Choosing Outdoor Furniture for Your Café

choosing outdoor furniture

Choosing outdoor furniture is an important decision that many café and restaurant owners have to face. An outdoor seating area is an important element of any dining establishment and helps to encourage new customers and increase profits, so getting your choice right is critical.

There are many different styles of outdoor furniture and many materials and colours to choose from. Some of the most popular include:

Rattan furniture

Rattan is a great choice for outdoor seating and dining areas since it is hard wearing and durable. Another benefit is that it can also be used indoors to create a cosy ambience. Commercial rattan furniture is ideal for busy cafes and restaurants since it requires very little maintenance and be easily wiped clean.

Good quality nylon rattan furniture is resistant to mould and rust which makes it an ideal choice for leisure centres and spas where the moist warm conditions may not suit other types of outdoor furniture.

Wooden outdoor furniture

Wood is a classic choice that has the ability to not look too modern or contemporary nor too traditional and dated.

One of the most popular woods used in outdoor furniture is teak which is heavy and dense. It’s also resistant to moisture and insects and more durable than many other hard woods. Since natural oil is found in teak, it ensures that outdoor teak furniture lasts for many years.

Wooden furniture is a great investment and if cared for properly needs little more than oiling or staining each year.

Not all venues are lucky enough to have wide open spaces with a great view to boot so the use of brightly coloured furniture can work wonders to enhance the atmosphere of an otherwise dull space. Not only are polypropylene chairs a good style choice but they’re practical too.

Polypropylene chairs are lightweight and easy to move around and since they stack to about 12 high, they’re easy to store too. The latest injection mould polypropylene chairs are incredibly durable but come with an extremely affordable price tag. With a plethora of styles and a rainbow of colours to choose from, you can afford to get playful with your outdoor dining space.

Aluminium tables and chairs
