Chairs may seem like such a simple piece of furniture to buy but if you are talking about commercial stackable chairs, there are more considerations to think about than when choosing chairs for your home.
Understandably, there are many benefits to stackable chairs when used in a commercial setting, none more so than that of space. Being able to stack chairs means that you can vastly increase and decrease your space as and when you need to. This is ideal when your seating requirements need to change on a whim. However because café chairs of this nature are typically being handled a lot, you need to ensure several factors are present before you part with your hard-earned cash.
Stackable chairs should be scratch resistant
Naturally, stackable chairs need to be scratch-resistant. Materials like injection-moulded thermoplastic polypropylene or tightly woven polyester known as textaline, offer some the best solutions.
Stackable chairs should be lightweight
Although a solitary chair may be pretty easy to move around when you times that weight by say, 6 or 12 then it stands to reason that the lighter the chair the better. Lighter chairs tend to be made from aluminium or welded fibreglass to give you a combination of less weight and durability. Avoid wood or heavy plastic as you might just regret it later.
Stackable chairs need to be comfortable
Despite the fact that commercial chairs of this nature need to wear many hats, perhaps the most important thing is that people still need to want to sit on them. Thankfully, gone are the days of rigid hard chairs and in their place are plenty of contemporary and comfortable options that support the back and rear, rather than hinder it.
As a top tip, try one and sit in it for a while. If you feel comfortable in it, chances are that your customers will too.
The truth is that with modern-day stackable chairs you can invest in contemporary seating that can complement your existing café or restaurant furniture, or décor. This means that you can have flexible and co-ordinated seating options as and when you need them.
