Setting a proper floor plan is essential to being able to maximize future profits and minimize losses. Everything from the kitchen to the front door needs to be planned out and laid out in order to ensure that the restaurant follows a flow pattern that is going to allow the kitchen to run smoothly during food preparation and cooking as well as the flow in and out of the kitchen. Setting these aspects are going to be the largest drain on finances for any new restaurant.
The actual dining room floor plan is also important. The biggest thing that needs to be considered with this is the atmosphere. This decides the layout of the restaurant and ultimately determines the amount of funding that you are going to need and where the funding is going to be allotted.
Now it is time to play with placing furnishings in the floor plan. When the basic room plan is completed make a few copies and have fun designing the room for several scenarios as if playing with furniture in a dollhouse. Just as room was scaled to fit the floor plan the furniture must be placed in the room to scale as well.
Once you have identified this all_encompassing 'wish list' you will almost certainly find yourself over budget. If money is no object _ no problem, but if that Lotto jackpot has so far eluded you there are things you can do to bring that budget back in line. The most obvious and often least expensive way of doubling your floor space is to make use of the basement. A properly designed and finished basement is the perfect place to have a spare guest bedroom, home theater, hobby or play rooms, additional bathroom(s), laundry facilities or a home office.
