Here are three interior design tips to help your bed and breakfast stand out online and in person.

The busy season for tourism is in full swing, but that doesn’t mean we can’t go over some interior design tips for bed and breakfast owners! Interior design is one of the most critical aspects of owning a bed and breakfast. As more and more people are booking accommodations online, expectations for online listings have skyrocketed.

As a result, the interior of your bed and breakfast has to serve double duty: to entice prospective guests in pictures posted online and to welcome and satisfy the needs of guests in person.

Micro-Space: The Hotel of the Future

Monday, November 17th, 2014

Micro-Space

As major cities across the nation continue to grow and evolve, space is becoming harder to come across. Because of the lack of space, many industries are attempting to find new ways to fit in throughout our nation’s major cities. Because of this, two furniture manufactures have come together to create a line of hotel furniture that will work within a micro-space setting. Think Fabricate has recently joined forces with Resource Furniture to create a three piece furniture line that could be used in a micro-space.

Kinetic, the new furniture line, includes only a credenza, coffee table, and wall cabinet.  Kinetic was created to fit within Hotel Resource. This hotel was developed by Resource Furniture to show how hotel rooms can include only a few simple pieces without losing their comfortable and luxurious atmosphere. The rooms within the Hotel Resource are only 240 square feet, but can still be enjoyed by guests. Each piece of furniture used in the room holds multiple uses to eliminate the need for extra pieces of furniture.

The credenza was developed to include numerous drawers for storage as well as a small refrigerator. The coffee table was developed to match a sofa Resource had already developed. The coffee table can be lifted to form a desk, while also including an additional workstation that can be folded out if needed. The wall cabinet is probably the most efficient of the three pieces. The cabinet includes a mirror, storage space, bar, iron, and espresso machine. These functions are not only easily accessible for guests, but also easily hidden. The pair of companies is looking forward to creating more functional pieces of furniture to be used in micro-spaces.

Hotel Room Interiors: Why So Important?

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

Hotel FurnitureWhen people stay at a hotel, most admit to having a bit of anxiety before they first open their room door. What are they about to walk into? For some travelers and vacationers, their trip begins and ends with their hotel room. Their hotel room can set the tone for their entire trip, and everyone wants to have a nice trip. Because of this, the rooms within your hotel should be decorated and include furniture that are welcoming, inviting, and comforting.

  1. Rest Up- Ultimately, a hotel room is where your guest will get their sleep. Grumpy guests are typically a result of a terrible night’s rest. Taking the time to choose comfortable beds and sleep sofas will lead to happy guests and lots of logs being sawed.
  2. Secure Feeling- Rooms that are tidy and welcoming help your guests feel safe in their surroundings. Rooms that have unkempt and tarnished furniture could cause your guests anxiety and fear during their stay.
  3. Comfort is Key- Along with the bed; you want sofas and chairs to be comfortable as well in your hotel rooms. You may think the bed is the only piece of furniture that matters, but one time sitting on a lumpy chair could ruin a guest’s experience. Comfort throughout the entire stay will secure a positive review from your guests.
  4. High Reputation- The easiest way for news to spread is through word of mouth. If a guest is impressed with the room they have recently stayed in, chances are they will brag about their stay as soon as someone gives them the chance. On the same note, if a guest was ever displeased or amused by the interior of their room, they will not hesitate to share. High quality furniture and modern design will ensure a positive and high reputation for your hotel.

Think about the direction you want to take your hotel in. Consider a theme or overall feel you want your hotel to have and stick with it, keeping the above points in mind.

How to increase customer satisfaction with hospitality furniture

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

Hair Salon Furniture

Do you operate your very own hair salon? There’s a way you can easily increase your customer satisfaction and yield more sales.

No, it’s not just about your quality of service. You can retain customers and generate more business leads by providing utmost customer care.

You can start to accomplish high quality customer care with exceptional hospitality furniture.

Hair Salons are notoriously known for long waits. You want your customers to be as comfortable as possible in your lounging area as well as the styling chair.

Assuring comfort is a sure way to create economic stability for your business.

Salon referrals come predominately from word of mouth. If your salon develops a good reputation for quality customer service, more business opportunities will come your way as you improve your relationships with customers.

There are three key ways hospitality furniture can increase your overall customer satisfaction and business lead generation:

-Ergonomic furniture makes customers feel special, valuable when they do business with your company.

-Comfortable seating helps clients wait patiently on days you’re in high demand.

-Good hospitality can make customers more open about client needs and you can rest assured you will effectively address those needs.

Bottom line: If you want to run a successful salon enterprise, you need to address your interior design aesthetics.

The right salon furniture will portray your salon as the best salon for the specific services you offer. The Salon as a whole will give off a sophisticated, clean, elegant aura of luxury that’s irresistible to clients.

