Over the past few years, and with the economic crisis hitting the world, hotels, restaurants, resorts and others in the hospitality industry in the MENA region are trying to cut off on expenses. As a result, many of these businesses decide to allocate a small budget for the furniture, forcing them to consider purchasing less expensive collections. But what passes under the nose of these businesses is that buying cheap luxury outdoor furniture will actually cost them more. Here are the reasons why cheap furniture cost you more:
Waste of time and effort
The process of buying new outdoor furniture for your hotel, restaurant, beach or other hospitality services, is long and requires some detailed study before making the purchase. Each outdoor living collection must match the decoration and mood of the space. Therefore, the effort and time that will take you to cover your outdoor spaces should not be wasted by relying on cheap furniture. After all, outdoor furniture must be of high quality to resist the weather changes, and, usually, cheap furniture means low quality that, most probably, will not withstand rain, UV and dust for a long time. When the slightest flaw appears, you will have to redo the whole buying process. On the other hand, you will not have to worry about this with high quality garden furniture due to their high resistance to weather changes.
Negative image for the business
Cheap furniture feel differently from high quality furniture. What matters the most for guests in your hotel, restaurant or other hospitality services, is the comfort the furniture offers them while having lunch on your dining set, relaxing on your sunbed or tanning on your daybed. If the outdoor living set, for example, did not provide them the experience expected, it will discourage them from coming back and enjoying a satisfying experience in your hotel.
However, if the feeling projected by the outdoor furniture is the most important aspect, this does not lower the importance of the looks. A faded color, rusty or faded piece of furniture deprives the visitors from living the expected experience of relaxation and comfort. Therefore, bad feelings and looks create a negative image of your business, discouraging visitors from coming back.
More complicated maintenance
When outdoor furniture are not made with the appropriate materials, their maintenance will be very complicated. The outdoor use exposes them to dust that stains them, sun that weakens them and other issues that can give birth to bacteria. To avoid all these problems, complex maintenance procedure is regularly required. All your restaurant and hotel outdoor furniture must stay clean, non-toxic and bacterial free, to offer your visitors a satisfying experience. However, good quality patio furniture liberate you and your staff from exhausting effort to keep each and every piece of furniture clean and bacterial free just by the convenient materials.
In conclusion, outdoor furniture made from materials like Sunbrella, Viro or Batyline that resist UV, survive the rain and maintain their original forms, offer a pleasurable experience for the guests. Hotels and restaurants that use high quality outdoor furniture, have a better chance of attracting old and new visitors. High quality outdoor furniture may cost more, but they definitely have a better return on investment.
