In the hospitality industry, it’s crucial to maintain a steady stream of new reservations. Because of the high costs associated with running a hotel, high vacancy rates can cause your business to bleed money with each passing day. So how can you increase reservations when they start to decline?
In order to turn things around, take some tips from other hotels across the world, many of which are investing in the comfort and decor of their guest rooms. Let’s take a look at a few ways to revamp your hotel’s guest rooms easily and inexpensively.
Walls Donned in Fabric
A really trendy way to spice up the walls of a room is by covering the walls with fabric rather than the traditional paint and wallpaper. Head to your local fabric store and pick out some funky or simple fabrics that you think would go best with your hotel’s vibe. Upholster the walls to create a cozy and warm environment that simply can’t be achieved with a new paint job. It makes the room look a lot more luxurious and won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
Spice Up your Furniture
Every hotel owner is already familiar with the concept of wholesale furniture. Wholesale furniture is a great way to acquire large amounts of furniture at a really inexpensive price. And if you want all the rooms to share a similar decor, then wholesale furniture can offer you a bulk amount of identical Adirondack chairs, commercial sofa beds, commercial sleep chairs, and commercial outdoor furniture. Typically, this furniture, like the Adirondack chairs, can be pretty plain, so take pieces of sheepskin and lay them over your Adirondack chairs or take some paint and splatter some color onto your furniture. There are so many unique touches you can add to your rooms using your already existing furniture.
Add Class and Character to the Bathrooms
One of the most boring parts of a hotel room is the bathroom, or at least it can be. The typical hotel bathroom features the same style of fixtures, wallpaper, and color scheme as countless other hotel bathrooms. You have your standard shower, your standard toilet, and your standard double sink vanity. Break the monotony by adding some classy touches throughout the room. For instance, instead of a plain ceiling light, hang a chandelier. Likewise, adding some flowers and art to the bathroom wall will make it feel more like a guest’s home instead of just another uninspired hotel bathroom. People will remember these simple touches and will come back time and time again.
Owning a hotel can be a lot of work, but it’s extremely important that you do whatever can be done to keep bringing guests in. Take a look at your guest rooms and see what you can do to improve them. If you’re looking for some ideas, take a look at the suggestions above!
