Embracing Timber Table Tops – What Are Your Options?

is-sh-bro-812Timber tables tops are slowly making a welcoming return to café’s, bistros, and restaurants and their natural look using recycled or reclaimed materials, gives a funky hipster feel to any venue. The good news is that if you want to embrace the unique feel and smell that wood brings and are looking to update your cafe furniture, there are several options open to you.

Custom timber table tops

If you have a healthy budget and are looking for high end cafe furniture that will create that all important wow factor, then you might want to opt for custom made timber table tops. There are a multitude of companies that offer this service and it means that you can have a table made to your exacting requirements. Whether you need round, rectangular, or square tables you can get them in just about any timber you like. From trusty oak, to rich mahogany or walnut, custom table tops are an outstanding if not expensive choice.

Made to measure timber table tops

If you have a slightly more realistic budget then you can opt for ready-made wooden tables and table tops. You could say that purchasing this type of table top is like buying an off-the-peg suit as opposed to a bespoke made-to-measure variety. Tables are usually ordered in a standard, ready-made form which are manufactured especially for the hospitality industry. This means that they’re strengthened and treated in order to withstand the rigours of a busy establishment.

Resin or compact laminate

If you want the look and feel of wood but without the budget, then you might want to opt instead for compact laminate table tops. Aside from the great value-for-money price tag they’re extremely realistic and what’s more, they’re incredibly hard wearing. This means that unlike natural wood they can be used outside on pavements and terraces without fading, warping, or cracking. Tables of this nature are made by hard-pressing multiple thin layers of ply wood which is sandwiched between layers of hard setting resin. The result is an almost indestructible table that looks and feels natural.

Here at Cafe Furniture Melbourne we have an extensive range of compact laminate cafe table tops in stock, all of which are at seriously competitive prices. So if you want to achieve the look and feel of wood but without it breaking the bank, laminate furniture is the best way to go.
