In the hotel industry where first impressions are everything, looks count. Especially in the age of social media, where these impressions can be broadcast all over the world at the upload of an image in a matter of seconds. A hotel social media presence in today’s society can be vital to their success. As a result, customers are much more clued up on design. The design of the hotel becomes very much part of the guest experience, making it even more vital to keep up with the latest design trends. So, just like technology, hotels are advancing as well, constantly looking for new designs and trends that can separate them from the competition.
A Home Away from Home
As the trend for less conformity and more personalization of spaces within the hotel sector continues, we are also seeing more home touches. Lobbies are no longer business-like reception areas, but more homely, welcoming, and individual. We’re seeing mix and match furniture, upholstery, color, and design being used to create stylish environments that reflect home interior design trends. These idealized home from home elements are also being translated to other public areas of the hotel including restaurants, bars, and outdoor spaces.
A Luxurious Experience
Experience is key. Hotels are increasingly becoming destinations in their own right, and guests are looking for more than a comfortable bed and a power shower. In the past hotel design has focused on what looks good. Now it also needs to feel, smell, sound and even taste good too. While 1000 thread count bedding may have been a benchmark of the luxury hotel for some time, in the 2017 hotel other fabrics and furnishings must also feel luxurious and embrace the sensory experience, including themed restaurants and rooms, as well as the impression of casual relaxation.
