As we head into the new year, there are plenty of exciting new trends cropping up in the interior design industry. If you work in hospitality, particularly in an establishment that attracts VIP or style-savvy guests, you’ll know just how crucial it is to be on the cutting edge of the latest design trends at all times. While your hotel’s brand will always dominate the style and atmosphere of the space, there’s often room to be made to incorporate innovative new trends. Try out some of these hot hotel interior design trends for 2019 to keep your guests on their toes.
Personalised Boutique Rooms
If you’re working on the design side for a hotel that has a hefty budget behind its renovation work, then creating a personalised experience is absolutely key for 2019. Guests who are paying good money for their suite want it to suit them perfectly, and offering boutique spaces that match the guest’s taste to a tee will have the hotel on must-visit travel listings for years to come. This doesn’t just mean mixing up the colour schemes in the rooms. You can use acoustic wall tiles in a range of modern designs that make each bathroom suite feel completely unique while also creating a completely private, soundproof experience.
Use eclectic furnishings and creative, imaginative furnishing choices to give every room its own individualised atmosphere, as well as varying colour options and a customisable lighting experience complete with dimmer switches and a range of creative lighting options in each room. Offer your guests a range of options when they make their booking, with each suite offering its own unique experience, and make sure the hospitality team is ready to personalise the stay even further with each customer interaction.
No high class hotel room will be offering basic cable packages in 2019. To keep up with the latest technology, many hotels will be incorporating digital subscription Smart TV packages into their room entertainment – meaning their guests can watch whatever they want on Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, or whatever they fancy from the comfort of their bed. This opens up an expansive range of entertainment options that make the hotel TV packages of just a few years ago look practically Jurassic in comparison. These entertainment options, if budget allows, should be provided free of charge as they simply offer an equal experience to what many guests will already have in their living rooms.
With concern around the environment about the impact that carbon emissions have on our planet rising around the world, it’s more important than ever that hotels jump on board the green bandwagon in 2019. Fortunately, this is a trend that can fit comfortably into most budgets and actually save the hotel money in the long term. Offering low-flow water fittings and eco-friendly LED lighting that saves on energy will impress your green-conscious guests while saving the hotel a fortune on energy bills. Take a careful look at the carbon footprint of your hotel, and be sure that you’re doing your part to bring those figures down. Making a move toward a green future art and design is more than just a passing trend that’ll attract guests – it’s also an essential step for hotels that want to maintain their brand reputation in the future.
