What To Look for In A Cafe Table

One of the most important items of furniture for any cafe is the tables. After all, they’re pretty much a necessity, and since they take up much of your space, they’re often the first thing that customers notice. But if you’re seeking new cafe tables, then what should you be looking for? We’ve put together a check list to follow which will help you make up your mind.

  • Durability – Naturally if you’re splashing the cash on new cafe tables then you want ones that are going to last, since you don’t want to be changing them six months down the line. It may be stating the obvious, but it’s important that you choose cafe tables which are designed for commercial use. Yes, we know you can find cheaper ones for home use, but trust us, they’re not designed for frequent use on a daily basis.

  • Indoor/outdoor use – When choosing your new cafe tables it kind of makes sense to choose ones that can be used indoors and outside, that way all your bases are covered, and if a large party suddenly arrives that wants to sit outside, for example, and all the tables are full, you can always utilise any spare tables from inside.

  • Easy maintenance – when a cafe is busy then waiting staff need to be on the ball and quickly clearing and wiping tables for the next set of customers. Try and choose a table top that can be easily wiped down using something as simple as household cleanser and a damp cloth. In addition, a table top that is stain resistant and heatproof will also make life much easier for you.

  • Flexibility – Wouldn’t it be great if you could find the same design of table in an assortment of sizes, so that you could keep consistent styling throughout your venue but switch up table heights for different seating areas. Well the good news is that many of the top manufacturers in the hospitaliy industry do offer a choice of shapes and sizes in all of their table top designs, so keep an eye out for these.

  • Weather resistant – The chances are that if you have an outdoor terrace or pavement dining area you want to be able to leave your tables outside for the best part of the year, to make the most of passing trade. For this to be possible, it’s important to choose table tops that are weather resistant and UV stabilised. This means that despite the harsh Austraian climate, they won’t crack, splinter, or rot nor will they fade and lose their colour.
