5 Top Tips for Choosing Commercial Tables and Chairs

From selecting the design to choosing from a vast array of sizes and materials, every element needs to be carefully considered so that it matches or complements the design, function, and layout of your dining space.

Choosing café chairs and tables is quite different from choosing furniture for your home. The best results are always achieved from buying commercial furniture which is designed for frequent daily use by a large number of people.

If you’re getting ready to open up a new café, then one of the most important things to consider is your interior design and your café layout in order to purchase the right type of furniture to meet the demands of a diverse clientele.

Benefits of using commercial grade furniture

Different manufacturing processes are used for commercial furniture and it’s built to be sturdy and versatile. It can resist wear and tear and remain looking its best with a professional appearance. Most commercial tables minimise maintenance and almost all of them are non-corrosive, UV resistant, and durable.

Before choosing your furniture, you should:

Create a layout plan

Plan your café layout on a piece of graph paper. By putting in the correct measurements and scaling down the plan, you can play around with shapes and sizes to determine the best layout and how many tables and chairs you need, of what size.

Decide on the right material

It’s important to choose the right materials for your café furniture to ensure furniture longevity and reduce maintenance time. Some of the most common options include wood, metal, wicker, and plastic.

Find your style

Whether you’re creating a new space or up-grading your interior, it’s often worth checking out the latest trends. You can’t go far wrong with classy wood but metal furniture is very popular right now too. Whatever style you choose, it should match any other furniture and fit in with your theme or décor.

Find the right size

When deciding on the size of your tables we always recommend a choice of table sizes. Our small 600mm tables are great for optimising floor space as they can fit into tight corners and recesses, and if you place a candle on the table, it’s perfect for romantic couples. Tables seating 4 people are another good option since they can be pushed together quite easily to make a large communal table. Communal dining is still very popular and is a great way of seating solo diners and freeing up your tables for 4, giving people a choice of seating options.

By taking into account the above factors, you should be able to narrow down your search in order to find the right café furniture. Just be sure you purchase from a reputable retailer such as Café Furniture Brisbane.
