How to design a comfortable commercial patio

Monday, July 29th, 2013

Do you need to expand the lounge areas of your commercial business to accommodate more employees and clients alike?

Edwards & Hill Office Furniture is to help you create a well-designed commercial patio for entertainment and business interactions.

What is so great about having a commercial patio?

The patio in itself can help enliven lunchrooms, reception areas and more at any local business.

The commercial patio opens a door of opportunity for you to add comfort and style that’s normally seen only in home patio settings.

The most popular commercial patio designs are open designs because open spaces offer workers a space to rejuvenate during the workday. In many cases, the daily recess to the commercial patio can help increase overall work productivity.

When designing a commercial patio, you want one that all workers can enjoy anytime of day. We recommend furnishing the patio with both everyday, durable furniture items as well as elegant furniture items. Plastic patio furniture is just one type of durable furniture that is available.  An elegant type of patio furniture is wooden furniture.

The primary goal of patio furniture décor is to purchase furniture that fits your work culture in style while meeting your employees’ comfort needs.

It’s never a good idea to purchase patio furniture that can be easily damaged at the workplace. The patio furniture should also not make sitting for extensive amounts of time an extremely uncomfortable experience.

This is why we recommend ergonomic patio furniture. Ergonomic furniture has smooth edges, sturdiness and plenty of back support for all ages.

Once you have selected a particular patio furniture style, you can sit with our interior designers to identify what are the best color themes for your patio style and overall office design.

If you do not want to furnish your patio with plastic or wooden furniture, you can always go for wicker patio furniture.

Wicker furniture is perfect for a professional office space because the furniture is lightweight, highly durable and offers the patio space a classic look.

Wicker furniture is available in the following color themes:

-Olive green

-Light Brown

-Beige

-Black

-Dark brown

Edwards & Hill Office Furniture offers the following patio furniture:

-Wrought iron patio furniture

-Benches

-Patio chairs

-Reclining chairs

-Love seats

-Patio sets

-Low maintenance patio furniture

-And other hospitality furniture.

Dormitories : What are residential hall essentials?

Friday, July 12th, 2013

Is your college campus constructing or redesigning a residence hall? If yes, Edwards & Hill office Furniture is here to help you design highly attractive habitable areas.

The main rooms students use in college residential halls are the lounges, recreation rooms and most importantly their dorm rooms.

Each of these areas needs to be designed in a way that offers furniture flexibility and maximizes the usability of each area space.

Ideally, kitchen commons should be located in close proximity to the lounges and recreation rooms for added convenience to students.

For these entertainment areas, Edwards & Hill Office Furniture can provide audio/visual equipment to help meet a variety of applications needed for dorm safety presentations, social events and general hangout purposes.

Here is some audio/visual equipment recommended for residence halls:

-Telephones with telephone outlets

-Cable TV

-Computers

-And other communications equipment.

The Lounge

In the lounge area and recreation rooms, purchase multifunctional, compact and highly mobile furniture. For example, tables with casters are excellent for students as well as mobile coffee tables and cubed bookcases for study lounge areas.

As for the dorm room essentials, here are our recommendations:

-Built-in closets for single bedroom dorms

-Twin XL Beds

-Bunk beds

-Ergonomic seating

-Futon furniture

-And other hospitality furniture items.

The ideal dorm setting will make rearranging furniture a breeze.

High quality dorm furniture is truly a college necessity.

Here at Edwards & Hill Office Furniture, we offer additional services including furniture assembly services and interior design services/space planning. There should be enough room in the dorm setting to offer students the privilege to move work desks back-to-back or side-to-side. They should have the option to move their dressers in closets and more. The more space students have in their dorms, the better.

Checkout our foam filled seating, closet storage systems and more today.

How to revamp your hotel restaurant to maximize your profit

Monday, July 8th, 2013

Are you searching for ways to revamp your hotel restaurant to bring in more guests/ visitors?

Edwards & Hill Office Furniture is here to redesign and furnish your hotel restaurant in a way that’s irresistible to locals.

With trendy design elements, your hotel restaurant can become one of the hottest destinations in towns.

All it takes is good lighting, attention grabbing display specials, and comfortable dining and lounge furniture.

You can start promoting your hotel restaurant as one of the best places to eat in town, by branding it as a neighborhood hot spot.

A neighborhood hot spot should give off a casual vibe but still serve high quality food at a competitive price.

You may want your restaurant to include a dedicated space for a cool hang out like a rooftop bar or poolside bar for happy hour to establish a lively bar atmosphere (wine bars and martini bars are very popular) or casual dining section to the restaurant.

The casual dining section should be designed specifically for tourists; a more formal area of the restaurant should be designated for business travelers.

It’s important to revamp your hotel restaurant every few years because the restaurant could be a great source of income for your hotel – from hotel guests booking events to having casual meals right at your establishment, as well as local who know it is the place to be.

Edwards & Hill Office Furniture is here to make your hotel restaurant more than an amenity. We are here to design a hangout for great entertainment and high quality meals.

Here are furniture items that will give your hotel restaurant a modern design:

  • Free standing tables

  • Soft fabric furniture

  • Ergonomic seating

  • Barstools and footstools

  • Dining booths

  • Sleek banquet hall tables

Check out Edwards & Hill’s ergonomic seating products, Restaurant Furniture, and other Hospitality Furniture today to see what we can do to revamp your hotel restaurant.
