2. Space layout, light, color in the space of coffee shop

2.1 Space Layout

When conducting space arrangement, arrange tables and chairs to prioritize creating a reasonable operation. Points to note in the operation of coffee shops include:

  • Between staff and the service area: Arrange ventilated walkways to get order and to transport drinks from the brewing (kitchen area) is easy, fast.
  • Between staff and customers: Arrange a reasonable space to ensure the comfort of the customer experience with the direction of the employee’s movement in order to not cause collision and make the most of the space of the shop.
  • Between customers and space: Decorate the space to express the exquisite aesthetic, distinct to help customers feel specific when using the service and create a unique impression helps shape the habit of choosing a favorite destination. Refer to coffee shop design ideas for your own good suggestions.

2.2 Colors

The color for the design is not only the choice of the mainstream tone, but also the personality of the investor wanting to convey into the works. Colors can bring a youthful, nostalgic or modern direction… The mission of the design Unit is the harmony between the requirements to create the design of the coffee in its own style, efficiency and distinct differences.

There are now coffee shops, such as brown or black, to respect the elegance and bold of coffee when designed to attract the group of customers who love to enjoy coffee. Meanwhile, with milk tea shops, the mainstream colors will be brighter like white, pastel pink, blue to create dynamic and modern to the audience.

2.3 Light

Lighting is an extremely important factor in determining the aesthetics of a coffee space as well as a customer’s emotions. For coffee shops, warm yellow light (2800k – 3400k – 4000k) is preferred. As the gold light shines on the drink, the food creates a reflection that makes the guest feel more drinkable, more sparkling and attractive. So in large coffee chains, we easily find the investor will arrange the warm golden light of the spotlight (light focus) on the drink, dish to increase the sensory effect.

In addition, the light also has another function that is support for the management. While the client area enjoying coffee using yellow light, the kitchen is used to use white light. The goal is to ensure sufficient lighting for employees to work as well as food hygiene and safety in the processing of beverages and dishes.

3. Selection of table and size

3.1 Number of tables and chairs

The choice of number of tables and chairs at the coffee also needs to have specific calculations based on the Rate of turnover (calculated at the break-even point) and Customer service area.

To determine the number of tables and chairs in the coffee so that reasonable investors and design consultants also need to pay attention to the turnover factor, the break-even, the food model and the drink will serve to the optimum approach.

For example, if the Coffee customer service area falls at about 300 m2, if you arrange the amount of 200 table chairs with a size of 500 x 500 mm will not be reasonable. Because there is no guarantee of operational requirements and the customer experience. You will have another option to reduce the number of tables and chairs to 100 – 150, or adjust the table size.

The number of tables and chairs at the design of Phan Ton Coffee has been implemented by I.F.D Group based on the space area and the requirements of the customer turnover.

3.3 Dimensions and material of tables and chairs

Currently on the market there are many materials that the owner can choose for furniture in the design of cafes such as wood, iron, fabric, leather,… Depending on the style and operating direction to choose the appropriate material.

For example, fabric chairs are often used with luxury customers in high-class cafes. Features of this seat are 3 layers: outer fabric, plastic layer and cushioning in the same. The outer fabric has a beautiful surface with many luxurious motifs. The plastic layer with good waterproofing, easy to clean and hygienic during the course of the master when having trouble pouring drinks or falling dishes to the chair. Finally, the inner cushion layer makes the product durable and not torn when the washing is dry and replaced. Therefore, their cost is very high, only those that have a large investment.

With the current table size in cafes that usually serve drinks or can be accompanied by snacks, the layout space on the table will not be much area. Usually the most common coffee table size is 500 x 500 mm. In addition, the choice of table size, the chair is dependent on the service model of the bar and the length of stay of guests at the restaurant (2 hours, 2 – 4 hours, 4 – 6 hours,…)

Usually the most popular coffee table size is 500 x 500 mm enough to showcase drinks and snacks
