It’s no secret that making the most of your space is the key to operational performance

A well-planned flow of interior space and a layout that's rich in ambiance and functionality will always be a winner in any club or restaurant. However, with varying room sizes, and new furniture designs, impediments such as pillars and doorways, and access to thoroughfares to consider, it's no wonder it takes time and resources to get it right.

Using floor space is critical to running a business both from an aesthetic and an operational point of view. The right design is critical to how the works for both your clientele and your hospitality staff.

The key factors to consider when designing space are:

  • The number of people the space can accommodate
  • Whether you trade in daytime or evening
  • The safety and functionality of the work environment for staff
  • The availability of storage area for excess furniture
  • Kitchen and staff movements
  • Customer accessibility requirements 
  • Creating a floor plan

Floor Plan Access Checklist

The City of Melbourne has created a checklist for restaurants and cafes to evaluate how accessible they are and check if they are meeting their legal requirements. We highly encourage that you go through this checklist:

Working with Interior Designers

Interior designers bring in a calculated and precise strategy for maximising your floor space with consideration of time and staff movement. However, another great benefit of using an interior designer is that they combine all elements for a venue such as the furniture, kitchen design, and lighting to create a seamless flow throughout your club or restaurant.
