The hospitality industry depends on leisure time and disposable income—two resources that the average person regards with careful consideration. For that reason, creating a memorable customer experience is a must in order to both attract new visitors and keep regulars coming back. The furniture in your hotel rooms, lobby, and other community spaces can make or break your customer experience, so it’s best to choose wisely.
Fortunately, not every item in a hotel needs to be luxury hospitality furniture. Office furniture is a reliable, affordable, and long-lasting option for many parts of the hotel experience. We’ve compiled a list of office furniture ideas for the hospitality industry that will help you create an inviting environment for your guests.
Whether you own a restaurant, an office, or a hotel, comfortable chairs are essential pieces of furniture. A customer waiting in your lobby or reception area will be much more at ease if they can sit down and relax before they are attended to. If your business is on the small side, you might be able to get by with just a few guest chairs in the lobby. If you greet numerous guests every day, however, you might want to consider modular seating or sofas that can comfortably seat a few people at a time.
Reception areas aren’t the only spaces that need comfortable seating options. Hotel rooms need chairs and sofas as well, especially suites and king-sized rooms where multiple guests stay at once. We recommend checking out our variety of club chairs, which are extra comfortable and frequently have a matching love seat or sofa available.
Lastly, if your hotel rooms include desks or you have a business center in the building, consider purchasing desk chairs so your guests have a proper place to sit while they’re focusing on their work. Modern Office has all kinds of seating options that would make great hotel chairs for sale on our website.
Desks and Conference Tables
Speaking of desks, most hotel rooms should have some sort of surface where guests can write or work on things while they’re away from home. Typically, hotel room desks are only large enough for one person, so a height-adjustable desk is a great option.
If your hotel has a business center, investing in a larger work surface such as a multi-person workstation or a conference table is a good idea. We have a range of products that match this description, including conference table and chair sets that make furnishing your business center a breeze.
Restaurants and hotels frequently host events such as conferences, weddings, and private parties. These kinds of affairs can be great for your bottom line, but establishing your location as an appealing venue requires some up-front investment.
For instance, you’ll need chairs and tables in order to host large groups of people. Depending on the size of your space, storing this furniture when you’re not hosting an event could be tricky. If this rings true for you, take a look at the folding table and folding chair options on our site. These styles can be broken down to take up less space when they’re not in use. Plus, they can easily be made to look more formal with the help of a nice tablecloth or chair cover. We hope that these ideas come in handy when you’re planning your next furniture purchases for your hospitality business. The more comfortable your furniture is, the more likely you’ll be able to fill up your rooms and event spaces every season.
