As a restaurant owner, you have to have a lot of things in mind when you’re furnishing your restaurant. To have a successful business, it’s not enough to have a great menu and delicious food. You have to make your guests feel comfortable enough to want to come back.

When it comes to comfort, we’re talking about a multi-faceted feeling that cannot only be created by one thing. You have to ensure that your restaurant, diner, pub, whatever it is, has a good atmosphere where people will feel good. 

But, you cannot forget about your guests’ physical comfort, either.

People often make mistakes when they’re doing interior design, and opt for fancy, good-looking furniture that is so darn uncomfortable.

So, to save you from making that same mistake yourself, we’re here to give you a quick overview of what you should be mindful of when purchasing chairs for your restaurant.

Style

To get this out of the way right ahead, we’ll jump straight into the style of your chairs. This is essentially entirely up to your personal preference and the overall vibe of the space you want to achieve.

People often like to go with the grain and not experiment too much outside of the pre-made interior design styles, but it can be very fun to step outside of that frame and give your space a signature look.

Restaurant chairs can be a great tool for playing up the space, since they are relatively easy to switch around, and aren’t large pieces of furniture, so they can easily do the job.

Size

We’ve all probably been in situations where we fell in love with a piece of furniture that just doesn’t fit the space that we need to equip. Yes, it’s difficult to part ways with something that seems to fit just so perfectly for what you have in mind.

Maybe if we move things around, it can fit?

Well, it just might, but you’re jeopardizing spending money on a piece that probably won’t fit and will make a mess of the space.

So, save yourself the stress of that, and do the math first. Calculate how much space your chairs can take up according to the tables and the overall size of the room. That way, you can only search for chairs that fit those criteria and not risk falling in love with something you can’t have.

Don’t forget that you shouldn’t suffocate a space, but rather make sure that people are able to move freely, without feeling like they’re on a crowded bus.

Material

When you’re opening a restaurant, you’re going to be faced with a bunch of expenses, which can get a bit overwhelming. But, in all of that chaos, one of the most important things you can do is get good quality pieces.

Yes, it means that you may have to invest a bit more initially, but it will save you so much money in the long run.

There are certain materials that are more prone to damage, and then there are those that can withstand a lot of wear and tear. It goes without saying that you should probably opt for the latter.

Cotton, leather, and microfiber all fall into the durable category, but they can differ greatly in price. Leather is more expensive, but will definitely give you your money’s worth. Faux leather can be a bit tricky, so if you want that material, be wary.

Also, keep in mind that the material of your chairs has to be comfortable for those that sit on them.

Comfort

Last but not least, we have to discuss the comfort of your chairs. We’ve told you that the place needs to be comfortable in a number of ways in order for your business to flourish, so we’ll elaborate a bit more here.

Style can trick you very easily into buying an uncomfortable piece of furniture that will be a nightmare to sit on for those that came to your restaurant to enjoy your food.

The thing is, you can have the most amazing, gourmet food, but if your guests leave with a backache, it’s unlikely they’ll be back.

So, opt for chairs that have enough padding, that have good back support, and if possible, even armrests.

Just think of what you want after you’ve had the best meal of your life – definitely not a hard, uncomfortable chair to sit on, but a comfortable seat to digest your food in peace.
