Hospitality Industry: 6 Painting Tips To Keep In Mind

Painting Tips To Keep In Mind

For any hotel to succeed in the ever-competitive hospitality industry, a vibrant and appealing interior is the most important prerequisite. Your hotel may be a fine place, located conveniently, and surrounded by eye-catching sights, but with dull and uninspiring walls, all of this will not amount to much.
Both the exterior and the interior must be appealing to the eye of visitors and guests to make your hotel profitable. Here are six painting tips to keep in mind when painting/repainting your hotel.

#1 Determine the Extent of the Painting Project

Your hotel will need some touch-ups, from time to time but full repaints are never required so frequently.
Do consider what it is that you need to do at the moment. You can decide when it’s time for a full repaint by considering several factors. For instance, when was the last time you had a paint project done? You should also check out the state of the previous paint coat. Determine if the deterioration is localized or spreading throughout.
In most of the situations, a simple touch-up is all that is needed, however, if you feel like your hotel requires complete repainting, you can’t delay things.

#2 Do Regular Repaints

After every couple of years, ideally after three, but no later than five, you should fully repaint your hotel. Regular touch-ups can only do so much, the color will fade off after some time and lose its appeal. That’s when you’ll have to call over commercial painters and get started with the repainting.
Of course, you’ll have to proceed with a strategy if you don’t want to disturb any of the guests.

#3 Areas Frequented By Guests Need Special Attention

Your guests will each only see their rooms.
Thus if a couple of rooms are empty, and not likely to be used for a while, you can worry about them later and move onto the more pressing matter: the hallways.
The hallways and the lounge are two areas where you’ll get a lot of guests. These areas are also at maximum risk of being nicked or damaged otherwise. Any imperfection here will reflect poorly on your hotel, thus be sure to repaint these areas more frequently and keep them in top shape.
Once you’ve handled the more urgent mess, you can move from room to room with any touch-ups or complete painting.

#4 Your Paint Coat Should Stand the Test of Time

You should use paints that stay on for long, can be cleaned, and don’t get tarnished easily. High-quality paints are comparatively pricier, but they do reward one infinitely more. Thus a slightly bigger investment for something long-term doesn’t seem all that bad.

#5 Don’t Ignore the Exterior

You know how they say: “never judge a book by its cover,” forget it. Your hotel’s outward appearance is just as important as the way it looks from the inside. Never ignore the exterior elements because they may make or break your deal with guests.
Make sure that your hotel looks visually stunning and welcoming.
Try to play with shades in a manner that makes your building stand out and yet be completely in sync with the surroundings.

#6 Make Sure That Your Guests Are Not Disturbed

There are no off-days or down-times in the hospitality business. And guests won’t be all that pleased with painters busy doing their work in the hallway when they have to be headed somewhere. The risk of getting wet paint stains on their luggage is also very repulsive.
Thus, your strategy should be compatible with the behavior and expectations of the guests.
Be stealthy, time your schedule perfectly, and be sure that you don’t cause any disturbances.
This concludes our tips for hotel management officials who seek painting services for their building.

In fact, unlike stucco, EIFS is actually a multi-layered system that includes insulation board, base coat and finish coat. It’s a combination that provides a classic look with modern advantages.
