How To Furnish Your New Hotel With The Right Hotel Furniture

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Are you a new hotel owner searching for high quality hotel furniture to draw in hotel guests to your business? If yes, choosing hotel furniture can be an overwhelming task when you have no clue where to start.

There are so many rooms, lobbies and public spaces that you will need to furnish in your hotel. We are here to help you make the right choices for your hotel business and hotel guests with a few pointers on how to shop for hotel furniture.

One of the first steps you will need to do to successfully pick out quality hotel furniture is estimating the number of furniture sets and lobby furniture you will need for your hotel.

A great way to calculate an estimate is counting the number of rooms, sizes and the number of public spaces that you will need to furnish.

Once you have a calculated number, you can decide whether you want matching furniture or a few unique pieces of hotel furniture.

Make sure your hotel furniture selections will fit your room sizes and layouts prior to purchasing. Some hotel rooms may be oddly shaped spaces and will need hotel furniture that can properly occupy the space.

Read our previous blog post for examples of the right hotel furniture styles you can choose from to make your hotel more inviting and comfortable for hotel guests.

The Right Hotel Furniture: How to Make Your Hotel More Inviting and Comfortable For Hotel Guests

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

When in the hospitality industry, you need to consistently find ways to make your guests feel at home. You can make your guests feel at home by using the style and color of the furnishings to create a comfortable environment.

The right hotel furniture is furniture that adds elegance and improves the functionality of a hotel by enhancing the look, feel and setting of a hotel’s interior to impress visitors, as well.  You may choose to have Contemporary hotel furniture in the guest rooms and more traditional furniture in the common areas or dining rooms.  Whether a central them flows throughout or you have themes that change from the lobby to the dining room to the guest rooms of your hotel, the furnishings alone can provide guests a wonderful experience of comfort and pleasure.

Here are just a few ideas for hotel furniture styles for the guest rooms, dining rooms and the lobby areas of your hotel:

The Hotel Guest Room

A great style to have in your hotel Guest room is a nice cherry finish. Cherry is a rich color that is not too dark and not too light.  Most people are fond of cherry, thus it will be pleasing to the masses.  Cherry finished furniture is made from high-quality wood with a splendid cherry finish. It is a classic option that any guests would admire.

There are, of course, many other finishes, maple with black inlay or walnut with white inlay can provide a stunning look as well.  Part of the fun of having a project come together is choosing all of the finishes that complement one another and create the ultimate atmosphere.  Is your hotel room geared toward the business traveler, honeymooners or family vacationers?  You may choose to let the use of the room dictate how you approach its furnishings.  In addition to the bed style you should add stylish sofas, elegant tables and comfortable chairs to your hotel bedrooms. Furniture made of solid wood will last for years in hotel bedroom settings, while offering you a refined and luxurious interior. If you cater to families, you may want that furniture to be laminate for durability sake.

The Modern Hotel Dining Room

When you are purchasing hotel dining room furniture, you want furniture that is up to date and attractive. One great feature to have in a modern dining room is wooden bar stools for your hotel bar and restaurant area.  Though metal bar stools can provide an equally pleasing look and even more durability.

When picking dining room furniture you want the furniture to blend well with your hotel’s style and theme. For example, bar stools which have the same feel as the lobby area will create a nice flow.  However, you could have a dining area that has its own distinct theme so that your guests feel as if they are entering a different environment with its own mood and atmosphere.

As for dining room tables, the best quality and value are those made with high quality laminate if the tables will not be covered with table cloths.  Laminates have come a long way.  You can get them in many different colors and the finish can be quite attractive.  Some great dining table finishes are cherry, mahogany, dark mahogany, natural and walnut.  If the tables will be covered with linen, no need to spend the extra money on pretty tables when functional tables will do just as well.  The Linens will make the dining room and allow for a change of scene and atmosphere by changing the color instead of buying new tables.

Hotel Lobby Furniture

Every hotel lobby needs to have an inviting look for its guests because it is the all important 1st impression. Stylish hotel lobby furniture whether it is traditional or contemporary or transitional can create a different atmosphere for your hotel. It only takes a few elegant and comfortable sofas, lounge chairs, and ottomans to get the job done right. Use colors that exist in your hotel theme when picking lobby furniture to appropriately suit your hotel décor.

Modern Office Furniture: How To Use Traditional And Contemporary Style In Your Office Space

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

If your office interior decoration needs a layout and furniture upgrade, this article will provide you office furniture style tips and trends to help you transform ordinary office space into a creative and well-furnished office.

When arranging an office layout, you must consider how the office interior decoration and office furniture will represent your company’s attitudes and goals. You want to reflect the identity of your company in the style of your furniture. Having the right amount of furniture and an innovative style can demonstrate to clients and customers that your company is a professional place of business that provides highly quality services and products.

Here are some office furniture style tips you may want to consider to create and maintain your office appearance as a modern and professional workspace:

Wooden Office Furniture

When shopping for furniture, modern office furniture is a necessity. You do not want your office space to look outdated with heavy, wooden furniture. Go for solid, wooden office furniture to symbolize that your company has class, professionalism and quality services and products.

A must-have for a modern office space is a classic wooden desk with drawers and shelves. Wooden furniture offers a touch of grace to any office, and with the right desktops and shelves, you can improve the productivity and organization of your business. You can also improve the well being of your employees with the visual office facelift helping to improve the mood of your workers because of the office environment attractiveness.

Trends In The Office Furniture Industry

Before selecting long-term office furniture, it is recommended that you ask your staff their opinion on the blueprint of the office makeover. You should ask your employees what they think so you may add their personal touch to the workplace. When employees believe their opinions matter to you, they work more productively and more inclined to find their work environment satisfactory.

Another important aspect you need to keep in mind when upgrading your office space and furniture is how to keep your employees’ workspaces orderly.

Messy office spaces do not make employees look busy. Messy office spaces make employees look disorganized. Clients and potential customers will take their business elsewhere when they believe your business doesn’t function in an organized fashion. Tidy desks, shelves and cabinets will make your business appear highly organized, reliable and effective in services.

Use sleek, contemporary office furniture to give an impression of elegance and class to your business. Never allow your office space to look outdated. Be a business that creates an impression of consistently progressing towards the future with Edwards & Hill Office Furniture.
