Renovate to innovate: sustainability in social spaces

In Hospitality first impressions count, especially in lobbies, restaurants, gyms and bars where we are always on show. These are not only social spaces but a public notice to guests flaunting our standards and values.

How can the hospitality sector reduce its waste?

Our planet is struggling to cope with the sheer volume of waste we produce, and the amount is only growing year-on-year. In particular, the issue of food waste is particularly close to people’s hearts. It’s not only another avenue of waste to address, but it’s arguably the most, well, wasteful! With more people than ever heading food banks, there’s really no justification for food being thrown away uneaten.

Is upholstered furniture the key to improving guest experience?

We’ve noticed a trend recently, and it’s not a great trend, it’s the uncomfortable furniture that’s sweeping across bars and restaurants.

In today’s fast-paced world this is entirely by design. There’s only so long a person can sit on a metal stool making them perfect for busy spaces where fast turnover is key and are a godsend for being easy to clean and replace. But for more laid back spaces where customer experience is prized, they simply don’t work.
