Planning a large event or gathering can be stressful and extremely time-consuming. There will be so much to remember that certain tasks may end up being left to the last minute – but sorting out the right banqueting chairs should not be one of them. Chairs may not seem very important compared to guest lists or menus, but the seating you choosing can make a real difference to the success of an event.
Chairs come in many shapes and sizes and are incredibly versatile, so it is not finding chairs that will be tricky, rather it is finding the right ones to suit your event and budget, and this is why it is best to start your search early.
First you need to think about the budget you have available as well as the kind of quality you desire. Generally, metal and plastic chairs are cheaper options than wooden ones, but good quality and sturdy chairs are available in all three materials, so it largely a matter of personal taste as well as price.
An increasing popular option for event chairs is the stackable kind, the space saving properties of which offer advantages to both you and the hire company. The company is often able to offer you a very reasonable price due to their low storage costs and you have more options at your event, such as being able to stack the chairs neatly at the side of the room half way through the day in order to create a larger, open space. Chair that are stackable will usually be more comfortable than folding chairs too, due to the extra padding most varieties tend to have and the fact they are that little bit wider, making them perfect for events where your guests will be sitting for a prolonged period of time.
The chairs you use for your event need to be comfortable and look good. Selecting chairs is a process that needs some thought but, if chosen correctly, banquet chairs can greatly enhance the look of a room and offer a stylish overall effect.
