Hospitality & Cafeteria Tables

Cafeteria tables provide a comfortable space for employees to socialize, eat, and even collaborate on projects. Because they stand up to a lot of use, common materials include laminate, steel, plastic, and premium-grade plywood. Available in many shapes and sizes, it's easy to find something to fit any space, and some include matching chairs or stools for a uniform appearance. Staples® carries an assortment of break room tables and other furniture to accommodate work, school, and banquet areas.

Choosing Tables for the Lunchroom
The best type of table depends on the area and user needs. Metal stackable options work well in industrial environments and can stand up to the outdoor elements on patios or decks. Stain-resistant tables are suitable for businesses, restaurants, and schools, as they are easy to keep clean. Tables with bench seats accommodate a large number of people, and adjustable-height styles easily fit with a variety of seating options. Some taller models include footrests for increased user comfort.

Considering Additional Cafeteria Table Features
Folding options are ideal for smaller spaces or to have on hand when extra tables are necessary. Stacking designs also stow away easily in a closet or supply room for use during special events. Consider tables with non-marring floor glides that won't damage solid-surface flooring and those with self-leveling legs that work well on carpet and uneven ground. Many tables feature lockable casters that make them easy to move around when necessary but lock in place for safety. Powder-coated surfaces are resistant to scratches and other damage, which keeps them looking their best, while sleek laminate is simple to clean. Solid wood hospitality tables are ideal for use in professional conference areas or as an addition to front entries or foyers, and those with attached seats maintain neat and tidy rooms by keeping the chairs locked into place.

How Much Space Is Needed Between Tables?
When deciding how many tables to purchase for a banquet area or break room, it's important to consider the amount of space needed between each table and the size of the room. Place tables at least 52 inches apart. This allows 18 inches of space for each chair and a minimum of 16 inches between the backs of the chairs at each table. For spaces that require a service aisle, leave at least 66 inches. This provides 30 inches of space for waitstaff to maneuver.

What Size Table Is Best for a Break Room?
The standard amount of dining space needed per person is around 300 square inches. To seat four at a time, choose a lunchroom table that provides at least 1,200 total square inches. Smaller options work well in fast food restaurants and small coffee areas because the occupants don't typically stay very long.

What Does It Mean When Tables Are ANSI BIFMA Certified?
American National Standard Institute (ANSI) certification means products are safe, energy efficient, and environmentally friendly. Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association (BIFMA) standards refer to performance and safety. Furniture that meets ANSI BIFMA standards comes from quality materials that stand up well to normal daily use.
