We have discussed this a bit before but what level of class should you give your outdoor bar furniture? While only you can decide that we want to give you some serious food for thought on the matter. If you have never put any real thought into it before you should. You may be sending the wrong impression to the people you enjoy hanging out with by the impression you give them.
Before making any choices you should first decide who your friends are. Look at your income level first, a good honest look. That might not always be fun but it is something you need to do. If you have some friends who are working class or lower middle then you are probably in the lowbrow category. This does not mean bad. Things like rocking chairs, basic lounges and other nice pieces are parts of this. There is nothing inherently wrong with it. Highbrow conversely is not necessarily right. Many of the parts of high design are somewhat wasteful. What matters is which one your guests and family are going to be comfortable with.
If the lowbrow outdoor furniture style fits them then you want to look through normal big box stores. They often have pieces that look good at an affordable price which are not in with the wacky trends of high fashion. This could be anything from a leather bar stool to a smaller shelf for the outdoors. Even a minor canopy can be a good choice for this style as long as it is durable and has a solid color. If this is the type you are looking for you may want to go with a traditional party atmosphere with lively music and dancing. A traditional party still cannot be beat in the modern day, try as some people might.
The highbrow style of outdoor furniture can be difficult to manage. This is because people in that area often have big expectations from their friends. Resentment can even be created if the decoration goes over or under what they want. The trends also change quite a bit as well. Look into what materials and styles are popular in 2014 for this. For example you could look at some articles on this very blog as we have discussed it a bit already. Even when setting things up with outside restaurant furniture you need to keep clients in mind.
Drinks are another part of this as well. You want to bring a hardy ale to a low party and some fine wine to a high party. Ask your guests what they prefer as well because amusingly enough the varieties of each vary as widely as each other. Some of your people in both cases may prefer microbrewery portions as well. Others may want to have a very old beverage poured out for them, while some like the newer ones as they have a lighter flavor.
In either case only you can tell what category the people you care about are in. Make your own choices on how to set everything up for them. We are sure they will appreciate your work with outdoor bar furniture.
