Things to Look for in Cafe Chairs

Date Published 8th October 2015

It takes so much more than café chairs to make your restaurant, pub, hotel, or club run well. However, to ignore their importance when selecting items to stock your business venture would be a little bit premature. Chairs are more important than the average owner realises at first glance. The wrong chairs can be uncomfortable and uninviting, which can lead to people leaving far too soon. The following information will help you choose picture perfect furniture selections that are going to be just as appealing to your customers as they are to you.

How long do you want customers in your seats?

It all goes back to Goldilocks and the three bears. Dad’s chair was much too hard, while mom’s chair was much too soft. Baby bear’s chair, on the other hand was a perfect fit. Granted you cannot please everyone with the chairs you choose. Some people will find them more comfortable than others. However, if you choose chairs that are overly stiff and provide no give or comfort, you are going to have people who cannot wait to get out of their seats and move to a different establishment.

On the other hand, if you go with chairs that are a little bit overstuffed and completely comfortable and inviting, you will have customers who will linger for quite a long time. Restaurants make money by turning over seats. You do not want people who are going to order once and be comfortable sitting all day. Overall, find chairs that are comfortable without going over the top.

Where will you use the chairs?

The other factor that carries quite a good deal of importance is where you are going to use the chairs. Will you use them indoors, outdoors or both? If you are going to use your chairs or commercial barstools in your outside dining area where they will be exposed to the elements, then you need to make sure that the furniture you select can handle a hot Aussie summer.

How much is your budget?

As tough as this is to say, all businesses have budgets. Of course, everyone wants the very best. The problem is, you cannot always afford the best right out of the gate. Set a budget you can afford and choose visually appealing, comfortable, and sturdy wholesale hotel furniture that falls within your appointed price range.

Price matters. The economy, while looking up, has struggled greatly in the past few years. It is important to not dive right into hot water before businesses, on the local level, have a real opportunity to bounce back and get their legs under them for a while. Create a budget that may prove a little challenging but still allows you some creative license to get furniture that will really work for your business venture.

Whatever your furniture needs may be, from cosy and comfortable café chairs to industrial strength bar stools, it is worth your while to take a little extra time to explore your options, compare prices, and examine the warranties on the furniture choices you are most interested in purchasing. Always, however, stay true to the vision you have for your business — even when buying furniture.
