In years gone by café’s and comfort didn’t really go hand in hand. In fact in many establishments the preferred seating of choice was something usually something along the lines of a 30 minute chair. This was so called because it looked great but you’d only want to be sitting in it for 30 minutes. After this time you wouldn’t be able to feel your backside. This was great for busy café’s who were looking to turn tables as quickly as possible.
Nowadays however comfort is really important to cafe goers. They want to be able to drink their skinny latte while checking their emails and sitting in a relaxing chair. If your seating is uncomfortable, then it doesn’t mater how good the coffee or service is, customers won’t be returning. That unfortunately is the cold hard truth.
Now for the good news..
Manufacturers realise this and now produce a wide range of comfortable commercial-grade cafe chairs. This means that yes, they’re practical, yes they’re built to last, but most importantly, they’re great to sit on. The issue is that you’ve got to find them.
Try before you buy
It’s unlikely that you’d buy a new mattress or bed without testing it out first. The same goes for your cafe furniture. After all it’s going to be one of your biggest purchases so it needs to be right. With this in mind, it’s worth spending some time going to showrooms and trying them out. Physically sit on them and see how they feel. If they check out okay for you, then chances are your customers will agree too. You don’t have to buy from the showroom if you don’t want to as you might find the same chairs cheaper online, but most definitely try before you buy.
Mix it up a little
You know the saying ‘You can’t please all of the people, all of the time‘ Well when it comes to cafe seating comfort, then maybe you can! How about ‘hedging your bets’ and mixing your cafe furniture up. It doesn’t all have to be neat rows of tables and chairs. On the contrary to provide a bit of interest, why not intersperse tables and chairs with sofas, tub chairs, and even booth seating. This way you stand a better chance of providing the right kind of seating for everyone.
