Latest project – local hotel fit-out

In case you missed it over on our Facebook page, here’s a sneak peak of what we’ve been up to recently. The team have been busy at a local hotel, designing and fitting new furniture for the bedrooms.

All furniture, including wardrobes, headboards, shelving and chairs, was designed, manufactured and fitted by our team. We then added the finishing touches by supplying bed throws and cushions. As you can see from the photos, it’s all come together beautifully to create a sophisticated yet practical space for travellers to work, rest and recharge

Don’t forget we offer free quotations and site surveys, as well as a complete design service. To find out more, give us a call on 0118 9883009 or email

How to choose the right headboard for your hotel

The manufacture of a grey buttoned headboard

When a guest enters a hotel room for the first time, one of the very first things they’ll notice is the bed. It’s therefore vitally important that your headboard is stylish, luxurious and suited to the design of the room. But with so many fabrics, colours and design options available, it can be tricky to know what to choose. Below are a few questions to ask yourself which should help you narrow down the possibilities.

  • Does the headboard need to be wall mounted or bed mounted?
  • What about the borders – do you want them to be plain, piped and bordered, or piped and rouched?
  • Do you want deep buttoning on your headboard, or a smooth finish?
  • Do you want a fabric or wood finish?
  • How durable does the fabric need to be?
  • Think about the rest of the room – where are the lights and switches going, and how will the headboard fit with them?

We are happy to provide advice – free of charge – on design options and functionality. Once you’ve chosen your design, your bespoke headboards will be manufactured and upholstered by our experienced team in our Reading workshop. We’ll then deliver and install them for free (T&C apply).

The Benefits of Renovation

Armchair restoration - before and after

Keeping your furniture up to date is one of the many responsibilities that come with managing a hotel. You need to create an atmosphere of comfort, relaxation and luxury for your guests, from the sofas and stools in the bar to the side chairs and headboards in the bedrooms. Put simply, quality decor means higher room rates and more repeat business. So how do you keep your furniture looking fresh without replacing it with brand new items? With hotel furniture renovation you’ll cut costs, fast-track the process, and reduce your carbon footprint too.

Budget Friendly

With our reupholstering services, you can slash your expenses by up to 50%! Renovation eliminates not only the requirement to buy brand new, but also the costly disposal of old items. With our free advice and quotes, as well as free delivery within 50 miles of Reading (T&Cs apply), the savings soon stack up. Standard turnaround time is 7-10 business days, but our experts understand the quick turnaround needed for hotel projects and can work to a quicker timeframe if required. High-quality French polishing services are offered at competitive rates and can be completed on-site. What’s more, a professional cleaning service is included in the price, so you can be sure that your guests are enjoying hygienic chairs and sofas throughout the hotel. Best of all, our renovation work is covered by a 12-month warranty.

Environmentally Safe

Billions of tons of furniture go to landfill every single year, releasing massive amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. When you reupholster rather than throw away, you’re keeping that furniture out of landfill and also preventing further pollution from the manufacturing of a brand new product. The refurbishment and reuse of quality pieces is one of the best ways to combat environmental damage and help the planet.

Versatile and On-Trend

Almost any hotel furniture can be reupholstered, including chairs, sofas and bar stools. We offer a vast array of fabrics with hundreds of different colours and patterns to choose from, or alternatively you can choose your own fabric to fit with your existing theme. This creative flexibility enables you to maintain a modern style in a simple and cost-effective way. Worn out arms and sunken backs can be replaced, and a range of wooden, aluminium and nylon bases are available. Have a look at our reupholstery gallery to see what we can do.

Our French Polisher set to work replacing the missing or damaged beading and then polished to match the existing beading.  The remaining host desk was thoroughly cleaned and revived.  This desk now provides the very best impression for guests enjoying the popular Beeches restaurant.
