Did you know that Sydney was shortlisted to become the design capital of the world in 2020?
A lot of things happened that year, and Sydney ended up not receiving the award. But, Sydney and Australia as a whole are still at the forefront of interior design.
If you’re shopping for resort furniture, this is your opportunity to live up to Australia’s reputation as a design mecca. But, this isn’t the only thing you need to focus on. Besides great design, you also need to think about things like quantity, quality, durability, and more.
Furnishing a resort requires a fair amount of capital, so you want to make sure you get it right the first time around.
Keep reading to find out just what to look for when choosing resort and hotel furniture.
Commercial-Grade Construction and Materials
One of the first things to vet for when choosing hotel or resort furniture is commercial-grade materials and construction.
Yes, design is a critical factor, but you also have to make sure that the lines you choose will withstand continual use and wear and tear. Fast furniture has grown into a pressing issue all over the world, and the majority of standard furnishings available aren’t built to last more than a couple of years at most.
If your resort is booked out most months of the year, the furnishings are going to see a lot of traffic. What’s more, there isn’t much leeway for wear and signs of use in a resort setting.
If guests are faced with scratched furniture and headboards with grease marks from previous visitors, this won’t leave a favourable impression.
Speaking of grease marks, besides being hardwearing, you should make sure that you choose practical furniture that’s easy to clean.
The furniture you select shouldn’t just be hardwearing, it should also have a warranty to back this up.
Warranties are always an important thing to consider when buying appliances or furniture. However, they’re especially critical when it comes to resort furniture.
Why? Because buying at scale without comprehensive warranties can be a recipe for disaster.
Let’s say you purchase 150 beds and mattresses for your resort, and after a few months, 50 of the beds have broken slats. If you have a warranty for the beds, you can either get replacements sent or recoup the cost via a refund. If you don’t have a warranty, you’ll need to foot the bill for 50 new bedframes.
Wholesale Prices (And Quantities)
Luxury furnishings aren’t cheap, which is one reason why you need to look for wholesale prices on resort furniture. But wholesale prices aren’t the only thing to prioritize, you also need to ensure you can get wholesale quantities.
If you can’t get the right quantities, this can leave you in a design pickle and impact your brand continuity.
A Cohesive Design
Along with the right quantities, we’d also recommend you find a source that supplies most of the items you need to achieve a cohesive design. Most resort owners and managers don’t have time to hunt around high and low sourcing furniture, art, rugs, stools, accent chairs, etc.
Instead of wasting time trying to get everything you need in the right quantities from different places, we’d recommend you partner with a service that can furnish you with a wide range of cohesive furniture, at the right price and the right quantities.
Here at Resortium Concept, we supply resorts and hotels with everything they need to bring their interior design plans to life, at scale.
