The hospitality market is becoming more and more varied these days, and those who are designing hotels need to be aware of the latest trends as they develop their own ideas.  Inspiration for designs can be taken from almost anywhere, but there are a number of features found in chic hotels which can help generate ideas for those who are designing a new commercial space.

General design details

It is important for a chic hotel to avoid any clutter.  Too many knick knacks and the guests will begin to feel as though the walls are closing in on them.  A feeling of spaciousness, even in a small room, can be achieved by just having one or two pieces on show.  One or two pictures on the wall and perhaps a vase on a side table for holding fresh flowers will be enough.

The colour scheme should also be kept simple.  Neutral walls provide the perfect backdrop for any room.  Additionally colours can then be picked out for the other features of the room, such as soft furnishings.  Wallpaper is once again becoming fashionable, and a modern spin is to create a feature wall instead of wallpapering a whole room.

Light fittings can be used to bring out the sparkle in a room.  A chandelier fitting as the room’s main light source is a good idea.  Chandeliers are available in a variety of styles, so the hotel could feature one in a traditional style or opt for a more modern design.  The correct lighting can also help create a welcoming atmosphere in the hotel through the use of adjustable lighting or lamps.

Features of popular hotels

Interior design inspiration can be taken from other chic hotels.  There are a number of hotels around the world that have opted for unique and stylish features, and studying them for inspiration can help when putting together a design for a new property.  Some hotels have decided to include unique items in their guest rooms, such as pencils which have been made from recycled CD cases and hand-made stationery.

If the budget is unlimited for a chic hotel design, it may be possible to include remote control features around the room and bathroom.  For instance, a hotel in Tokyo has equipped its bathrooms with remote controls so that the technology in the room can be operated while the guest is relaxing in the tub.

A chic hotel should also ensure that the most is made of the views.  In a city, this generally means large windows which not only offer great views, but also let in plenty of natural light.  In other areas, such as hotels on the island of St Lucia, it might mean that a whole wall is absent.  The design allows guests to see out, but others cannot see in thanks to the strategic positioning of the suites.

Careful consideration should be given to the type of guest that the hotel is intended to attract.  Keeping the design simple and neutral will ensure fairly broad appeal, but if the aim is to bring in one particular demographic, then the design will need to take this into consideration.
