Having the right setting in your restaurant can give your customers the best possible experience. Your dining and front of house areas should be welcoming and comfortable, and your kitchen space should be built with efficiency and flow in mind. Restaurant design as a whole is so important for so many reasons, so we’ve put together a few factors to implement in the design stage, or if you’re planning a few upgrades.
Seating and dining areas
Getting the right balance between the amount of seating you can fit into your space and keeping customers feeling as comfortable as possible is so important. Having enough customers in your restaurant is needed to keep business running and make a profit, but your customers’ needs must be prioritised.
Depending on the type of restaurant you have, your dining areas may be different. For example, fine dining restaurants have a bigger focus on ambience and overall customer experience and satisfaction, whereas bigger chain restaurants may want to pack more people into the space they have. Finding the right balance depending on what your customers expect from you can bring a much better dining experience.
Heating and ventilation
Whether your restaurant and kitchen is brand new or already established, getting your heating and ventilation just right can create more comfortable environments for both staff and customers. Kitchens can release lots of smells, heat and smoke, which needs to be dealt with and controlled using the right ventilation.
Air conditioning and heating at the appropriate times of year is also important to make your customers feel comfortable when dining with you. Poor ventilation and air conditioning can cost you sales if customers seek more comfortable restaurants to dine in. If we can help with your ventilation or you have any questions, do get in touch.
Kitchen design and layout
The processes that go on behind the scenes of a restaurant should be organised with the correct storage spaces, stations for preparation and service, as well as for cleaning and washing. Restaurant kitchen design and layout can make or break the success of your kitchen, which is why it’s a good idea to think about any improvements that can be made before issues arise.
Whether your restaurant is big or small, there are ways to really optimise the space you have depending on how you work.
