Constant high-traffic in hotels and restaurants require durable solutions

Hospitality facilities are meant to provide for the comfort, enjoyment and well-being of guests. Hospitality spaces are in constant use and experience high foot traffic and potential wear and tear, so the paints and coatings need to be durable and easy to clean. It is also important to choose low VOC paints to ensure an environment with good indoor air quality for guests and staff.

Depending on the size of the place, whether it is a big hotel resort or an intimate restaurant, there are a lot of different kinds of spaces that require specific solutions for surfaces. For instance, in restaurant areas that customers use like entrance spaces, dining halls and corridors need a different coating from restaurant’s kitchen or staff’s office spaces. Hotels on the other hand might have a wide range of spaces from lounge areas to guest rooms, conference rooms and restaurants within the hotel.

In hospitality facilities paints and coatings for walls and ceilings should be durable and easily cleanable to withstand the heavy use and potential stains that are common in hospitality environments. In some spaces it might be needed to opt for products with anti-microbial properties. Tikkurila Ässä 3 is an excellent option for corridors, halls and bathrooms, where additional durability is needed. For a hotel room walls, choose for example Tikkurila Harmony that creates a beautiful effect of velvet on the wall and gives protection from finger marks.

For walls and ceilings in restaurants, Tikkurila Ässä 7 and Luja 7 are great options.

Floor coating solutions for hospitality

High foot traffic, frequent cleaning and moving heavy items like luggage or loading carts can wear out the floors quickly in hospitality environments. Floor coating solutions need to endure tough conditions. Tikkurila Cozy Floor system is meant for floors subject to heavy foot traffic and it also helps with the acoustics. 

For floors subject to moderate stress like office spaces or guest rooms, a great option is the Tikkurila Temafloor 500M system. In restaurants, Tikkurila Fontedur FL Matt lacquer can be used to create unique design floors that are easy to keep clean.

Special areas in hotels and restaurants

In hospitality facilities, especially in hotels and other accommodation buildings, there might be special areas like gym spaces, saunas or even a whole spa section. Paints and coatings in these areas need to be durable and resistant to water and mould. It is also important to choose products for floors that provide slip resistance to prevent accidents.

Tikkurila Supi line offers perfect products for saunas: for instance, transparent Supi Saunavaha maintains the natural colour of the wood and Supi Saunasuoja provides a dirt- and water-repellent surface for the walls and ceilings.

Other spaces

Hospitality facilities – both hotels and restaurants – also have storage spaces, waste rooms, and parking spaces. These spaces face heavy mechanical and chemical stress and require an enduring coating or screed.

For floors Tikkurila Temafloor traffic offers dependable, durable protection for car parks with concrete flooring. Tikkurila epoxy based Temafloor 3000 screed, as well as polyurethane-based systems Temafloor 6 and Temafloor Traffic, can be used in car parks.

Our solutions for walls and ceilings

When choosing surface treatment solutions for hospitality facilities’ exterior surfaces choose products that meet requirements like durability, aesthetics, weather resistance and low maintenance. Surface treatments should also be designed to provide easy access to the building. In addition, if the building has historical or cultural value special attention should be given to the exterior coatings.

Colour design

The role of colour design is essential in hospitality facilities; it is great for creating desired ambiences for varying spaces. This helps to promote a calming and home-like atmosphere in hotel bedroom spaces, a cosy mood in restaurants or energetic vibrancy in leisure spaces, such as gyms. 

Colours are also used to enhance the image and brand of the establishment. It is important to align colour choices with the brand identity: for instance, in hotels colour choices vary from standardised colour schemes in budget hotels to a more luxurious and elegant approach in five-star hotels. This also applies to restaurants, where colours can for example link the identity to a cultural background, create an intimate mood with deep colours and low lighting or in a restaurant chain contribute to brand recognition.

The important role of colours

Colours have an important role in creating the feeling of the space. People react in different ways to different colours, but often for example active colours may attract people to come in and calm colours may encourage them to relax for longer periods. Our colour experts are on hand to help provide the best solutions.
