Furnishing a luxury hotel can seem like a daunting task. After all, top hotel customers expect their rooms to be beautiful, useful, and a pleasure during their stay. If the customer isn’t happy, woe unto hotel managers. There are a few useful tips in furnishing and decorating a luxury hotel room that can’t go wrong. >
Choose Your Paint Colours Wisely
While it is recommended to fill dining areas with brilliant reds, oranges, and yellows to induce appetite, hotel rooms require a far different palette. The guests’ rooms should be drenched in restful colours that create a peaceful aura. Off-whites and neutral tones, soft greys, muted golds, and silver patinas provide soothing feelings. The same goes for any tiles or wallpaper chosen.
Pay Attention to Furniture Choices
While spare, spindly, luxury furniture can be visually appealing and elegant, they do nothing for comfort. Choose pieces of furniture that offer comfort as well as aesthetic appeal. Rich brocades and embroidery are lovely and luxurious, but can just as well be chosen on furniture that is large and soft. Luxury furniture does not have to be uncomfortable. Remember that hotel rooms are for relaxation on a vacation or business trip, not simply a work of art to be looked upon.
Make sure that there is plenty of seating in your guest rooms. A single chair is not sufficient. Three or four chairs, whether you choose to match them perfectly or have mismatched coordination, will suffice for guests and anyone they might have visiting. Tables are also a necessity. Other than bedside tables, there should be a desk and at least one useful table in each room where guests can eat, read, and perform other tasks.
Don’t Go Stingy on Accessories
Throw pillows can add a great deal of beauty and appeal to a room without spending a large amount of money. Incorporate fabric throw pillows that have interest – embroidered fabric, tassels, or a fabric with sheen. These can sit on the bed as well as in any chairs.
The Importance of Fabrics
When choosing bedding and window treatments, consider how they will perform. Looking nice doesn’t matter if sheets are scratchy or draperies allow in too much light after dark. Choose bedding for your guest rooms in lush fabrics such as Egyptian cotton, satin, or raw silks, if you are going the expensive route. Window treatments should make a guest feel as if their room is a cocoon away from the chaotic world when the drapes are closed.
Arrange Beautiful Enticements for Guests
Bottles of wine and gourmet chocolates are not the only ways to please a guest immediately upon entering his or her room. Sometimes, a simple, crystal carafe of ice cold water can be the most welcome addition when a guest walks in from lengthy travel. Lightly-scented lotions and bath items such as bath salts, loofas, or bubble bath in a pretty bottle are wonderfully luxurious for a lady guest.
