Every restaurant sets out to create a unique culinary journey for its guests to enjoy and every detail is carefully scrutinized during the planning and design phase to ensure everything fits just right. How will people feel when they enter the restaurant? How will they feel when they are seated? Will they appreciate the design and ambiance? Will they enjoy the food and appreciate the service? So much of the experience takes place seated around a table and therefore it only makes sense that this detail of the design also needs careful consideration on how it will impact the overall dining experience and brand identity.

Restaurant table tops that are handcrafted from high quality materials speak volumes to your patrons. It makes it clear that this is a place that took the time and went the extra mile to create a special environment for its guests. Reclaimed and sustainable wood restaurant tops are a natural choice when it comes to creating a warm and inviting space that people want to revisit over and over again. The character and charm of the woods radiate naturally and allow people to be comfortable and enjoy the company they are sharing an experience with.

The natural look and feel of wood on the table tops plays well with other elements in the space like concrete, brick or stone. Wood tops are sustainable design choices that everyone can appreciate and choosing to have the tops custom crafted utilizing reclaimed woods takes in one step further. The character found in reclaimed wood tells a unique story and sparks conversation from guests.

There are some many beautiful kinds of wood available in a wide range of textures and colors that can help shape the design and tie the details together. For example, a farm to table restaurant may find that a rustic reclaimed wood tabletop will be the ideal choice to set the organic and natural tone of the restaurant while an upscale steakhouse might find the traditional walnut tops helps create that classic look and feel.

Mixing the original colors found in each species of wood can be used to draw additional attention to the unique restaurant tops. Each species carries different character and tones that can be blended into a harmonious medley. The tops can stand alone and utilize a simple base or the tops can be anchored to solid steel frames to create an industrial vibe in the restaurant. The wood becomes part of the identity of the space and helps tell the story to each and every person who visits.

The design of a space creates the first impression and is an extension of the hospitality one can expect to receive when they walk through the front door. The details are what sets one apart from the next and wood tabletops are one of those special details that people recognize. That being said its important to make sure the wood tops stand up to the test and for that reason, a commercial grade finish is applied that is specially formulated to protect the woods in high use settings. This will protect from spills and routine cleaning of the surface while keeping the natural look and feel of the tops in tip top shape for each and every guest.

It's the impressions that stick with people as they come and go from the restaurant and tell family and friends about the experience. A positive brand atmosphere is typically not achieved by chance, but rather by careful planning and attention to every detail. It may seem like a small or insignificant detail, but when you consider that the majority of time spent at a restaurant is sitting at the table, it's important to get it right and make sure that this surface fits with the brand identity.
