4 Hotel Features Ideal for Home Remodels
Hotels include unique features to help the locations stand out and cater directly to guests. If you love the hotel experience while on vacation, then consider implementing some hotel features into your personal bedroom.
The upgrades add protection, make your life easier to manage, and include a lot ideal features for your everyday bedroom use.
1. Built-In Wall Safes
A common feature for some hotels is a wall safe. Ideal for money and valuables, a wall safe will add benefits to your personal bedroom. When installed directly in a wall, you can prevent someone from simply taking the safe out of the home. The wall safe design makes it easy to hide the safe behind a painting or another wall decoration.
Use the bedroom safe for important documents, jewelry, and other valuable items. You can select a safe with a digital pin pad so you can simply input a code instead of relying on keys or combinations.
2. Access Control
One of the signature parts of a hotel is the access control built into rooms. Hotels often use key cards or fobs so guests can securely enter their rooms. For your bedroom at home, you have similar options. You could choose to install access control to the bedroom door. Instead of carrying a key card all the time, your access may include a key code you manually enter.
Along with the bedroom door, consider using access control for areas like a walk-in closet or master bathroom. With access control, you will have a lot of privacy and another layer of protection for your home.
Modern access control features allow you to connect phone apps to the access control system. So if you carry your phone toward the door, the door will detect the phone and unlock the door as needed.
For back-up options, you could also include a standard key lock on any of the doors.
3. Multi-Room Stereo
As you go from the hotel lobby into an elevator and through the halls of a hotel, you may notice the same music through all of these areas. Many hotels rely on multi-room stereo systems to provide guests with continuous music. You can create the same effect in your home with a multi-room stereo installation.
Along with your bedroom, have speakers installed in hallways and other rooms, including the kitchen and living room. The whole home audio allows you to enjoy seamless music options and listen to news radio and sports broadcasts.
The audio could also link to televisions to provide TV audio through multiple rooms of the home. For example, if you’re watching a live sports game or concert, the audio can play through the home as you prepare food or go to use the bathroom.
4. Universal Remote Systems
Hotels like to keep things simple and easy for guests. Many rooms feature universal remotes to control multiple elements in the room, including the television. You also have the option to set up an advanced universal remote system for your own bedroom.
Modern remotes include voice access to easily switch between cable television, streaming options, and video games. Access specific programs in an instant and personalize your remote to meet your needs.
Some of the more advanced touchscreen remotes include home thermostat options and connections to security systems like video doorbells. Link the remote to the lighting in the room, including dimmer options and automatic lighting, to help wake up in the mornings.
