Designers must create environments that appeal to a varied and growing clientele while providing a unique and memorable experience in today's environment. This year's design decisions are still influenced by 2022 trends, which range from digital workspaces to sustainable materials. But in 2023, a few fresh design fads are set to upend the sector and reinvent what hospitality design really is.

Designing with a focus on Biophilia andSustainability

In the hospitality sector, sustainable design is becoming more and more common. This is demonstrated by the use of eco-friendly materials like bamboo, recycled glass, and reused wood, as well as by the use of goods that are both energy and water efficient. The biophilia trend in hospitality design, which acknowledges humans' innate need for nature and interactions with other living things, has also emerged as a result of the emphasis on sustainability. Designers are incorporating plants and greenery, organic shapes and materials, natural light, and even cutting-edge technology, like smart glass, which can regulate the amount of light and heat entering a room, to create more natural, comfortable, and productive settings.

Designers are employing a variety of strategies to create these distinctive experiences, such commissioning local artists to paint murals or upcycling materials to make custom furniture. Local design movements have economic advantages for hoteliers as well because they let them cut expenses while still giving visitors a memorable experience.

Embracing Authenticity

Embracing Authenticity

One of the newest trends in hospitality design for 2023 is to give visitors a genuine taste of the local culture of their travel location. This necessitates incorporating real materials and details that represent the local history and traditions. Local details may provide a completely immersive experience that enhances the guest's trip, from the stones used in landscaping to the textural intricacies of interior walls and furnishings.

Oaga Art Resort in the Maldives serves as an excellent example of this strategy. The resort offers a variety of immersive activities selected by local and outside artisans and craftsmen, as well as dining and spa experiences with Maldivian influences. Oaga Art Resort, a recent addition to the Maldivian hospitality sector, is an all-inclusive refuge that draws inspiration from the country's rich past, present, and customs.

The Function of Calming Color Schemes and Earthy Tone

The use of relaxing, neutral colors and earthy tones has become more prevalent in modern hospitality design, as seen in the walls, flooring, fabrics, and furnishings of many modern hospitality rooms. This makes the area more large and tranquil, which lowers stress levels. A harmonious and relaxed ambiance can be achieved by combining warm, rich natural colors with softer neutrals, such as Viva Magenta, Pantone's color of the year, with Sage Green, Beige, and Brown. The use of gentle colors and earthy tones in contemporary hospitality design fosters a welcoming and cozy atmosphere.

Changing Hospitality Design to Meet the Growing Demand from Digital Nomads

With an incredible 49% growth between 2019 and 2020, the number of digital nomads globally has soared to almost 35 million in 2022. As remote and digital employees replace traditional short-term business and conference travelers in 2023, this trend is anticipated to continue, having an impact on hospitality design. Hospitality businesses should utilize strategic design to entice this expanding population of digital natives to stay longer and spend more money while they are there. Effective ways for hotel operators to better serve the needs of the digital nomad market include simple design improvements like divided sleeping and working areas in rooms, more wardrobe space, flexible suites and adjoining rooms that can be transformed into private offices, fitness rooms, or lounges, as well as comfortable coworking spaces and improved communal areas.
