When it comes to design trends within the hotel industry, designers often take inspirational cues from residential design. From residential design the trends permeate through workplace design, restaurant design, and hotel design. With the impact of COVID-19 being felt in every aspect of life, current design trends are in a state of evolution as designers work to ensure that form meets function in a way that embraces the whole human experience in a healthier, safer manner. With such evolution comes new innovations in areas and perspectives that we may not have necessarily considered.
Here are the three imaginative design trends for you to consider for your hotel:

With materiality comes the juxtaposition of textures and layering of patterns. Today’s design trends are continuing to push the cultural envelope including the use of patterns and shapes from countries around the world. When paired with more woven textures such as rattan or unfinished woods and found objects, you create a sophisticated, warm, and engaging design aesthetic that your guests will fully embrace as welcoming and relaxing.

In other areas such as fitness centres and guest rooms, what does spatial adaptability look like? Are we eliminating some casegood pieces to replace them with small in-room fitness options or spa services? Thinking of how we can make guestrooms multi-purpose spaces is a great area for opportunity in the design industry.
As we continue to push forward, it will be exciting to see how these design trends continue to impact the industry. One thing is for certain, these three design trends are here to stay for a while!
