More often than not, booths get classified as the seating of choice for diners and cafes. They are more casual than the expensive wooden chairs of fine dining establishments, more comfortable that industrial metal chairs of urban eateries, and generally easier to maintain and clean. But booths don’t just have to be for family friendly restaurants or highway chains. The right booth can create a very intimate setting for your diners and make your restaurant something unique.
The high-back design of booths allows you to create a mini, private dining room for your guests. It shields them from the noise of the rest of the restaurant, and keeps external distractions to a minimum. Both of these things are very important for creating that intimate experience. Corner booths can even be enclosed with cloth hangings, truly separating the diners from the restaurant.
Booths don’t have to be made of the cheap vinyl we all associate with a fast-food restaurant. They can be made of quality wood and leather, lending an elegant and expensive vibe to the booth. They can also be upholstered to match the rest of the restaurant’s décor.
You can also opt to include two person booths as opposed to the traditional four person booth. This smaller booth style is perfect for couples looking for a romantic night out. You also save a little floor space and the four person booth for a four person party.
