Hospitality industry thrives on creating unforgettable guest experiences. Towards such objective, hotels and hospitality spaces continuously seek and update with newer concepts that are intuitive enough to engage the minds and souls of their guests. At Shruti Sodhi Interior Designs in Delhi, our team of hotel interior designers understands the dynamism of the hospitality industry, and therefore, has compiled a list of some of the fastest growing trends in hotel interior design in 2017. Take a look-
1. Inclusion of Green Features
Most hotel owners, nowadays, focus on minimizing short term costs and improving sustainability. Inclusion of green features, therefore, helps them achieve this objective and also up the ante in terms of competition. There are some really innovative ideas for incorporating green features such as green walls and green roofs, over-sized windows for natural lighting, recycling bins for guests, locally grown produce for cooking and grey-water recycling. Many hotels are also including bamboo hedges in the reception spaces and glass panel lounges to enhance their aesthetic value.
2. Revamping the Lobby for Social Engagements
Today, hotel lobbies are getting popular as the preferred site for both casual and formal social interactions. Therefore, to cater a larger audience, hotel interior designers are shifting focus from a traditional sofa-coffee table arrangement to a more contemporary seating arrangement that has comfortable furniture, and creative space segregation for various clientele. In addition, hotel lobbies today, are also featuring exciting features such as indoor waterfalls, chandeliers and multimedia stations.
3. Modernizing Guestroom Configurations
One of the most exciting trends in the modern hospitality industry is the inclusion of creative offices, clear glass windows with opaque or translucent curtains, an additional sofa next to the bed, and interactive TV screens to create suave guestrooms. By digressing from the traditional approach of having a bed, table, and locker assembly, hotel owners can not only enhance the aesthetics of the hotel rooms, but also make them more inviting and homely. Add to this, some eclectic decor ideas and eye-popping colours, and you have got a unique space to attract even more guests.
4. Seamless Indoor-Outdoor Aesthetics
To enhance the overall sensory experience of the guests, it is imperative that the hotel rooms are designed, so as to keep the indoor outdoor transition as “seamless” as possible. Instead of being cooped up, guests always prefer natural lighting in their room and an outside view. Therefore, having large decks and terraces, along with large window panes, wood panelling and indoor waterfalls, allows hotel owners to create a living space that is both contemporary and mesmerizing.
5. Private Balcony Pools
Suites with private balcony pools are regarded as some of the most immersive and luxurious hospitality concepts to have caught the fancy of hotel owners today. Private balcony pools, not only allow guests to enjoy their stay in a privy manner, but also help hotel interior designers to further blur the lines between the indoors and the outdoors. The front edge of these pools overlooks the horizon and offers sensational open views to the guests as they soak in water.
Guests today, look for hotel accommodations that provide a wholesome home experience, away from home. The hospitality sector has evolved significantly, in the last few years, to cater to this changing dynamics of clients’ expectations. Subsequently, we now have hotels that sport luxurious and technology-friendly rooms, along with inspired interior designs, artworks, green features, and eclectic colour choices.
