4 things you must consider.
Interior Images is always looking for ways to help you improve your guest experience. And while creating lasting memories for your guests is vital, we also understand that cost effectiveness and environmental sustainability are among your top priorities as a hotelier.
Dispenser amenity programs offer significant benefits across guest experience, cost, and sustainability. There are also so many beautiful products to choose from today, with luxury retail brands and sumptuous locally made products on offer – all available in sleek, stylish dispenser bottles.
With the right dispenser program, you can not only elevate your guest experience and reduce your environmental impact, but also save on costs in the long run.
It’s not surprising then, that we’re seeing many Australian hotels opting for this alternative.
With so many dispenser options available, how do you choose the right one for your property?
To answer this question, you’ll need to consider:
- Do you want to refill the dispensers from bulk containers?
- Do you want to replace the whole dispenser when it is nearly empty?
- Do you want wall-mounted dispensers that are tamper-proof and theft-proof?
- Do you want freestanding bottles that offer a more home-like experience for guests?
Refillable dispensers promote sustainability by reducing the amount of plastic waste generated from single-use packaging or replacing large dispenser bottles. Refillable dispensers can also be cost-effective as they eliminate the need for constant purchasing and disposal of single-use packaging, or non-refillable dispenser bottles. It’s worth noting that you will still need to replace the dispenser bottles every six months or so to keep them looking new.
Non-refillable dispensers reduce the risk of product contamination that can occur during the re-filling process. With non-refillable dispensers, you can ensure that the product quality is maintained, and there is no mixing of different batches. The cost of your staff refilling the dispensers can outweigh the saving in the cost of buying bulk product. And, you will still save considerable plastic using a non-refillable dispenser, compared to a single use (30-50ml) program.
Wall mounted dispenser systems use brackets that can range from traditional metal units requiring drilling into tiles, to new and innovative bracket systems that can be fixed to walls with 3M tape or silicone. Wall-mount systems reduce theft and make retail bottles tamper-proof. Wall mount systems can also be the best option when there is no shelf in the shower.
Freestanding dispenser programs create a luxurious, at-home experience for high end guests. Rather than a feeling of ‘not being trusted’, freestanding bottles of beautiful products can give your guests the feeling that they’re in their own shower – making it the perfect option for luxury properties.
Ultimately, the choice of dispenser comes down to the specific needs and preferences of your guests, and your property. Regardless of the dispenser option you decide on, when you combine high-quality fixtures with luxurious products and renowned brands, you can reduce waste, enjoy long-term savings, and elevate the perception of hotel amenities programs for your guests.
