Upgrade your canteen this summer

We understand it can be overwhelming when choosing the right school canteen furniture to suit your environment! The furniture you require may depend on the number of students and whether the school is a primary or secondary school. In this blog we will run through the benefits of upgrading, as well as recommendations for schools so you know all the facts before purchasing this summer!

Why should you Upgrade your School Furniture?⬆️

Whatever the age, all students require the opportunity to eat, socialise and rest during their lunch breaks. Generally, this allows time for students to rejuvenate and feel ready to re-focus during their school day. Therefore, comfortable Canteen furniture needs to be considered for a range of educational stages from nursery, primary, secondary, college and even university.

As canteen furniture is used a minimum 5 times a week, the furniture must be resistant to wear and tear. School canteen furniture needs to be easy to clean for hygiene, stack, fold and must be easy to move around. For smaller schools, multi-functional furniture is ideal, as many canteen halls are used for P.E lessons and assembly.

Summer is the perfect time to revamp your school canteen, meaning students can return in September to new comfortable furniture! This will give your school a fresh feel for new students joining the school that year!
