When one thinks of outdoor decorations for their cafe or restaurant, usually plants, statues, and fancy flourishes come to mind. But before you shell out major bucks for an expensive set of potted plants or a tacky sculpture, consider investing in a more practical route; outdoor seating.
The opportunity to sit and enjoy a meal outside on a warm spring day is more appealing to a passerby than any piece of "fine art" could hope to be. When people want to admire art, they go to a museum, when they want conversation and good eats, they dine out.
Even a few tables can turn a bare sidewalk space into a welcoming, classy environment. For half the cost you can re-energize your cafe and take advantage of the elegant and diverse furniture styles that are available on the market today. You do not have to limit your restaurant with chintzy window dressing that reduces from the charming essence of your eatery.
There is nothing simpler than an outdoor eating area- the lighting and air-conditioning is free, and even one customer sitting outside eating your food acts as a welcome advertisement to the passersby.
The advances in manufacturing materials have made it possible to have beauty and strength in your furniture. Tables and chairs with the sturdiness of steel and the beauty of wrought-iron are available now at economically sensible prices.
COST OF A SINGLE ANTIQUE IRON URN- $750.00
AVERAGE COST OF A TABLE TOP, BASE, and TWO CHAIRS FROM OUTDOOR RESTAURANT SEATING- 270.00
To put it simply-Everybody eats, and everybody likes to eat in pleasant, open atmospheres. Creating that atmosphere doesn't have to be a struggle.
People can be turned-off by tasteless trimming that pigeonholes your restaurant into a genre or stereotype. But no one is averse to the prospect of enjoying a meal outdoors on a sunny afternoon.
Do not lower the tasteful atmosphere that you worked so hard to achieve with a cheap awning. Choose an adornment that serves a purpose - Outdoor Restaurant Seating.
