In working with a small area, you want to avoid wasting any space. The first step is to start with a Plan. Ask yourself what the function of the space will be and what size of an area each space needs to be. Will you be using your space for entertaining, including a dining area, bar area, or lounge area with a fire pit? Or will it be an open lawn space for children and dogs to play? Or perhaps a combination of both? Once you decide what you want your space to be used for, it will be easier for you to come up with a design. Keep in mind that dividing your space into a series of smaller spaces can make your yard feel larger.
Create Focal Points. Use multiple focal points to move the eye around the yard as opposed to one larger focal point. For example, you may choose to have a beautiful standard tree, or a bird bath, or garden ornament placed throughout your different spaces.
Scale. Consider the size of your space when selecting patio furniture and other garden elements. It is necessary to keep them in scale with the area. For instance, when choosing patio furniture, keep in mind you want enough space around the perimeter of the set to walk freely when the chairs are pulled out. Or consider a set that has seating that can be “tucked away”.
Choose garden elements that have Multi-functional Features such as a built-in bench that doubles as storage or a small tree that can be used a focal point, but also blocks an undesirable view.
Use of a Colour Scheme. Incorporating an accent colour from the exterior of your home into your garden colour scheme will make your space feel larger. Also, using a darker colour on a fence can make it seem further in the background than a lighter colour might.
Container Gardening can be excellent for small spaces. The use of raised planters as well as groups of pots of varying sizes and heights in clusters will draw the eye upwards, highlighting the height of your space.
You may not be able to change the size of your yard, but maintenance will go a long way. Pruning and cleaning out brush, leaves and debris can create the sense of a larger space.

Arranging your seating area is a crucial part when setting up your restaurant. It will affect the restaurant performance and customer experience, so you better get it right!
What operating hours?
This is the very first thing to take into consideration when creating your sitting area.
Do you serve breakfast, lunch or dinner? Perhaps you serve all of them? In that case, the preparation time between each shift will be short and you will need an optimal set-up to allow your staff to operate faster. This means, you should allow enough space between the tables for your staff to pass through and access the kitchen, as well as adequate chairs to tuck under the tables and keep all paths clear.
What type of cuisine?
The way you arrange your seating area depends on the kind of food you serve. Serving huge seafood platters or extra-wide pizza? You definitely need enough space for wide tables.
Offering take-away food? Then you won’t need as much space because your customers won’t stick and simply rush in and rush out.
What serving dishes will you use?
Think about the plates and cutlery you will use. Wooden boards, for instance, are on trend. They look great but are quite space consuming! As much as we love them, we agree they might not be the easiest kind of dish to use.
You should have a clear idea of the kind of food you will serve and the plates you will use to do so.
What table top sizes?
Once you have defined all the above, you can start thinking about your tables. For your information, the standard size is 60 x 60 cm and it comfortably accommodates 2 persons. Then you can find the 70 x 70 cm, as well as 80 x 80 cm dimensions, ideal for 4 persons. Finally, the communal tables are just perfect for larger groups.
Ideally you should select tables that you can easily move around to create different configurations. Square tables allow you to do that as you will be able to join and align them easily, which makes them ideal if you expect larger groups. Round tables do not offer this flexibility but are great for smaller places such as take-away shops and cafes.
No matter what combination you go for, bear in mind you need a variety of table sizes and shapes suitable for small and large groups.
How many table can you fit in?
Now you know the shape and the dimensions, you can define how many tables. We recommend you to leave at least 1.6 meter between tables to allow customers to pass through and staff members to circulate and operate smoothly.
It has to be commercial
Sure there are some great looking tables around but unless they are marked up as commercial grade you really are wasting your money if you purchase them for your cafe. You might wonder what the difference is. Well, it’s all in the design which is specifically for furniture which is to be used regularly on a daily basis and allows it to stand up to the hard wearing, high volume demands of a bustling cafe. In addition commercial cafe tables are more versatile since you can buy the bases and tops as separate items or as a package. In addition, with such a wide range of table tops available to choose from, you can create anything from a traditional to a funky look and anything in between.
Choosing the correct size of table not only has an impact on the look of your seating area but also affects the comfort of your customers. For example, our 600mm table tops are purely suited to solo diners or couples who are having little more than a coffee and slice of cake to eat. Great for slotting into corners and recesses they also provide a more intimate dining area. Our 700mm and 800mm tables on the other hand, offer far more space for two or more customers eating a meal on a larger plate with perhaps a side dish, and one or more beverages. They can also be pushed together to create communal dining options for large parties.
