Summer is just around the corner and that means it's time to start thinking about refurbishing your golf club bar in time for members to enjoy post-round lunches or drinks. If your clubhouse furniture is looking a little tired, don't worry - we have some tips on how to refurbish your furniture in time for the summer season and to last for years to come. Whether you're looking to buy new golf clubhouse furniture or just want to save some money on your current setup, we've got you covered.

Refurbishing tables and chairs 

Refurbishing the tables and chairs you already have is a great way to save money, and it can be done relatively easily. A fresh coat of paint or varnish will do wonders for tired looking furniture, and new cushions or seat covers can brighten up any room. If you're feeling adventurous, you could even try upholstering your golf club chairs with some fun summer fabrics - this is a great way to add a light and contemporary touch to your clubhouse.

Our top furniture refurbishment tips:

  • Start by cleaning and sanding down any tables to create a smooth surface.
  • Once you have sanded down your tables, apply a fresh coat of paint or varnish - if you choose to paint them, make sure to apply a good primer first to help the paint stick better.
  • If you have any chairs that are looking a little worse for wear, but the frames are still in good condition, consider reupholstering them. This is a much cheaper option than purchasing new ones. Discover our reupholstery service here.
  • Finally, add some finishing touches to your furniture with new cushions, seat covers or other accessories.

Buying new furniture for your golf club

Sometimes your furniture may be too far gone to refurbish so you’ll need to invest in some new tables and chairs. When it comes to golf club furniture, there are a few things you need to take into account. First of all, what is the overall theme or style of your clubhouse? This will dictate the type of furniture you will need to purchase. For example, if your clubhouse has a more traditional look rooted in its heritage, then you'll want to focus on finding furniture that has a classic design. However, if your clubhouse is more modern in style, then you'll need to focus on finding furniture that is more contemporary in design. Once you've determined the overall theme or style of your clubhouse, you can start shopping for golf clubhouse furniture.

The Sorrento Chair is a great option for a classic golf club look. Not only is it stylish and comfortable, it’s built for contract use, so it can withstand heavy use. The chair also comes in faux leather or fabric and a choice of colours, so you can easily match it to your club's style. If you're looking for some variety, the Cube Deluxe Chester Stool pairs well with the Sorrento Chair. Again, the classic design works well in either a modern or traditional setting. The stool is compact yet luxurious so it can provide extra seating for members, without taking up valuable space in your club.

When shopping for golf club furniture, it's a good idea to keep an eye out for sales and discounts. Here at Trent Furniture we often have a range of items on sale where you can save a significant amount of money on your purchase. By taking advantage of these offers, you can easily furnish your entire clubhouse without breaking the bank.

Once you've found the perfect golf club furniture for your clubhouse, it's important to take care of it properly. Golf club furniture is an investment and should be treated as such. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions for cleaning and maintaining your furniture. By taking proper care of your golf course furniture, you can ensure that it will last for years to come.

Has your oak furniture become scratched and worn over time? In the hospitality environment, your furniture is inevitably going to be subjected to some heavy wear and tear, which will eventually leave it looking a little worse for wear. In this blog post, we will discuss how to remove scratches from oak furniture and how to prevent your furniture from getting scratched in the first place. So, whether your furniture is new or old, follow these tips and you'll be able to restore it to its former glory.

Removing light scratches from oak furniture

If you have light scratches on your oak furniture, there are a few easy ways to remove them. One way is to rub the scratch with a walnut. The natural oils in the walnut will help to blend the scratch into the furniture. You can also try using furniture polish. Apply a small amount of polish to a soft cloth and rub it into the scratch. The polish will help to fill in the scratch and make it less noticeable. If these methods don't work, you can always sand the scratch lightly with fine-grit sandpaper. Be sure to sand in the direction of the grain to avoid damaging the furniture.

Fixing deep scratches on oak furniture

Deep scratches will require a little more work to fix, but it is still possible to repair them yourself. First, try using a wood filler. Apply the filler to the scratch and allow it to dry. Once it is dry, sand the area until it is smooth. You can then stain or paint the area to match the rest of the furniture. If the scratch is still visible, you may need to repeat this process several times. For deep scratches that are difficult to repair, you may need to consult a professional furniture restorer.

Professional oak furniture repairs

If you have deep scratches on your furniture, don't have the time, or even if you just don't feel confident in repairing them yourself, we offer a handy furniture repair and restoration service, so you can get your oak furniture back into shape in no time and at a fair price.

Preventing scratches on your oak furniture

One of the best ways to prevent your furniture from getting scratched is to use coasters. By using these, you can protect your furniture from water rings and other marks. Make sure you use coasters that are the right size for your furniture and are made of a soft material. You should also avoid placing hot dishes or cups directly on your tables. Another way to prevent scratches is to use furniture pads on the feet of your furniture. These pads will cushion your furniture and help to prevent scratches on both your furniture and floors when you move things around. Finally, be careful when cleaning your furniture. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as these can damage the finish of your furniture.

Investing in new oak furniture

If your furniture is too damaged to repair, then it’s time to invest in some new oak furniture. The Rectangular Wellington Table is a great option for a pub or restaurant as it is designed to withstand the rigorous demands of the contract environment. This table pairs well with matching wooden chairs such as the Straight Leg Mates Chair and the Straight Leg Captains Chair because they have similar turned legs and traditional style. However, this table also looks great with more modern chairs such as the Abbruzzo Faux Leather Chair for more of a contrast between traditional and contemporary.

Whatever it is you’re looking for, we have a huge range of contract grade, stylish oak furniture to suit any setting.
