Hotel Bedding for the hospitality industry. Bed linon or linen

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 threat 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. When this guide is done the only remaining question will be - "linon or linen"?

What makes the best hotel bedding.

  1. Should be soft to the touch and not scratchy
  2. Easy to clean. White hotel bedding is the favourable choice as you can use harsher cleaning bleaches and you can see if the sheets is not hygienically clean.
  3. Smells like good and clean bedding. Odour can be very upsetting to your guests and could cause them to walk out in the middle of the night. This is why it's very important to keep your bedding in any hospitality venue clean and fresh.
  4. Durable and long lasting even when using strong detergents will bring your overheads low and help save on spending.
  5. Depending on climate where your venue is located could help determine what bedding you should go for. Thinner sheets and duvets will be more suitable for a warm sticky climate. It's always a good idea to keep a spare blanket in the wardrobe for if your gusts get cold in the middle of the night.

Materials used in hospitality bedding.

Egyptian cotton
  • There are many types of cotton of which the most popular is the egyptian cotton. Egyptian cotton has extra long staples (ELS) The origin is the US but the climate in egypt is perfect for growing this cotton.
Satin/Silk
  • Satin refers to the weave of a fabric rather than the material. It's a soft glossy finish that's smooth to the touch on the body. Can be sticky and uncomfortable in warm climates.
Polyester
  • A synthetic fabric that's ussually made from petrolium oil. Polyester bed linon is a entry level budget range that offers the most bang for buck.
Polycotton
  • Mixture of polyester and cotton

Thread counts used in hotel bedding

TC180,TC200,TC300,TC400,TC500
  • Thread count 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 is 180tc, 200tc 300tc and 400tc. Also available is the 500tc that will give you a much denser sheet but is unnecessary and unlikely.
Misconception about threads
  • Very often the misconception is that the more threads, the better. This doesn't mean that because there is 100 threads extra that it will last longer. Your risk of snagging is much higher. Too much thread could make the cover heavy and unpleasant.

Common weaves in hotel industry bedding

Percale weave
  • 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 fibres 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 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.

Hotel Bathroom

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 left with the 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.

What makes the best hotel and guesthouse bathrooms

  1. Hotel bathroom towels should be clean, fresh and odour free.
  2. Bathrooms should be neatly organized with towels rolled up on the bed. If it's not neat and organised you will loose your guests.
  3. White branded bathroom robes is probably the biggest item that makes you feel you are on holiday in a hotel
