Making Old Furniture New Again

3 Cost-Conscious Ways To Renovate Your Hotel

If you're not driving guests in the door, you aren't on the road to success. A key factor in increasing stays is making your property more appealing. A new updated look can help you accomplish this goal. If you're on a budget, don't worry. There are several cost-conscious, yet effective, updates you can do to improve the look of your property and boost traffic.

Update Common Areas

While a large part of staying at a hotel is enjoying a nice, comfortable room, comfort isn't all guests are looking for. Guests are also looking for entertainment and pampering. Consider updating the common spaces of your hotel to make them more functional and attractive.

For example, if you're a family friendly property, consider using one of the empty corners in your lobby for a gaming center. Updated furniture, a few screens and some game consoles is all you need. This addition may boost the amenities your property offers and make your hotel more appealing.

Add New Furniture

One of the most dramatic ways to improve the look of your property is to update the furniture. Few things can make a hotel look as worn and aged as old, outdated furniture. Simply upgrading to more modern pieces can make your property look fresher and newer.

If you're looking to appeal to a trendier crowd, stick with pieces that are more on the minimalist side, with clean, sleek lines. For a posher appeal, look for plush surfaces with extra accents like tufting and trim detailing. Even if you're unable to commit to all new pieces in every room. Updating focal points, like the bed and headboard, can also offer a similar benefit.

Install New Fixtures

If you have a very limited budget or are on a time clock, consider updating the fixtures in the room, including the electrical and plumbing fixtures. In the room, new lamps and lights can brighten the space and make it look cleaner and more sophisticated. The same is true in the bathroom.

For example, if you have traditional, three-piece fixtures installed, on the sinks, consider upgrading to a single piece design for a modern look. In the shower, you could upgrade to a wider, rain shower like showerhead design.  

There are many ways in which you can upgrade the look of your hotel without blowing your budget for the rest of the year. Be creative and gear all your upgrades towards your targeted demographic for the best chance of success. For more information, talk to a professional like Contract Furniture Solutions.
