Looking for new hospitality furniture, whether it be bar furniture or restaurant chairs and tables, can be a daunting task. So let Nufurn help you with the process.

Having transformed literally thousands of venues over the past 18 years with amazing restaurant chairs, banquet chairs and hotel furniture, we thought it'd be helpful to answer some frequently asked questions and raise some points for consideration if you're thinking of making over your venue.

The top 5 things to consider before you buy are:

1. Know your budget

Time is precious so preparing your budget beforehand will mean you’re only shopping around for what's “in-scope”. Working with our furniture specialists who know your expectations both aesthetically and financially help you to eliminate any dead ends before you even begin.

2. Know your deadline

Off the shelf items are available immediately, however for custom made goods, allow for a lead time of 8-12 weeks. It can take up to 3 months from your initial decision to delivery. There are often several rounds of approvals regarding both design and pricing between you and the supplier or manufacturer.

3. Know your aims

Consider first a simple update of loose furniture rather than a full construction overhaul. Take inventory of the furniture around you. This could be the cause of why your premises might be looking a little rundown. A refurbishment of furniture may be all that's needed to bring your club, restaurant or hotel back to life.

4. Know your customers

In this competitive world, it’s all about winning and retaining customers. Spend the time  ensuring that the furniture you invest in is right for your venues ambience and the environment you wish to create. It must also be right for your customers and also safe for your business from an operational perspective.

5. Know quality

Be prepared to spend a little more to get a lot more. It doesn't pay to skimp. Paying that little  bit extra for better quality and better looking furniture, is a worthy investment for you and your clientele
