So you decided to open a hotel, guest house, resort, spa, or venue. Now you have to deal with all the jargon. Don’t worry. Addon Supplies are here to help.
Hotel bedding is more than a few sheets of textile. There are various factors to be considered before you buy. Like what material, color, stitching, and size. You get linen and cotton but these can get different variants, types, and thread counts. Here is a summary of what’s available. For example, sheets can be 100 percent Egyptian cotton percale, 100 percent Egyptian cotton sateen, blended cotton percale or sateen, or poly-cotton percale or sateen
100% cotton bedding
Fine yarns of long-staple cotton fibers Egyptian cotton - This is the term for where cotton is grown. Egypt's climate produces the right conditions to grow the ELS cotton used in luxury products around the world. True Egyptian cotton produces a long fiber that aids in the production of a soft thread, which is the building block of soft, fine, and durable bedding fabrics
Mixed cotton with man-made fibers such as polyester and then weaved together.
Percale represents the weave used to produce sheets, towels, and other bedding products. Each warp thread goes over one weft thread, then under the next warp thread, then over the next weft thread, continuing across the fabric. This one-over-one under weave produces a strong fabric. The threads that are woven to make the fabric determine the strength and thickness of the fabric. Thicker threads produce thicker fabric stronger than fabrics produced with thin threads. Very fine Egyptian cotton fibers can be woven in this weave, creating percale cotton bedsheets. The thread count represents the number of threads used per square inch in the chosen weave.
Sateen sheets consist of a weave where several warp threads go over one weft thread at a time. In the next row, the four threads are offset by one weft thread, creating a weave with a soft finish. Loose threads lay across the surface and create a distinct diagonal pattern when viewed closely. Because several threads lie on the surface, the fabric appears shinier than fabrics with the threads woven in the typical one-over-one-under weave. But the sateen weave is not as strong as the one-over-one-under weave, making it more susceptible to snags and pulls. Cotton bedsheets are often produced in this weave. If the threads come from ELS Egyptian cotton, it results in shiny, satin-like fabric.
Thread count TC200, TC300, TC400
is the number of threads woven together in a square inch. You count both lengthwise and widthwise threads. So 100 lengthwise threads woven with 100 widthwise threads produce a thread count of 200. The Most popular in the bedding industry are 180tc, 200tc 300tc, and 400tc. Also available is the 500tc that will give you a much denser sheet but is unnecessary and unlikely.
A very important part of your hotel, guest house, lodge, or venue is your hotel bathrooms and options.
Some venues stick to a theme from their rooms to their bathrooms and are left with big decisions like using colors on their towels, gowns, and slippers. The difficult part comes in that majority of guests believe that white is clean and will clearly show if not. Your other advantage of using whites is that it is less prone to ruin when using strong bleach detergents.
