Today, you’ll see the Hotels Interior design trends for 2014 at Designinvogue.com.
1. Lobbies envisioned as dynamic multi-use spaces
We’ve seen many hotel projects focused on offering a striking first impression. The importance of entrance lobbies is growing, as social encounters become more and more dependent on this particular hotel area. With the new business traveling trend, hotel lobbies should provide a multi-use space for casual as well as formal talks, working on laptops, plugging in various devices.
2. Personalized Spaces
It is a fact that the memory of a hotel stays with guests a long, long time if the accommodation experience is unique. With this in mind, hotel owners personalize spaces as never before. Pop-up hotels, and modular hotels are new concepts slowly gaining interest in the industry. Themed guestrooms also have a strong impact, especially when visitors can only try one at a time.
3. A Home Away From Home
More than anything, hotel rooms should provide comfort, that feeling of a home away from home. No matter how luxurious, technology friendly and weird-themed the room, coziness is a major factor to consider. Wood additions, inspired decorating items, carpets, curtains, a fireplace, a TV set and the possibility to play your guest’s favorite music- all these adds up to a memorable stay.

More extravagant entrance features in today’s emerging hotel market include large green walls, indoor waterfalls, large chandeliers and multimedia stations.”
5. Green Features
“Sustainability is a delicate issue for hotel owners, as they are doing their best to minimize short term costs. But being ahead of the game is important, which sometimes leads to innovative ideas. Over-sized windows for natural lighting, natural building materials, green walls and green roofs, recycling bins for guests, electronic water faucets, locally grown food for cooking and graywater recycling are just a few of the hotel trends for staying green.”
6. Rethinking Guestroom Configurations
“No longer is the classic bed-table-locker combo enough to make a hotel room feel inviting. In today’s world guests expect surprises and where else, but away from home. Probably why each interior in the modern hospitality industry is very different from the next. Creative offices for business travelers, interesting looking TV panels and an extra sofa next to the king-sized bed are just some of the key “ingredients” for a trendy hotel room. We’ve also seen color explosions and eclectic decor mixes, which can definitely appeal to guests wanting to experience unique accommodation.”
