While cafe furniture varies in style and size there are some universal features that you should look for and it’s these that you should focus your attention on to ensure that you’re making a good investment for your cafe. So with that in mind, let’s take a closer look.
All cafe and bistro furniture should be strong with a high assembly build. While this is important for any type of furniture, it’s even more important for cafe furniture which needs to be able to withstand all the daily rigours of a busy environment. To ensure your cafe furniture lasts for several years always buy commercial furniture which is intended for the hospitality industry and purchase from a reputable retailer.
Another thing to bear in mind is the design of your cafe furniture. While you may serve the best coffee in town, if your furniture is looking old and battered, then customers are likely to go elsewhere. As well as replacing any worn out furniture make sure that your table and chair sets look up to date and inviting in their appearance.
Complements your interior
With so many designs it can be difficult to know which to choose and what would fit well into the interior of your cafe. The best advice we can give you in this respect is to focus first on what type of material you want your furniture to be made from. If for instance, your cafe has a traditional look about it with a classic unpretentious style, then we’d suggest you stick to wooden furniture or laminate. Classic styles like bentwood and ladderback work well together with timber table tops. If you’re trying to create a modern, light and airy ambience then consider Parisian chairs with stainless steel tabletops, which can be used indoor and outside to create a seamless flow from one area to another.
High quality and good finish
When shopping for wooden or MDF furniture make sure that it’s good quality and well finished. If you’re using it outside then ensure that it’s waterproof and UV resistant. Our Isotop table tops are a good alternative to solid timber since they’re constructed from an innovative material which combines plantation wood chip with resin and wax which are precisely moulded together and given a durable laminate surface which looks just like timber only it’s way more durable and effective for cafe use. Waterproof, UV resistant, and heat and stain resistant too, they’re suitable for indoor and outdoor use and can be wiped clean just with a damp cloth.
While you shouldn’t compromise on the quality of your cafe furniture it doesn’t mean that you can’t look around for furniture with an affordable price tag. Online retailers typically offer a better selection of furniture together with cheaper prices and this is because they deal direct with the manufacturers and don’t have the high costs associated with a brick and mortar business.
