A Quick But Comprehensive Guide To Booth Seating

booth seatingAs business owners, you’re probably already aware that the cafe floor/dining area is the main revenue producing element in your business. Therefore shouldn’t it be laid out with both efficiency and comfort in mind? One way to add both of these elements without it costing you the earth is through booth seating. It’ll save you considerable floor space meaning that you can offer more seating to more people therefore optimising your profit base. What’s not to like about that?

If you are considering booths however there’s a few important factors that you’ll need to know. Firstly there may be a lot of unfamiliar wording that you’ll need to get to grips with especially when it comes to the various types and sizes of booth seating and with terms like single, double split and deuce, it can become confusing. Let’s take a quick look.

Booths known as deuce booths are the smallest of the booths consisting of single seating in booth style where two people sit across the table facing each other. A single booth is used at each end of a row of booths and has just one back and one seat. Double booths are in effect two single booths built back to back. Finally split booths provide booth seating on one side of a table only so that the other side can be filled with chairs.

Secondly, each booth can come in a variety of different sizes and heights giving you lots of spacing possibilities.

A quick word about space planning…

It’s key to the whole concept. The good news is that even if you haven’t got the first clue about space planning there’s a multitude of information on the internet in good old plain jargon. In addition many sites also show some great examples of how it’s done. When it comes to it, it’s always best to draw out your plan visually, rather than simply keep it in your head. You might decide to use pen and paper, or if you’re a bit more technically minded, a desktop drawing program. If you’re still unsure you can always hire the services of a professional designer who will make sure that you’re fully optimising the space that you have and that it works for you.

Finally, once you’ve carried out all the ‘dirty work’ it’s time for the fun part…shopping!
