Canteen furniture buyers guide:

Canteen and bistro furniture are key in providing the right environment for employees in their break times. Here are our top tips on how to make the most of your canteen, regardless of size and budget. As a result of following these tips you are guaranteed design success:

1. Be creative

First of all, don’t restrict the colour scheme of canteen chairs to the classic blue or black. There are so many fun colour combinations to choose from. In addition, the Hinton and the Drayton in our Fast Food Units range to inject a burst of colour.

2. Don’t scrimp on seating

Secondly, providing ample seating will encourage staff to take breaks together and get to know each other better. Sharing stories and ideas can be highly positive for not only morale but also progression in work. Our new contemporary bench ranges are an ideal way to provide plenty of seating without compromising on space or style.

3. Think green

While natural light is best, it’s not always possible. If there is a lack of natural light in your canteen, be sure to add adequate artificial lighting. A great canteen isn’t just about the canteen furniture you choose. Plants, decorations and art are features that employees consider important according to surveys.
