A new year is looming, and you have a new lease of life on the energy front, eh? You’ve looked around at your hospitality furniture and you’ve realised it’s time for an upgrade. It’s worth getting things sorted ASAP so you can hit the ground running in 2018. So what do you need to consider first?
Factors to consider when choosing new hospitality furniture…
Am I revamping our style?
Are you actually considering a bit of a ‘rebrand’ or simply an upgrade to what you have? It’s really worth asking yourself this question because the style of hospitality furniture you choose has to achieve many things.
For starters, it needs to reflect the personality of your business. Are you country chintz or more modern minimalist? The answer will depend on the market you’re trying to appeal to. Which takes us onto our next point. Your hospitality furnituredefinitely has to suit the taste of your intended customer base. Ye Olde Worlde wood effect may not work if your visitors are under twenty! And at the end of the day, the key thing your hospitality furniture needs to do is encourage your clientele to do what you actually want them to do. If you want them to eat and drink, your tables and chairs need to encourage exactly that.
How durable and robust does it need to be?
Obviously, you need your hospitality furniture to last. However, if it needs to be particularly hard-wearing because it’s going to be clambered over, day in day out, by five year olds then you have to be realistic. Sleek chrome may not cut it. So do you need hard-wearing fabrics that will stay looking good regardless of how many times they’re cleaned? Can your furniture dimensions cater properly for the shapes and sizes of those who are going to use it? Does it need to be heavy so as not to tip over when knocked? How easy does it need to be to clean? What industry standards and regulations do you need to meet?
All these, and probably many other, questions need answering before you choose your upgraded hospitality look.
What sort of comfort am I looking to offer?
If your customers are only popping in for a quick cuppa and a cake, you won’t want them staying too long otherwise you won’t make any money. However, if a quick coffee often then turns into lunch that might be a different story. Whatever the answers are, you’ll need to consider back support, softness within the upholstery, adjustability, and leg room.
How can CamHam help with choosing your hospitality furniture?

That means we’ve worked on a variety of projects and we understand what a venue needs to pitch things just right.
Every project we run starts with an in-depth consultation. This will investigate what functionality, design, and budget you’re looking for. We then produce a 2D and 3D plan for the project. And our aim is always to minimise any downtime to your business.