We also have other nice coffee table and can different finish color for your choose,welcome you view our website: www.cdgfurnituregroup.com
If you’re anything like me you prefer to sit inside a booth area within a cafe whenever possible. Indeed, they’re usually the first seating that fills up inside any cafe or restaurant. If you’re with a couple of friends then sitting in a booth makes the space feel more private and lets you feel you can confide any problems or share a joke without everyone around you being privy to the conversation. That said, having the right booth design can be a big factor in allowing for customer comfort and for waiting staff to be able to serve guests. It’s important for any cafe owner to have the correct booth specifications, precise measurements, and the right style of booth table to ensure that their venue gets the most from their seating.
Leave sufficient gut space
‘Gut space’ refers to the amount of room allowed from where the customer’s back hits the booth seat to the top edge of the table. The last thing you want is to have your booth seating installed only to find that it’s such a squeeze for customers to get seated that they simply up sticks and leave. In general consider leaving a space of around 50-55cm to allow plenty of room for movement.
The good news is that booth space for 4 people takes up considerably less floor space when compared to open seating, which means that a cafe owner can ultimately cater for more customers and increase their revenue.
Consider using rounded corners
Rounded or radius corners are a good way for cafe owners to ensure that their customers are more comfortable and as its name suggest doesn’t feature any sharp edges. Consequently customers won’t find themselves bumping into unforgiving corners which can make it difficult to squeeze into a booth and may also bruise their legs.
Clipped corners are a good feature
A booth table with clipped corners is another great option. Basically this style of table features corners which are clipped to a 45 degree angle. Not only does this make it easier for customers to access their table but waiting staff will find it easier to serve their guests drink and food too. Typically this is just one detail that enhances your customer dining experience and one that is worth while considering when planning your booth installation.
Use the right base
It’s important in the hospitality trade that the right base is used for cafe tables and is essential if your seating is to work. It’s a good idea to fit a cantilever base in order to maximise comfort and space for customers. These bases offer plenty of leg room as well as plenty of support even under pressure. In addition this type of base is easier to clean, meaning that waiting staff can turn around a booth quickly and efficiently.
Sometimes, however, a cantilever base isn’t the best option. If you’ve got rounded booth seating then there’s no way that your table can be connected to a wall. Instead you’ll need a sturdy single column base with either an X-style or disc base. This gives good support to the table and still allows plenty of leg room for customers.
The benefits of booth seating are clear for all to see. Not only are guests comfortable, but cafe owners will find their business runs more smoothly and that their well designed booth makes customers want to return time and time again.

Selecting commercial bar stools might be more complicated than you think. Style, color, design …, we believe you already have a rough idea of what you want, but did you consider what height it should be? Do you want your stools to swivel? Should they have armrests?
First of all, you should know where you will place your commercial bar stools. This will help you to decide on the colour and the style you need, especially if you divide your space into different areas with different themes.
A light colour might fit here next to your window but a darker colour might be better at the back near your bar area.
The height will also depend on the positioning of your commercial bar stools, as well as the countertop or the tables you will use. Indeed, remember to allow enough space for customers’ legs between the top of the seat and the bottom of the countertop or the table. It sounds pretty obvious but some restaurants and cafes seem to forget about that!
Select stylish commercial bar stools but please don’t cut on comfort. Comfortable stools = happy customers = returning customers.
If you can, select commercial bar stools with padded seats and offer an amazing seating experience to your customers! They will be able to sit for a longer period painlessly and enjoy their meal. This is especially important in bars and pubs where you expect your clientele to sit for a while.
In restaurants, however, you might get away with slightly less comfortable commercial bar stools since the bar counter is not be the main area but just a transition when people wait till their table is ready.
The swivel option allows your customers to move from side to side without having to move the base of the commercial bar stool, which can be extremely convenient at times.
Bar stools with swivel will be great at the bar counter but you might want to keep them away from your tables – customers might not enjoy spinning around while eating!
#5 Footrest & Backrest & Armrest
Often underrated, footrests are so important! They allow your customers to sit comfortably without having their legs dangling till it hurts. Female clients wearing heels all day long will love you for that!
Same with backrests, they can bring some extra comfort, a plus your customers will find valuable!
Finally, armrests are also comfortable and they look good. Just be aware they are more challenging to fit correctly as they don’t tuck under your counter or your table.
