The Advantages Of Buying Cafe Furniture Online

online shoppingWhether your cafe is undergoing a refurb or you’re opening a brand new venue, getting the right cafe furniture at the right price is key. You might think that the only way to purchase cafe furniture is to visit a bricks and mortar warehouse, inspect the furniture and try it out, then place an order. While this has its advantages, it can also be costly. The other alternative of course is to consider buying cafe furniture online. Let’s take a closer look at some of the advantages.

Virtual stores open for business 24/7

Virtual stores are open for business all day, every day, therefore it means that a customer can log on and browse at whatever time of the day or night they feel like. Ultimately this means that as a potential customer you don’t have to take time out of your busy working day to search for furniture. Instead whether its 6am or 11pm you can browse and buy at your leisure.

Reputable companies won’t let you down

One of the main risks with buying cafe furniture online is that you’ll either end up with something you don’t like, wait far too long for it to arrive, or worse still it never arrives at all. Most of these issues can be ironed out by using a reputable company. How do you know they’re reputable? Easy… Check reviews and feedback online and do some background digging. If something seems a little fishy then avoid dealing with the company. Conversely, if everything appears to check out, and you have a positive gut feeling, then you should have no hesitation in dealing with them. Here at Cafe Furniture Brisbane for example we’ve been in the industry for many years and work extremely hard to satisfy the needs of every customer. We welcome any questions you have and our experienced team are on hand to help you make sure you get the right cafe furniture for your needs.

It’s often cheaper

It stands to reason that bricks and mortar stores have greater overheads than virtual stores. For example they’ll probably have staff wages and they’ll definitely have utilities to pay like building rental, heating, and electricity. More often than not, this is reflected in the price of the furniture you buy. On the contrary a virtual store can operate on a minimal budget and as a result can often afford to offer cheaper prices to their customers.

It’s more convenient

Virtual shopping provides the ultimate in convenience. Simply open your laptop or switch on your PC, log in and start browsing. There’s no fighting your way through traffic, finding somewhere to park, waiting to be served, and fighting your way home again. Instead buying cafe furniture online is quick, convenient, and altogether, stress free.

At Cafe Furniture Brisbane we give you the best of both worlds. Yes we operate a virtual online store where you can browse and buy from a wide range of commercial grade cafe furniture, but we also have our local warehouse in Brendale where you see most of the furniture first hand as well as trying before you buy. Why not contact our friendly team today on 07 3205 1616 to see just how we can help you to purchase the right cafe furniture at the right price.

Tips On Choosing Cafe Bar Stools

Jax stoolBar stools are a great item of furniture to have in your cafe because they are extremely versatile. Not only do they help to maximise your floor space by slotting into areas where it’s difficult to fit a chair but they also add variety to your seating choices, which is something that your customers will appreciate.

Nowadays cafes are used as makeshift offices, a place to meeting friends, a casual place in which to hold a business meeting, and more besides. It makes sense therefore that a cafe needs to offer a variety of seating to suit individual needs.

Bar stools are perfect for informal gatherings and for lone diners to sit without taking up the space of a table intended for 4. Because they come in a variety of heights and styles, there’s a stool for every occasion and every location. So how do you know which stools to choose for your cafe? Let’s take a look:

Getting the size right

Stools typically come in three main sizes, small, medium, and tall. The small stools stand at around 45 cms in height and are perfect for pairing with a standard cafe table. Medium stools stand at around 65-70cm and are suitable for use with a counter. Tall stools measure in at around 75-80 cms from the seat to the ground and are for use with lofty bar tables.

What style should you choose?

Once you’ve worked out the height you need then it’s time to think about the style. Really this is a matter of personal preference but you could start by deciding whether you want your stool to have a back or not and whether or not you would like it to swivel. Once this is decided you need to choose between modern or traditional. This is likely to be determined by the style of your cafe.

What should it be made from?

Stools come in a wide range of materials including wood, steel, chrome, and rattan. Wood is a good choice but it may require some maintenance such as staining once a year, particularly if they’re used outside. Steel is another good option since it’s a lightweight material which is easy to move around, and yet it’s very durable. If the steel is powder coated then you’ll find that you’ve got a rainbow of colours and finishes to choose from, so you can easily match them to your décor.

Fabric

If your stool is upholstered then make sure that the fabric is washable or that it can be easily wiped free of stains. Vinyl is a useful covering for stool seats as it can be quickly wiped down, making it low in maintenance.

