As time goes on, trends are constantly changing, whether they're fashion trends, technology trends or travel trends. Therefore, the hotel industry must know the new trends and what customers are looking for. So, what are the new 2021 trends in hotel guest room decoration?
The most significant trend changes in the hotel industry for 2020 are the cleanliness of hotel rooms due to the pandemic. Due to the particular situation, the first thing that guests will consider before booking a hotel room is cleanliness and safety. A hotel can be advantageous if they are using the latest cleaning technologies like walk-through sanitizing booths, robot custodians, and self-cleaning surfaces. Cleanliness is always the first thing during a pandemic.
Another new trend is the incorporation of technology in hotel guest rooms. Technology is taking over the world, so it’s not surprising it’s being used in hotel guest rooms as well. Having technology in your hotel puts you at an advantage over other hotels.
With the everyday use of high technology, more and more customers are starting to expect smart rooms to control the room temperature, lighting, and even entertainment through a mobile device or voice. Using mobile door keys for added security is another new trend. Interaction through a mobile device will be the trend for how the hotel industry works in the future. For example, customers do not want to spend time checking check-in; mobile check-in and check-out solve this problem. Using mobile check-in and check-out not only saves customers’ time but can also save money for a hotel to hire extra staff.
DESIGN FOR INSTAGRAM POST
The generation now is constantly posting pictures of their vacations online, and the most popular platform for that is Instagram. People are always trying to find an "Instagram" location to take a picture. This can range from a unique wall, room with a view, excellent food presentation from the hotel restaurant, or a uniquely designed lobby. There are so many ways you can make your hotel more attractive; be creative.
A new trend for hotel rooms is being designed with a light and calm color palette, installing the technology, creating a "homey" feeling, adding memorable decor items like plants or unique wall art, and installing noise reduction technology.
