The furniture you choose for your hospitality business is about so much more than function. It offers comfort to your guests, the exact thing they hope to find during their getaway. It also sets the aesthetic tone for your business. For instance, the seating in your lounge is one of the first things guests will notice when they enter. When they enter their room, the furnishing often makes the style and vibe of the room.
With so much weighing on your hotel furniture, finding the right pieces can be a difficult decision. Here are a few things you’ll want to consider when choosing furniture for your hospitality business:
How much space you have will be a major factor in the furniture you choose. Your common areas and rooms should feel warm and comfortable, but not too cluttered. There should be plenty of walkable space for guests as well as a feeling of openness. If you’re working with a smaller space, minimalist furniture might best serve you. If you have a large space that you want to feel a little cozier, opt for plush upholstery and deep colors.
You’ll need to carefully measure the dimensions of the space as well as the dimensions of your furniture. This is one reason why working with a hospitality furniture manufacturer is really the way to go. Rather than buying furniture that fits within your space, you can simply send your dimensions to the manufacturer and they will build furniture that suits your needs.
Budget is another important consideration, as it is with any business expenses. The right furniture will lead to happy customers and a potential to bring in more customers. But if you blow your budget on furniture, it could take some time to recover.
Sometimes you can find ways to get quality furniture at a lower than average cost. For instance, Premier Hospitality has a factory in Tijuana, Mexico, which allows us to save on overhead costs of supplies and materials. Because of this, we’re able to offer lower rates than some of the competition. You can also be on the lookout for special offers or seasonal discounts.
Style trends come and go, but true style is meant to last. More than that, you likely have a vibe in mind that you want your hotel to give off. Do you want to be known as chic, swanky, and modern? Or do you want to be a cozy home away from home? Your style is a part of your brand. Your furniture, in addition to your lighting, will be the main thing that helps to create that style.
If you’re very particular about creating a cohesive style throughout your hospitality business, you might consider custom furniture rather than buying premade furniture. With custom furniture, the manufacturer will bring your vision to life, so the result is sure to suit your preferred aesthetic.
We’ve discussed the benefits of choosing a furniture manufacturer to furnish your hospitality business. You can find custom furniture that fits your space at a cost you can afford…if you find the right manufacturer. Take some time to look through their body of work and see if it fits your needs. Talk to them about your project and what they can bring to the table. If you leave that conversation feeling confident, you’ve made the right decision.
