Now that we're easing out of lockdown travel is back on the cards, and hotels are reopening their doors with a revamped image thanks to Premium collections by PORCELANOSA Group.
Creating sophisticated and comfortable spaces in hotels that give customers peace of mind is one of the keys to creating a memorable image in the long term and establishing loyal relationships with tourists. The state of emergency is now over, and with it restrictions on tourism have been lifted. The finest hotels have invested this time wisely, giving shared spaces (lobbies, receptions and dining areas) a new look whilst adding improved health and safety and durability, and a design capable of giving guests a truly sensory experience.
Next we'll look at one of the most outstanding spaces created for the hospitality sector by PORCELANOSA Group. The personality and endless detailing behind this minimalist reception make it a trend-setting source of inspiration for hotels making their return to the world of hospitality.
Large format HIGHKER porcelain tiles (120 cm x 120 cm) in Karachi Acero were chosen for the reception's flooring. Grey and white veins intertwine, achieving a flawless finish brimming with details, making the stone-look, tobacco-coloured material perfect for hotels looking to strike a balance between comfort and prestige.
Added to its aesthetic properties, the Karachi collection lends spaces visual continuity, whilst also providing excellent resistance against high traffic and the type of damage caused by falling objects, blows and scratches, so common in areas where suitcases flow freely.
In the hotel lobby Devon Bone, a ceramic wood tile in 29.4 cm x 180 cm format by PAR-KER™ characterised by its unique whitewash effect, brings warmth and luminosity and enhances this space.
Given that reception desks are one of a hotel's most heavily used areas, PORCELANOSA Group recommends the use of sterile materials to guarantee cleanliness and hygiene to customers, 24/7. This was the rationale behind choosing XTONE Liem Dark Nature 154 cm x 328 cm, a mineral compact that prevents the proliferation of fungi and bacteria, with a tailored design perfectly suited to new hygiene requirements that demand maximum precaution.
The ambience is set off beautifully with a mural of golden diamonds, adding artistic flair to the space thanks to the Pro-Part Gold 12.5 mm profile by Butech.
