A quick guide on outdoor restaurant tables
Making your own restaurant is a thought that almost everyone has had at least once in their life. Well if you actually have listened to your heart on making your café or restaurant or you’re already responsible for a running restaurant business, you will have a lot of things to consider and plan about. One of these things is buying the tables at which you will seat your customers. There a lot of aspects that you have to consider while making every decision that is going to have a long-term effect on your business, and buying tables are one of those decisions. Here’s a look at the things you need to consider when looking for your commercial outdoor furniture.
Tables are the centerpieces of every sitting arrangement. It’s true that the choice and selection of chairs and everything else related becomes really easy and straightforward once you have selected the tables because many tables come with their own chairs or you can easily decide a chair style that goes with the table and compliments the color scheme.
For your outdoor restaurant, there is a wide variety of table styles you should know of so you can select the one that suits your place the best. There are standard height tables that can accommodate 2 to 4 people; these are the most common type of restaurant dining table. A bar height table is also a very good choice for outdoor places; also known as the high-top table will usually be long enough to seat 6 people and is very good for brunches and parties. Outdoor family dining tables are another type of table that can seat 8 to 10 people, although you can make a makeshift long dining table by joining two or three regular tables, this table is bought when you want to provide a luxury dining experience. Round tables with an umbrella sprouting out the middle of the table are typical outdoor tables that are used around swimming pools. The shape of the table is up to you for deciding, as to what will serve your restaurant the best.
Tabletops are the next important aspect. If you are looking for outdoor tables, you will be looking for potentially weather-proof tops made of a surface that can be easily cleaned and does not heat up. Black matte surfaces heat up under the sun and you don’t want your customers to be complaining about their table being too hot that it melts their ice-cream. For sunny and warm places, white marble tops or any other light color will do. One insight on tabletops is that it should not be too reflective that it burns the customer’s eyes when sitting on the table under the sun. Glass, metal and shiny white surfaces reflect light that makes it uncomfortable to sit. The table bases are the next important thing; a base that is stable enough to keep the table unmoved under strong winds is preferable as there is no protection outdoors.
