How Often Should I Replace My Restaurant Furniture?

Commercial-grade restaurant furniture is designed to withstand consistent heavy use in areas for years to come. While it needs to be inviting and comfortable, it also must hold up to multiple cleanings.

You should replace restaurant furniture every 5-10 years. However, many variables play a role in replacing restaurant furniture, including the materials used to manufacture your restaurant seating and tables, whether the furniture is indoor or outdoor, how heavily it’s used, and the quality of its care.

Even when restaurant furniture appears to be in excellent condition, it may need to be replaced just to revitalize your venue.

Great Design Solutions for Booth Seating in Restaurants

Booth seating in restaurants creates a sense of intimacy among groups of families or friends who gather to dine. This sense of togetherness can encourage your restaurant patrons to linger, not only enjoying each other’s company for longer but also consuming more.

Additionally, booth seating helps the consumer feel isolated from the hustle and bustle of a restaurant environment, avoiding what might be a stressful experience for some. Booths protect patrons from much of the noise as well.

Lastly, corner seating with booths makes use of otherwise cumbersome space and makes it suitable for customers to enjoy. Read further for corner seating tips and options.

How To Protect Bistro Chairs

You found the perfect commercial outdoor Bistro sets, not only adding to serving capacity but successfully adding a fun, European flair to your venue’s appearance. Now you want to know how to protect your Bistro chairs so they last as long as possible.

First, we hope you’ve chosen contract-grade furniture for your venue, manufactured to last in high-traffic areas and made to be cleaned frequently. If your Bistro chairs and tables are used outdoors, we recommend their frames be lightly sanded and varnished yearly with a commercial lacquer. During inclement weather, Bistro sets should be stacked and stored in a covered area to ensure their extended use.

To clean Bistro chairs, we suggest you use only water with a mild soap. Wooden materials, such as natural rattan or Malacca, should be wiped using a damp microfiber cloth and then dried quickly after cleaning. You could also use furniture polish on wooden Bistro chairs and “nourish” the Malacca with linseed oil on occasion.

Never use an abrasive sponge or cloth on your Bistro chairs for cleaning purposes. Browse Beaufurn’s Bistro® furniture online, built with cast-iron bases and strong woven materials to last a long time.

Beaufurn Outdoor French Bistro® Chairs feature weave materials suitable for outdoor use, are resistant to fungus and mold, and are UV resistant so they won’t fade in sunlight. We recommend pairing our French Bistro® Chairs with our widely popular thermoset resin table tops. Browse our Urban Table Tops Collection online.

Read on to take a closer look at how to best choose the commercial umbrella for your outdoor seating area, whether designing for dining, poolside relaxation, or creating spaces for people to congregate while protected from the elements.

What is High Top Seating? And What Makes it Different?
