How To Add Colour To Your Cafe The Right Way

USING COLOUR IN YOUR CAFEIf you feel that your café interior is in need of a splash of colour but aren’t sure where to start, you may want to follow a few basic rules to help you get the balance right. Follow these rules and you’ll have a well-balanced colourful space. However get it wrong and you’re more likely to end up with a mismatch of colour that just doesn’t work. Let’s take a closer look!

It’s all about percentages

It’s okay, you don’t have to be a whiz at maths to understand basic colour percentages. Instead what you need to know is that too much of one colour can either make a room look bland and uninteresting or busy and confused. As a general rule of thumb divide your café into three colour components. These being main, secondary and accent colour with a 60%, 30% and 10% split, For example you might decide that the bulk of the colour (60%) goes on the walls. A further 30% might be used for furniture colour or floor colour and the final 10% being utilised for accent colour such as table cloths, napkins, cushions, curtains etc. Doing this should give you the perfect balance of colour so it’s all in the planning.

Getting your colour scheme right

If you have a natural flair for colour then trust your instincts and go with it. If colour isn’t your strongest point then you can play it safe by using natural colour contrasts which are known to work well together such as blue and yellow, purple and orange or red and green. Alternatively go for groups of colour such as warm colours, cool colours, natural colours or soft tones. Finally if all else fails then use a good colour chart to help you decide.

Scaling up or down

Another way to add colour is to either scale it up or down. For example you might want to consider going dark to light with your darkest colour being the floor, a toned down colour on the walls and the lightest colour on the ceilings. This ‘vertical’ style of decorating not only adds depth to a room but is one that blends in effortlessly.

Start with your furniture

If you have some particularly bold pieces of café furniture then why not design a colour scheme that best compliments them. For example, if you have sumptuous chocolate brown leather-look chairs, then why not continue that colour scheme on the walls with shades of spice and accent colours of sage green and burnt orange. Alternatively if you have some furniture in light pastel blue, then cornflower blues and off-whites will give a softer French chic look to your establishment

If you need inspiration for your colour scheme, or if you need matching furniture for an already crafted scheme then log in and head over to Cafe Furniture Melbourne. We have a wide range of café furniture on offer at real value for money prices. Trust us when we say you won’t be disappointed.

Embrace The Industrial Theme With Our Low Back Replica Tolix Bar Stools

If you like to follow the latest trends then you’ll be aware that the industrial theme which was so popular in 2014 will still be very much in evidence in 2015. You may also have read that the majority of consumers would prefer to eat tasty food in a more casual and relaxed atmosphere. Bar stools have become totally ubiquitous and not without good reason. Perched in front of a counter or bar table they offer a casual, yet chic way of sipping coffee or eating a tasty snack.

New kid on the block
The Tolix name is probably best known for its iconic chairs which are as fashionable and functional today as they were back in the 1930’s when they were created in France by Xavier Pauchard. This latest style of Tolix stool offers a low back rest which if a customer is perched on it for some time gives support to their back and prevents them from slumping. We also sell a cushion which offers an even more comfortable seating experience.

Made from steel and powder coated, our replica Tolix bar stools are currently available in black or white or a galvanised finish and feature a built in foot rest for added comfort. The stools are light in weight and can be easily moved around to suit customer needs. Positioned in front of a sleek black counter or grouped around a high bar table they look fantastic with a backdrop of exposed brickwork and a décor consisting of pale charcoal or white walls and metallic pendant lighting.

Stylish way of eating bar food
As mentioned earlier, the trend for 2015 is sharing food which is typically served on large platters. People also enjoy eating tapas sized portions which could be eaten at a bar counter and what more stylish way of sitting enjoying a coffee with a tapas, than on these great looking Tolix bar stools.

Adds visual interest
Our Tolix bar stools are also a good way of adding visual height and interest. A few of these stools placed in corners around bar tables or along a stretch of wall behind a counter will break up a monotonous seating area filled with tables grouped with 2 or 4 chairs.

Good investment for money
Savvy bistro and café owners are coming to realise that industrial style furniture makes for a good investment and can save them money in the long run. Metal is extremely durable and requires little maintenance and the great thing about our Tolix stools is that they mature with age and look even better. The odd scratch or dent just adds to their character and cared for properly they should last for years.

Here at Cafe Furniture Melbourne we have a wide range of café stools to choose from so why not visit our warehouse if you happen to be in the Preston area of Melbourne or shop on line. You can also call us on 03 9357 9688 if you need any further information about any of our products.

Looking To Invest In Some New Café Tables?

Isotop Butcher's Block tableA happy New Year to all our customers. If one of your resolutions is to revamp your café or bar with some new café furniture then you might be interested in one of our latest products, the Isotop Butcher’s Block Table.

Isotop is a brand which is taking the hospitality industry by storm and when you take a close look at this fantastic brand it isn’t surprising. Manufactured in Malaysia to keep costs down you might think that these tables would be flimsy and poorly constructed, but you’d be very much mistaken. Isotop use a patented German technology which combines a mixture of real woods with synthetic resins and hard presses them at a high temperature to create a table top which is immensely strong and durable. In fact, being heat, scratch, and stain resistant you could say these table tops are virtually indestructible!

All weather tables

The Butcher’s Block finish looks totally authentic as if it has been made from a beautiful piece of natural wood. Made without any seams, it is hygienic and easy to clean which is just what any café or bistro owner requires in a café table. 35mm in depth with smooth rounded corners and a distinct woody grain effect, this table oozes with style and yet it is resistant to abuse such as cigarette burns, stains and heat which makes it a popular choice for cafés and bistros.

Made from a unique compound which is weather proof, these stylish Isotop tables can be used indoors or outside which makes them a great all rounder. No matter what the harsh Australian climate throws at them, they won’t fade, split, crack or rot. Cleaning is also easy since they need little more than a wipe with a damp cloth and detergent to remove any spillages or food debris.

Variety of sizes

Our Isotop Butcher’s Block tables are supplied in three handy sizes: 800, 700 and 600mm so there is a table size to suit all needs. Each table comes with a choice of matt black or shiny silver aluminium base and depending on your choice, the table can look modern or quite traditional. The stand has a central pole with a four star base. Weighted feet with an adjustable feature to them adds additional stability to the table and prevents it from toppling over on uneven ground or in a heavy gust of wind. Like the table top, the base is also totally weatherproof.

Why not take a look at our competitively priced Isotop tables. At prices such as these you can revamp your café, bistro or bar without breaking the bank.
