There are many things to consider when deciding on your restaurant booth design. The booth design should match the look and feel that you want your restaurant to have. If you are going to incorporate booth seating into your dining area, it’s best to choose the booth size and design first, and then you will know what kind of space you are left with for the other tables and chairs since booths tend to take up the most space. They sit up higher than other chairs and their pattern and design are sometimes the first things that patrons notice. The color and design that you choose for your booths should also determine how you decide to decorate the rest of the dining room, since it should all match.
You should really choose your booth color scheme and design based on the kind of establishment that you operate. If the restaurant is casual you can probably get away with using bright colors and crazy patterns. However, the booths at an upscale restaurant need to portray that feel. If you are at all confused, as they say “keep it simple”. It’s far better to be conservative when it comes to the booth design that you choose than to have your patrons wonder, “what were they thinking?!” There are simple designs available that could fit into both formal and casual environments.
It’s also a good idea to keep it simple regarding size and shape. There’s really no reason to have a booth that fits more than six people. A booth gets less comfortable the more people that are added to it. Also, the bigger the booth, the less space there is for regular tables. Not everyone likes to sit in a booth so it’s a good idea to incorporate a combination of seating types into your restaurant.
