In today’s challenging hospitality market, hotels, restaurants and other establishments need to optimise every aspect of their business to ensure continued success.
One great way to use the slowdown in business brought about by the Conoranvirus pandemic is to consider how you can improve the layout and design of your space.
By creating a welcoming and enticing look for your establishment, you’ll boost your chances of rejuvenating sales and reinvigorating your brand.
To do this, you need to incorporate the latest interior design trends and combine them with a unique flair and ingenuity to craft a creative, yet at the same time familiar, space for your guests.
To make the process easier, we’ve put together a list of the top interior design trends in 2020 and how you can use them to enhance your hospitality business.
The Rustic Look
Natural products such as wood, marble and stone, as well as floral and rustic patterns have become a popular part of the interior design market over recent years. They show no sign of going anywhere, so consider incorporating them into your establishment.
This trend is particularly relevant for restaurants that want to highlight their naturally flavourful dishes. The rustic look is also less neat and precise than other interior design styles, such as the monochrome look. As such, it’s ideal for hotel lobbies and other spaces where a lot of people congregate and mingle. If they move items or create disorder, it will not look as out of place in a rustic room as it would in a more modern space.
Natural materials can be less durable than manufactured products, so consider finding furniture that is finished with a natural look, but designed to handle the wear and tear that commercial furniture is exposed to on a daily basis.
Soft, pastel colours are a trendy way to express your establishment’s quirky, playful side without taking it too far. Gentle colours, such as pale pinks, blues and mint greens, offer a unique and creative alternative to dull neutral colours such as cream and beige.
Pastel colours also invoke memories of spring and the natural world, as they are the colours of some of many beautiful wildflowers. To combine pastel colours with the rustic look mentioned above, check out the work of Artist DK Macleod. His glorious Scottish landscapes are created in stunning pastel colours, making them a beautiful addition to your establishment’s walls and the perfect way to combine two popular interior design trends.
One of the more bold and daring interior design developments for 2020, textured cushions, soft furnishings and even wallpapers have become popular with a wide variety of homeowners, designers and establishments.
By using embossing techniques to add velvet or silk onto wallpaper or furnishings, upholsterers have been able to infuse even the most basic of items with a hint of luxury. If you’re keen to improve the look and feel of your establishment, without taking it too upmarket and alienating your target clientele, then using textured finishes on your soft furnishings, furniture or walls could be the perfect compromise.
Prints And Patterns
Prints and patterns have been popular for many years, but they have become a staple of the interior design market recently thanks to the rise of social media. As more homeowners and consumers are keen to share images that will get them noticed, they’ve been seeking to use prints and patterns as a unique backdrop.
For establishments that are looking to make a bold statement, bright prints and patterns are the perfect solutions. If you’re keen to show your affiliation to pop culture, then you could find tiger print cushions to represent the world’s love of the Netflix show Tiger King.
You could also use bright, neon patterns to really set off your establishment and make it look completely innovative and enticing. Alternatively, you can easily use pale coloured patterns or traditional looks, such as check or flora designs, to make a more subtle statement.
Grey Colour Schemes
Grey interiors have been fashionable for many years, and they show no signs of going anywhere. Muted, pale grey walls and flooring can be a great alternative to beige neutrals, while darker, steelier grey furnishings and embellishments can be a great way to make a statement.
When using grey for your establishment’s décor, you need to make sure that you don’t go too dark and make your space feel gloomy and inhospitable. Use light grey for any large surface, such as a wall, floor, door or countertop, and accentuate it with darker grey or another natural colour, such as deep green or an inky blue.
Reinvigorating your establishment’s appearance will help you to boost trade once it reopens after the lockdown and customers search for new venues to fill the gap where old favourites once stood. Use this list to find the interior design trends that will enhance your establishment and encourage consumers to host their future gathers and celebrations in your venue. Muted, pale grey walls, flooring, and grey wardrobes can be a great alternative to beige neutrals, while darker, steelier grey furnishings and embellishments can be a great way to make a statement.
