Anyone who sets up a bed and breakfast business will probably consider the interior décor of their establishment and try to create a cohesive theme throughout. This helps guests to relax in their new environment. What sort of styles could B&B owners create to keep their guests happy?
Types of Décor
Interior décor can broadly be broken down into two main types: traditional and contemporary. The former might encompass long-established styles such as art deco or art nouveau, where the fixtures and fittings have distinctive geometric shapes or late 19th century nature themes.
A traditional style tends to include more ‘stuff’ than modern styles, which are usually minimalistic with clean lines. The age and look of the furniture will lean towards one or the other, too, with modern furniture tending to be more functional, sharper and less ornate.
In addition to traditional and contemporary, of course you also have the eclectic style of interior décor. Rooms are likely to include a motley collection of items if they’re eclectic, but if it’s done well, those items won’t necessarily look out of place together.
It can be fun to add a personal touch to interior décor by getting creative. Potential projects for owners of accommodation include stencilling walls, making chair back covers or painting old pieces of furniture.
You can also jazz up shop-bought furniture by mixing and matching with third-party products. On IKEA Karlstad sofas, for instance, Ikea Karlstad sofa covers look great, and anything that makes furniture look more individualized is a good thing.
Special Themes & Relaxing Colors
B&B owners often choose a theme they enjoy to decorate their accommodation with. If it’s artists, they might have a Monet room or a Van Gogh room. Or in a literary place it could be a Keats room and a Shelley room. A few related items typically decorate the room.
If a B&B is right on the coast, it’s sometimes a good idea to extend the coastal feel into the room, so there’ll be light blue, sandy tans or off-white colors and tactile furniture with complementary beach-like textures.
Relaxing hues are generally a good idea in B&B rooms, rather than fiery reds or fussy patterns that jar the vision of guests and give color to their nightmares.
