There are many reasons that people decide to spend an evening in a hotel. If you are preparing to open a hotel then you should understand that hotel furniture is vitally important to the comfort and secure feelings of your hotel guests. You want to provide quality that is unquestionable and comfort that is unmatched when selecting the furniture for your hotel. You definitely want your guests to leave planning to come back again.
You may be wondering why quality is so important in hotel furniture. There are at least five reasons to consider out of the box that are appropriate for hotels on all end of the price range. If you don’t at least meet the minimums of these five reasons you need to reconsider your furniture and décor choices because they could be damaging your business and the reputation of your business.
Quality furniture and décor provides hotel guests with a sense of comfort. You want the furniture to be comfortable for those that are your guests without question but you also want to choose furniture that will provide them with mental comfort that your hotel has their best interests at heart. If you provide comfortable surroundings for your guests, chances are much greater that they will not only return but also share their positive reviews with others.
It is probable however, that if you fail to deliver these things they will let everyone they know hear about it. For some reason people are much more eager to share bad experiences rather than positive experiences. You want, at all times, to provide a positive experience for your hotel guests. Giving them furniture and surroundings that are comfortable is a great beginning in that effort. Avoid allowing your guests to feel uncomfortable by making bad or cheap furniture choices. Go for quality and the comfort it provides.
People feel more secure in surroundings that are visually appealing. It may not really matter one bit in the grand scheme of things but the feeling of security is one that you definitely want your hotel to portray. Remember that this business is all about making your guests feel as comfortable as possible. It is nearly impossible to feel comfortable and welcomed when you feel threatened or afraid in your surroundings.
Hotel rooms should be furnished and decorated in a manner that invites peaceful and relaxing thoughts not one that leads your guests to worry about gang violence or the possibility of room raids. Furniture that is elegant in design, walls that are lightly colored, and muted artwork are great tools used by hotels to promote a sense of security. Other tools to promote security are furniture that is comfortable, well designed, and durable. You want the furniture you purchase to last without fraying or appearing dirty or stained. Stains, rips, frayed edges and such are things that lead to guests feeling less secure in their surroundings. Quality furniture provides a sense of security and is likely to stand up to use without showing wear as quickly as cheap furniture.
Quality furniture creates an aura of respectability for you and your hotel. If your goal is to provide the very best in guest services and customer satisfaction then you need to begin by offering quality hotel furniture that is visually appealing as much as it is comfortable for the evening. You need to pay attention to detail in the furnishing from the hotel lobby to the hallways and definitely in the rooms and suites. You want your guests to find your hotel meets and exceeds all their expectations.
Too many hotels focus all their decorating and furniture design efforts on the lobby and pay little attention to details when it comes to guest rooms. You need to provide equal care and attention to both. The lobby is a first impression and you do want to make an excellent first impression. At the same time you want the rooms to be respectable as well. This means you should attend to stains, repair wobbly tables, remove broken items, and replace them as quickly as possible. In order to retain respectability you need to make sure that every piece of furniture in your hotel is not only quality but also properly maintained.
Quality hotel furniture, artwork, and design should be soothing. Most people rent hotel rooms as a place to rest their heads at night. The hotel is generally a place to stay while traveling. It doesn’t matter whether your guests are traveling for business or pleasure it matters that the hotel is not the destination in general but a place to relax while at (or on their way to) their destination. You need to create an atmosphere that is soothing so that they can properly unwind after a long day on the road, doing business, or playing in the sun (when vacationing). The right furniture can provide this sense of solace and so much more. You must choose excellent quality and have a great eye. It helps to find a designer that specializes in hotel furnishings if you are concerned about your ability to put together a soothing palette for your hotel furniture, walls, and art.
This is perhaps the most important consideration for hotel furniture. You want your guests to get a good night’s sleep more than anything else. That is generally why they decide to purchase a hotel room in the first place. You need to invest quite a bit of time and attention to finding the right furniture for bedding, seating, and for working if you cater to a business clientele. But the bedding is what is going to make the money for you. If you offer comfortable bedding furniture in your hotel you will be on to something since so few do.
Quality is an extremely important consideration when selecting hotel furniture. If you want to create an environment that invites guests to return year after year then you will need to make quality furniture a priority for your hotel business.
