Top Tips for Hotel Room Design

When designing a Hotel, you must spend a significant amount of time focusing on the rooms. Guests will care about aspects like the facilities and location, but if the rooms are not up to scratch then they will look elsewhere.

The Hotel rooms act as their base for their stay so they should always be attractive, comfortable, and welcoming. There are a few key aspects to keep in mind when decorating a Hotel room so read on for a few tips which should help you to design rooms that tick all of the boxes and make your Hotel more appealing to visitors.

Comfortable Beds

The bed will be the focal point of the room and the most important feature. You will want your guests to be able to enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep each night, so you need to make sure that the bed is high-quality.

This means investing in a good:

  • Bed frame
  • Mattress
  • Duvet and pillows
  • Sheets

Air Con

Air conditioning is important particularly if your Hotel is located in a hot area. You can get these systems installed and maintained by searching for companies in your local area, such as the best solutions for air conditioning Orlando can offer.

This will help to create a cool and calming feel in the rooms which could also help the guests to get to sleep each night.

Decorative Style

It is usually best to opt for a simple decorative style so that guests of all ages and backgrounds can feel comfortable. Neutral colors and a few art pieces will suffice, and you should avoid trying to make the room look too stylish.


Lighting is a powerful tool in interior design so you need to carefully consider this aspect.

The room should be well lit so that there are no dark and dingy areas and you may want to consider accent lighting to establish the mood and atmosphere in the room.


Security should always be a priority when designing a Hotel.

In terms of the rooms, you can enhance the security with a high-quality keycard entry system, by having a safe in every room and making sure that all doors and windows can easily be locked.


A Hotel room must be comfortable and functional so you will need more than just a bed in a room. You will need to make sure that there is room for customers to easily move around their Hotel room, but you may also need items including:

  • A wardrobe
  • Bedside table
  • Desk
  • Chest of drawers
  • TV stand
  • Mini fridge


To me Hospitality is Art. It is like the painter that uses a combination of colors to create a picture. And we all will have a different perspective on how we view the finished product. The key is to bring out the commonalities that tell us that this is an experience we want to share with others.

Creative art is a great way to make your hotel stand out. You can use guest pictures or your hotel team members’ pictures with their permission and convert them into beautiful oil paintings.

Every room needs careful attention when you are designing a Hotel. Nobody will stay in a Hotel with poorly designed rooms no matter how great the facilities are, so this must be a priority during the design stage.

You then need to make sure that the website contains high-quality images of the rooms and that the descriptions are detailed and clear. You should also encourage guests to leave reviews so that other people can get an idea of what the rooms are like from a non-bias source.
