A floor plan will allow one to see exactly where furniture should be placed in a room for optimal design. With a plan of action no longer will there be a letdown when the delivery of the new furnishings come only to see that they will not fit into a room or even through the door or up a staircase. With a floor plan one will know that instead of a sofa and loveseat maybe only a sofa and a chair will work in the allotted space. When purchasing a dining room table, by having a plan one will know exactly what size and shape table will fit perfectly in the room. Before buying a king size bed that will not fit, with a floor plan one will know that the bedroom may only fit a queen size bed comfortably with one tall dresser instead of a long triple dresser.
Take some time out to visit restaurants in your area, this is another simple way to look at samples of restaurant floor plans. Carry a notebook to take notes on the floor plan you are reviewing, go buy a cup of coffee, and analyze their floor plan and ask yourself again, what is good and bad about the floor plan and what would you change to maximize sales and minimize losses for their restaurant. In doing this you are getting ideas on what to do and not do to your own restaurant.
The ranch house floor plan was the American Dream in a box from the late 1940s to the mid 1960s. Sliding glass doors, kidney shaped swimming pools and back yard patios created a new informal way of entertaining guests. Though the ranch house floor plan was the embodiment of casual living, most homes of that era lacked architectural details that would make them memorable. By the 1970s, the ranch style house was replaced by the split level home with Colonial or English details. The 1980s saw a reversal of the ranch house floor plan formula that included showy front entries with grand staircases and vaulted ceilings while the back of the house was left almost naked. The only remains of the ranch house floor plan today are the open floor plans, great rooms and hearth kitchens and the current popular trend of an outdoor room. All leftovers from the original ranch style housing era.
Without doing this there is no way to ensure the proper flow of traffic and the atmosphere of the restaurant and it can also have a serious financial effect. So make it your business to take out time to review several sample restaurant floor plans before you make any final layout and design decisions.
