Brighten up your
outside space

When it comes to purchasing equipment for your educational establishment, don’t forget the biggest area that you have. The outdoor areas are just as important as the indoor ones and you should ensure that you equip them accordingly with the appropriate outdoor furniture.

Studies have shown just how beneficial being in the fresh air can be for students of all ages, so you want to make sure that the outdoor areas of your establishment are just as inviting as the indoor ones. When outdoor school furniture is mentioned you probably think of a couple of benches, and perhaps some outdoor tables and chairs, but there are a few more things you should consider. Litter bins are really important in terms of outdoor furniture as they help you to ensure that the outdoor areas of your establishment are kept clean and tidy and are an inviting place for everyone to be. Noticeboards can also be a good idea as well. They are a great place to display notices that parents may need to see, or simply the rules you want your students to adhere to; things like putting their litter in the bins, no pushing and shoving etc.

At Elm Workspace we only supply outdoor furniture from the leading manufacturers in the UK. These companies produce high quality items that have been designed with durability in mind, they understand that not only do these items need to withstand the wide range of weather that they will be subjected to here in the UK, but also the rigours of daily use by large numbers of students. These items have been built with longevity in mind, and where appropriate treated so that they will last.

If you are looking to equip an outdoor area, then there are a number of things you will need to decide. When purchasing outdoor furniture for schools that includes chairs and tables you will need to think about where you will be placing it. Obviously, placing it on a hard surface rather than the grass will help it last longer and will make it easier to use through out the year. You should also think about how many pupils will be using it at a time. Whilst it would be lovely to provide outdoor seating for everyone this would of course mean losing too much of the outdoor space that children could run around in.
