How to Decide on The Right Chairs for Your Café

Nowadays there are so many café and restaurant chairs to choose from that it can be difficult to know where to start. What shape, what size, and what materials are all things you need to consider when making your choice.

What you need to do is to find the option that best suits your personal preferences as well as the style of your business. Whether you would like metal or wooden chairs, a simple design or something more ornate, will all be reflected in the price, so your ultimate choice may well be determined by your budget. Here are a few factors to consider which will help you narrow down your options and make it easier to source the right chairs for your café.

What’s your style?

Before deciding on your café chairs you need to consider the type of café you’re operating. For instance, a traditional café will look totally different inside from a bistro style café and as such each one will have chairs that are more suited. For instance, a bistro may well suit metal chairs best whereas a traditional café needs richly stained upholstered wooden chairs to fit the ambience and décor.

What’s your average customer spend?

Secondly, give some thought to the prices on your menu and how much a customer spends on average. This can help you to decide the type of décor that your customers will be expecting. Knowing this will help you better decide the type of furniture your customers will expect to find when they come through your doors. It makes sense that customers who are being charged top whack for coffee and snacks will expect the furniture to be good quality, attractive, and fitting with the décor.

Know your clientele

Finally, to get the right ambience, the right furniture, and décor you need to know your clientele. Are they young professionals, families, or retirees? By knowing who your customers are, will help with your choice of chairs and tables. Young professionals will likely prefer a sleek contemporary décor, perhaps with tub chairs and sofas, whereas if your customers are mainly families with small children, we’d recommend durable easy to clean laminate tables combined with easy to clean metal chairs. An older client base will probably appreciate wooden, upholstered chairs which offer good support and are easy to get up from.
