Minimal, Clean and Timeless…
The current trend in room design is just that!
Design demands for today’s hotel need to be durable, maintenance friendly and appealing to all demographics. They need to be trendy and hip enough for a younger crowd, and have a comfortable and cozy appeal for older, more seasoned clientele. Hotel operators and developers require more longevity for their inventory in todays economy than ever before.
Creating a space that is technologically and environmentally savvy is also a key element in design. Today’s travelers with iPads, laptops and smart phones require ease and convenience of connecting and charging.

Increased competition, market saturation and rising expectations of visitors mean that hotels must not only widen their choices and raise their standards of service, but also invest in interior design. Currently, guests expect a hotel to not only meet the basic requirements for accommodation, but guarantee comfort, relaxation and a pleasurable stay. Sophisticated, well-equipped bathrooms, tasteful and prestigious decor, and the use of sumptuous materials raise the standards of a facility and provide fond memories of that hotel.
Bathroom areas in hotels are usually small. Accumulated clutter and the “necessaries” in such a space can cause the decorative elements to be lost, overwhelmed, and obscured. Therefore, a minimalist style is ideal for hotel bathrooms – with a strong, clear accent. Small bathrooms prove themselves with friendly materials and larger scales; large mirrors filling an entire wall or placed on two walls, polished and shiny materials, and decorative lighting highlight the nuances of space.

Recycling for Interiors
We have all seen the old-dresser-made-to-look-new by re-painting it. But what about some more creative and innovative ways to furnish and decorate your home, while recycling materials that otherwise would end up in a land fill? Some of these pieces can be accomplished by the do-it yourself crowd, and some might need more shop skills that the ordinary person has.
Take a look at some of these pieces:
Here we have a modern chair whose seat and back is made from old CDs (probably might need some shop skills for this one).
Old ball point pens used to create a chandelier.
Old leather belts used to create flooring, but could also be applied to walls.
Wind chime created using glass rings cut from bottles.
Old entertainment center (for the giant TVs no one uses anymore) repurposed into a play kitchen for the kids.
And to reuse the giant TV, turn it into a fish tank.
Here is another chair, but this one is made from plastic water bottles.
Another chair requiring shop skills, but a great reuse for old shopping carts.
A chair made from old hard sided luggage.
A tiered movie/TV room made from wooden pallets.
Teacups turned into pendant lights.
As you can see, there are plenty of ideas out there to help you get those creative juices flowing. Have fun creating!
