When you’re looking for casual cafe furniture that is easily portable, then there’s nothing better than low stools. These handy items of furniture have many benefits, both permanent and temporary, and are likely to become your ‘go to’ choice for many impromptu needs. Not convinced? Well let’s dive in and take a closer look at how low bar stools could benefit you.
It goes without saying that low stools take up less space than a dining chair, so if your space is limited then low stools are a great choice for you. A small room will appear dominated by tables and chairs, giving a cluttered look. Instead, try replacing chairs with low stools and you’ll notice how much lighter and airier your space looks. Not just this, but because they tuck beneath the table when not in use, it’s easier for your customers and waiting staff to move between tables. Low stools have a subtle presence yet still manage to fill a variety of needs. They’re lightweight and versatile, and can be used anywhere in your cafe.
Low stools are relatively inexpensive and will fit into most budgets without you breaking the bank and the advantage they have over chairs, for example, is that they can be used both for seating and as small, additional tables, depending of course, on what they’re made from and how much weight they can handle. Our low replica Tolix stools, for example, are fashioned from steel, which makes them lightweight and easy to move around, but in addition they’re incredibly strong and can easily be used as a small table on which to place food or drinks when placed next to a tub chair or sofa.
Another key benefit of low stools is that they can be stacked when not in use, which is a huge benefit when space is tight. Because they take up such a small area, you could even stack them beneath your serving counter or in a corridor, and bring them out at your busiest times of the day.
Low stools come in so many colours, materials, and styles, that they’re a quick and easy way of adding character to your venue. We’re great fans of rustic stools with wooden seats and metal legs such as our Hairpin and Phil stools which are bursting with personality. They’re ideal for traditional spaces but also fit into an industrial theme with ease.
If your interior colour palette is neutral then customers may be a little put off with what could be perceived as a bland look. One way to solve this problem is to use some of our more colourful Tolix low stools to add a pop of colour and bring your dining space to life.
Small can be beautiful and it pays to choose your low stools with as much care as you would your larger items of furniture to get the most out of your investment, whatever your budget. Wear and tear on a stool is unlikely to be equal to that of a sofa, so you can feel comfortable investing in small stools which not only look gorgeous but are totally functional too. The chances are that these tiny space savers will age more gracefully than some of your larger pieces of furniture.
