COMMERCIAL PROPERTY DESIGN
A rich centuries-old cultural and artistic heritage, inspiring landscapes and sublime wine and food. Ever since the epic Grand Tour Italy’s polychrome legacy has been beckoning to the world, attracting hundreds of thousands of travellers and visitors every year. If there’s one thing an astute and far-sighted foreign investor knows it’s that Italy is never going to go out of fashion! Desired and dreamed about worldwide il bel paese is, and will always be, one of the world’s most coveted tourist destinations. Which also implies it will continue being one of the most strategic destinations to focus on for commercial real estate investments. Because embarking on a commercial real estate venture in Italy, particularly one that involves accommodation and/or recreation, offers direct access to Italy’s 50 million+ yearly tourists. In a nutshell? Savvy foreign investors are bound to get excellent dividends, provided they purchase the right kind of property, and are able to outfit it and beautify it to respond to travellers’ desires.
The first step to ponder is what kind of property to choose, and buy. Easily said: hotels, bed and breakfasts, agriturismos (farm holiday accommodation solutions), holiday homes and farms are all wonderfully favourable investment options. The second, and possibly lengthiest and challenging, is renovating/restoring it, fitting it out, furnishing and decorating it to meet prospective clients’ demands, wishes and, possibly, their daydreams too.
Needless to say, in fact, a commercial property has to be lovely, and somewhat seductive, because in Italy one simply expects to find elegance and charm. Refurbishing and enhancing the commercial real estate asset is the key to success, but managing to do it all on one’s own may very well be daunting for a foreign investor, unfamiliar with the local market, and possibly not fluent in Italian. Plus, having to travel to and from a foreign country is not the ideal condition to be in, when it comes to selecting contractors, dealing with prospective suppliers, choosing bathroom tiles, and picking out the most tasteful fabrics.
Understanding the Italian way for commercial property design
Selecting the right style, one that feels “right” and blends with the environment and premises is crucial to get a good outcome, to please and charm your future clients and to create a venue that boasts character. Depending on where the property is located, and what it will host, an inspired owner will wish to underline its innate country simplicity, or enhance contemporary “city style” fashion.
Whatever the style, going for Made In Italy furnishings, brands, textiles and the like is the first-rate choice. Yes, because Italian manufacturing brands, artisan-crafted fabrics and niche products, are not only impeccable and superb to behold, they also perfectly express Italy’s unique flair and finesse… after all, Italians have been making marvelous furniture and weaving wool, silk and linen ever since the Middle Ages!
