Locker Room FF&E
Although not the most glamorous part of your facility, locker rooms play an important role in guest satisfaction. Guests want to be able clean up and change in relative comfort. The FF&E in your locker room goes a long way in making them feel comfortable. Today in the Sports Facilities Advisory blog, we’ll discuss what you need to consider when choosing the FF&E for your locker rooms.
Obviously, the first thing you need for a locker room is lockers. Guests will want a place they can safely store things like a change of clothes. Lockers don’t have to be a complicated decision, but they do come in different sizes and colors. Make sure you get ones that match your aesthetic or color scheme. Your lockers don’t have to be anything extremely fancy. Granted, you want them to look nice, but it’s nothing to blow an FF&E budget over. Also, you may want to consider including some lockers that have keypad locks. Guests will appreciate the option to purchase a locker for the day if they have valuables they want to store. Otherwise, for most people, normal lockers will do.
Locker Room Furniture
Another important consideration is the type of furniture you want to have in your locker room. Benches are a necessity because they give guests somewhere to sit when they change their shoes or when they’re putting away things in their locker. You can also have some more comfortable chairs and sofas in your locker rooms if there is room. Guests will appreciate a more comfortable option if they’re using the locker room to rest for a bit before leaving. Generally, you don’t have to be especially concerned with the FF&E you’re putting in your locker room as long as you’re meeting guest expectations. Also, remember to order furniture that meets the general aesthetic and branding of your sports facility.
