Keep reading to learn how to buy hotel furniture that will ‘wow’ your guests every time.

Where Do Hotels Purchase Furniture?

An interior designer working on a single room has the option of walking into a furniture store and picking any piece they like. Because of the size and scope of hotel properties, hotel owners need to adopt a different approach.

Rather than paying retail prices for individual pieces, hotel owners shop wholesale with leading manufacturers. This allows hotels to purchase furniture that’s not only more affordable but will also offer the best guest experience.

Making a furniture purchase wholesale ensures brand continuity in every room and every property. It also enables owners to offer the best-quality furnishings that will make guests feel like they’re at their ‘home away from home.’ After all, a good night’s sleep is one of the most important factors for the guest experience.

How to Buy Hotel Furniture

Wholesale furniture purchase is clearly the way to go, but where do you start?

The first thing to look for is a company with a proven track record of pairing hotel owners with the leading manufacturers and craftsmen. Rather than a “one size fits all” approach, the company should be able to procure furniture, fixtures, and equipment to suit any design concept. Take a look at their recent projects to get an idea of the manufacturers they partner with.

Next, consider a company that does more than just offer furniture recommendations. The best companies will help you manage every aspect of your project, from the initial design concept through to completion. This is especially important if you’re refurbishing or rebranding an existing property.

Finally, don’t forget to read the fine print. For example, when will your furniture be delivered — and can they guarantee the delivery date? Since hotel rooms get a lot of wear and tear, what kind of warranty comes with your furniture purchase?

Make sure you know the answers to these questions before you move forward with the purchasing process.
