Although technology has made it possible for a wide range of other materials to be used in the production of cafe furniture, wood is still one of the most popular choices out there. Who doesn’t love the warmth, feel, richness, and finess of a piece of timber furniture?
If you’re rocking a nature inspired theme for your cafe, then there’s nothing to beat wood which can totally transform the ambience of your interior, making it feel warm, welcoming, and organic. Wood isn’t a fad either – it’s been used in furniture making for centures and creates a timeless look that can’t be replicated.
Here are some other reasons to use timber in your cafe’s interior:
Strength and durability
Wood is a long lasting robust material which surely is what most cafe owners are looking for in their furniture. The durabiity factor also offers excellent value for money and relatively easy maintenance, since most timber can be wiped over with a soft damp cloth to remove any food particles or dust, before being finished with a soft dry cloth.
Look and feel
Wood has all the appeal of nature, bringing it indoors, whether it be dark or light coloured wood.
With a wide range of shades and hues and a lively assortment of patterns, grains, and fibres, it brings character to an otherwise bland setting.
Much of our timber furniture has been responsibly sourced with the trees that have been harvested replenished by newly grown forests. What’s more the carbon footprint of wood products is much less than other building materials, making it an obvious choice for anyone concerned with our planet.
Since wood comes in so many colours and shades, there’s a wide variery when it comes to styles of furniture and different looks within individual ranges. This makes it easier than ever to fit in with your décor and sof furnishings.
Unlike many other materials wood looks good in practically any setting. Light ash wood for example, lends itself to modern, minimalist cafe styles, whereas dark oak or walnut adds warmth and richness to a traditional setting. Wood can also be combined with metal, to create industrial style furniture which is very much on trend right now.
The versatility of wood also extends to the great outdoors. When treated with oil, wood can withstand the harsh australian climate. Furniture made of teak, for example, looks lovely sat on a balcony or outdoor terrace – Just perfect for relaxing in the sun with a glass of something long and cool.
