We all have an old habit of neglecting. It's totally humane to do that. Negligence is a nirvana while ignorance a bliss. One of the parts of your hotel that you have left alone, or probably treated like your ex-beau is the bathroom. Yes, the bathroom which has been cursed to be plain-Jane and appear like 'Ugly Betty', has finally found its niche.
Say goodbye to old fashioned, 'boring' bathrooms and say hello to new, exciting and posh hotel bathrooms. It's high time to revamp your bathroom to a part of the hotel room that is as appealing as the rest of it. Fresh out of the oven, we have 9 exciting ideas to make your hotel bathroom posh.
1. Even the cavemen never liked those bathroom mats.
Just like you, even we hate the rubbers! Rubber bathroom mats have become passe, among other obsolete bathroom floor accessories. For your regular bathroom to turn to an appealing, posh hotel bathroom you need a new set of mats. Get those rubber mats out of there and replace them with Persian wool-blended mats.
Replace the frumpy old rubber mats with new and sleek wool-blended Aztec bathroom mats. It doesn't just set your hotel bathroom apart from other 'vanilla' bathrooms but adds a bit of style and detail to your bathroom floor. Easy to wash and reusable, the colors and patterns in the mats will find it's full bloom when faded.
2. Mirror, mirror on the wall.
We know that mirrors are one of the most essential parts of the bathroom wall, but they need a serious revamp, just like every other bathroom fitting. Yes, we agree that wooden frames are quite decent for the looking mirror in the bathroom, and they might do the trick if used optimally.
But, think about carved wood, instead of wooden biddings, or maybe a stainless-steel circumference for a round mirror. It is among the most used accessories in your bathroom, so why not make it the center of attraction.
3. Monogram- it's always good branding.
We're sure that you've spent a bomb on that hotel monogram, so why not flaunt it. Etch monograms to the bathroom fitting, shower curtains, towels, towel rods, basically everywhere that you can.
A recent poll conducted by Hyatt® has shown that customers prefer hotels which add monograms to their bathroom accessories. So, why not cash on to this opportunity t give the customers exactly what they want - good branding.
4. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder of organization.
Yes, your lifelong wait has come to an end. You're OCD for arrangement and organization has finally found its use. Put that OCD to good use, arrange and rearrange the accessories in your bathroom. Make sure that everything is kept in it's the right place. (You won't find that hard, we're positive.)
Cleanliness should be your primary objective and proper organization should be next. Remember, that you have competition that is hot on your heels, so make sure you set yourself apart from the crowd. Like chalk and cheese go: bathroom and untidy have a similar story.
5. Light 'em up!
Oh, you like those incandescent bulbs because of how bright they are?! Or maybe you have an undying love for those energy saving lamps! We have a term for you: 'Old Fashioned'. Please, do your hotel bathroom a big favor by replacing those old bulbs.
We'd advise you to hang a small chandelier and add a few table lamps as well. Please, do not stop yourself from experimenting. Add these and in return add luxury to your hotel bathroom.
6. Monochrome and Pastels.
One great idea is to use all-white marble in your hotel bathroom. This shade of marble can be then coupled with grey and black wallpapers to give it a great monochromatic feel. Give those guests a taste of the 70's that they'll never forget.
Pro-tip: Try and avoid bright colors in your hotel's bathroom. Add a few pastel shades to the floor and walls and let the lights do the magic for you. White and grey bathrooms have the most elegant look and are the latest trend.
7. What's in a view? - Apparently, everything!
One aspect where most of us miss out is the view from the bathroom. It's merely not a place for what it was used earlier. Now, tempt your customers to an amazing view out of the bathroom window.
If you're worried about exposure, install sun-proof windows and waterproof drapes. Let your guests treat themselves to an astonishing scenic beauty or a cityscape. Add detailing to the window panes and frames.
8. Let's sit where it was never expected to.
Include seating in your bathroom, for guests who'd like to dress up near a mirror, or would like to pamper themselves with a nice pedicure. Traditionally, a bathroom missed on all these luxuries and lacked luster.
Not anymore, include chairs, dressing stools and sitting couches in your bathroom and let it sweep everyone entering it, from the first moment itself. Not only does it add to the overall appeal, but makes your hotel bathroom a place to spend some quality time in it.
9. Check out those cabinets!!
Now, that you've got an amazing bathroom floor, walls, wallpapers, and stunning lights, it's time to work on those cabinets. Paint the cabinets and make sure that they match the drapes and the walls. Blending pastel shades, like cobalt blue, grey, white and grey can never go wrong.
Bonus: Get inspired by kitchen-styled, fragrance-infused wooden cabinets with a see-through a glass, and make sure that all the essentials are included in them. Adding a small book-rack for the nerdy guests can be a win-win for both your hotel and the guests.
