Banquette Buying Options
26 Apr 2016

Banquette Buying Options

Banquette seating has found popularity in many different settings. Traditionally used in diner style cafes, it has become popular in cafes and restaurants, coffee shops and fast food restaurants.

It has also become an increasingly common sight in waiting rooms, in offices, and even in staff canteens. In fact, the convenience of banquette seating, and the fact that it can offer a lot of seating in a relatively small space, means that it has also started to make an appearance in home kitchens and kitchen diners. If you are looking for contract furniture for your business, then look no further than banquette seating to make optimal use of existing space, to offer a good looking and convenient furniture layout, and to enjoy the benefits of durable furniture that is easy to maintain.

Before jumping in an buying banquette seating, you should ensure that you have an accurate and reliable floor plan. Your floor plan not only needs to include vital information like entry and exit points, but it needs to highlight areas that people will need access to. Staff may need access to kitchens and serving points, while customers will want access to the toilets as well as the bar. The actual areas that your employees and customers need to access will depend on the type of business that you run, what you are using the seating for, and the exact layout of your premises. This is why an accurate plan, with accurate measurements, and that includes features like columns and walkways, is so important.

Banquette seating has a tall back, and there are certain restrictions regarding the design that cannot be avoided. You can, however, choose the length of the seating unit, and you can also enjoy some control over the exact height of the seating back. If you are creating booths, and are placing two banquette seating panels back to back to effectively create a makeshift wall, then you may want to use lower backed seating to avoid having your customers feel like they are penned in. Alternatively, tall backs can give a real sense of privacy, so choose according to the ambience you are aiming for.

You can also choose the design and style of the seating itself. Ribbed, partitioned, or buttoned are some of the design options, while leather, leather style, and fabric are among the material choices. You can also opt for the colour or colours that best meet your branding and interior décor, and it may even be possible to have bespoke designs, which can incorporate a company logo or be used to ensure that you get exactly the colour and designs that you want.

The cushion style is another important consideration. Standard cushioned seats will provide comfort for a reasonable length of time, but if you want to offer even greater comfort levels, or you expect your customers to be sat in the seats for a prolonged period then you should opt for helical sprung seating. This style offers a greater cushioned effect, providing higher levels of comfort and more enjoyment for your customers.
