For thousands of years, people have used marble to elevate their spaces. It is timeless but always in style. It is elegant and represents status, wealth, and good taste. Today, marble is used throughout the hospitality industry in creative ways. And while it represents great wealth, it is no longer specific to the upper class. While today’s marble countertops are more affordable, they deliver just as much or more luxury than the marble of bygone eras.
The White Carrara Marble countertop pictured in this bar setting from our Hospitality Gallery is exactly what you need to elevate any area of your hotel. Use it in your lobby bar to keep your guests, and their money, in your establishment rather than a watering hole down the street.
Carrara Marble is an iconic Italian marble that features shades of white and gray. It's a fascinating combination and can hold one's attention for hours. It's the type of premium surface that reveals a new pattern or another characteristic every time you return to it. The way it works with the white subway tile backsplash, white chairs, and other elements of this hotel bar create an enchanting and welcoming scene.
PORCELAIN FLOOR TILE
Porcelain floor tile is a wonderful choice for your hotel. Due to its extreme durability, it is ideal for high-traffic areas like hotel hallways, restaurants, and lobbies.
Take a look at the Antoni Gris Porcelain Wood Tile in this charming scene from our Hospitality Gallery. It delivers the sought-after look of authentic wood but without the headache of sealing and ongoing resealing. It costs much less and will far outlast the real thing. Its chic weathered gray color with detailed shading and graining is straight out of the dreams of even your most particular guest. It’s easy to install, scratch and water-resistant, and works well for floors, backsplashes, countertops, and accent walls.
If you’d rather capture the look of natural stone in a porcelain floor tile, check out this stunning Praia Carrara Porcelain Tile in this lobby setting. This marble look tile mimics elegant white marble down to the finest detail. Its delicate gray veining and matte finish make it an ideal selection for an unforgettable first impression.
Praia Carrara provides all the benefits of a durable porcelain tile without any of the upkeep of authentic stone. In addition to flooring, you can use it for shower surrounds, accent walls, countertops, and any space you’re looking to add high luxury. This particular tile is available in various sizes, from 2x2 to 12x24 to large format 24x48 tiles. For more inspiration, take a deep dive into our Hospitality Gallery.
LUXURY VINYL FLOORING
Luxury vinyl flooring is a leading choice for hotel owners, managers, and designers. Its ability to deliver the look of authentic stone or natural wood for a much lower price point is just part of its allure. Like many of the options we’ve covered today, luxury vinyl flooring is stain resistant and waterproof due to its non-porous nature. Often, it is installed with a multiple-layer underlayment that serves as a sound dampener. This is an excellent benefit for hotel owners since the last thing you want is sound traveling from one guest’s room to another.
This picture from our Hospitality Gallery reveals how even a smaller hotel guest room can be lavish and welcoming with luxury vinyl tile like these Katella Ash Luxury Vinyl Planks. The planks use understated gray tones and knots and graining to capture the look of real hardwood. The difference is these planks don’t require regular sealing, are easy to install, and stand up to the wear and tear of hotel life for decades.
When a guest visits your fine establishment for the first time, it may be your only chance to impress. With the right premium countertops and flooring, making a great first impression is a breeze. As previously mentioned, we encourage you to browse our Hospitality Gallery at your leisure to find the best fit for your hospitality needs.
