How To Choose Your Hotel Furniture
How To Choose Your
Whether you're looking to furnish a brand new hotel or just trying to spruce up an older space with a new hotel layout, a big factor when making a space look good is the choice of furniture.
There are some things that you can keep in mind when trying to pick the right furniture for your hotel, and your choices can have a big impact on how the customer remembers their stay at your hotel. So, with that in mind, let's look at some important considerations.
How to choose your key pieces
In order to make sure that your furniture all fits together, it's a good idea to decide on the larger items first, as these are the ones likely to dominate the room. Once you have chosen these focal points, you are able to start building the rest of the interior design around them.
It can be a good idea to keep in mind things like colour, materials, texture and shapes when choosing your hotel furniture, and deciding whether they will fit cohesively together.
It goes without saying that one of the most important components of hotel furniture are the beds.
Choosing the correct hotel bed can be difficult. After all, from the customer's perspective it could be the difference between a restful, peaceful stay at a hotel and an uncomfortable one – which will greatly impact how they view the quality of their stay. No matter how good everything else is, a bad bed could mean a bad review.
Additionally, quality bedding is incredibly important as well. Again, having colours that match here is a good way to reinforce your brand's identity, and remind the customer of where they are staying. This can be a good tool for reinforcing those positive memories so people return time and time again.
Chairs & Tables
After the beds, the chairs and tables are naturally the next big pieces to consider, and they come in a wide variety of styles and materials.
Thankfully, a lot of chair and table styles fit well together. For example, an aluminium chair will not look out of place under a wooden table, and vice versa. For this reason it is more important to pick chairs and tables that will last, and stand up to a lot of use before showing wear.
For that extra put-together look, it might be worth looking for chairs and tables with matching materials and styles. Our collections of chairs, tables and stools ensure that every room, from the lobby to the bedrooms, looks professional, sharp, and tied together.
Our variety of mix-and-match table tops and bases also let you add some individuality and variety to your spaces, adding colour and visual interest to a space.
Tie your furniture together
Now that you hopefully have a better idea of how to choose your key pieces of hotel furniture, now it is time to add the little extra items that will make your hotel stand out and catch the eye.
As mentioned earlier, the use of bedding can not only make a comfortable bed and mattress even more comfortable, but also if the use of colour and texture is considered, it can be used to tie entire rooms together. Matching bedding with other soft furnishings, like the carpets and curtains, can evoke a feeling of continuation in the design, making a room look more professionally-designed.
This also can really aid with brand identity and recognition – the more cohesive and matching the furniture is, the more a hotel will feel like it all adheres to the same theme. The use of this technique can help even the smallest independent hotel look as polished as their national and international counterparts.
Take other tricks from interior design in order to beautify your hotel. For example, the use of mirrors to make rooms look bigger and spaces look more open is well-utilised in hotels, and is something that can be employed to bring more light to your room.
Also, the use of candles, ornaments, bookends and other small decorative items can make a place look more lived-in and homely. Clinical, empty shelves can look good if your hotel's interior is ultra-modern and minimalist, but otherwise it's a good idea to populate your surfaces with some visual excitement.
Consistency is Key
As we can see, one of the main things to keep in mind when choosing furniture is consistency. An eclectic mix of styles can look good if done properly, but can be difficult to achieve without the help of a professional designer, or at least somebody with a natural talent for interior design.