The following hospitality furniture items will help you increase your Salon customer satisfaction instantly:

  • Ergonomic styling chairs. It’s essential that your salon offers comfortable styling chairs because that’s where your clients will spend the majority of their time. As a stylist, you should purchase styling chairs that are easy to operate and easily adjustable to meet different customer needs. Keep three words in mind while shopping for styling chairs: Comfortable. Sturdy. Functional.

  • Reclining chairs for shampoo bowls. This will prevent your clients from straining their necks as you shampoo and rinse their hair.

  • Manicure tables. Offering manicures at your hair salon is a quick and easy way to make extra cash. Be sure to purchase both mobile and fixed manicure tables. Mobile manicure tables are great for a compact salon as the tables can be folded and stored easily.

  • Pedicure chairs. These are in high demand for salon clients, especially the ones that feature magazine racks and cup holders. If you want to enhance a modern look of your salon, invest in massage chairs that clients can enjoy as you give them pedicures.

Remember, clients believe in your ability to make them beautiful based on the aesthetics of your beauty equipment and hospitality furnishing.

The interior design of your salon will always reflect the quality of service your salon has to offer.

Bed And Breakfast Inns: What are the Best Hospitality Furniture Items?

Monday, June 3rd, 2013

Starting a prosperous Bed & Breakfast business is never easy but with the right interior design and amenities, you can offer guests everything they want and more.

Most guests decide to stay and return to bed & breakfast inns based on appearance and the “at home” feeling.

It is crucial to your business success to give guests a good first impression so that they will make reservations time and time again.

Edwards & Hill Office Furniture is here to design a warm and inviting bed & breakfast for you.

The walls and hospitality furniture should be warm colors.

Open space layouts should be avoided to give guests a reason to explore your bed & breakfast in and out. You can accomplish this feel of exploration with captivating wall paintings, luxurious lounging areas and vibrant drapes/curtains.

These elements will give the bed & breakfast a soft feel that helps guests feel right at home. More importantly choosing a theme for your bed & breakfast will help you to create a better flow with the design and hospitality furniture pieces.

Ideally, guests want bed & breakfast inns to feel like home. The bed & breakfast inn should be known as a quiet retreat for guests.

Here are great hospitality furniture items you can purchase for your bed & breakfast inn:

-Victorian Style Furniture

-Cottage Style Furniture

-Wicker Chairs/ Seating for porches and bedroom balconies

-Victorian Style Dining Chairs

-Four Poster Beds

-Bedside lamps

What should be inside the guest rooms?

The guest rooms should be furnished with antique or classic furniture – beds, dressers, desks and chairs should have a timeless feel rather than a trendy feel.

Remember, bed & breakfast designs are all about maintaining visual balance that never goes out of style.

For the bedding, place accent pillows on top of crisp, clean linens. The better sleep your guests enjoy at your bed & breakfast, the more memorable and reputable your inn will become.

There should be absolutely no clutter in the guest rooms. Bedside tables are a must for de-cluttering and give guests the impression of having a spacious guest room. Ergonomic seating is also a must for guests to lounge in the comfort of their private rooms.

Warm. Inviting. Thoughtful.

Interior Design: Designing Aesthetically Pleasing Resort Rooms

Monday, April 29th, 2013

The busiest vacation season of the year is approaching. As a hotel owner or resort manager, you need to provide guests the utmost comfort and excellent customer support services to keep them coming back year after year.

How should you decorate a resort bedroom or hotel room?

The décor of the resort bedroom or hotel room will be based on the necessities, amenities, visual appeal and comfort guests identify with an excellent lodging experience.

You should begin designing quality resort bedrooms or hotel rooms with colors and fabrics that reflect the resort theme or hotel theme.

The best décor designs are the ones that provide guests with customized furnishings and accessories that meet the needs of both limited and extended vacation stays.

During this vacation season, vacationers will be traveling predominately to beach resorts. The best beach resort room designs are the ones that provide guests with plenty of sunlight light with an option of shade such as roll up screens.

In the resort bedroom, guests are focused on the decorative embellishments featured in the room.

Prior to entering the resort bedroom/ hotel room, the hotel or resort should provide vacationers comfortable furnishing at the lobbies and dining areas. The facility should also feature adequate technology equipment and gym equipment.

During spring and summer seasons, vacationers prefer wicker furniture, floral cushions and light color carpeting.

Traditional dressers are perfectly fine to use for beach resort bedrooms. Shelving units are also in popular demand.

Most vacationers prefer large bedrooms with an attached private space area such as a patio for relaxing.

Here are standard furniture items and accessories resort rooms should include:

 

  • Bedding

  • Bedroom furniture

  • Island Style Ergonomic Chairs

  • Outdoor Furniture such as sofas

Bottom line: make the resort bedroom or hotel room the home away from home vacationers of all ages can appreciate.
