The bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the home. It is where we relax, escape and rest every night, so it’s no surprise that you want this space to be a comforting retreat. There is something truly special about staying and sleeping in a luxury hotel; from the crisp, fresh Egyptian cotton sheets to the lush, thick-pile carpet that you sink your feet into after a long slumber, you always feel like you’ve had a better night sleep after a stay in a hotel. So why is it that, in reality, our own bedrooms consist of unmade beds, clutter and far from stylish decor?
Below we discuss ways to make your own bedroom feel like a luxury hotel, so that you don’t always have to break the bank to get an incredible night’s sleep.
Pay attention to your curtains – To recreate that luxury feel, it’s time to ditch those boring blinds and curtains. It’s surprising how much of an impact curtains can have on a room; the correct curtains can transform a room and bring everything together. For a true touch of elegance, consider velvet, silk or linen curtains, or add some floaty drapes. To create the illusion of a bigger room, hang your curtains closer to the ceiling than the window frame and choose long designs that pool or break at the floor.
Invest in lavish lighting – A luxury hotel room is never dark or dreary; instead, it is well lit with beautiful lighting fixtures such as lamps, chandeliers and wall lights to create a variety of different moods. One way to recreate a luxury hotel room is to pay attention to your lighting. In a hotel room, there is never usually just one source of light. Consider installing dimmer lights for your main lighting and add lamps to your bedside tables. If you have art on the wall, installing lights under or over your artwork to make them stand out can make a true statement and add another source of light.
Indulge in beautiful bed linens – One of the best parts of staying in a luxury hotel is the big comfortable bed and the fresh, crisp linen. To recreate that hotel feel, focus on your bed. A new set of laundered and pressed quality sheets can truly transform how your bed feels. Triple sheeting is a secret hotelier trick that you can bring home to your own bedroom to recreate the feeling of sleeping in a hotel bed; simply layer a thin blanket or comforter between two sheets.
Don’t forget the small touches – One thing that makes a hotel room feel like, well, a hotel room, is the little luxuries such as glasses and water carafes on the bedside table, a coffee machine, expensive lotions and flowers. Simply adding fresh flowers to a bedroom can completely transform the appearance (and scent) of the space. Consider adding a luxurious candle to create a fresh smell, along with smaller luxuries such as a fresh fruit bowl, nice hangers in the wardrobe and a pile of new magazines for reading.
