Three Types Of Furniture That Can Make Or Break A Resort Space
As the weather warms up, more and more people will be making vacation plans. For a lot of people, these plans will include resort stays. Resorts have the advantage of offering comfortable amenities to guests, often close to exciting tourist destinations, without sacrificing space and comfort. Families in particular often prefer resorts because there is more space and optional fun available for kids. The problem that can come up for resort owners is that of competition. There are so many options available for people looking to stay in resorts that a few seemingly minor details can make or break a person’s decision to choose one resort over the other. People often decide on a location first — but they choose a specific resort in part because of the creature comforts it can offer. Things like resort furniture can really make a difference to potential guests. Below, we’ll look into some of the different types of resort and hotel furniture that can add some extra touches to people’s vacations.
1. Commercial Sofa Beds
For contemporary resort and hotel owners and managers, it can be difficult to decide whether or not to invest in things like commercial sofa beds. They don’t always seem entirely necessary — why add a commercial sofa bed when people already have beds available? For that matter, can’t guests simply utilize a normal sofa in place of a bed? In actuality, most guests appreciate a commercial sofa bed far more than a typical sofa. They see the value in a sofa that actually expands, as it actually adds comfort to the sleeping experience. For that matter, thrift parents with younger children can often have two kids sleep in one bed, which makes the addition of a sofa bed versus a regular sofa even more advantageous. Sofa beds are convenient and comfortable, and can be easily tucked away during the day. It’s a simple investment that effectively adds another bedroom to a typical living space.
2. Adirondack Chairs
Adirondack chairs have long been considered a classic feature of commercial rental property furniture. In fact, they’ve been around for a lot longer than many people realize — with the first prototype of an Adirondack chair being created by Thomas Lee in 1903. With the American demand for outdoor furniture grills expected to rise by 3.7% annually to $9.1 billion by 2019, the demand for Adirondack chairs won’t drop anytime soon. The benefit of Adirondack chairs is that they not only provide guests with a place to relax — they also have a pleasing aesthetic and add a sense of style to a resort property. In terms of the quality and appearance of a space, Adirondack chairs add a lot and are more than worth the relatively inexpensive investment.
3. Motion Chairs
The term “motion chair” really refers to an umbrella category, covering everything from gliders to recliners, and even swivel rockers. These are considered key to relaxing on a hot day, and will not only be seen as a perk by resort guests, but really a necessity. This is particularly true for resorts that are in tropical or beachside areas. In fact, in conjunction with Adirondack chairs a glider or a swivel rocker can create a tranquil and fun atmosphere without many other additions. It may also be a good idea to add a hammock to the mix. Some people even like to take naps outside in hammocks and gliders — so adding them to the mix could be considered a finishing touch to a lovely outdoor scene.
Ultimately, the decorating of a resort is up to the owners and managers. And while you might be tempted to place your personal stamp on a resort — which isn’t necessarily a bad thing — it’s crucial to remember what your guests want first. You can have a lovely resort space without spending overmuch, and for that matter without sacrificing a sense of style. But furniture is indeed key.
