How to Choose the Right Furniture for Your Venue

When you opt to open your own bar or restaurant, there is an abundance of things for you to take into consideration to ensure you make the venue inviting for future customers. Alongside the food and drinks you serve, the colour scheme throughout and getting the ambience just right, choosing the right furniture is also incredibly important.
With this in mind, we here at Eclipse have highlighted below a few tips we believe will help you on the way to getting the furniture just right in your setting;


The first consideration you must make is the amount of available space. The last thing you want is to pack your venue out with tables and chairs, leaving little room to manoeuvre and ultimately having customers sitting on top of one another.

Carefully consider your space and plan out where tables with chairs could be located, the number of bar stools you can have along the bar without blocking corridors and if you have enough space left for the addition of comfy sofas. By doing this, you’ll be able to make the most of every area of your setting at the same time as creating a comfortable environment for customers to enjoy.

Style and Look

The next thing you undoubtedly want to take into account is the style and look of the furniture. The appearance of your furniture should blend in seamlessly with the look and feel of your restaurant or bar, so whether you are opting for a traditionally designed interior or something a little more modern, you need to ensure your furniture matches.

For instance, contemporary all metal chairs are going to look out of place in a fine dining establishment, yet will perfectly suit a retro diner, whilst classy upholstered chairs are far more suited to fine dining than the rigours of a diner.


The most important thing when it comes to choosing your chairs is that they are comfortable. If the chairs you choose are uncomfortable, the chances of customers returning to your venue again in the future are certainly going to be affected as their time spent with you will not have been as enjoyable as it could have potentially been.


Nobody wants a wobbly table that leads to their drink spilling everywhere or their food sliding from one side of the plate to the other, so ensure all tables are strong and sturdy, as well as situated on a flat surface for the complete convenience of your customers.
