How to Select Outdoor Restaurant Furniture

Appearance of your restaurant matters a lot when attracting customers and the furniture you have has a big impact on the overall aesthetics of your establishment. When choosing furniture, there are a few factors to consider so that it elevates the aesthetic of your restaurant.

You should consider the dimensions of the space available when you choose furniture.

Always think about how people move through the place and how much circulation space has to be kept for people to move comfortably. Once you take this information into consideration, you will be able to get a rough estimate of the seating capacity. But make sure you draw the dimensions of the tables and chairs you plan to add to the space on a piece of paper with a scaled plan. If you have a good idea of the layout and the sizes of furniture you need for the space, you can even mark the layout on the floor using some masking tape or painters tape so that you can move through the space and get a better understanding of whether there is enough space between the tables. You should also consider the surrounding factors when creating a layout. Think about the shape of the space and the amount of sunlight or shade you get. Cluster more tables in areas of shade and use umbrellas in areas with a lot of sunlight.

Durability is an important factor when it comes to outdoor restaurant furniture Melbourne. There will be so many people using the furniture and they will also be exposed to the elements each day. You need to choose furniture that is made of materials that can withstand outdoor conditions. Some examples are synthetic wicker, wrought iron, teach and aluminium. Look for materials that are resistant to fading, rust and corrosion. Consider the pros and cons of the materials and think about what fits your requirements when it comes to maintenance, style and lifespan. You should also think about how the furniture will be used. They have to be comfortable enough that customers can enjoy a meal without distractions. You have to think about the ergonomics of the furniture you choose. You can visit the showroom of the supplier to see whether the heights of the tables and chairs are comfortable. 

Look for materials that are easy to clean.

Otherwise, the surfaces can stay sticky and it will be uncomfortable to use. Also, consider the cost required for maintenance. Many people don’t consider this. Think about the cost for maintaining the furniture for a month to see whether it is affordable for you. It is also important to choose the right style of furniture so that it complements the décor you already have in the restaurant. Look for colours and textures that you already have in the restaurant to maintain a flow throughout the indoor and outdoor spaces. You can also research the brand and supplier for the furniture to get an idea of the durability of the furniture. Other considerations are warranty, return policies and delivery options.
