Achieve the Best Interior Design for your Hotel/Home with these Tips

There is a uniqueness and an air of class when you put in effort into the interior of your property; in fact you do not have to explain to people what the style is. The designs will speak volumes to any of your guests according to what you chose to do with the living space.

Here is how you can easily achieve the best interior design for your hotel or home.

Identify The Styles

Depending on what you want to do, the first step is always to pick a certain style of design that you will go with. It is important to not clutter so many different styles in one place, the design comes off-handed, uncluttered and confusing to the eye. Unless of course you are aiming for an abstract, design blocking theme then you will be on the right track.

Color Fusion

Dull colors tend to make a room look so drab and boring, but a couple of bright palettes here and there will bring out the best of your design. This is usually one of the most important steps in interior design and it seems very easy to achieve; the only issue here would be that it is not easy as it looks. You cannot pull off different color schemes unless you know how easily the different pops of color fuse or else you will have so much in one making for a disastrous stain on designs.


Every well-designed room needs that one item that draws gasps of admiration from your guests, something that will easily start a conversation and at the same time enhance the beauty of the room. You can use pieces of art, chandeliers or the vibrancy of well-placed flowers among many things as long as it will stand out beautifully.

Create Character

Giving most of the rooms in your property different design themes give them a sense of character especially if it is a hotel room. In most hotels; rooms, suites or floors have a very unique naming to them and this makes them stand out, so why not make the design unique to complement the name? An example would be; the Elgon suite, the detail works have to bring the character with a number of pieces of the culture of people who live around. Play around with the theme to bring out a good an appealing warm character.


Nothing becomes confusing as seeing overdone interior designs, it comes off too strong and not as inviting as you intended it to be. When creating a beautiful design plan for your home/ hotel, make sure to remember that the simplest things always leave the best mark; a little splash of color here and there and not too much of it or maybe a few intricate art pieces in the room will bring out the vision you were working to.


Let your design throughout easily breeze into the whole property. If you can do this, it gives the whole place a sense of rhythm that flows, giving your guests a sense of understanding without you having to explain what you were trying to do in the first place.

Balance It Out

Furniture is the best way you can finish off the look without looking like you tried too hard. This means the pieces you buy have to help balance the designs in the house. The fit, shapes and sizes should be proportional to what style you chose to go with. For example, you cannot choose to go with an African styled living room then fill it with modern futuristic furniture, it will stand out as a sore spot on the whole interior.

The most important step to remember is that; just because it is expensive doesn’t mean it shows taste or class. Infact, you might fill the room with very pricy pieces and it ends up looking cheap or tacky. Do not be constrained by finances because you can get very well done less priced items that will bring out the full taste of your designs, even more than the expensive ones. At the same time you have to remember that some of the good pieces are expensive, but they are worth it.
