The interior decor of your bed and breakfast is critical to your success. You want your guests to feel cozy and welcome. You want them to feel relaxed and comfortable. You want them to enjoy the luxuries that they may not have on a daily basis.
But did you know that your interior design actually plays a larger role in your overall business plan?
Given the fact that photographs of your small hotel and all of its rooms are online, your interior design might be the reason that some guests book with you.
Here are some interior design tips to make your property shine online:
With artwork, always consider the scale of the pieces you add to any room and where it is placed.
The hues you choose are an ideal way to accent your inn and complement its personality.
If you cater to older travelers and retirees, then be sure to have accessible furniture that is easy and comfortable for everyone.
For families, be sure to include functional furniture such as sleeper sofas and portable cribs to increase sleeping space.
A coffee table can add a touch of elegance to the room, while also making it a more welcoming place to stay.
A soft chair located next to the fireplace allows your guests to better use the amenities that you provide.
These photographs will show travelers who are perusing your small hotel website that you have plenty of space for them to stay, and that your accommodations are luxurious.
Mary White suggests adding accessories to enhance the space, without going overboard.
Too many accessories appear cluttered, and too much of a theme can look kitschy, and remember your guests need space for their things.
Consider talking to a design consultant or seeking advice from other innkeepers whose styles you admire because it’s important to make sure what you select fits the look and feel of your B&B and its surroundings.
You never get a second chance to make a first impression, so initial perception and presentation will always prevail in the minds (and eyes) of your guests!
