Changing Trends in Interior Design
As a homeowner, real estate investor, or individual property manager, you want to do everything you can to improve your indoor living space. Incorporating trendy interior design adds value and increases aesthetic appeal.
The trick is to understand the changing trends in interior design that apply to different industries. The styles you should incorporate vary widely, depending on whether you own residential property or a building in the hospitality industry. We have the inside scoop on what makes a trendy home or hotel.
Homes are All About Hotel-Level Luxury
After staying in a glamorous hotel suite, many homeowners and individual property owners want to take that lavish feeling home with them. If you’re striving to create a “hotel experience” in your everyday life, start in the bedroom.
The bed is the centerpiece of the room and should feature a tall frame, supportive mattress, Egyptian cotton sheets, a down comforter, and plump pillows. Other items to include in a hotel-like bedroom include side tables and lamps, a desk, cozy chairs, an armoire, and a TV hidden within a storage cabinet.
Next, incorporate a spa-like bathroom in your residential property. Modern finishes and fixtures, deep sinks, and large mirrors create a posh setting to get ready in the morning. The best hotels also have heated towel racks and radiant floor heating, so consider adding these to your home for extra luxury.
The furnishings in the main living area of your home are vital to incorporating hotel-level luxury for visitors to enjoy. From a well-appointed entryway to matching furniture in the living room to unique artwork in the dining room, these additions to your home create undeniable richness. Don’t forget lighting, window coverings, and climate control well. The ability to customize the light level and temperature is vital for ensuring comfort any time of day.
Finally, focus on the details. Things such as crown molding, plush carpet, and neutral paint colors set the tone for everything else you include in the room. Keep things organized with ample storage so your home is always ready to host visitors and houseguests.
Hotels are Moving Toward Homey Designs
Ironically, while many residential property owners want to emulate the opulence of a five-star hotel, an increasing number of hospitality designs are geared toward creating a more homelike feel. The hippest hotels go the extra mile to create an experience instead of merely a place to sleep.
The key to homey designs in the hospitality industry is personalization. Some hotels even follow up reservations with a survey to discover what guests would like in their room, such as local newspapers or magazines, fresh flower arrangements, and fruit bowls—the sorts of things you typically only find at home.
Other specialized services include blanket turndown, pillow menus, and mattresses guaranteed to provide a good night’s sleep. These are luxurious amenities, but the whole purpose is to make guests feel more at home.
In addition to the experience that hotel owners create, the setting itself is designed to feel homier. For example, the lobby may be small and intimate instead of impressive and grandiose. The idea is to create the feeling of a living room with small groupings of furniture that you might see in a private home.
As for the guest rooms themselves, each one may feature unexpected textures, mix-and-match furniture, and various tile and wall treatments instead of uniform rooms that all look the same. This way, every time a guest stays here, they have a unique experience that feels more like sleeping in someone’s home than a hotel.
