5 Ways To Revamp Your Elementary School Cafeteria

5 Ways to Revamp Your Elementary School CafeteriaSometimes a change is just necessary. Maybe the lunchroom tables in your school’s cafeteria are super out of date or maybe they simply don’t accommodate the students as well as they should. Whatever the case, if you are looking for ways to revamp your school’s lunchroom, then School Outlet is here to help you do it.

Here are 5 ways you can revamp your elementary school’s cafeteria:

1. Out With The Old: Buy New Furniture

To revamp a lunchroom, the goal is to give a new and improved look, and feel, to the room. The easiest way to do this is to pitch everything that’s there now and replace it with brand new stuff. Take a good look at your elementary school’s lunchroom and take into account what you really need. Do your current tables have ample seats for your school’s students? Are the seats comfortable? Do you like the style and color of the tables? What about the layout of the room—what’s needed and what can change for the better? Consider all of this and make a list or mental note of what you really need. Then, visit School Outlet’s virtual school furniture store and find exactly what you need.

2. Mix It Up: Moving Furniture is Therapeutic

We don’t know about you, but have you ever felt the urge to rearrange the furniture in your bedroom or living room? Sometimes it just needs to be done and we’ve found that it’s a great stress-reliever. It’s the same thing for schools. Sometimes the same old same old gets OLD and a change is needed. That’s when we recommend to simply mix it up. Switch how the cafeteria tables and chairs are arranged to liven up the room a little bit.


Maybe you’re not ready to buy brand new lunch tables or you simply can’t justify that decision. If this is the case and rearranging the furniture doesn’t seem like the best idea or enough of a change, then add some decorations. Let’s say a holiday is coming up. It’s the perfect opportunity to add some color-themed decorations. Is it a big time during the school year, like homecoming or finals? Add some student-themed decorations, like something that highlights the sports or academic achievements of the students in the school. Decorations certainly revamp any kind of room and it gives kids something to look at when they’re in line waiting for their food.

4. Why Not Paint?

What is the color of the walls in your elementary school’s lunchroom? Could the walls use a little revamping? Perhaps this is all the room needs to get a little revitalization. Consider a brand new paint job for your cafeteria.

5. Make The Room More Exciting

There are certainly more than a few ways for a school lunchroom to be exciting. Whether it is the chatter of young students conversing over hot and home lunches or something else exciting happens during lunchtime, the room can always be more exciting and this might just be your solution to revamping the lunchroom. On the subject of excitement and making a lunchroom more exciting, we immediately think of furniture. But that’s just us. Perhaps consider adding unique furniture to the lunch room, like a hang out space for kids to hang out once they’re done eating. The possibilities are endless.
