How to Choose Quality Hotel Lobby Furniture

When you’re shopping for hotel lobby furniture, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, check the construction of the piece. A good piece will be sturdy and durable. It should also have high-quality materials that won’t break down quickly or fall apart over time.

Secondly, look at how comfortable each item is before purchasing it. You want guests to sit down and relax while they wait for their rooms or check in with staff members so they can enjoy their stay even more! FinallyFinallyFinally…make sure everything fits into your budget!

Tips for Arranging Hotel Lobby Furniture

Create a focal point. The most important part of any lobby is the reception desk, which should be located in the center of the space and clearly visible from all angles.

Use furniture to define the space. In addition to creating a focal point with your reception desk, you’ll want to use other pieces of furniture (such as couches) to define different areas within your hotel lobby so that guests can easily find their way around without feeling overwhelmed by its size or layout.

Add accent pieces for visual interest. Accent pieces like coffee tables or chairs can help break up large expanses of flooring while adding some extra color into otherwise neutral spaces–and they’re also useful for providing extra seating when needed!

Create conversational areas where people can gather together comfortably while still being able to see what’s going on around them; this will encourage guests who may not know each other yet (or even those who do) into getting acquainted with one another during their stay at your establishment.

The Best Materials for Hotel Lobby Furniture

Leather. This material is popular for its durability, comfort and rich appearance.

Wood. It’s a natural material that can be stained or painted to match any decor you choose for your hotel lobby furniture.

Metal (steel). Steel is strong, durable and easy to clean–it’s also available in many finishes including chrome-plated brass, brushed nickel and black powder coat finishes so you can get the look you want without worrying about rusting over time!

Upholstery (leather). The softness of leather makes it an ideal choice for upholstering chairs or sofas in hotel lobbies because it adds warmth while still being comfortable enough for guests who may spend hours sitting there waiting on family members who are checking in or out of their rooms during busy periods like holidays like Christmas Day where people travel far distances just so they could spend time together with loved ones even though both parties might not live next door anymore due to changing circumstances such as divorce proceedings etcetera…

The hotel foyer is inevitably the first area guests see when walking into a hotel. First impressions count, and a hotel foyer or lobby needs to be inviting, stylish as well as practical, and functional.

The foyer is not only an area for guests to check in but is often also an important space for socialising and networking. Hotel lobbies are often large enough to accommodate a lot of people, and making the best use of space by choosing the right furniture will involve some careful planning and decision making.

Hotel foyer furniture needs to be comfortable whilst also being smart and functional. As the lobby is one of the busiest areas of the hotel, you’ll need to make sure you source furniture that can withstand heavy use.

Bourne Furniture has been supplying furniture to hotels all over the UK for many years, and we are happy to share some tips and suggestions to help you achieve the right look and find the right furniture for your hotel foyer.

Decide on a style for your hotel foyer

Before sourcing your furniture, it’s important to pinpoint the aesthetic you want to achieve. The overall look and feel of the foyer will need to complement the interior design style of the rest of the hotel and work well with the age and architecture of the building. Consider the overall atmosphere you want to create. Do you want a sleek and modern look, or a more cosy, traditional feel? Whatever style you choose, a hotel foyer will always need to be inviting. With careful planning and the right furniture, you can create a hotel foyer that perfectly reflects your brand and leaves a lasting impression on your guests.

Plan the layout of your hotel foyer

Study the space available in order to create the perfect layout for your furniture. You’ll want to make the best use of space, but do avoid overfilling the foyer area as guests will need to easily access the reception desk, lifts or stairs, often with luggage or children in tow.
The reception desk should be visible from the main entrance with space for hotel employees to be easily accessible to help greet your guests and be on hand for any queries.

Incorporating space for meetings or flexible work options will be really handy for hotel guests away on business. As a general rule, making the hotel foyer a usable space for all types of guests to utilise will help create a warm, inviting atmosphere.

Choose hotel furniture that’s comfortable and welcoming

Seating areas in a hotel foyer are a must, and choosing comfortable, welcoming furniture for your hotel lobby will make all the difference to how your guests feel about your hotel. Look for pieces you could imagine yourself sinking into to relax if away on holiday or for business. Pay attention to the fabrics and colours of the furniture and select items that will work together to create a cohesive and inviting space. You can also add bold statement pieces to give your foyer added wow factor to impress your guests.

Choose sturdy furniture that can handle a lot of use

The hotel lobby will see a lot of traffic, and the furniture will inevitably get a lot of use. The last thing you want is to choose furniture that will need replacing or mending before long, as this will be a costly mistake. By using a specialist hotel furniture supplier, they will be able to advise you on the best durable fabrics and finishes for heavy use. Opting for wipeable surfaces can help keep things clean and looking new.
