Design Ideas for the Modern Innkeeper

Bed and Breakfast SignThe concept of the “Bed and Breakfast” rose to popularity in United States during the 1800’s to provide respite and sustenance to miners, prospectors, and other pioneers as they made their way across the country in the development of the American West. Even as competition increased as more inns, lodges and hotels were built in the 1900’s, B&B’s remained popular and was seen as an affordable accommodation for people traveling through small towns or in areas that weren’t developed.

In the 21st century, B&B’s offer a cozy and accommodating alternative to the corporate hotel or motel − and are often found in locations that offer historical, leisure or small town attractions. For most travelers, the unique touches that distinguish a B&B were clearly the primary reason for selecting this lodging option. Words like “charm,” ambience,” “quaintness,” and “atmosphere” are often used to describe this intangible appeal.

5 Uses For Area Rugs For Innkeepers

Whether long and narrow, short and wide or one that covers the entire floor surface, area rugs do so much more than simply cover the floor. InnStyle, the “one stop shop” for innkeepers, carries a huge selection of area rugs of all shapes, styles and purposes. Any innkeeper is sure to find the area rug that perfectly suits their needs, such as:

  1. Change the entire appearance of a room: Standard rectangular rugs provide both utility and elegance while circular and octagonal rugs add a unique look. Quickly and economically change the “theme” of your space just by adding or replacing the area rug.
  2. Add warmth and safety to a bathroom: Replace the floor towel outside the shower or tub with a small absorbent rug that has a “sticky” bottom for safety. Use an area rug as a rug runner in front of the bathroom vanity for warmth and elegance. Place an area rug at an angle in the center of the bathroom to make it an interesting focal point.
  3. Have your foyer make a statement: The right area rug placed in the foyer can speak volumes about what your guests can expect and really make guests entering your home feel welcome. Change the rug seasonally to keep repeat guests guessing, “What’s different?”
  4. Spice up a dining room: Place the area rug in such a way that it adds flair and provides separation if blending the kitchen and dining room decor. In larger dining areas or in eating areas separate from the kitchen, use area rugs to add elegance or a dramatic flair.
  5. Make your guest rooms memorable: Area rugs are excellent style upgrades and are affordable options for floors that need updating when there’s no budget for a flooring makeover. Add style to an otherwise bland room, or modify the decor of a room designed toward an “aging” trend.
