Here are some of the design material trends that experts expect to see this year.
The New Year brings new trends to the world of design, and this is certainly true for hotel design. According to design experts and leaders in the hotel industry, here are some of the major design material trends you can expect to see in 2019.
Wood tones are expected to increase in popularity this year with lighter tones arriving on the scene to replace the traditional mahogany. Oak will continue to be a top favorite for designers, as a variety of new finishes can be applied to it. Expect to see wood utilized in flooring, wall paneling, reception desks, and lobby furniture.
2) Cork Acoustic Panels
Traditional cork has emerged as a leading choice for hotel paneling amongst designers. This popularity can be attributed to the aesthetic appeal and functionality of cork as a building material. Due to its high versatility, expect to see cork panels popping up in guestrooms, food and beverage areas, and other high-traffic spaces.
Concrete is also expected to become a popular material for tiling countertops and floors. Concrete is favored by designers due to its urban ruggedness and extreme durability. While bars have long featured concrete elements, expect this building design material to begin infiltrating workspaces, eating areas, and fitness centers.
These are some of the major design material trends that you can expect to see in the hotel industry this year. Are you looking to incorporate the newest design trends into your building this year?
