What Wood Tables Say About Your Restaurant
When it comes to putting furniture in your restaurant, you may lean towards wooden tables for a variety of reasons. They are affordable, add character, and can help with an array of themes. When you choose to put wooden tables in your restaurant, do you know what it’s really saying, though?
It’s important to know the statement you make with all of the furnishings in your restaurant. Too much stainless steel can make your restaurant look cold and uninviting. Too many decorations may show that you are trying to hide something.
Wood is capable of working with a number of different themes, including rustic, western, vintage, all-American and more. You can choose to paint the wood or keep it all natural. Colored wood can help you to create even more themes – and make it easy for people to identify “their” table – such as going to the red one or the blue one.
When you choose to use wood tables, it shows that you don’t care about all of the modern things. You could have chosen to go with stainless steel tables or even glass surfaces. Instead, you decided to go with a material that has been used for thousands of years.
You can then choose to customize the look of your restaurant even further once you have the wooden tables in place. You can add cloth or paper tablecloths or placemats, add a glass surface over top of the wood for easy cleaning, and much more.
You are in control of what your restaurant tells people. Wood tables are a good place to start, but it’s not the end of your journey. It’s important to be creative and know what you want your restaurant to tell people.
Once you set up your dining room with wood tables and get them all set with place settings, you may be surprised by all the great things your tables are telling your diners. Hopefully they are saying, “come in, sit down, and enjoy the great food.”
