When guests visit a hotel, they want to feel as comfortable as they would at home. That’s why it’s a smart idea for people in the hospitality industry to keep an eye on current home design trends. Many of these can be adopted with a minimal investment, for instance by changing out lampshades or bedding. Here are a few hot design trends for this year and how you can adopt them:
Every year, the color experts at Pantone decide what’s the up and coming shade. For 2019, it’s Living Coral. Another hot shade on the trend charts is a deep forest green. Are you interested in adopting one or both of these? Hotel bedding sets and curtains are a great way to play with these colors. You can also add a pop of these hues through new pillowcases or lampshades. Finally, don’t forget about in-room artwork. You should be able to easily find pieces in these trendy shades.
Floral prints remain hot. These are now joined by a newcomer: interlocking geometric designs. Best of all, the trend is to mix and match these two patterns in complementary shades. This means that if you invested in last year’s floral craze, you can update the look to 2019 with a few key accent pillows and bed scarves in eye-catching patterns. Other areas where you may be able to use patterns include the shower curtains or seating upholstery.
Home Cooking at the Hotel
Thanks to the popularity of diets like Whole30, Paleo, and Veganuary, more and more people are getting into homecooked meals and prepping food for the workday. You can offer your guests the convenience of their own kitchen in the hotel room in several ways. This could include access to kitchenettes or even simple amenities like coffee makers, microwaves, and refrigerators. You may also want to offer expanded options at a Continental Breakfast so people on every diet plan can find something they like.
Luxurious Bath Experiences
People are pampering themselves during showers and baths, and the aromatherapy and botanical product industries are booming. You can take advantage of this trend by offering scented and luxuriously moisturizing bath and hair products. Some trends include tropical themes, energizing citrus blends, or scents that encourage relaxation and good sleep. These may be found in shampoos, conditioners, body washes, moisturizers, and bar soaps.
