Whether you’re starting out from scratch or up-grading your cafe furniture, it’s likely that your plans will involve choosing new cafe chairs. Now this might seem an easy task, but what with the wide array of colours, materials, and styles to choose from, it can be a bit of a headache knowing which to choose.
Personally, we think that metal chairs and stools make a great choice of seating for any cafe and if you’re looking for something durable, something a little different, and something that’s reasonably priced, then metal is definitely the way to go.
Metal chairs are more superior to wooden chairs in terms of durability when welded joints have been used. The weld at the joint where different parts come together hold much better when they’re welded than when they’re glued. However, we would recommend that you err on the side of caution when choosing metal chairs or stools that utilise a nut and bolt to secure joints. These are likely to require regular maintenance in order that the joints stay tight, and consequently safe, for your customers. Typically, you’re more likely to find this nut and bolt construction in chairs for the home kitchen or dining area.
Jazz up your space
Another great benefit of metal chairs is that they can be finished in a variety of colours from black to pink to blue. This gives you the option of using brightly coloured chairs or stools to either complement or match your décor. Bright colours such as red can add a feeling of warmth and yellow metal chairs, for instance, give a feeling of happiness since they mirror the colour of the sun. In addition, many metal chairs have plywood seats which can be padded with foam and covered with vinyl. Since this fabric comes in a variety of colours, you can easily choose one to blend with your décor and/or other furnishings.
Wide range of styles
What we love about metal chairs and stools is the variety of styles too. Whether you’re looking for an antique style or something more modern, you’re sure to find it in metal. If you’re after something a little quirky, then hairpin stools make a good choice or if you’re seeking a style that is easily recognisable, then Tolix is a winner every time.
Lower in price
Finally, metal chairs are surprisingly affordable when compared to high quality wooden chairs. The durabililty and price of metal chairs can make them a great choice for your existing cafe or new business, and having narrowed down your search, they will save you time and money.
