Don’t underestimate the challenges and costs of a bar refurbishment

The bar market can be a very competitive, but also intensely exciting one, enabling the owner to combine what may be two of their greatest loves: nightlife and business.

However, if you are acquiring a bar that requires refurbishment or simply feel that your existing establishment is in need of a new lease of life, you will have to do much more than simply purchase the first new bar furniturethat catches your eye.

Starting a bar afresh can be especially tough

It is expensive to start a bar even if you are making use of a former bar premises that may already seem to have many of the essential elements you require. Of course, if you are retrofitting a bar from scratch, you can expect costs easily running into the tens of thousands.

Everything from lighting and music systems to the kind of bar furniture that we can supply here at Design & Contracts will cost money, although there will be full fit out and refurbishment services to suit your most specific creative and budgetary requirements.

Are your refurbishment plans affordable?

This will always be one of the uppermost priorities of those looking to refurbish a bar, although the good news is that there are many ways to minimise costs.

Such methods include identifying and investing in any existing features on the premises that would lend your bar a distinctive character, such as eye-catching walls, flooring or works of art.

You may also consider the potential for currently unused or underused areas – such as any outdoor or terrace area – to be turned into revenue-earning ones. Also think about the impression that your bar establishment makes from the street – are the windows clean, does the signage capture the right kind of attention and is the outdoor bar furniture as stylish as the indoor bar furniture?

Comfort, of course, is also crucial. The good news is that the bar stools and other furniture that provide such comfort, while also best reflecting the image to which you aspire for your bar, can be obtained through Design & Contract Furniture’s highly rated supply service, at an affordable price.

With such comprehensive furniture services available for you to take advantage of when you next need to refurbish a bar, why should you look to any company other than Design & Contracts?
