Read today's blog, which discusses the importance of your decisions when you need to furnish outdoor event spaces.

When it comes to planning an event, one of the key considerations is the furniture, and the areas that need to be furnished. While it’s easy to focus on the indoor event space, outdoor spaces are just as important – after all, there is no doubt that plenty of business deals and arrangements are made over a drink on a terrace.

In fact, furnishing outdoor event spaces can make a significant difference in the success of an event – just see these spaces as a natural extension of your indoor space, and you can’t go far wrong.

In this article, we will explore why it is important to furnish outdoor event spaces in the best way possible, according to the type of event you are holding and, of course, your budget (we all have them to work to!).


Furnishing outdoor event spaces is crucial to the comfort and enjoyment of the event of your guests. Outdoor events are often held during the warmer months, which means that guests will need a place to sit and relax in the (hopefully!) sunshine. Providing comfortable outdoor furniture such as patio chairs and tables, benches and outdoor rattan sets will make it more enjoyable for guests to spend time outside. And, if you’re lucky, you might even need to hire some parasols to provide some welcome shade from the hot sun – though we are in the UK after all…!

Aesthetic appeal

If you get it right, outdoor furniture hire can greatly enhance the aesthetic appeal of the event as well. Outdoor furniture comes in a variety of styles and colours, which means you can easily match the furniture to the theme and style of your event. This will create a cohesive and polished look that guests will appreciate. You want to be aiming for a stylish and professional look, yet still being inviting, engaging and, overall, a pleasant place to relax, socialise and network with colleagues, clients and delegates.


Spaces with outdoor furniture provide places for guests to sit, eat, and relax, meaning that pressure on the indoor event space can be removed to a certain extent. It can also help to create designated areas for guests to socialise, which will improve the flow of the event.

Increased capacity

And finally, furnishing outdoor event spaces can increase the capacity of the event. Outdoor furniture allows you to use more space for seating and can create more areas for guests to socialise. This means that you can accommodate more guests and create a larger event space. Let’s face it, the chances are that you will be paying for ALL the area – indoor and outdoor – and so you need to make this count!
