If you walk into a cafe, restaurant, bar or even a hotel, you might see a tub chair that you can relax and sink into before you start your meal or order your coffee. They are popular as accent chairs and are utilised for their comfort. Tub chairs help create a warm atmosphere as their backs and arms wrap around you like a hug and allow you to B Seated for longer periods of time. [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="919"](image) Custom Chairs at The Star[/caption] Tub chairs, or bucket chairs as some people know them by, are simplistic yet customisable in different fabrics and colours. It is a great option for your customers to lounge in whilst they wait for a table and can even serve as an option for a meeting place.
Purpose of your venueThe type of fabric you will need for your tub chairs will depend on the purpose of your venue. These chairs are popular in waiting rooms, hotel lobbies and even doctor's rooms. For example, a family orientated venue should be considerate of children, and so vinyl is a good option as it is more durable and easier to keep clean. Traditionally having arms, tub chairs provide great support. We especially recommend them for aged care facilities as they are comfortable over long periods of time, and the arms allow people to stand easier. Tub chairs are not exclusive to waiting rooms, as you can see in Chula, they have used custom rattan tub chairs as dining chairs to create a point of difference for their venue.

To put it simply, a dry bar table is a bar table that is 110 cm compared to a standard commercial table which is 75-76 cm high. Dry bar tables are not limited to a standard looking bar table. Here at B Seated, your dry bar tables can be customised in a variety of different makes, styles and, designs, from an intimate round table for two through to larger square tables which accompany sitting or standing. Our tables are designed to be placed in tight corners and awkward spaces where a normal table cannot usually fit. Recently, dry bar tables have started to become popular because they can be used in a variety of different environments. They are often heat proof, scratch resistant, don't fade easily or crack. These are popular in fast paced environments because they are very portable and can be moved around to accommodate your traffic. Importantly, dry bar tables are strong and durable which outlasts many other tables. [caption id="attachment_1623" align="alignnone" width="919"](image) Bar Tables at Kingpin Crown Casino[/caption]
Different types of bar tablesWhen looking for a bar table, you will need to consider the type and form you are after. In order to accommodate for your customers you need to think about the type you are after. Are you after a one that people can stand and place drinks and food on? Or perhaps a small round bar table that allows people to sit and chat? These can range from a rustic, outdoor bar table to a traditional, indoor modern bar table.

Where will these be used?
IndoorsWhen looking for indoor bar tables, you will need a table that sparks curiosity and sophistication but also combines form and functionality. We recommend our popular Solid Marble Table Top, as this doubles as a workstation for your customers, or our Bayview Table Top if you are looking for a table that can be used for cafes and restaurants. B Seated projects that have used indoor bar tables include Cod's Gift and Collins Square. [caption id="attachment_1638" align="aligncenter" width="840"](image) Bayview Bar Table[/caption]
OutdoorsOutdoor bar tables need to be weatherproof and durable. The last thing you want is a one that becomes damaged in the heat or falls apart in the rain. Non-slatted and solid timber table tops will split outdoors, we strongly recommend our Slatted Timber Table Tops for outdoor use. As mentioned in our last blog post, these are extremely versatile and can be used in multiple environments. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="1000"](image) Slatted Timber Table Top[/caption]
Height of Bar TablesThe most common height for a dry bar table is 110 cm. This height has been determined to be the most ergonomic and the optimal height for a table that services both a seated and standing user. This height works well when a person is standing on one side and another sitting on the other. For example, a bartender preparing drinks whilst on his feet and the customer enjoys the drinks while on a seat. These can double as a place for people to lean on while they wait for the rest of their party to arrive.
