People have a tendency towards loyalty when it comes to hotels. Travelers, of course, try out new places for a new experience, but they typically always remember and revisit the hotels that provided them with the most enjoyable experience.
A happy guest results from incorporating interior design elements into your hotel that have guests’ best interests in mind. From big reconstruction overhauls to something as simple as anticipating the small elements a customer needs or expects, the goal of any hotel is to make guests feel taken care of while being treated to pleasing hotel design aesthetics and amenities.
When it comes to a hotel interior design for guest rooms, there are a number of simple yet functional elements to incorporate to fulfill the needs of every customer.
Here are five suggestions for incorporating interior design elements your hotel rooms that ensure satisfied guests:
1. Provide Perfect Placement For Power Outlets
Have you ever tried to move a nightstand or bed in a hotel room to get to a power outlet? Poorly situated power outlets are frustrating for your hotel guests. Today, travelers pack a number of tech devices – smartphones, iPads, laptops and gaming devices – and you need to provide a number of well-situated outlets so there’s zero inconvenience.
An easy-to-implement interior design idea is to provide properly placed outlets as a feature of bedside lighting fixtures. This way, when powering up a device, a guest doesn’t have to stand next to an outlet to send a text message, research a restaurant or do work. They may sit back and relax on the bed while they use their device.
2. Install Lighted Wall Mirrors Above The Vanity
Room lighting is a common hotel design issue. While you want to create a cozy atmosphere, your guests also need good lighting in the right areas.
One place where lighting is typically lacking is above the vanity. Guests want to look and feel their best during their stay at your hotel, and this becomes a challenge for them when they are getting ready in front of a dimly lit mirror. An interior design element such as lighted wall mirrors provides the right type of lighting for a vanity space.
3. Be Sure To Provide A Work Space
While a reasonable percentage of your hotel guests are likely business travelers, due to our wireless world and a growing remote workforce, more and more guests are taking their work with them on vacation.
Provide a spacious desk area with task lighting and easy access to power outlets. Also, providing your hotel guests with access to the Internet is an absolute must these days. And, for when guests have to crank out some cold calls or a report, they will appreciate the convenience of a coffeemaker with gourmet coffee and all the fixings.
4. Take Into Consideration The Size Of The Television
Another interior design idea to consider is the television. One of the first things guests do when they enter their hotel room is turn on the TV as they start to settle in. Typically speaking, the larger the TV, the happier the guest.
More often than not, hotels are designing furniture based on the TV size. Before you plan for the furniture in your rooms, select the size of the flat-screen TV you want installed. This way, the furniture doesn’t limit the TV size.
5. Bring A Lot Of Luxury Into The Room
You not only want your guests to feel right at home, but you want to provide them with an elevated experience that makes their stay feel extra special. Adding little luxurious interior design elements goes a long way in this effort.
Pillows and bedding are always a big deal to hotel guests, so be sure to provide rooms with the softest, most comfortable bedding possible. Also, fabrics and textiles on accent pillows, blankets, throw rugs and chair backs are all interior design opportunities to add touches of “the good life.”
A happy hotel guest is a guest for life. A happy hotel guest is also prone to recommend your hotel to friends and attract curious new customers with positive online reviews. Satisfied guests (and their positive recommendations) stem from having their expectations exceeded, so let no interior design element go unforgotten.
