How To Give Your Hotel A Razor-Sharp Stone Aesthetic
The most iconic hotels all have one thing in common: their magnificent stone lobbies, spas, stairways and rooms.
But it’s not just the classic marble that can give your hotel that luxurious edge you have been seeking. Our stone here at RC Coppin comes in various colours and styles, so you can find the right material for you and your business.
Here, we cover four areas of your hotel, and which stone features can enhance them.
Lobbies and hallways
First impressions do matter. The lobby is the initial point of contact for customers, so it’s essential you create a welcoming and indulgent atmosphere as soon as they walk through the door.
There is nothing like natural stone to give your lobby a wow factor. Take The Savoy, for example – they pride themselves on a marble finish throughout their entrance. However, the floor is not the only thing natural stone can be used for.
Why not include a granite water feature, or marble benches for waiting guests to sit down and relax after their long journey? Marble plant pots and unique statues throughout your hallways and landings will further transform your hotel.
Dining rooms and bars
Fine dining is on the top of everyone’s list when searching for a luxury hotel. Make sure you live up to their expectations by adding marble and granite tables, benches and vases throughout your dining room.
By replacing the counters and surfaces in your bar with natural stone too, you’ll be able to protect your worktops with materials which are both durable and aesthetically pleasing.
After installation, let your surfaces reflect the luxurious atmosphere you have created. Lining mirror-like surfaces across your social area will ensure it can be felt from all angles.
Pools and spas
Whether your guests are coming for business or pleasure, you want them to feel relaxed within your hotel. Having a spa or pool will allow them to unwind after a long day.
Using stone can improve cleanliness throughout your pampering station. However, stones such as textured Lapitec porcelain, could be the better choice for more damp spaces.
Onyx is a durable and partially translucent material which will light up any space. By placing light underneath the surface, you can create a bright, spacious-looking room. This is ideal for spas and pools where there are usually no windows. It can also be hand-sculpted to specific sizes and shapes.
Guest rooms and bathrooms
Create a room fit for a king by incorporating marble coffee tables, flooring or fireplaces.
Alternatively, try porcelain. Although not a natural stone, it can give you the same luxurious effect, but with added durability and resistance.
Laminam, for example, is ideal for en-suite bathrooms. Its easy-to-clean surface, along with its resistance to mould, mildew and even fire, will keep your guests safe whilst retaining an ornate feel.
Whether you are looking to upscale your entire hotel or create a durable yet beautiful-looking bathroom, lobby or bar, RC Coppin are the perfect partner. Get in touch today and we’ll find the right stone for your project.
