You don’t think blackout curtains are important for your property? Think again! I’ll explain why.

Welcome to another edition of Hospitality Property School.

I am your instructor, Gerry MacPherson

Today’s short episode is designed to make you think.

As the pace of working life increases, it becomes all the more important that we get full and proper sleep whenever we can. This can be especially true for business travellers.

Not only are blackout curtains enjoying widespread popularity in hospitality properties but are becoming increasingly common in private homes and commercial buildings.

When thinking about blackout curtains for a hospitality property, quality control and professional installation is a must to avoid costly maintenance and unhappy customers.

.

So, why should you consider investing in blackout drapes and what you should look for?

Total blackout curtains for hospitality properties

One of the most important factors affecting how a guest feels about their stay in a property is the quality of sleep they’re able to get. Curtains that fail to effectively block light, either from the sun or from nearby street lights and other sources, can have a big impact on this. Cheap blackout curtains will never be up to the task since customized fitment is essential for complete control over the light entering a room.

Top-quality blackout curtain can therefore soon pay for themselves in the repeat visits they earn for your property. It’s simply more cost-effective to get this right first time than deal with the ongoing maintenance and dissatisfaction of a lower quality product.

Blackout curtains – built to last

Hospitality property guests aren’t always going to treat their rooms with the same care and attention that they would in their own homes. This means the fixtures and fittings need to be extremely robust to keep down costly maintenance and replacement costs.

Some options to look for include:

  • Track and roller systems that are fit to work perfectly for many cycles.

.

  • For properties looking for luxury options, motorised systems with remote control and automated blackout curtain tracks.

.

  • Technology such as Alexa that can open the curtains by voice command.

.

.

In conclusion

Hospitality properties that are considering blackout curtains, and you should, need to think about:

  • Cheap blackout curtains vs. more expensive quality blackout curtains

.

  • Ongoing maintenance cost and time

.

  • The dissatisfaction of a lower quality product.
