Previously, lobbies were considered waiting areas for guests to sit while they waited for someone or something. This isn’t the case anymore. Lobbies are now spaces where people socialize with each other, sit with a coffee and do their work for hours.
Given the fact that it’s more of a social hub now, a lobby should be spacious and comfortable. Not just tea tables or one centre table, but there should be multiple tables that can accommodate one, two or even five. The chairs should be comfortable enough for the guests to sit for hours without any inconvenience. The more a lobby is packed, the busier and happening the hotel appears, thus attracting new guests. The lighting should be proper and the ambience shouldn’t be congested. One great idea is to break the lobby into various seating zones, so that the guests have various options, rather than having to sit at the same place every time.
Lately, many hotels have recognized the potential of a good lobby and are racing towards making the experience worthwhile. We’re excited to see what 2019 holds for the hotel industry. Till then, we’ll be here helping our clients be their best when it comes to interior fitout and custom furniture.
