How To Select And Buy Hotel Furniture If you are a new hotel owner then you probably know how difficult it can be to decide on the hotel furniture that you should put to make your guests feel comfortable.
The problem seems to grow with the size of the hotel.
The best way to approach the buying of hotel furniture is to use the sets method. You just need to decide the set that is used in one guest room. All the rest will just be furnished in the same manner. Once you have decided on the theme of the guest rooms then you will simply follow the same theme in other rooms unless there are those that you want to be distinctively different for purposes that would be of interest to the guests.
If you are now looking for this kind of uniformity then you can jut choose furniture that blends well from any number of sources without feeling overwhelmed.
You only need to choose them, one piece at a time. They may come from an antique shop, from other hotel liquidator etc. When buying furniture that has been used before ensure that you carefully scrutinize the quality.
Certain rooms and spaces will need more consideration. You need to pay special attention to rooms such as the lobby.
This is the room that will give your guest a first impression of your hotel. It should speak of the kind of hotel that you are running. If you want a cozy old-time cottage theme, then you need warmer deeper couch benches and seats that let the patron sink in deep.
If you are looking for a modern pristine look, then you look for sharp furniture in dark or very bright colors. Black and white have been used to bring about this kind of contrasting effect.
It is also important to consult with the furniture distributor or manufacturer.
Some furniture may not fit into certain areas of a hotel and prior information on the dimensions of these spaces will save you plenty of headaches later on. You may be surprised to find that the manufacturer may offer to make some custom pieces for these particular spaces.
You may also get some discounts if you buy enough furniture directly from a manufacturer rather than from a retailer.
The dining area is also of great importance. People go to hotels to eat and relax. Once you have the lobby and rooms furnished, you should turn your attention to the dining room.
Make sure that you bar is well stocked, well-lit and has comfortable and stylish bar stools. The dinner table should be stylish and make the guest feel great about dining at such a table. There should be enough space in between the tables for the waiters and waitresses to move about easily with food and drink without disturbing the guests.
Once these three main areas are well taken care of the rest of the furniture will fall into place and before you realize it you will have furnished your hotel fully.
