HOTEL ROOM AMENITIES
What is the first thing you do when you walk into a hotel room? You may browse the décor; others may look at the overall size of the room. Some people might check out the bathroom while others may look and see if there is a mini fridge and microwave. What do we do? We check out those curtains and curtain tracks.
COMFORT IN MIND
Hotel rooms are designed with the comfort of the guests in mind and that includes all of the points we just mentioned in the paragraph above… the décor, the amenities. But it also includes the fixtures over the windows. Often overlooked as an insignificant piece to a hotel room, the curtains and how they are hung really do play an integral part to the overall comfort of guests.
When you don’t get a good night’s sleep, there could be several reasons why. One could be the bed. Yes, a comfortable bed is particularly important to getting a great night of sleep. But another element is if those curtains don’t completely cover the windows, unwanted light from the outside can come into the room.
If the room has thick curtains and they are hung on quality curtain tracks, guests are more likely to sleep well. The best curtains not only block light, but they are also sound reducing which can help with outside noise such as emergency sirens, horns blaring or just overall traffic.
CHECK THEM OUT
The next time you are on the road and visit a hotel, take an extra look at the windows, curtain tracks and accessories. We hope you appreciate the design and functionality as much as we do!
