30 Jul The Evolution of Furniture, Fixtures, and Equipment (FF&E)
FF&E, or furniture, fixtures, and equipment, refers to the movable furniture and other equipment not permanently affixed to the building. These items can include everything from desks and phones to beds and light fixtures in the hotel industry. Over time these items typically depreciate and will need to be replaced. As technology develops and people become accustomed to a certain level of comfort, hotels must invest in high-end FF&E to maintain their guests’ standards.
Why Furniture, fixtures, and equipment Matter
When choosing a hotel, almost every guest will first look at the fixtures and furniture installed in the hotel as a means of gauging the quality of the hotel’s service. Because FF&E continues to be one of the essential parts of the hospitality industry, it can make or break your hotel’s desirability, reputation, and ability to attract future guests.
When designing your hotel space, selecting and arranging the furniture and fixture features is the most important thing. The goal is to create an environment that provides a comfortable and inviting atmosphere that is also functional. Choosing lower quality FF&E significantly reduces the lifespan of the fixtures and diminishes the hotel’s overall value.
How to Select FF&E
Selecting FF&E for hotels is not the same as selecting home furniture. First, you need to thoroughly analyze how you want the space to look and which functionality you want to provide your guest in each specific area. To get the best use out of every space, you should hire a professional and dynamic hotel furniture installation company. Not only can they help you remove any old furnishings from the area, but they can also help you develop a design and theme for your rooms that suit the needs of your space without sacrificing functionality.
