Seven guidelines for the ideal office cafeteria
With courtesy of upstartoffice.co.za
FOR MOST OFFICE WORKERS, THE LUNCH HOUR SIGNALS A WELCOME BREAK FROM THE DAY’S HARD WORK. BUT NO ONE WANTS TO SPEND THEIR PRECIOUS LITTLE LEISURE TIME IN A STUFFY, DRAB, UNCOMFORTABLE SPACE. FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES TO CREATE A PLEASANT, VISUALLY STUNNING ROOM WHERE HARDWORKING EMPLOYEES CAN RELAX AND RECHARGE.
1. Space to move
There must be adequate space for employees and catering staff to comfortably move around the cafeteria. Avoid adding too many pieces of furniture or appliances which may obstruct movement.
2. Just enough seats
Use the space carefully so that as many tables and chairs as possible can be accommodated without making the cafeteria feel overcrowded.
3. Convenient serving area
This area should be able to accommodate a large number of people, without straining service. There should also be enough space for appliances that hold the hot and cold foods separately.
4. Staff-friendly kitchen
The kitchen layout must offer a comfortable setting that supports the speedy service of orders.[
5. Essential appliances
Ensure that the cafeteria design includes enough space for all essential appliances, including a refrigerator, stove, oven and appliances to keep foods hot or cold as needed.
6. Practical floors
Very importantly, the cafeteria’s floors must be slip-resistant. Also opt for floors that make cleaning spillage easy and that resist dirt accumulation.
7. Aesthetically pleasing environment
Create a comfortable, relaxing area with the right ambience. Incorporate pleasant colours and add a strong statement piece or design that ties the whole colour scheme together. Choose furniture and accessories that fit the chosen theme.
