How Do I Choose the Right Canteen Table?

Choosing the right table involves considering several factors to ensure it fits your space, style, and functional needs. Here's a guide to help you make the best choice:

1. Understand Your Space:

  • Size Matters: Measure your space to determine the size of the table you can accommodate. Ensure there's enough room around the table for chairs and for people to move comfortably. We provide tables to sit 4, 6, 8, 10 or 12.
  • Layout: Consider the layout of your space. Round tables like our Inox Round Table work well in compact areas or corners, while square or rectangular tables are ideal for larger spaces and can be easily combined for group seating.

2. Consider the Material:

  • Durability: For high-traffic commercial environments, choose materials that can withstand constant use, like hardwood, metal, or reinforced glass.
  • Maintenance: Think about the cleaning and maintenance required. Some materials like our laminate Edge Canteen Table are more stain-resistant and easier to clean than others.

3. Style and Aesthetics:

  • Your canteen tables should complement the overall theme and decor of your current canteen furniture. Whether it's modern, industrial, rustic, or traditional, choose a style that aligns with the overall aesthetic.
  • Colour and finish also play a role. Neutral colours are versatile, while bold colours can make a statement. Our Disc Round Table is available in over 60 RAL colours, from neutral colours like white, to bold colours like pink and blue.

4. Outdoor and Indoor Use:

  • If you're selecting tables for an outdoor area like our Gargantua Picnic Table, ensure they are weather-resistant. Materials like wood, metal with a rust-proof finish, or weather-resistant synthetics are ideal.
  • For indoor tables, you have more flexibility with materials, but consider the lighting and interior climate when choosing.

Canteen Table FAQs

What is the most popular canteen table and why?

The most popular canteen table does depend on the budget you have to spend on your commercial dining areas. The types of materials are still of commercial quality but the design or the way the table is constructed may change to fit a budget.

Medium size budget - Edge canteen table.

Why is it popular?

  • Large range of sizes
  • 100 colourful edge choices
  • Multiple base styles
  • Rounded corners
  • Suitable for any canteen space
  • Well priced & hard wearing

High budget - Waldo canteen table.

Why is it popular?

  • Probably one of the hardest wearing canteen tables on the market
  • Expertly crafted in the UK
  • Solid wood edge
  • Thick 3 mm solid laminate top
  • 100's colours including two-tone effect
  • Made to any size
  • Will last for years

If you have the budget always choose the Waldo range because it looks great in most canteens and will keep going for years and years. The Edge canteen table is still very good quality and works great for most areas but just lacks the designer look and feel of the Waldo.

How durable are your canteen tables?

Our canteen tables are very durable for the following reasons:

  1. The canteen table tops are made from scratch and stain resistant laminate
  2. The edge is either made from solid wood or a high impact edge
  3. The frame or structure is made from commercial quality steel and wood
  4. All the furniture is manufactured with a 5-year warranty

Available in a huge range of colours, canteen bench seating and bench table styles, our hard-wearing, practical designs work with any decor. A large college dining room might choose a canteen table and chairs or matching benches in bright colours, but with subtle designer touches and shades to keep a grown-up feel.

Should I choose round or long canteen tables?

It does depend on the size of your company canteen.

  • Larger space - round canteen table
    If you have a larger space and do not want to cram in too many tables then round canteen tables are more sociable and don't need rearranging as much as long rectangular tables. You can seat four, six and even eight around the very largest table.
  • Medium space - round + long canteen table
    If you just need to refurbish your staff eating area and don't need to add more seating use a combination of the two tables creating different eating areas. Also, consider adding some fabric or vinyl booth seating for a more comfortable and relaxed feel.
  • Smaller space - long canteen tables
    For smaller spaces where you need to fit in as many people as possible the only option is long canteen tables with benches. This type of canteen furniture is the most economical way to seat as many people as possible.

Cafe and canteen owners know that a choice of round or long canteen tables and benches can create new ways to fit extra diners into existing spaces, allowing them the opportunity to cater for large groups much more easily.

Again the sheer range of dining table designs and styles allows us to offer a canteen table and bench set that will suit any commercial interior - and even exterior. Ask us for advice on space planning for your canteen benches.

Does Spaceist sell commercial canteen furniture?

Yes, we have a wide selection of commercial canteen furniture, allowing you to make use of spaces to create new eating areas as well as extra spaces for staff relaxation, breakout and leisure activities. Like our cafe furniture, canteen tables and chairs are very stylish, extremely robust and extra durable.

Why do I need commercial canteen tables?

Unlike furniture purchased on the high street, commercial furniture like canteen tables, long bench tables and dining tables may be used all day long by everyone in the workplace, and often as meeting and breakout spaces as well as for dining.

  1. Commercial canteen benches are also likely to be treated more harshly as people feel less personal responsibility towards taking care of them.
  2. Commercial dining tables are extra robust and well designed enough to shrug off food and drink stains as well as work for the widest variety of users.
  3. For environmental reasons you should always by the best you can afford. The more you spend the higher the quality of design, manufacture and materials.

Are the canteen tables wipeable?

Yes, even if you choose a white canteen table and chairs the materials are easy to wipe clean and have antibacterial and stain resistant table tops. They’re durable, functional and designed to appeal to everyone siting at a bench table.

Cleaning instructions:

  1. Wipe down with a soft cloth and a mild cleaning liquid like vinegar or window cleaner
  2. Wipe off any standing liquid with a dry cloth
  3. We recommend you clean on a regular bases to stop a buildup of grease and dust
