Practical, space
saving solutions

The dining hall in any education establishment if the very heart of the building. Whether you need an area to serve the food that you prepare on the premises or for your students to eat the lunches they bring from home it is important to select the most appropriate furniture for the job.

Dining and canteen furniture should be durable, sturdy and most importantly easy to clean as there is a likelihood it will be subjected to plenty of spillages over the course of its life. For many educational establishments space is at a premium which means that selecting space saving school dining room furniture is a must. Folding furniture such as tables can easily be moved to the side of your canteen and stored out of the way allowing the room to be used for other things. Chairs are usually stacked up at the side of the room as well in order to clear the floor space.

In higher education establishments such as colleges and universities, there is less need to clear up school canteen furniture in order to use the room for other things. This means that rather than the more traditional style of school dining tables you could consider other styles. Café tables and chairs or even bistro style tables and chairs work well in these types of settings. Another option that may work well in a higher education setting are fast food seating units where the chairs and tables are set out properly and cannot easily be moved around.
