If you’re in the hospitality service, you know that you have to hook your customer from the moment they pull up to your establishment. And once they step through that front door, they need to feel like home. A full-service home with a wait staff ready to serve your guests 24 hours a day, of course.
Mix luxury and comfort in your hotel lobby
Your lobby is the first impression that your guests have of your hotel. You want your lobby to say “make yourself at home while we cater to your every need.” A hardwood floor can say both of those things. A hardwood floor can be warm and comforting to your guests. There is something familiar about wood flooring that can help put your guests at ease. But great design and craftsmanship can help you create parquet floors that are both simple, elegant, but sophisticated and luxurious at the same time.
Consider function and foot traffic
You also need to think about function, as well as style. Hopefully, your lobby will be filled with people at all times. You need to account for heavy foot traffic. Unless you can somehow get your guests to take off their shoes at the door – perhaps some valet parking and shoe-drop combo – you’re going to see every kind and size of shoe run, skip, and jump across your lobby floors.
Depending on the style of your hotel, you can work with your hardwood flooring designer to help you find the right wood to match the style or theme of your hotel or hospitality. The rest of your decor, the lighting, the architecture, and colors of your hotel will also play a factor in the types of flooring that will suit your establishment.
