A new business has been launched in North Yorkshire to help small hotels, B&Bs and guesthouses create luxurious rooms without the matching price tag. (B&B Interiors), based in York, manufactures and fits soft furnishings to create a luxurious boutique hotel look and feel on a budget.
Tapping into the latest design trends, customers can create interiors that match their specific brand image and generate instant wow factor. Unlike off-the-shelf, mass-produced soft furnishings that guests may see in other hotels, B&B Interiors enables small hoteliers and B&B owners to make a personal statement, unique to them.
The family run company hand makes bespoke headboards, footstools, ottomans, pelmets, curtains, blinds, curtain tracks and poles, cushions, throws and valances at trade prices. It also offers a design and project management service, ensuring disruption to letting rooms is kept to a minimum. From start to finish, the process takes as little as three weeks while fit out of rooms is done in a single day.
‘In the Tripadvisor and Instagram era, small hotels, B&Bs and guest houses can’t afford to use bland, dated or mass produced furnishings if they want to stand out,’ explains Gary White, founder of B&B Interiors. ‘We help them create luxurious rooms that guests will rave about, without costing a fortune, by cutting out the middleman.’
York small hotel Hedley House used the services of the company to make over the communal areas that guests relax in. The husband and wife owners wanted a traditional feel with a contemporary edge, in keeping with their fabulous Victorian townhouse property.
‘B&B Interiors were just what we were looking for, high quality curtains, roman blinds and headboards at great prices. They advised on all aspect of design, were attentive to detail, friendly and most importantly, they were quick and local to us,’ says Greg Harrand, co-owner of Hedley House Hotel.
B&B Interiors currently serves North Yorkshire, but will accept requests from customers further afield depending on time scales required. For more information go to www.boutiqueandbespokeinteriors.co.uk
