the success depends heavily on the elegance, vibe, and overall look + feel of the place, to achieve a particular look, furniture, and fittings are some of the most important aspects and they also play a huge role in a diner's perception of the place. This also means that the specific restaurant interior design that you wish to achieve will be done through the furniture and the possible styles, designs, shapes, dimensions, and sizes of furniture is far too diverse to be catered to by a regular furniture dealer
But wait, customizing furniture tends to be very expensive, right? - Actually, no. Since we're a manufacturer, we execute bulk orders only, most restaurants have a bulk order of more than 15 table-chair sets which is adequate for executing any restaurant order. We use proprietary batch manufacturing processes for making this production cost-effective - its a win-win for everyone! restaurant interior designing useful. We’ve worked on furniture projects for restaurants that have helped them achieve tremendous cost advantage & source of better quality furniture.

Dining chairs, sofas, booth style seating, benches, outdoor bistro chairs and armchairs are among a few of them you've to consider
Before finalizing on this, having a floor plan or a seating plan for your restaurant is a prudent and wise decisions. Restaurants globally and even in India prefer to have multiple seating options to add to the aura of the restaurant and also to give guests a wider range of options
An assortment of dining tables for restaurants that you simply will not find anywhere else. From height adjustable tables & counter height tables to banquet and relaxed outdoor tables for rooftops and gardens.
Although wide range of customizations are possible, procuring tables is going to be one of the easier decisions. In all likelihood they only need a few adjustments for sizes
The only three considerations for a restaurant table is the height, the table top and the table base
Of these, the most important consideration from a design point of view is the table top, which is a make or break element. Marble tops are heavy and expensive but they're also jaw-dropping to look at. Mild steel tops are low cost but making them aesthetically pleasing will require additional costs
