What to look for in hotel outdoor furniture
When buying furniture, it is hard to know what to look for. There are so many suppliers you need to ensure you have a brief understanding of what you are buying first.
When considering new furniture for hotel or other commercial outdoor furnishings keep these points in mind:
- They can be moveable or fixed in place
Outdoor umbrellas offer flexibility in both location and fixing options, meaning you can either select a heavy base with wheels which will hold it down but still allow it to be moved (this is size dependant). If you have a decked area plates are available to use so you can bolt to the joists. A more permanent and stronger option is to concrete the umbrella into ground. Either way, it’s completely up to you