Once you’ve worked your way through the various options to narrow down your search then it should be far easier to find the perfect bar stools for your cafe. Here at Cafe Furniture Brisbane we’ve got plenty of stools for you to choose from, including our latest addition, the Jax stool. This simplistic stool has clean cut lines and a strong boxy shape. With an integrated foot rest and a well padded seat, it makes for a comfortable seating experience, that easy on the eye and low maintenance too.

Get The Name Of Your Business Out There With Our Drum Bar Stools

ottoman-blackCafes tend to be informal places where friends can meet up for a chat over a steaming cup of coffee and a tasty slice of cake. What better way to create an informal atmosphere than by offering your customers a variety of seating. Stools in particular are great at creating a casual dining space and what’s more because they fit into small corners with ease, they’re a good way of maximising your floor space too.

Funky and fun

Our drum bar stools are a little different from the bar stools you might already have in your cafe or bar since, as the name suggests, they’re shaped to look like a drum. Strong and sturdy, and made from powder coated steel these stools will fit effortlessly into an industrial theme or a rustic style of cafe.

Steel is a great choice of material for cafe seating because it’s lightweight and easy to move around from one place to another, whilst being incredibly strong too. The powder coating helps to protect these stools from marks and scratches and also means you could use them outdoors, although we recommend that you bring them in at the end of the day.

Imaginative way to advertise

Great to look at with a striped design and a soft, vinyl cushion, incorporated into the stool, these eye-catching stools are as pleasing on the eye as they are useful. One of the advantages of this type of stool is that you can use the plain white section of the base to have your company’s name stencilled, making it a fun way to get your name out there. Imagine some of these stools placed outside your cafe or bar. They’re sure to catch the attention of passers-by who are likely to remember the name of your cafe too, and be able to recommend it to friends. Imagine also, if you were hosting an event and these stools were on show with your company’s name emblazoned all over them, the guests are sure to remember the name, especially if the event was a huge success.

These stools would also be a great way of promoting your cafe on Facebook or Instagram as you could upload a picture of your stools with the name of your cafe clearly displayed. You could then attract more interest with a special dish of the week or offer price for a coffee and a slice of cake, when purchased together for example.

Strong and practical, these drum bar stools can be used in all sorts of ways to get your brand noticed. So why not order yours today. If you’d like more information on these or any of our other products then please feel free to call us on 07 3205 1616 or, if you happen to be in Brendale, then pop into our warehouse and see our furniture for yourself.

Why Opt For Isotop Tables?

Whether you’re looking to change your existing cafè tables to fit in with a new theme or design or whether you are opening a new venue and are looking for cafè furniture that’s going to last, you might want to strongly consider Isotop tables. You can purchase them in tabletop form if you’re looking to mix and match tops and bases, or alternatively you can purchase complete tables. Whichever form you choose, they remain the perfect option for any cafè, bar or restaurant and here’s why?

Durability

Most cafè tables are advertised as being strong and durable, but when you buy Isotop tables they really are. Firstly they’re stain resistant. In other words they’re impermeable against virtually any type of sticky or corrosive substance, from solids through to liquids. Isotop tables are also heat resistant which means they have no adverse effect from hot foods, plates, or even pans and what’s more they’re resistant to cigarette burns too. In one test a lit cigarette was left on an Isotop table and it burned out without marking the table at all. How’s that for durability? Finally Isotop tables are proven to be weather proof so they don’t fade, crack, warp, or rust when confronted by sun and rain.

Low maintenance

Because Isotop tables are treated they don’t need any special cleaning materials or treatments to keep them looking as good as new. Instead all that’s needed to keep them in top condition is a damp cloth and some soapy water. This will easily remove any stains or sticky substances quickly and efficiently.

Stability

Isotop tables are manufactured to maintain the perfect stability. Firstly they’re not too heavy so that they can be moved around as and when the needs of your business dictates. However, conversely, they’re not too light so that they can easily be blown over by a gust of wind when placed outdoors. In fact you could say that Isotop tables have the perfect balance between lightness and heaviness.

Creative finishes

If you want variety then you’ve got it with Isotop tables. They come in a huge variety of styles, designs, and finishes, from marble effect and timber look to granite style, smooth satin, and a comprehensive range of colours. Isotop tables also have a multitude of sizes from 1200mm oblong tables sufficient to seat 8-10 people through to intimate 600mm round tables perfect for two. All tables come with rounded corners and perfectly contoured edges which, while being incredibly tactile, are also there to prevent any safety issues.
