Canteen Furniture

Investing in the right canteen furniture is important. Lunchtime is a vital part of the day, offering your staff a chance to eat, relax, and engage with colleagues in a comfortable setting.

Canteens are often busy environments, which is why it's essential to select furniture that is both durable and practical. Our furniture is crafted with these needs in mind.

We offer stackable solutions such as our Book stackable chairs and our Edge canteen tables, which feature a wipeable and stain-resistant Formica laminate, ensuring both longevity and ease of maintenance.

Our range of canteen furniture is designed to cater to the unique dynamics of communal spaces whether it’s a school, an office breakout area or other commercial spaces.

How Do I Choose The Right Size Canteen Furniture?

When planning the office layout and furniture for a canteen, it's important to consider the number of people it needs to accommodate and the desired level of comfort.

Here's a more detailed breakdown:

For Larger Groups (60-100 People)

In this scenario, opting for a canteen table and bench system like our Disc canteen table is both ergonomic and practical. These setups are easier to maintain, clean, and keep tidy, making them ideal for handling the high traffic of larger groups.

The bench system allows for efficient use of office space and quick accommodation of a significant number of people, which is essential in a bustling canteen environment.

For Medium-Sized Groups (30-60 People)

If comfort is a higher priority and the group size is moderately large, long tables with canteen chairs are a better fit. These tables can comfortably seat up to 12 people, providing ample space for diners.

The use of individual chairs rather than benches offers more personal space and comfort, making it a suitable choice for settings where people might spend more time sitting and enjoying their meals.

This setup also allows for more flexibility in rearranging the office seating if needed.

For Smaller Groups (20-30 People)

In smaller canteens, where the atmosphere is more intimate, smaller round tables seating 4-5 people are an excellent choice. Round canteen tables like our Inox table foster a more sociable environment, encouraging interaction and conversation.

They are particularly well-suited as school dining furniture as they can be easily placed without taking up too much space, and their shape naturally creates a more communal and engaging dining experience.

What Should I Consider When Purchasing Canteen Furniture?

What Should I Consider When Purchasing Canteen Furniture?

When purchasing office canteen furniture, there are several key factors to consider to ensure you make the right choice for your space and users:

  • Space and Layout: Assess the size and shape of your canteen area. Consider how much space you have and how best to utilise it. The layout should allow for easy movement and comfortable seating without feeling cramped.
  • Durability and Quality: Office canteen furniture often sees heavy use, so it's important to choose items that are durable and built to last. Look for high-quality materials and sturdy construction.
  • Ease of Cleaning and Maintenance: Given the nature of a dining area, spills and stains are inevitable. Choose furniture that is easy to clean and maintain. Surfaces should be wipeable and resistant to stains.
  • Comfort: Comfortable seating is crucial, especially if people will be sitting for extended periods. Our Soft-Bench is ergonomically designed with padded seating for extra comfort.
  • Functionality: Think about the specific needs of your office canteen. Do you need stackable chairs for easy storage? Do you require large tables for group seating like our JB-Waldo, or would smaller tables be more suitable?
