From sophisticated to quirky and casual; bars and lounges can be customised with a variety of furnishings to create a variety of atmospheres. Depending on the style you’re aiming for, a range of seating and furniture options should be considered.
For instance, consider the seat height of furniture – lounge chairs with low seat heights can be paired with upholstered low stools to save on costs but increase on covers.
Bar stools and high 2 or 3 seater benches can be grouped for communal drinking and dining areas, and can be paired with fixed banquette seating customised in seat height to match the seating opposite.
Quick Tips :
- Consider levels. Adding high seated areas as well as normal dining height areas create depth and a more dynamic space.
- Seat vs table. On average you should consider approx. 30cm of space between your seat height and table top for a comfortable sit.
- Stain proof fabrics. As any barman would tell you, spills are inevitable. Opt for stain proof fabrics to keep your bar or lounge looking great and avoid porous table tops such as white Carrara marble which run the risk of permeant stains.
- What goes around comes back around. Choosing to have return springs in revolving barstools allows them to spring back to their set position for convenience.
- Durability. The furniture must be robust and practical to withstand the wear and tear of a busy day or night- Lucky for you all Inside Out Contracts furniture is guaranteed for contract use.
