The destination is chosen, the passage in the hands… and the stay? Do you know where to stay? And what type of hotel room to choose? Understand the existing types and the difference between them!
By the time of travel, many decisions need to be made to make everything go the way you planned. You have to choose the location of the trip, the days you will be away, the tickets and the hotel. There are definitely points to be aware of!
As if that were not enough, you still need to choose the type of hotel room you will be staying with. It is at this time that doubt arises. After all, there are the standard, master, deluxe rooms and the double, single and shared rooms.
But do not worry! To help you, we will explain each of these rooms to you and show the differences between them. Here we go?
Room types by number of beds
The first and best-known categorization of hotel rooms is by the number of beds (or their type).
The single category rooms are ideal for those who want to travel alone or for those who want more privacy in the group’s travel. Also known as a single room or SGL, these rooms have only one single bed.
As its name makes clear, it is a room for two (or more) singles. The twin room , standard nomenclature, has two or more single beds. In some cases, these rooms may offer up to five single beds, but do not confuse them with dormitory rooms (which we will explain later).
The double rooms have only one bed but are double. She is perfect for the lovebirds who are traveling together and want to be together every second. In some cases, these rooms may have an extra bed for small children.
Typically found in hostels, dormitory-style rooms offer several beds, including bunk beds and, in some cases, Griliches. These rooms are much cheaper than other hotel types but are worse for privacy.
Room types by characterization
So far, we have explained hotel room types by the number of beds, which is what everyone is used to. But in hotel chains there are characterizations that go beyond the number of beds: they define the furniture, bathrooms and all the details of the room. It’s time to meet them!
The simplest hotel rooms are known as Standard, which has the most basic services for its guests.
By default, these rooms come with a bed, nightstand, lamp, wardrobe and a small table, and a private bathroom. The classification of these rooms meets the view of the place. On beaches, Standard rooms are without sea view. In cities, these rooms are facing the bottom.
Just above the Standard are the rooms categorized as Master. The space of these rooms, which are also called executives, is larger than the previous one, which in itself becomes a differential. However, the price is a little higher.
Its main difference with the previous one is its location, either on the street view or on higher floors. In this category, it is common to find rooms with a sofa and chairs.
As its name implies, Deluxe Rooms are sought after for those who don’t want a trip. Whether in service or space, these are the most expensive – and best – rooms in any hotel.
You can find accommodations with doors that separate environments – obviously larger than the others -, the best view of the hotel and even bathtubs may be available.
Always remember that the Standard, Master and Deluxe categories can be single or married. The amount of beds here is not the determinant, but what is offered to guests.
Meeting with family or friends is always important. Either to catch up on their lives or just to enjoy their company and have fun together. In general, a cafe or a restaurant are the preferable options to talk and / or eat due to its practicality. However, why not do it at home and turn those meetings into even more special moments?
The key to home meetings is that they are warmer, more comfortable, intimate and valuable. Therefore, they will allow you to establish a better connection with your family and friends, thus strengthening your relationships. Here are the best spaces in the home to share great moments with your guests:
The meeting space par excellence in any house, since it is a spacious room that has the essential furniture for all types of activity. You can sit and chat while enjoying some drinks and snacks, have fun with a few board games, get the best dance steps, watch movies together or sing in karaoke.
Also, some additional details such as playing with different light intensities, can make sure you have special moments.
For some reason there is the phrase: “food unites people”. Therefore, this space is one of the warmest to start creating unforgettable moments with family and friends. Cooking for your guests is satisfactory, however, if you invite them to participate in some tasks, you will further strengthen the ties of their relationship and closeness. Remember that the heart is reached through the stomach.
Also, you can let them know that you are preparing your favorite dish or complement. This will make them feel that they are important to you.
The dining room environment turns your meals into special moments. It is the right place for each attendee to be part of the conversations and fun. A large and comfortable table will serve to make you feel at ease.
In the same way, place all the necessary implements within the reach of your guests. Remember that hospitality speaks well of you and will make them consider themselves valued.
Having a kitchen-dining room will give you the best of the previous two points. Guests who wish may participate actively in the preparation of food, while others will be part of the conversation without feeling excluded.
If your house has a terrace, or even a small balcony, you can make it a perfect place for outdoor relaxation. This will be a place where you and your guests will feel calm, comfortable and ready to enjoy great moments. Thus, your relationship will be more stable and reliable.
To create an atmosphere of peace you only need a small table, chairs (padded, to offer comfort) and dim lighting for the nights.
Although in the living room you usually have television or other electronic devices, having a room dedicated to entertainment is a plus. This room will be dedicated to the recreation and fun of all guests, in an environment of greater freedom.
You can replace the classic furniture with a thick carpet and many cushions; Just don’t forget a couple of coffee tables to save snacks and drinks.
This is just the beginning of what you can do to have those special moments with your friends or loved ones anywhere in your home. Take advantage of each space to create unforgettable stories.
There are many ways to make a house look like a magazine, without the need to invest so much money. This time we will talk about one of the most popular trends for decoration that you probably know, but here you can see it in detail.
What is DIY?
DIY is the abbreviation of the English expression “Do It Yourself” that translates as “do it yourself” and basically, as the name implies, it refers to doing things with our own hands, helping us with some tools.
The variety of things you can do DIY is wide, from gifts, house ornaments, party decorations and even furniture. DIY goes as far as creativity allows, therefore, observe around you what resources and materials are at your disposal and turn them into a work of art or something useful for your home.
DIY has great benefits that go beyond beautifying a space, among them are:
Recycle : DIY projects can be easily carried out with recycled or reused materials. One of the funniest challenges of doing something for yourself is to get creative with the materials you will use. Therefore, you can use things that you have in your home and that you no longer use to give them new life with the project you have chosen.
Saving : recycling materials coupled with not paying someone else’s labor will help reduce the amount of money you invest to have your final product. However, keep in mind that you will have to invest time in carrying out this activity. Some projects that include painting or pasting will even require extra time, so try to be available before starting to see the results that day.
Repair : DIY is also a good option to repair broken or old things in your home, from an old table that with a touch of paint you can turn into a decorative vintage element, to restore a wooden piece of furniture. On the internet you will find many videos and DIY repair tutorials.
Materials you can recycle
You can practically make DIY projects with any material, but here are some of the most common ideas to decorate your home.
Guacales and wooden pallets
These loading tools have been a success in DIY projects, because it is wood that is used very little and can be used. In a second use it can work to make furniture, shelves and even bed bases. To get it, go to the supply center of your town or to the nearest greengrocers, those in charge usually sell them at a very low price or even give them away. You only need to clean, sand and paint them in any color you like, or varnish them to maintain a more rustic style.
We usually keep the strings or throw them away after using them, however, the number of things you can do with them to decorate your home is amazing. There are ideas for different thicknesses and lengths. The most common is to use them to line cardboard boxes or old tires and convert them into seats or containers with style. You can also use them to hang shelves or make rugs.
The tweezers have become a great ally of DIY, especially those of wood that, in addition to their versatility, offer a rustic style to the decoration. You can use them to assemble a notepad or even if you use a very resistant glue you can place them on some surface and use them to hang accessories or garments. Another idea is to paste them on some empty frame or on some wire or rope on the wall and leaning on them, hang up some photos to create novel portraits.
Many times we have clothes or sheets that we no longer use, but the fabric is in good condition. In this case you can use it to cover cushions or even redecorate other clothes, everything will depend on the amount of fabric you have.
Decorate your home just the way you like it, with less money and being friendly to the environment. Do you already have in mind what your next DIY project will be? Let’s do it!
