Hospitality

Catering for the hospitality sector. It's got to be IDS.


Style, choice and value - catering for every hospitality project

The fast moving world of hospitality is a demanding environment where creating an instant impression with style and elegance combines with a massive amount of hard work, day and night. The surfaces you choose for every aspect of your hospitality projects, from hotel reception areas, guest rooms and bathrooms to restaurants and kitchens, have to cope with demanding non-stop usage – and retain their great looks, year after year. Hygiene is a key consideration too, of course, along with many other areas covered by regulatory requirements. And hospitality is a sector where trends and fashions change - most hotels and restaurants are designed with a personality and image of their own. So there’s a lot to think about! But IDS are at your service, with a vast range of surfaces to suit any and every project, available from stock. And if there’s anything special you need for your project, be our guest…just ask.

Solid surfaces for reception desks, worktops and bedroom furniture

Thermoformable Fenix NTM® is an outstanding choice for hospitality as it offers high fashion looks plus high performance levels, durability and easy cleaning. Crisp, sharp styling combines with low light reflectivity and great depth of colour, and the surfaces have anti-fingerprint, anti-static, antibacterial, hygienic qualities which make them easy to clean and maintain. Microscratches can be simply thermally treated, reducing the impact of day to day usage in, for instance, reception desks and kitchen worktops. For bedroom cabinets and drawers, the Swiss Krono One World offers endless options with over 250 designs (146 in the UK collection), and Milano High Gloss decorative panels are another stylish option with a high end finish for cupboards, wardrobe doors and other furnishings. A solid surface such as Hanex or Avonite makes a great choice for the hotel or restaurant reception desk, their durability and stylish clean lines bring a high-end feel to the establishment. The Studio Collection in particular boasts amazing translucent decors, which can be backlit to create an outstanding luminous surface. The Studio Collection decor Tempest 8710 was recently used to great effect in Shoeless Joe's Sports Grill.

100% waterproof solutions for bathrooms and washrooms

Showerwall panels are easy to install – no wet trades are needed - completely waterproof, ultra-hygienic, stain resistant and offer enhanced sealing quality with Surerseal trim. So they’re ideal for hotel bathrooms – and with Showerwall Infinity they can be personalised and branded too, to make them unique to their location and ethos of the establishment. Smart! IDS also hold the UK’s largest stockholding of the award winning Nuance wall panel range from Bushboard – with designs and textures to create bathroom interiors with a touch of on-trend quality and luxury. Nuance is a 100% waterproof wall panelling solution, that can turn any bathroom or wet room from drab to fab. When it comes to sinks and bowls, the Hanex solid surface features a great selection - contact us for more information.

Showerwall’s new range is a game-changer for the hospitality sector

Showerwall’s new sophisticated and versatile nature-inspired collections embrace the latest trends and innovations, with Proclick installation technology for a beautifully seamless finish and the industry’s first synchronised texture for bathroom wall surfaces.

Trends, textures and technology are the key words behind the new product offer, which gives designers and specifiers access to a 66-strong range that caters for all tastes from luxuriously veined marbles, to earthy stones and shimmering quartz, and from sleek glass-like acrylics to the flexibility of custom-printed designs.

Ideal for use in shower enclosures, around baths, behind basins and to create statement feature walls, the range offers an unrivalled spectrum of décors grouped into five collections of Marble, Quarry, Mineral, Acrylic and Custom standard or bespoke digital printed options.

Acrylics include standard designs that offer a palette of bold, neutral and metallic plain colours in a sleek glass-like finish, or the option to create completely bespoke designs using any image, which opens up a world of design choice for projects.

There are five surface finishes in gloss, matte, texture, synchro and acrylics each delivering premium aesthetics and performance, while complementing the designs. The unique synchro texture harnesses state-of-the-art print technology to create a perfectly synchronised décor in Lightning Marble.

Hygiene and high performance for kitchen walls

The kitchen is arguably the most demanding of all hospitality environments and Altro Whiterock™ wall cladding is ideal for these areas, where hygiene is paramount. It has a smooth, tough and durable surface, and can be wiped clean in an instant. Whiterock is Class 0 fire rated when fully bonded to a non-combustible surface, and can be thermoformed in and out of corners so there’s nowhere for grease and dirt to hide. It meets all those essential building and food hygiene regulations required in the public sector, making it perfect for every hotel and restaurant kitchen.
