B&Bs have become popular nowadays. B&Bs have sprung up like bamboo shoots after the rain. They have exploded and quickly occupied the market. However, how to choose bed linen has become a problem for many B&B people. As a linen person, I would like to give the B&B people a bit of opinion. Bedding and hotel bedding have different demands in the field of linen, but there is a high degree of overlap between them.
When the hotel chooses bedding, it needs to be purchased under normal circumstances: 1. Quilt 2. Mattress or protective pad 3. Four-piece suit 4. Pillow 5. Pillow 6. Bed flag 7. Towel 8. Bath towel 9. Bathrobe .
However, when choosing bedding, the homestay also needs to purchase the above 9 types of products, and you can refer to the hotel’s selection plan.
The quilt, mattress, pillow, bed flag, and pillow in the bedclothes of the homestay are purchased according to the ratio of 1:1.1; the four-piece suit is recommended to be purchased according to the ratio of 1:3; the bed flag can be ignored, the homestay is originally Partially at home, so you can ignore the decorative effect of the bed flag. You can prepare more towels and bath towels. Towels and bath towels consume a lot of money and can be purchased at a ratio of 1:4. Part of the loss needs to be replenished in time. The selection of all the above products can be modified according to the size of the homestay, but it is best not to be lower than this ratio, which may affect the overall operation of the homestay.
1. What material is selected by the core?
For hotels, duvets are the best choice. Not only for its comfort, but also for the long-term use process, the cost of duvets will be continuously reduced. Duvets coexist with comfort and economy. For homestays, you don’t need to stick to this, but you can have a lot of personalization. choose.
For example, nostalgic homestays can use traditional cotton quilts. The quilt with a unique smell of cotton will also be well received by customers.
For budget homestays, you can consider using feather silk quilts. Now the excellent silk quilts with soybean fiber can achieve the feel of silk quilts. Of course, duvets are a very good choice.
The duvet is preferably white goose down, 95 or 90, or even 85, or even 50 white goose down. B&Bs with rich and frugal people and stronger profitability can use 95 cashmeres, less capable ones, and 50 cashmeres for mid-range ones. However, the quilt must be made of cotton first. The duvet itself is very light. If you use a full-chemical fiber quilt, it will be easy to run away.
Silk quilt is not recommended!
Silk quilts cannot be disinfected or dehumidified by drying or drying. Because protein fibers are prone to denaturation and damage at high temperatures, however, passengers frequently replace them. In order to make guests sleep comfortably, the quilt must be frequently disinfected and sterilized. Therefore, it is not economical to use silk quilts.
If possible, summer quilt is recommended in summer, which can reduce air-conditioning electricity bills.
Summer quilt, you can choose Tencel summer quilt, which is cool and comfortable. There are also some high-end homestays that use down duvets, and the cost will be much higher.
2. What material is used for the mattress?
The mattress is chosen with great effort. If the mattress itself has the function of a mattress, you can consider not adding a mattress, just add a mattress protector.
If it is necessary to add a warm layer such as a mattress, a feather mattress can be preferred.
Cotton mattresses are commonly used mattresses in families, but they are not suitable for homestays and hotels. They are easy to get dirty and give guests a bad experience. If you want to use it, you need to use a similar shell.
3. What material is used for the pillow core?
Traditional hotel pillows are all feather pillows or down pillows. The reason for using feathers or down pillows is still related to cost and experience.
Down and feather pillows can provide a good slow rebound body feel, and at the same time, they are also very durable. Therefore, it is a very good choice to open a homestay and buy feather pillows from the crowd. However, there are also some new pillows, such as latex pillows, slow rebound pillows and so on.
4. How to choose a four-piece suit?
The four-piece set of white satin strips most commonly used in the past in the hotel has now begun to be simplified. The four-piece set of satin strips is used. Due to the diversity of homestays, ordinary white kits can no longer meet the needs of homestays.
The homestay is special. For the bedding selected by the homestay, the style and decoration must be considered first. Pure white bedding lacks style. Under the premise of not considering the style, the homestay practitioners can choose the bedding like this.
a. For ordinary homestays, consider the 13372 four-piece cotton twill set.
This type of four-piece print has a variety of styles, which can meet the basic needs of homestays. Of course, the cotton twill is also an entry-level four-piece suit.
b. Simple style homestays such as Japanese-style lonely wind, you can consider a four-piece set of washed cotton.
Washed cotton is a naturally worn fabric with a slightly rough texture and excellent breathability. Washable cotton has another feature, the more it is used, the more comfortable it is, and the more it is washed, the more skin-friendly it is. Therefore, washing cotton with water will bring a good sense of experience to customers.
C. Light luxury style homestay is suitable for high-count and high-density bedding.
High-count and high-density satin patterns are also four-piece suits commonly used in hotels. Light luxury style homestays have a higher tone, so this type of homestay should try to use more than 60 four-piece sets, such as 80 and 100 fabrics.
Some homestays are American style, so you can choose some 60 printed satin, which is more suitable for the decoration style.
New product, a four-piece set of 60 washed cotton jacquard. Combining the exquisite smoothness of satin with the refreshing breathability of washing, it is a very suitable product for homestays.
D. We also have some hotel customers who use knitted fabrics.
The basic structure of knitted cotton fabric is loops, so it will be slightly elastic, and at the same time softer and skin-friendly. The softness of knitted fabrics is well known, but knitted cotton also has a shortcoming, which is not durable enough. Therefore, homestays use knitted fabrics to pursue comfort while sacrificing durability.
Knitting is suitable for small guest houses, and there are not many rooms, so you can bring your own washing machine to clean the bedding. If you like to use non-white homestays, you need to prepare your own laundry room to avoid permanent damage to the fabrics caused by large-scale machine washing and bleaching.
5. How to choose towels and bath towels
Household towels, everyone likes to use non-twisting, soft and skin-friendly. However, for the hotel, no twisting means that it is particularly easy to wear and tear, and it is almost necessary to change each guest.
Use high-weight long-staple cotton towels to ensure comfort and durability.
6. Choice of bathrobe
When the hotel chooses bathrobes, the main focus is on the weight and comfort of the product.
Normally there are waffle fabrics, terry fabrics, cut pile fabrics, double-layer fabrics and so on. At present, the choice of bathrobes for guest houses is generally waffle fabrics and cut pile fabrics. Waffle fabrics are generally divided into cotton and polyester-cotton fabrics. All cotton is light, soft, and has good skin-friendly properties, while polyester-cotton is light and thin, with poor skin-friendly properties and higher washing durability. Cut pile fabric bathrobes are heavy, delicate, soft, skin-friendly, and have a strong texture. Each homestay chooses its own products according to its own situation.
