Travelers go on vacations to see the world and to experience some of the best luxury hotel accommodations. But there’s no need to spend a ton of money when you can actually experience an indulgent hotel experience right in the comfort of your own home.
If you’re stuck at home but still want to experience a luxury hotel experience, here are some great ways to upgrade your home.
5 Steps to Designing Your Bedroom to Feel Like a Luxury Hotel Experience
① Improve Ventilation and Air Conditioning
Most hotel rooms have a great air conditioning unit or
ventilation system. The advantages of installing a new air conditioner in your
Optimal temperature adjustments to suit any season
Minimized noise compared to older machines
Multiple control options to make your space comfortable to live in
There are many kinds of heating and cooling units you can use
in your home to mimic that hotel feel. Some of the different options include:
Package Terminal Air
Conditioners (PTACs) are used by hotels across
the world and are preferred because of their reliability in output. Unlike
other heating and cooling solutions, they also tend to be more energy
efficient. PTACsare also quiet to
run, and are typically more affordable in terms of installation costs.
Wall air conditioners are another option. However, the downside to
these is you have to cut a hole in your wall to accommodate one. They also tend
to use more power than a new or refurbished PTAC unit. Wall units also tend to be noisier than other types of heating and
Portable air conditioners are great for those who like to move
around different rooms. However, they don’t offer the same type of luxury hotel
feel you’d get with other PTACs or wall mounted air conditioners. They also
cost more to run.
Great air conditioning and ventilation solutions can really
help enhance a room’s appeal. They can give you that hotel vibe you’re after.
② Upgrade your Bedding
Bedding is another area where some hotels exceed in. Many
high-end hotels tend to gravitate to top two options: bamboo sheets and
Egyptian cotton sheets. These types of sheets are preferred over others due to
their thread count. The higher the thread count, the softer they are against
the skin. A good thread count to work on is around 1000 and up.
Some of the ways you can enhance your bedding include:
Place it on the bed, fresh from the laundry.
Use fabric softener with a refreshing smell.
Try triple sheeting. This means making your bed using multiple
layers of blankets, sheets and bedspreads. Many high-end hotels offer this
because it feels
luxurious and preserves the life of the bedding. It also gives you a choice of which layer you
want to sleep under.
③ Get Good Pillows
Nothing says luxury hotel than a good, comfortable pillow.
Many luxury hotels use different pillows to give their customers a relaxing
stay. The three top choices many luxury hotels use are the following:
Memory foam – These pillows are great for those who like to have the same sleeping pattern each night. They’re generally hypoallergenic which makes them good for people with allergies.
Feather pillows – Feather pillows are those which feature feathers within the casing. These are soft and easier to manipulate, for those who like to curl into the pillow.
Down pillows – Down pillows are the best option for those who like to mold their pillow into unusual sleeping areas. They’re generally very soft due to the use of down feathers.
When purchasing new pillows, consider your sleeping patterns.
Are you a back, side, or belly sleeper? Make sure to choose a pillow which
caters to your style of sleeping for overall maximum comfort. You can also use throw pillows to help give a touch of class to a
④ Stick with a Calming Color Palette
If you notice, many hotels have a similar color palette –
neutral or complementing colors. If you’re repainting your home or a room, it’s
ideal to stick with a clean, calming color scheme. Some good color options you
can try include whites, beiges, light blues, light greens, pastel yellows, and
Colors like reds, blacks, and oranges tend to look harsh when
used in larger quantities. Spots of these colors are fine to use. When choosing
the color palette, be consistent with the colors. Light greys in the bedroom for example give a
clean feel, yet allow you to decorate with splashes of color.
⑤ Toiletries and Bathroom Essentials
One of the hallmarks of staying in a hotel is getting the
complimentary toiletries and bathroom essentials you get upon arrival. To
achieve the same effect in your home, here are some of the things you can do:
Hang a bathrobe on the bathroom door.
Add fluffy towels ready for use.
Decorate the sink using small soaps.
Place small shampoos and conditioners in the shower.
Add scented candles around the bath tub.
These little additions can create the same opulent vibe you
get when you stay in a luxury hotel.
Recreating that hotel experience in your home is achievable, and can really brighten up your mood, especially when you haven’t had a holiday for quite some time. Don’t be afraid to be a little extra to bring comfort and elegance into your humble abode.
