A terrace is the face of your business, say hospitality advisors Rein Rambaldo and Rolf Hopman. “It is often the first that guests see when they come to your business, so make sure that it looks very neat,” says Rambaldo. “Even when it’s raining. People get on the basis of your terrace, nevertheless, an idea of what it looks like inside.”
The first Scoutmaster in the design of a terrace, always looking at is the function. “It Is a passantenterras where people take a quick drink, eat and continue again, it is a borrelterras, or are you really going to sit down to eat? Depending on directs you to the terrace.”
Both Scoutmaster as Rambaldo is in favour of sitting areas. “Care for the chairs, one (beer)bank, and more luxurious seating areas,” says Rambaldo. “Everyone, young and old, feel welcome.”
“Consider also the walkways”, advises Scoutmaster. “With high or low seating areas next to walkways, customers will have less burden of langslopend staff. At the edges, you can get lower seats drop.”
