Summer’s here at last and Christmas is fast approaching. What better time to celebrate this time of the year than by up-grading your cafe furniture and creating some great outdoor dining space? After all, you don’t want to be an empty cafe over one of the busiest times of the year, due to not having an inviting outdoor space.
People are attracted by busy cafes, so your outdoor space needs to be buzzing. One of the best ways to attract customers to your outdoor space is by making it look clean and inviting. Nobody wants to sit in an area strewn with litter or at tables that are dirty and chairs that look as if they’ve seen better days.
Be Sure You’re Buying Outdoor Furniture
When choosing new cafe furniture for your outdoor space it’s important to choose furniture that is intended for outdoor use, so be sure to read the description carefully before parting with your money. Polypropylene and metal are two of the most popular choices of material for outdoor furniture but you can also consider treated wood or rattan. Each has their own set of advantages and disadvantages but often the choice is just down to personal taste.
Add a Touch of Parisian Flair
If you’re looking to bring a European flair to your outdoor space then Parisian chairs are always very popular. Our range of Parisian chairs have all the charm of the traditional rattan variety that you see lining the streets of Paris, but they been given a modern and practical twist. The frames are made from tubular steel and powder coated to look like cane and the ‘rattan’ is made from nylon which is more durable and easier to maintain than traditional rattan. Lightweight and comfortable to sit on for longer periods of time, these chairs can also be used indoors, if you’re looking for a seamless flow from one area to another.
Be Adventurous, Be Bold
Polypropylene is another contender for outdoor spaces. Plastic was once thought to be a budget option for seating but nowadays polypropylene is a force to be reckoned with and comes in a huge range of attractive styles and gorgeous colours. Take our Belle chair, for example. With its slatted backrest and generously sized seat it comes in some fabulous bold summer colours including blue, orange, green and red, as well as neutral tones including white, black, charcoal, and latte. Even better, at just $45 each, they won’t break the bank either.
How About Some Stools?
Stools are another great choice for outdoor seating and can be tucked away beneath tables when not in use. Perfect for creating a casual ambience, they’ll be loved by younger clientele. Our latte stools in red are a real steal, priced at just $27 and as well as adding colour the removable lids offers some useful storage space too.
Don’t Forget Your Tables
It’s important to invest in hassle-free table tops for outdoor use as this means staff can quickly clean tables with nothing more than a damp cloth. Our Isotop table tops come in a wide range of colours, patterns, and sizes, and with a variety of table bases, you can mix and match to create just the look you’re after.
The Finishing Touches
Cafe tables and chairs sorted, all that’s left to do is invest in some colourful parasols and dot around a few planters filled with lush flowers and foliage to create a beautiful outdoor space that will be filled with happy smiling customers.
