The ultimate guide to restaurant furniture this Valentine's day

The ultimate guide to restaurant furniture this Valentine's day

Roses are red, violets are blue, is your venue ready, with tables for 2?

Valentine’s Day is one of the busiest days in any restaurant, hotel, bar or café. Couples descend in their dozens looking to spend some quality time together in their favourite eatery or watering hole. To ensure your customers have the best experience possible, have you thought about the layout of your venue and whether or not you have the most suitable restaurant furniture? Read on for our hints and tips on how to make sure your venue is Valentine's ready.

Some staggering numbers
Couples are set to spend a jaw-dropping £958 million on Valentine’s Day in general. Spending peaks the Saturday before Valentine’s to 55% more than on the average day, booking restaurants, hotels and gifts etc. Statistics showed that in 2017, £287 million was spent on food and £69 million went on drinks. Dating activity soars by 55% as well – So the question is, how can you make the most of these ready and willing customers?

Table for two sir?
Who wants to go for a romantic meal for two only to be allocated a table which seats four or more? Valentines is about intimacy and if you’re sitting a million miles away from your partner it just doesn’t create the desired atmosphere. Chairs and tables play such a central role in establishing the tone of your restaurant and the experience of your diners.

If you’ve got extra restaurant furniture stored away, bring out the tables for two and temporarily store your bigger tables away. Failing that, consider purchasing some new tables for two to ensure your venue is geared up for your awaiting customers.

Ambiance
When you picture a restaurant on Valentine’s Day, it wouldn’t be full of bright lights and stark design. Instead, the lighting would be warm and low with candles and flowers scattered around tables. Reds and autumnal tones immediately spring to mind which will create the perfect ambiance for this particular day.

Music can also set the tone for your customers so make sure you choose music which fits the desired mood. Your music should suit your brand and your décor but certainly on Valentine’s Day we’d stick to chilled, slow music rather than loud upbeat tracks.

Comfort & durability
Your customers will want to be comfortable and there’s so much choice of seating and different tables it can often be somewhat confusing. Make sure you not only choose the most appealing designs for your restaurant furniture, but also the most comfortable and durable. Contract furniture differs so much from domestic pieces which may only be used up to three times per day. However, furniture within a restaurant, café, pub, bar etc. could be used up to 15 times daily. Therefore, it needs to withstand constant use. Who would want to sit on a wobbly old table on such a special day?

Don’t miss the opportunity
As you can see from the earlier statistics, Valentine’s Day is extremely popular as people want to spoil their loved ones and are very willing to spend their hard-earned cash on meals, drinks and gifts.

As a venue, there’s so much you can do to gear up to Valentine’s Day to make sure you get as many customers as possible through the door. So, if your venue isn’t prepared for this period, make sure you start now. Nobody would want to turn customers away and you want them to have the best experience possible.
