How to Select the Right Hospitality Furniture

Hospitality furniture design has evolved a lot over the years, and it is hugely linked to the greatness of the guests stay and experience. There are four main factors to take into consideration when selecting the right hospitality furniture; comfort, location, style and durability.

Comfort

If guests aren’t comfortable on the furniture they are sitting, sleeping or working on, it isn’t likely that they will return. It’s vital the seats or beds you choose aren’t too hard or soft, and have a good balance in terms of keeping an upright posture and the ability to sink into a comfy bed. If you provide desks for your guests, they need to have maximum room for comfort, as well as a relaxed office chair that keeps guests seated experience in mind.

Location

A guests experience will be hitting off right from the moment they step through the doors. You’re going to want to ensure there are seats available for those who wish to sit down as soon as they enter. Hospitality areas like hotels function as guest’s living rooms, waiting rooms, lounges, business centres and private areas. You can create each of these different zones by placing furniture in the right locations. For example, you could place a large, comforting sofa in the middle of the room for all to enjoy, or raised top barstools opposite the reception to allow people visibility and privacy.

Style

The style of the furniture you choose can add huge amounts of personality to a bare room. The amount of space you are working with is paramount, as you’ll need to ensure all bits of furniture work well with one another. If you’re working towards a certain style, for example a modern look or a vintage, tea room flair, you’ll need to guarantee all the furniture you choose reflects this. Whether this means golden, glass top tables or shabby chic chairs.

Durability

Perhaps one of the most important factors when choosing hospitality furniture, you’ll want to guarantee that the furniture you choose will last you as long as possible. Furniture must last stylistically, but also stand up to the huge amount of wear and tear it will endure. You can ensure the furniture you choose will stand the test of time by picking the right fabrics, colours, textures and grades. Try to understand the balance between durability and visuals. You shouldn’t need to detract from the overall style you are trying to achieve when picking furniture that is long-lasting.
