Tips To Remember When Buying Restaurant Furniture

The world of food is one of most people’s dreams. From the managing the restaurant, and handling the staff to the food itself, no one would say that it’s an easy job. But regardless, despite it being so infamous as a tough field to survive in, people seem to be drawn to it.

Most successful restauranteurs will tell you that there are many reasons for a successful restaurant. Delicious and well-presented food, well trained staff, and of course, the location of the restaurant are some of the major reasons for a successful restaurant. Likewise, though not a big impact as the above reasons we mentioned, the furniture of a restaurant too makes a difference to the success of a business.

If you are looking to enter the world of restauranteurs and are looking for tips on how to buy the furniture, then look no further! Here are a few of our experts’ tips and suggestions on the topic.

Easy to clean and maintain

Regardless to whether it’s indoor fixtures, or outdoor cafe furniture, there’s no doubt that if it’s easy to clean and to maintain, it’s going to make your life (or rather, the lives of your cleaning staff) a lot easier. Not only will you have to use less man power for it, with the right furniture, you can even reduce the amount of time and effort spent on cleaning. Just make sure to have a once in 3 days inspection; this is to keep you staff on their toes.

According to theme

Always preplan your fixtures according to the theme of your restaurant. This means that you should also keep your intended customers in mind when you are furniture shopping. For example, if you are planning on running a family style restaurant, then you needn’t pay too much attention on bar furniture Brisbane. Also, chic, sleek and modern fixtures don’t go that well for family style restaurants either, as they are not child and spill proof.

The comfort of it

The restaurant is a place where you want your customers to linger and enjoy their meal. This is not going to happen if your fixtures aren’t comfortable. Whether you are looking for chairs or booths, whether it is modern fixtures you have in mind on a more rustic look; one thing to remember would be the quality and the comfort of the chairs. Also, remember to sit on each chair to “see” exactly what your customers see from their seat.

Buy wholesale

If you plan ahead, you can make a significant difference on the money you spend on your restaurant’s furniture. Try to buy your fixtures in bulk, as this plays a huge part in discounts. If not, have a lookout for furniture sales, and buy your restaurant’s fixtures when you find what suits it. Take your time with your fixtures; trust us when we say this matters.

Organizing A White Soiree

One of the most popular party themes today is a white party. White parties can be stunning when organized correctly and can look amazing in pictures. A white party is essentially a party at which all the party attendees dress in white and where all the decorations at the venue and even the cake is pure white. White parties take place in many different forms all over the world, sometimes in the form of birthday parties and sometimes in the form of fundraisers.

Allocate a budget

In the weeks before you begin planning your white party, you will need to allocate a set budget that you can spend on your party. However, once you have set your budget for snacks, cake, party hire equipment, waiter that can make special occasions run smoothly and other things needed for the party, it is vital that you stick by your budget and do not go over it.

What you have to keep in mind is that your only fixed cost will be your good equipment and everything else is flexible.

Food and snacks for your event

You can either choose to have a professional make your cake and snacks for you or you can ask a friend who loves to cook to help you in the kitchen to make your own snacks. However, one thing you need to keep in mind is that as all of your guests will be dressed in white, there are bound to be a number of food spills and you do not want to have a big percentage of your guests walking around your party with big noticeable food spills across their outfits. For this reason, it is important that you have as much spill free food as possible served at your event. Choose small food that has minimal amounts of sauce and other spill worthy things on it in order to avoid a lot of food spills. When choosing your drinks, keep the same principal in mind and choose drinks that do not have too many bright colours and that do not have the potential to have big spill stains.

Decorations for your event

Ideally, you will need to have your house or chosen event venue turned as white as possible. While it is perfectly understandable that you cannot paint your entire home in white, you could consider changing the table clothes, the cushion covers and even your curtains in to white alternatives. This will not only match your theme but they will also prevent any spills occurring all over your couch. For your decorations, you could choose white fairy lights and lace all around your venue with some fairy lanterns.
