03 Oct How to Transition Your Hotel from Summer to Fall
Take down the summer décor and put it back into storage because fall is here! The dropping of the temperature and the changing of the leaves signal a most timely transformation for your hotel.
Transitioning seasonal décors for your hotel might sound like a massive undertaking. It doesn’t have to be! In fact, fall is one of the easiest and most effortless seasons to decorate for.
The keyword to fall decorating is ‘cozy’. Think about long mornings lounging in bed, knitted cardigans, hot chocolate, and smores by the campfire. The season screams for comfort and that’s exactly what you have to translate into your hotel aesthetic.
Here are some easy things you can try:
Transition to cozy linens.
The fall season is not just about the visuals; it’s also about the textures. There’s no better way to usher in the season into your hotel than with warm linens for beds and bathrooms.
Terrycloth robes in fall colors, thick, fleece-textured blankets, and quilt-type comforters are a sure-fire hit for the season. Remember: layers are your best friends this time of year – so think plush throw blankets, quilts, and knitted pillows.
Additionally, as the nights get colder, giving your guests warm bed linen options will go a long way. For example, keep the blankets on the beds but make sure your duvet insert is ready for those cooler nights.
Make use of seasonal produce.
Seasonal produce isn’t just for the kitchen. They belong on your mantels and table centers as well. Arrange them in baskets or decorative plates. Gourds, pumpkins and squashes may be your first choice, but don’t overlook the wide range of fall fruits like figs, apples, pomegranates, pears, and carrots.
If you do have a kitchen in your hotel, consider incorporating these foods into your menu to further integrate the fall theme.
Warmer lighting helps bring the season to life.
You don’t need a massive campfire or even an actual fireplace to give your guests that comfortable, warm feeling. Channel the colors of a crackling fire with the right lighting setup. Go for soft, muted ambers. Light some candles and dim any bright white lights.
Think of the beautiful colors in a fall sunset and infuse them into the lighting throughout your hotel.
Think about comfort.
While people go to hotels year round to relax, there is something about the fall season that calls for extra comfort. Now that allergy season has passed, consider putting down pillows back on the bed.
It doesn’t take a major change to make your guests feel at home in your hotel during the fall season.
