Whether you’re running a cafe, a restaurant or a bistro, when the weather starts getting better, it’s high time you started thinking about taking your customers al fresco. The sun’s out – and it’ll hopefully be here for a little while longer – which means it’s time to start thinking about outdoor restaurant furniture and seating. Here’s our quick guide to some truly stunning summer venue ideas.
Vibrant Colours are Key
Notice how people start to dress in more vibrant colours as the weather gets better? As the weather gets brighter, so do colour schemes – and that applies to your venue, too. Avoid muted, softer colours and go for exciting, exotic choices – pinks, purples, yellows, the list goes on – it’s important to consider summery colours as wildly-decorated furniture can give off a seasonal feel even if the weather is drab and dreary. Vibrant colours are attractive, exciting and really add character to any space. Put it this way – choose between yellow chairs or grey chairs, out in the sun – it’s a no-brainer!
We all know how unpredictable the Great British Summer can be – so consider lightweight, stackable restaurant tables and chairs which can be easily moved in, out and around should the weather choose to take a turn for the worse. Opt for plastic or metal – or a mix of both – depending upon your venue’s aesthetics and style – and what your customers are likely to enjoy the most. These seating and table options can also be moved around to suit your diners, too – meaning that there’s greater flexibility for them when it comes to where they want to drink and eat.
While the summer months will largely mean that sunshine is bound for British shores – if only for a little while – it’s still important that you opt for durable, weatherproof furniture. If you’re building an outdoor dining or drinking space, you may need to leave your furniture out in all weathers – and while it’s recommended you protect them as much as possible, opting for a highly durable and weather-resistant option ensures that even more bases are covered wherever necessary.
