ROI from your outdoor space

  • POSTED ON: Wednesday 04, 2017

Outdoor space is becoming more and more popular in the UK. These areas are great for revenue boosting in a restaurant as long as the space is appealing, smart, attractive, and clean.

Aesthetically pleasing, fir for purpose and appropriate furniture is always a challenge for the restaurant owner because of the Great British elements, however the outdoor space needs to be utilised as much as the indoor space because extra covers means extra revenue – if the space can be incorporated into the design of the restaurant or brand then this is a winner.

UHS has spent a lot of resources and time designing and developing a superb range of non-wood Mill tables that have an authentic look and feel like real wood. These products fit well into design schemes, are cigarette proof, maintenance free, and easy to clean.

Wooden tables placed outside need maintenance and probably have a maximum lifespan of two years, while UHS’ Mill tables are guaranteed for five years without maintenance, which makes them a no-brainer for the Return on Investment (ROI) for outdoor dining.

As part of the ongoing mission to be the leading furniture brand in hospitality, UHS is developing software and design platforms to ensure the specification process is easy, enjoyable and empowering. Recently the launch of youdesign campaign is just a start of the journey.

Youdesign is a platform where you can choose a product, configurate in your own design, download, specify, purchase or have fun.

From choosing the wood finish to picking the colour of the frame, the tool lets you customise the minute details of your furniture, giving those working in the hospitality industry increased control and flexibility when it comes to the design of their venues.

The pioneering online tool was designed bespoke by UHS, with user experience front of mind. The service uses colour, material and price filters which let you quickly browse and select your preferred options. You can then save an image of your masterpiece when you’re done – perfect for adding to moodboards or sharing on social media!

Whether you’re furnishing a venue from scratch and looking for a full suite of furniture, or you’re hoping to revamp an existing layout, this tool can be used to create the perfect fit.

Enjoy the experience

So last week I had the experience of working in New York, travelling via Uber, working in a coworking space, ordering lunch via (USA’s version of Deliveroo) – Great I could get used to this…!

Whilst there I was among digital creatives, coders, international representatives, fashion and music companies. The respect was great, the atmosphere was that of a buzzing office, everyone was working and enjoying it, there were meetings in the meeting rooms, or over Skype, collaboration was happening between companies and individuals, networking is a thing that happens day in day out!

What impressed me was looking around, the style of these spaces are embracing the fun element with comfort, design that looks great but not breaking the budget. The chairs, stools, tables and sofas all are design led. From looking at our product ranges we could easily supply them all and they would fit well if you had a budget to work with.

Our furniture is entering the workplace more and more so we are making it easier for you to choose online so you can create that feeling of fun, comfort and your own customised design using our YouDesign configurator tool… its a new ag(il)e way of customising your very own designs! Have a play and have fun here…

As quoted on their website The Ned is ‘A historic building reborn in the city’ An iconic space that has been meticulously refurbished to an extremely high standard. From its history as a Midland Bank storing the jewels and wealth it is now a 5 star hotel opening its doors to the exclusive members to spend a night or two, enjoy one of the nine restaurants, hold a business event or get pampered in the spa.

UHS Group, a leading supplier of design led furniture, were chosen to supply a number of products from barstools, seating, upholstered products and rooftop external furniture. These were exclusively designed for this flagship project using special finishes, specific fabrics and leathers.

Dan Gillmore, Marketing Director said; ‘We are pleased to be part of this fantastic project and look forward to paying a visit, a great location and great idea that will be a part of the London social scene no doubt!’
