Très Chic: The Allure of Glass Room Dividers in Restaurants
Restaurant owners wanting to increase their revenue and gain more space may think that renovation is the only option. However, glass panel dividers can allow for the instant transformation of a space without having to close for costly renovations and while saving owners money.
A Larger Space
Unlike solid walls or dividers, glass room dividers allow natural light through, above, and around them. This makes the room feel lighter, larger, and more open while allowing the space to be subtly divided. The perception of a larger space can make it more inviting to customers who prefer a certain level of privacy when dining, but without interrupting their line of sight. This allows diners to enjoy their experience without visual distraction.
Because glass doors and dividers don’t swing outward like traditional doors and, instead, sit near the wall and slide to the side, more total square footage is available. This also contributes to the size of your space.
Utilizing glass to separate the space in a restaurant allows you to make the most of that space. You may notice that a certain area isn’t as popular with diners as another due to its proximity to the kitchen, for example. Placing a divider between the kitchen entrance and the dining space can resolve this.
Dividers can also help create more space, such as in preparation areas. If you need to expand your preparation area during busier times, glass allows you to do this for as long as the space is needed.
Using glass to divide your space allows more natural light to pass through your establishment, which means you won’t have to illuminate the space with artificial lighting. Additionally, because cool and warm air can flow above and around them, your air conditioning and heating system won’t have to work harder to regulate the temperature of the space.
Products like movable wall panels can allow restaurants to generate more revenue by allowing them to instantly divide the space into private areas for special events. As an event is happening on one side of the panel, regular dining can continue to be offered in the remainder of the space. By using several wall panels, a space can be divided further, providing areas for several private events simultaneously.
Restaurants wanting to modernize their space need look no further than the sleek elegance of glass. Available in may transparencies and styles, glass can effectively add chic as it cleverly partitions any area. Unlike trends which can come and go, glass is a timeless yet always stylish addition to your establishment.
