The difference between water-repellent and water-resistant
Water-repellent: This means that the material or product can resist water to a certain extent. Drops of water can bead up and roll off the surface, allowing them to be easily wiped away without the water penetrating or damaging the underlying material.
Water-resistant: This term indicates a higher level of protection against water. A water-resistant product can withstand prolonged exposure to water without it penetrating. This property is particularly useful for items intended for outdoor use, as they have to withstand various weather conditions.
In terms of matching indoor and outdoor table arrangements, this includes operational efficiency and cost savings. Using the same decoration in both areas simplifies your operations and allows you to source materials from a single supplier. In addition, maintaining a consistent look reinforces your brand identity and aesthetics.
How much space do I need for outdoor catering?
Providing outdoor catering is an excellent way for restaurants and hotels to attract more customers and increase their sales. However, it is important to have enough space to accommodate your guests comfortably, otherwise you may have a negative impact on your customer reviews and business. So, how much outdoor catering space is needed? The amount of outdoor space you need depends on the size of your business and the number of guests you plan to serve. The rule of thumb is that there should be enough outdoor space to accommodate at least 50% of your indoor capacity. For restaurants, this usually means at least 5-10 square feet of outdoor space per guest. For example, for a restaurant with indoor seating for 50 people, you will need at least 250-500 square feet outside. Hotels may need larger spaces as they tend to cater to larger groups of customers for events such as weddings, conferences and banquets. In this case, they would aim for around 100 square feet per person.
