The chairs are mainly made of wood or metal and tend to come in either a stackable format or in a folding format. For your own particular event, whatever its descript, you have to weigh in on these various options, as, with most things, each come with their own sets of pros and cons, and needless to say, you need to think about whether or not the ones you get will be suitable for your event.

Think about the expense
Running a large scale event can clearly be a rather expensive thing to do. If you're looking to save money, then metal folding chairs are typically the cheapest choice. Nonetheless with this option, you have to consider that as they are metal chairs they might not be the most comfortable chairs, however they are light and possess fantastic durability. With purchasing metal banquet chairs you'll want to ensure that they're made of good quality metal and are protected adequately against rust.

For chairs that are both comfortable and aren't going to cause too much of a dent in your bank balance, I suggest chairs that have plastic seats and backs to them but that have metal frames. These form of hybrid chairs offer more comfort than chairs produced entirely out of metal. As they have plastic elements to them the chairs are more flexible and are able to work to the contours of someone's body.

On the higher end of things folding banquet chairs are generally made of wood or resin. Wooden foldable chairs often are equipped with padded seats which offer comfort, customizability, and are also aesthetically pleasing. Wooden folding chairs particular main pro is that it does look good, most definitely the best looking banquet chairs available. Compared to other styles and materials however they can be pricey, but you DO get what you pay for.

Take Into Account Flexibility and Comfort

These stackable chairs also do tend to be wider chairs and as such are usually more comfortable. If the reason you need to use banquet chairs, is for food service, then I suggest that you use a darker coloured and especially stain resistant fabric. When you take into account what you'll need the chairs for, and what your spending budget is, you will find the best option for you quite simply.
