5 Things to Consider When Hiring Furniture

Hiring furniture for an event is an affordable alternative to purchasing and allows you to be creative with every unique event space. Opting for dry hire at a venue allows you to select specific designs from a large range of furniture and enables you to create a stylish space for your event. Here are 5 things you should consider when hiring furniture.


1. The Event Theme

If you want to impress event guests you should consider matching the furniture with the theme and design of your event. For example, our Ghost Victoria or White Folding Resin Chairs are perfect for a modern and light theme whereas our Tolix range is ideal for an industrial and trendy feel. Have your theme in mind while browsing for furniture to hire.

2. Event Space

One of the most important things to consider is whether the furniture you would like to hire will fit in your event space. If you want to seat 8 people on each table at a banquet, opting for the smaller 5ft6 Round Banquet Table may be a better option than hiring a 6ft Round Banquet Table if you are short for space. Make sure the furniture you hire will definitely fit in your space before spending money.

3. Number of Guests

The number of guests attending your event will also help you to decide the quantity of furniture you will need. If you are holding a corporate networking event you may not need a seat for every attendee; you could opt for poseur tables for guests to stand around and have a few seats available for those who want to sit down. At a banquet, on the other hand, you will need a seat for every guest.

4. Budget

Your budget will make a difference to the furniture and supplier you can afford to hire from. Fortunately, at Furniture Hire UK we pride ourselves on our affordable furniture and will also price-match if you find a cheaper quote elsewhere.

5. Weather

Weather is a crucial consideration, especially in the UK. If you are holding an event outside you should make sure the furniture is waterproof in case of sudden rain. Check that LED furniture and other battery-operated items are ok to use outside before you hire.
