After a few years the seating in a restaurant can become tattered and worn. This will make the restaurant look old which will discourage customers from eating there. There are many other places they can go to. As a restaurant owner, if you notice that the seating is getting old, you may want to consider a restaurant make-over and to reupholster the furniture.
Consider whether you are going to have an overhaul of the entire restaurant or just the furniture. If you are going to embark on a complete make-over then you will need the assistance of a shopfitter to bring your vision to life.
You will need to decide on the following. Will your logo and corporate image change? So you are going for a whole new look. Or will the logo and corporate image stay the same. So you are just uplifting the look of the restaurant.
For the furniture, you can reupholster the chairs and booth seats in the restaurant. The colour you choose can be in keeping with your corporate colours. However, it is recommended that you choose a darker colour for the seating so that marks are not too easily visible. So if your logo has blue and white in it, it would be ideal to select a dark shade of blue for the seats.
Next you will need to decide on the material for the seats. Will you go for a leatherette type of material or a fabric? If you have a lot of people visiting your restaurant then a leatherette type of material will be suitable because it can be easily cleaned. However if you have an exclusive restaurant where customers come for a sophisticated dining experience then you can go for a fabric seat on the chairs. In such a case you would need to take the chairs for a regular steam clean to ensure that they are properly cleaned.
When it comes to furniture upholstery there are many options regarding the colours and material you could choose. So make sure that you view the available swatches in order to make the best decision. After all it will form part of your new restaurant after the make-over is completed. Once the make-over is complete you may want to consider adding a few new items on your menu. Then you can relaunch your restaurant and invite more customers with special offers and new dishes to entice them to visit the restaurant.
