Hiring a Hotel Interior Designer? Start here!

Beautiful interiors not only function well but create a mood or a feeling to reflect the hotel’s brand. Most people find it fun to plan designing or renovate a hotel. However, they may later realize that it’s overwhelming when the time comes to choose the right color, furniture, and other decorative pieces.  Hiring a hotel interior designer can help avoid the loss of drive and help avoid costly mistakes. Hiring the right hotel interior designer is a wise choice.

An interior designer creates the look, feel, and style of indoor spaces. They have artistic skills that help pair colors, shapes, textures, and sizes. They also have technical skills that aid them to understand building structure, building codes, wiring, and plumbing. This all comes together to create a design that fits within the physical limitations of a space. A designer handles the sourcing, receiving, and installation of paint, furniture, and everything required to complete the project.

To help you in hiring a hotel interior designer, we’ve listed five of the most important qualities that person should possess.


It’s crucial that your interior designer has vast knowledge about the field. This will ensure you get your hotel designed in a way that’s appealing, functional, and comfortable.  You will also want to hire someone with specific hospitality industry experience.  It is a niche industry with its own challenges and your hotel interior designer needs to know how to face those issues.


To design a hotel needs a keen eye for detail and this skill will be most developed in an experienced interior designer. An experienced designer will be able to figure out all potential mistakes with just one glance. They’ll know how to handle any design challenges and have inside information about where to source unique pieces no one else will have.


Professionalism is of utmost importance to provide quality service. Only a highly professional designer can create a top-notch design that will leave you awestruck with your hotel. In addition, they’ll communicate timely, and handle any third-party vendors efficiently.


You must make sure that your personality complements your prospective designer so you can work well together. Complementary personalities impact how your vision will become a reality. For example, a hotel interior designer who matches and understands your vision will communicate your brand values in its design.

Testimonials and references.

Reading testimonials can bring light to the experiences of past clients who have worked with your potential designer. Then, you can make a decision based on their testimonials. If your prospective designer has a large number of positive referrals, you can trust you’ll be satisfied with their work.
