Whether you run a budget motel or a 5-star resort, you’re probably searching for ways to make your hotel more luxurious (and possibly charge a higher price).
But, you might not have the money to pay for marble countertops and luxury hardwood floors.
Don’t worry – there are some things you can do to make your hotel feel more luxurious on a tight budget. Here are just a few hotel decor ideas to consider!
You might think that your colorful parrot paintings add visual interest to your hotel room, but the trend in luxury hotels is toward the minimalist. If your hotel rooms feature a myriad of different hues and shades, consider toning things down. Whether it’s removing some art or painting your walls in a neutral shade, adding some minimalist class to your hotel rooms is a fairly easy task. Check out these luxury hotel rooms for some design inspiration!
Stop paying so much attention to the individual elements of your rooms and pay more attention to how you’re illuminating them! Even the finest luxury hotel rooms look drab in unflattering light. The simple action of switching your light bulbs out for a different color can make a huge difference in the way your hotel looks and feels. Also, consider accent lighting for your headboards and other visually interesting features!
Just like with your lighting plan, some simple odor control can make a huge difference in your hotel rooms. After working in your hotel for so long, you might be accustomed to the various smells of your business, but that doesn’t mean that your guests can’t smell the cigarette from the smoking room next to them or the mildew scent in the bathroom.
To control the smell of your hotel room, use an odor control system like the T-Cell, which spreads designer fragrances and odor neutralizers throughout your space. Click here for more information!
The bed is really the focal point of your hotel rooms, which is why if you should put effort into any hotel room feature, you should put effort into your beds. An easy way to refresh your hotel bed design is to buy some elegant throw pillows! A bright, metallic or even neutral pillow is a cheap and impactful addition to your hotel beds.
While we’re on the subject of throw pillows, it’s even more important that you’re providing guests with high-quality hotel linens that are impeccably clean. While you might not think they can tell, your guests will be able to distinguish between the feel of low-quality textiles and high-quality hotel linens.
A good night of sleep is the primary reason that a guest is choosing to stay in your hotel. Don’t jeopardize their experience by cutting costs with cheap linens!
Luxury hotels are famous for offering welcome gifts. And while you may not be able to provide designer soaps to your guests upon arrival, that doesn’t mean that you can’t make their stay a little more special by starting it off with a gift! Chocolates, tea, coffee, mints and magazines are just a few inexpensive welcome gift options.
While we’re on the subject of inexpensive gifts, we have a gift for you: a free quote on hospitality linen services!
