Where a hotel is concerned, there’s just so much to think about because no two areas are the same. As a result, you will be thinking carefully about what hotel furniture, accessories, colour, décor and lighting go where.
Your foyer will call for a perfectly positioned reception desk teamed with various seating and table options for guests to perch briefly before they move on to their next destination.
Your bar and restaurant will need various different seating areas consisting of sofas, dining tables, and chairs and bar stools. This space will be planned carefully to ensure you have the optimum space between tables, to ensure a lively yet not too crowded ambiance.
Then there are your bedrooms – if your guests don’t get a good night’s sleep, then it’s highly unlikely they will return, so you are always striving to ensure your bedrooms are a relaxing haven.
Many people visit hotels for business purposes as well as pleasure and it’s important to ensure your conference area (if you have one) is furnished and decorated appropriately. A business conference can last all day, some even a few days and so seating does need to be comfortable so as not to result in restless and irritable employees. Breakout areas call for more comfortable seating and low tables – remember breakout sessions are for discussion, creativity, and feedback and providing a relaxed area
It’s clear that a hotel is like a house – each area serves a different purpose and so your hotel furniture and décor within each area also needs to serve a purpose. However, it’s important to ensure they work in harmony with one another and all uphold both your brand and your style.
