After a challenging year, there appears to be some light at the end of the lockdown tunnel. Everyone is waiting for the world to open back up again, events are tentatively being pencilled into diaries and there is a general feeling of hope in the air. With this sense of cautious optimism comes plans of road trips, weekend breaks and likely some much-needed TLC.
This makes it the ideal time for the hospitality industry to offer guests a unique, enjoyable hotel experience – and that often means them soaking up luxury and pampering themselves. Schlüter-Systems can offer some simple ways to elevate a hotel bathroom using a few of its expert products. Looking at the space available and working out what features could enhance it is a great place to start; whether these changes can be made behind the tiles for subtle additions or on the surface to instantly draw the eye.
Creating shower niches provide stylish integrated shelving while also forming a focal point for the bathroom. They can be tiled in-line with the rest of the room for a minimalist look, or make an impact with the use of accent tiles. Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD-N is a range of prefabricated niches for tile and stone, with perfect waterproofing thanks to their Schlüter-KERDI coating, which can be easily integrated into the wall surface.
Why not take your niche to the next level by adding a lighting element to it? Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD-NLT includes LED lights which can create function and ambiance whilst offering helpful storage space.
A logical step towards giving any hotel bathroom the wow factor is to use beautiful, well-made tiles. Whether they are mosaic style for a striking look or something more neutral, they can offer a sense of extravagance whatever the size of the bathroom.
Schlüter®-TRENDLINE finishing profiles are available in a variety of different colours and textures, giving you full flexibility to complement the chosen tile effortlessly. This can be achieved by offsetting the colour to make a statement or matching the colour of your profile to the tile which can create the illusion of more space.
Not only will they help in creating the desired feel of the bathroom, but the Schlüter-TRENDLINE profiles also work to protect the tiles due to their durable material, ensuring the serene bathroom experience will be long lasting.
It goes without saying that a much-loved highlight of staying in a hotel, and an aspect that is sorely missed currently, is underfloor heating in the bathroom. This is especially appreciated when guests have relaxed with a nice hot bath or shower after a busy day.
Ideal for renovation projects thanks to its uncoupling and crack-bridging properties, Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT-E is an integrated electric solution for the heating and protection of tile and stone coverings. Providing quick warm-up times and easy installation, it has been designed to raise the temperature of the surface rather than the room which is why it is well suited to a bathroom.
These are just a few ways to refresh a bathroom with the focus on making guests feel welcomed and pampered. After all, creating a calming environment for them to relax is needed now more than ever. When using Schlüter products, you can be sure that the wellness oasis you create can be enjoyed for years to come.
