Welcome to another lesson, Redecorators! We’re excited to dive in to a different kind of design – today we won’t be focusing on everyday homes, but on hotels instead.
People are willing to spend a lot of money to have a luxurious time out from their everyday life. The more beautiful the room, the more your clients can ask for it! This is part of the reason it’s so important to bring in a seasoned professional (such as yourself) to design each room carefully.
There are, however, a few things you need to consider when designing hotel rooms. It isn’t just about making the room look pretty, but also choosing materials that are easy to clean, that will withstand the traffic of many visitors and that tie in together to create a unique look. That’s a tall order, but we know you’ve got it!
Here are some of our best tips when it comes to creating beautiful (and practical) hotel rooms:
- Place the large pieces of furniture first. Many hotel rooms opt for large, luxurious beds that can “clog up” the space so to speak, so start with choosing the bedframe and placement inside the room.
- Choose a show-stopping piece for the room. Many hotel rooms opt for a large piece of art hanging above the bed as a focal point, and we can’t blame them! This timeless look helps tie in themes like colors and patterns you use across the room.
- Accessorize correctly – a hotel room should never be too cluttered or busy! On top of creating the opposite of a soothing and calming atmosphere, too many knicknacks collect dust and are difficult to clean over time. Try to go for a cleaner look rather than an ornate one.
- Lighting is everything! A couple’s honeymoon suite, for example, should have the option to dim the lights to create a romantic mood. Think soft and cozy!
Choose the most durable yet harmonious materials to create a stunning hotel room! Think about the tips we’ve suggested here: easy to clean materials, with a luxurious feel are a must, Fingers crossed, your hotel becomes so popular that it’ll truly be put to the test!
What kind of hotels have you visited in the past? Whether we’re talking about inns, motels or 5 star hotels, there will be some similarities. Were they practical? Did the flow of the room work well? Was the size of the furniture up to scale with the rest of the room? Look up images of hotels online and try to analyze why certain design choices have been made.
Practice makes perfect:
