When a stay away feels like a stay at home

There has been a real shift in interior design of boutique hotels in particular, to give them the look and feel of a home, rather than a sterile, modern hotel environment as we’ve seen in the past.

With people travelling more and more for business and for pleasure, hoteliers are seeing the value in creating more personalised spaces to appeal to the seasoned traveller.

Sourceable.net quotes Hotel Chatter as calculating Australia’s hotels at 2540 currently, with many more under construction. Hotels are also seeing increased occupancy, meaning more people are travelling more often, and many are seeking the comforts of home.

“The comforts of home away from home such as oversized beds, large walk in showers, plush lounges, preferred pillows selection and a personalised message rate highly on trip advisor,” interior designer Agatha Ozhylovski told Sourceable.

“Consumers want experiences when they travel, not empty style statements. It’s about capturing the unique essence of the exterior envelope and its story, as opposed to design hotels that look the same.”

At Beadles we believe good design should be attainable for anyone, and if you can be surrounded by beautiful things while you travel, all the more reason to plan a great getaway.
