Choosing the correct size tables for your bar or restaurant can be quite tricky. It is important before choosing table tops that you consider the table height, covers, shape and overall look. Follow these easy steps to choose the right tables for your premises.
Is The Table for Formal or Casual Dining?
First you need to consider whether your table is for casual dining, possibly just snacking or drinking, or for formal dining. The type of dining will effect not only the size of the table but also the height. There are 3 main types of table height.
- Coffee Table height – Anything under 650mm – low and casual for drinking.
- Dining height 750mm – for eating a more formal meal/ drinking and eating causally
- Poseur height around 1100mm – tall tables for standing next to and placing your drink upon.
Number of Covers
When you have decided on what purpose the table has, formal or casual, work out how many you wish the table to sit, and then take a look at our table top buying guide to see the recommended table size.
The Overall Look of The Table Top – The Colour/Finish Choice.
This is a very important decision for the overall appearance. As the tables will be frequently wiped down and have food and liquid spilled onto them, it is important to choose table tops that are waterproof and stain resistant.
