Whether prompted by the pandemic and its economic ramifications or not you may now be thinking of a remodel that will modernize and breathe new life into your hotel. While this could give your hotel a revitalizing boost in terms of bookings and revenue you will no doubt want to show some caution and not overspend.
The purpose of this article is to consider important factors that will allow you to achieve your refurbishment goals without draining your resources and breaking the bank.
Hire the right designer
When it comes to interior design, it is wise to hire a professional interior design company. There are many reasons for this. One of the most obvious is that a professional design company can help you to save money through the trade discount pricing that they receive.
In addition, an experienced interior designer will be able to guide you when it comes to the wise allocation of funds. To give a simple example, cutting costs on a sofa makes less sense than cutting costs on an item of furniture that will not have to stand up to as much wear and tear.
If it’s a certain look you are trying to achieve, your professional interior designer will show you how close you will be able to get to realizing that precise vision while keeping within your particular budget.
Be clear on the scope
Having a clear idea of the scope of your project before jumping in with both feet will allow you to budget a realistic amount and stick closely to that dollar figure. The amount will be dictated by several factors including your hotel’s type and location, the demographic of clients that you target, the type of finish, and the quality of materials that you want to use.
Design to last
Design to last depends mostly on sound decision-making. Cutting the wrong corners and trying to save money on certain materials should always be weighed against the overall lifecycle of the item in question. To state the obvious, buying an item that costs twice as much but lasts five times as long is a more prudent choice in the long run.
Many times choosing a low-cost alternative for certain items of furniture or fixtures and fittings will not detract from either the form or function. But to know precisely where and when to budget and when to spend a bit more requires experience and the eye of a professional.
A professional interior design company can help you to look beyond the immediate. For example, you may have a particular design trend in mind and this may be the right direction to go in. Your design company can help you weigh that strategy against opting for a more timeless aesthetic.
