  • If you don't have a lot of space, you'll have to choose smaller pieces or look for furniture that has multiple functions (like a coffee table that also doubles as storage). You can also go for booths as they don't consume much space and can provide multiple sitting options. Booths can be placed along the walls in parallel manner or like an aisle.    
  • If you have intermediate space then you can divide the portions of your space according to seating capacity just like a separate cabin couples, A space for a group of 4-5 or 6-7 friends, or separate area for family sitting and dining, this will also provide privacy to the visiting customers.
  • If you have a large space available then you should proceed for multiple activities for crowd engagement. Organize small stand-ups, music night, poetry nights or anything and keep a separate area for that which can be enjoyed from any corner of your restaurant. If you have a lawn then prepare it for outdoor dining with relevant furniture and other pieces,

2. Budget: Set a roadmap for your cafeteria or restaurant on how much you will spend and on what things, consider those things on most priority which can provide comfort and ease to the customer. 

  • It's important to set a budget before you start shopping so that you don't overspend on unnecessary things.

So the conclusion is to prepare a budget plan and then proceed  for this until and unless you have a good experience in the hospitality industry. 

3. Style: Before making a purchase for your furniture you must decide a theme for your indoor or outdoor place that suits the overall environment. The color and themes of your furniture should match or show resemblance to your wall designs, ceiling design or any other element you are using.

  • The furniture you choose should match the overall style of your restaurant. If you have a more traditional style, you'll want to look for classic furniture. Makeup a theme which resembles or gives a vintage. If your style is more modern, you can go for more contemporary furniture which is now available in an exclusive range in the market.
