    Hamilton is set to stand out from the crowd at Sleep 2015. The company is seeing a rise in demand from small to medium ‘Boutique’ hotels for its electrical wiring accessories and Mercury® lighting control and multi-room audio systems – all of which will be showcased at the Business Design Centre 25-26 November 2015.

    Boutique Hotels, also referred to as lifestyle or design hotels, are unique in interior design, architecture and theme, and are often historic. Essentially a stay in a Boutique Hotel is a lifestyle experience.

    Gavin Williams, Marketing Manager for Hamilton says: “Through partnering with hotel interior designers we are helping them realise their vision – cost effectively. Sourcing the unusual, quirky or period furnishings and accessories is time consuming. But when it comes to electrical wiring accessories we can help save both time and money. Unique items such as special plate finishes/colours or non-standard plate functions can be supplied using Hamilton’s ‘Bespoke’ design service, Savile Row, and larger plate sizes incorporating specified multiple functions can be designed and produced to order.”

    Merging the new in-keeping-with the old
    Boutique Hotel guests are discerning. For them it is all about the experience: the aesthetics of the environment and high levels of personal service. One thing is for sure, they expect ‘luxurious home comforts’ and that includes access to all of the home technology and entertainment services as standard. Integrating smart technologies sympathetically and seamlessly within older style and heritage projects is key. Hamilton strength is its ability to merge the NEW in a way that’s in keeping with the OLD.


    Anne Boleyn would approve!
    Hamilton’s expertise in this area recently proved invaluable during the refurbishment of Anne Boleyn’s guest rooms within a new wing of Hever Castle’s Luxury Bed and Breakfast accommodation – an Edwardian annexe created by William Waldorf Astor, designed in Tudor style.

    Hever Castle Project Interior Designer Sarah Clark of Interiors at Nine to Eleven says:
    “I was initially drawn to Hamilton for its Mercury® Lighting Control system and range of stunning switch plates & sockets which perfectly suited the needs of this project. However I soon came to appreciate and value the fabulous personal service and consultative approach provided by the Hamilton Team.”

    Members of the Team will be available on the stand to discuss the Hever Castle project and other challenging Boutique projects successfully completed during the past 12 months.

    Boot-up in ‘guest’ mode
    Expecting guests to compromise on access to technology because they are spending a night in a hotel is no longer an option. It’s expected that iPods/iPhones can be connected to the room’s audio system through USB connections incorporated into the room switch plates. Also the guest room is often used as a remote office so again it’s important they have everything they need from communications technology and functionality within the hotel room such as the USB charger and international sockets, samples of each will be on the stand.

    “With our bespoke design and production service and 18 unique ‘designer’ plate collections, available in metal, plastic, wood and even glass finishes – many compatible with the company’s Mercury® lighting control and multi-room audio system – we can deliver a totally co-ordinated look and meet all the needs of virtually any client brief,” adds Gavin.

    Welcomed by BiiD
    Having identified its strengths in this sector Hamilton is continuing to develop and grow its product range and breadth of design support services to meet the needs of hotel interior designers and specifiers. Its commitment to the sector and desire to establish even closer working relationships with customers was recently recognised by the British Institute of Interior Design (BiiD), accepting Hamilton as an accredited ‘Industry Partner’.
