The process for finding the ideal commercial carpeting for hotels shares much similarity to the one for office buildings, restaurants, cafes and casinos. Like many corporate locations, the need for durable materials to take on the extra foot traffic over residential areas results in longer-lasting carpeting in general.
However, hotel carpeting tends to focus more on design and colors. When there’s a clientele of vacationers, guests, and business travelers to impress, any boost to curb appeal is worth the investment. Make a well-informed decision on your hotel’s commercial carpeting to make guests feel welcome and relaxed, as well as make your business look more trustworthy and attractive.
Durability Where You Need It | Commercial Carpeting
Like many business locations, hotels have a variety of different “hotspots” for foot traffic. Carpets near pools or spas, for instance, need a degree of waterproofing. High traffic areas like hallways and lobbies could use some extra durability and weatherproofing.
Several specifications play into the durability of a carpet:
While commercial carpeting is typically built more durable than residential carpeting, there are still tiers of strength available. Invest more in areas needing high wear-resistance like reception lobbies; lower strength carpets might be enough in rooms and closets if you need to conserve your budget. In other words, balance the cost with longevity when it comes to deciding on internal flooring.
Finally, the length of the warranty provided by the manufacturer tends to reflect the resilience of the carpet. A 10-year warranty gives you more peace of mind than a 5-year one, for example.
Fitting Designs | Commercial Carpeting Toronto
Heathered colors are popular options for hotels and commercial spaces. Made with interwoven pieces of mixed colors, heathered commercial carpeting forms a shade of the two colors, which, while more expensive than regular carpets, more easily hides stains and scratches.
And don’t forget that carpets need to fit in with the rooms around them:
• Choose colors that complement the rest of the room. A library with dark wood grain furniture might be paired up with a similar color in the carpets.
• An extravagantly decorated room could have a simple design on the carpet to prevent an overtly flashy appearance, whereas a simple decorating job might need a complex carpet design to avoid a dull look.
That Extra Step
You may find custom fitting worth the extra cost, especially in popular rooms like reception desks where customers first get their impressions of your hotel.
And don’t be afraid to make a unique statement with your carpets. Your hotel’s identity is expressed partly through the colors of your flooring, so welcome your guests with a beautiful commercial carpet today.
