Here, I’m sharing some things that I needed to consider when thinking about furnishing our lovely StayZo properties when we came to the setup.
Furniture and Its Functions
We know that our furniture is going to be used by many different people and we aim to ensure that every guest has a comfortable bed and comfortable seating downstairs in the lounge and dining room.
Each piece of furniture was reviewed on the basis that it will perform its function perfectly, looks good and is well made so that it provides longevity.
To add flexibility, many of StayZo’s properties come with Zip and Link beds. These enable a quick switch from 2 singles to a comfortable double.
Size & Shape of furniture
Much thought went into considering the right size of furniture. Every room was measured with the view to purchasing the correct shape and size of the furniture to ensure a clean and clutter-free look.
As a result, the furniture fits well into the available space well and still leave free space for a walk around. By making sure that this looks right, it ensures the rooms look welcoming and well thought out.
Not over done
We didn’t put excessive amounts of furniture pieces in our properties as too many pieces will crowd the space, blocking walkways and leaving no room for our guests to leave their suitcases etc.
Health and Safety
All of our furniture meet the current Health and safety standards, being fully compliant with the Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988 (amended 1989, 1993 and 2010) legislation, which looks to ensure that upholstery components and composites used for furniture supplied in the UK meet specified ignition resistance levels.
