Designing Dining Furniture
It is essential that your school dining furniture is in line with the look and feel of the room and building it is being used in.
We can design contemporary and traditional dining room furniture that meets the environment it is situated in. Whether it be the more traditional veneers or incorporating bright colours and styles of tables, our team can advise on the most appropriate pieces of furniture.
Understanding how the dining room space will influence the design of the furniture as the space may used for other activities or a permanent dining room.
Therefore, you may require easy to move and store seating and tables to ensure that you have simply and easily transform the space depending on what is required.
If you have a dedicated dining room, you may prefer fixed furniture and consider how best to maximise the space.
Staff and Student Dining Furniture
An important consideration is the intended user of the dining furniture to ensure that it is fit for purpose and creates a comfortable environment to eat and have a break.
Designing seating and tables for a young pupils is very different to providing dining room for furniture for sixth form students, we can tailor the furniture depending on who will be using the space and where it is situated on the school estate.
Frequently asked questions about school dining room furniture
Deciding between mobile and static furniture?
We are able to offer large ranges of both mobile and static dining room furniture to suit your requirements.
In reality most dining furniture is moveable with sufficient manpower but if you need to regularly move the furniture then it would be worth considering chairs that can stack high in each stack.
Also, we can supply tables that fold and have wheels so that the process of moving the tables and chairs is faster and easier. They also take up less space when not in use.
Design and layout – shapes of tables, rows or benches?
We offer a free no obligation survey and design consultation with all dining furniture enquiries.
We will visit your school to survey the space available and then draw your dining room in our design software to show you how different shapes and sizes of tables and layouts will work with the space available.
We also calculate the number of people you can accommodate with each layout option we produce so that you are able to decide which style of furniture and layout is best for your school.
