Today, hotels are more than just buildings with rooms and beds, it slowly evolves into a space for arts to be filled with paintings, sculptures and other artworks as décor. Hoteliers are thinking even farther outside the frame, installing art in the most unexpected of ways and challenging guests to think more deeply about their experience. Art has become a fundamental, rather than ornamental, element of hotel design.
Art becomes part of the package and experience hotel offers, and to be fair, it does makes sense. Since staying in a hotel may start to feel like spending the night in an art museum, travelers with a tight schedule who can’t squeeze in a day to visit local art galleries can witness the art local to that specific hotel. This way, local artists can also showcase their works in a way that their masterpieces ‘visit’ the tourists.
Art decor is not just being displayed in your hotel room for ornamental purposes, but rather as a hoteliers’ marketing strategy. According to The New York Times, installing art in the most unexpected of ways challenges guests to think more deeply about their experience at a hotel.
The rise of artist hotels and boutique hotels are more fast-paced today than ever. Some hotels are letting the paintings on their walls speak for themselves and be their identifying difference among others.
Owners of hotels could have a hard time choosing and buying artworks for their businesses. Thanks to art consultants, telling their brand’s story through art is easier, as well as choosing the pieces that are relatable to their guests and complementing to their interior in general.
Here are some points to consider that could help you decide better and know more when it comes to buying artworks for your hotel:
