This month I have two industry insights to share with you.

Firstly, if you have painted furniture around your outdoors, you must give it a regular, thorough check over to make sure it is fit for purpose. Painting furniture with layers of paint is a great way to give it a fresh look, but do be mindful of rot. No matter how sturdy your furniture is, it won’t last forever. Do not deceive your customers by offering nice looking furniture that may harbour a hazard. Check the legs and underneath the furniture and inspect the unpainted wood for any cracks and weak points.

Secondly, installing sturdy and reliable furniture and accessories around your outdoors will absolutely save your staff time and unnecessary hassle. Don’t allow your customers to complain to your waiting staff about “wonky tabletops” or “no room for buggies and pushchairs.” Choosing your furniture range from Woodberry of Leamington Spa will keep your staff and customers happy.

For a complimentary appraisal of your outdoor space and to ensure you are maximising it to its full potential, give me a call and I will happily help you by telephone or a site visit.”
