The lobby of a hotel or a community is one of the first things guests or homeowners see when they walk into the space. That being said, this is a great place to make a design statement. Whether it is a dimensional wall, vibrant accent colors or water features this will ultimately draw attention to the space and make guests want to return.
Seating is one of the most important aspect to any lobby. You will want to group your seating so that it makes conversational areas as well as leaving a pathway to get to necessary exits and elevators. Lobbies should have substantial lighting that may consist of natural light as well as layered lighting to create dimension. If you have an accent wall with an innovative treatment, you can use down lighting to really highlight and accentuate the accent wall.
Hotel lobbies can consist of various spaces for different functions. For example, lobbies can be used to either relax or have a business meeting. In this case, lobbies should have access to cell phone ports and tables to plug their laptop into. The impact of a well-designed lobby will make guests want to experience the most out of your hotel and will encourage them to return with friends and family.
