Trends are changing quickly and we are seeing an increased technology adoption, including customer personalisation and a focus on self service.

Other challenges include alternatives like Airbnb, economic uncertainty, changing consumer demands, and managing expectations for hygiene. What is becoming clear, is that these environments going forward need to consider their ability to be adaptable in use and more consideration needs to be given to hygienic design as a paramount factor.

With all of these challenges we are best to prepare ourselves with design that can be put through its paces.

“We’re seeing the blurring of spaces, with current homely themes starting to merge with hospitality trends,” says Nina. “To create a comfortable setting, we’re seeing the introduction of brighter, more tropical tones and a move towards darker hues within hospitality interiors. And this trend stretches throughout hotels, bars, cafes and restaurants.”
