Chair Hire Check-List

When planning an event, Chairs is one of the most important considerations. Whether it’s for a party or function, a wedding or a low-key affair, it’s guaranteed that your guests will spend some time sitting over the course of the event. It’s essential that everyone on the guest list has a seat but also critical that they feel comfortable. Aesthetic factors should also be taken into considerations as the right chairs can amplify the atmosphere of an event.

Planning can be overwhelming and you have so many requirements to consider but don’t fear. We have compiled a Chair Check-List to help you identify the perfect chairs for your event.

Is the Event Inside or Outside?

If you know your event is taking outside, this will help narrow down your search. For outdoor events, you would want a sturdy chair that isn’t prone to weather damage. Stackable Tolix chairs, stools and Folding Padded Chairs are great options, as they can be stacked quickly. These chair also have the added protection of being waterproof should you be greeted with an unexpected drizzle of rain.

Is the event themed?

If your event is themed, the style of chair plays an important role in creating the overall atmosphere of an event. The last thing you would want is for your chairs to clash with your theme. If you’re hosting a professional function, simple and minimalist options are ideal like our Conference Chair. Weddings call for our stylish yet formal Tiffany Chairs – available in white, silver, gold, black and clear, or White Padded Folding Chairs. Birthdays and parties invite a bit of fun – our Wire Chair, coloured Tolix Stool will certainly add a pop of personality and contemporary style to your event.

How long will guests be sitting for?

Will your event include lots of speeches? Will your party or function include a sit-down meal with multiple courses? If so, opting for padded seats with suitable back support will provide much-needed comfort for your guests.

On the other hand, if the majority of your event is to involve lots of dancing, mingling and finger food, the comfort level of the provided seating shouldn’t be as much of a concern – bar stools are a great option in this case.

How old are your guests?

One consideration of chairs that can be easily overlooked is the age of attendees. Seating for a party where the majority of guests are children or young adults will look entirely different to that of an older or mixed crowd which includes people aged 70+. Comfort by way of sturdy seating is essential for older guests, whereas a younger crowd may be happier to stand for longer periods of time and won’t require the same level of support.
