Summer 2018 was one to remember - it never seemed to end! England reached the semi-finals in the FIFA World Cup and people were outside in their thousands soaking up the sun. But was there anything you missed? Having outdoor tables and outdoor seating is a must if you are going to take full advantage of the sunshine and the footfall that comes with it. However, knowing which furniture you should get can  be a difficult decision. We give you the breakdown on the ideal garden furniture for your commercial premises.

Outdoor Restaurant Furniture

Probably more so than any other business, restaurant furniture needs to be sturdy and easy to clean, but it also needs to be comfortable and spacious so users are having exactly the same experience as they would inside. It’s also worth considering that you need to have the option of a sun parasol so that your customers aren’t being blinded by the sun whilst they enjoy their meal.

Our top recommendations would be our Hampton Outdoor Dining Table range; which comes in a range of sizes and allows for easy manoeuvreability and cleaning, as well as providing plenty of space for food and drinks. The Eco Friendly Chair range perfectly compliments this table, as does the range of Outdoor Folding Chairs. The chairs have slatted seats and a galvanised metal frame to prevent rust, they also fold away so that they can be stored neatly when not in use

Outdoor Cafe Furniture

Cafe furniture for the outdoors needs to be lightweight, easy to store and quick to clean. While it needs to be comfy, as a coffee shop you are unlikely to have customers sitting down for too long, so comfort is less important than it would be in a restaurant. Our recommendation would be to invest in outdoor foldable tables. Available in a range of shapes and easy to manoeuvre, these tables can be used at any time of the year, and wouldn’t look out of place inside a cafe either.

For seating, our new eco friendly stackable chair range would compliment any table. Available in a range of vibrant colours, these chairs are made from 100% sustainable materials with a plastic seat and back made from 100% recycled plastic and recycled steel frame, 77% of which comes from the UK.

Outdoor Bar Furniture

When it comes to outdoor bar furniture you could use any of the above. However, we have our top picks which we believe would make any bar or pub look fantastic.

We all know how annoying it can be when people move half of the beer garden furniture from where you intend it to stay! With our Sheffield Steel Bar Stool range you can rest assured that the majority of customers will have to think twice about moving these beautiful stools. The entire steel base and frame make it a difficult piece of furniture to move, perfect if you want to keep your beer garden looking neat and clean.

However, we also know that moving furniture around an outside bar area is going to happen. Our Steel Chairs with Slatted Seats are easy to move and are stackable for accessible storage at the end of a busy day. Partnered with any one of our outdoor bar tables, these chairs will be perfect for any bar or pub.

Here at Peppermill Interiors, we pride ourselves on the quality of all our furniture and goods. If you are interested in us furnishing the outdoor area of your restaurant, cafe or bar, and maybe even the inside as well, contact our team and see how we can help.
