We all need to getaway sometimes from our own homes and bedroom as everything has become cluttered, messy and not relaxing. And we covet that luxurious comfort of a hotel room because frankly, our homes look nothing like that. We spend time and effort searching for the best hotels on our trips and stay-cations to ensure we are getting the best in comfort.
How about bringing that hotel coziness to your bedroom instead? It may seem like a daunting task, but with some little changes it is completely achievable! Instead of splurging on your next stay-cation, here are 17 ways you can upgrade your room and transform it into that luxe coziness we all crave for.
1. Choose a calming colour palette
A great way to start the transformation of your bedroom to a comfy hotel room is with colour. Stick to a neutral colour palette that will create a calming atmosphere in the room. Most hotels usually have a neutral colour palette that appeals to almost everyone, giving them a comfy home away from home.
2. Creating dedicated spaces
Hotel rooms usually feature not only a bed, but a desk, a small lounge area, and wardrobe. To mimic this concept, think about the activities you wish to perform in the room, such as sleeping, reading, working, and design your rooms to create these dedicated spaces. This will surely elevate your room to hotel room standard!
3. Treat the floors with carpets
Add texture and warmth to the bedroom with carpets to bring some luxe comfort that we experience in hotels. If fully carpeted is not your cup of tea then a consider a buying a carpet or rug for your bedroom.
4. Update the walls with textured wall paper
Adding some texture to the walls will also bring that comfy hotel vibe to your bedroom. Pick a wall and dress it up with some texturised wall paper. It also doubles up as a feature wall which is a great design element.
5. Replace the white light
Ditch those fluorescent light bulbs and switch it up to warm lighting. You can even add a dimmer so you can adjust the brightness as and when you please!
6. Create a lounging area
After outlining a dedicated space for relaxing in the bedroom, fill it up with a chaise lounge. If space is an issue, then consider an ottoman instead.
7. Invest in a good bed
The best investment you can make for your bedroom will be your bed, so max out the budget and get the best you can. The best hotels are decked out with the best mattresses to provide the ultimate luxury and comfort for their guests!
8. Invest in quality bedding
Since you are investing in a good bed, then you will need good bedding to go with that. Hotels usually use sheets and bedding with at least a 300 thread count, so that gives you an idea of the types of bedding for ultimate hotel comfort.
9. Add warmth with throw pillows and blankets
Throw pillows and blankets will create a cozy look in your room, much like many hotel rooms. It not only looks comfy, but brings some extra flair to the bedroom as well.
10. Add some personality with paintings and books
While hotel rooms are not uniquely yours, your bedroom certainly is. Include paintings, books, and vases that speak to your tastes and preference. This will make you feel connected to your space and keep you at ease.
11. Sink your feet into fluffy rugs and sheepskins
Include some fluffy rugs and sheepskins on both sides of the bed. There is no better way to start your day than by sinking your feet into something plush and soft.
12. Get cozy in a plush bathrobe
The fun part of checking into a hotel is throwing on the bathrobe! Treat yourself to a plush bathrobe and you can lounge around in style and comfort.
13. Splurge on quality scented candles
The best hotels offer their guests a full sensorial experience, from sight, touch, and smell. To elevate your room to cozy hotel room standard, buy some quality scented candles and light them up at night before bed. Lavender is a great scent to start with if you are not sure what to buy.
14. Consider the window treatment
Layer your windows with sheer day curtains and a heavy drape or black out curtain. The sheer curtain will allow some natural light into the room, while the heavy curtain will ensure a darkened room for a restful sleep.
15. Accent with flowers and plants
Spruce your bedroom with a bouquet of fresh flowers or some green plants. It will add a touch of freshness and coziness just like a hotel. If fresh flowers are hard to maintain, you could get silk flowers as an alternative.
16. Create a headboard with fabric
One thing that stands out in a hotel room is the headboard of the bed, usually made of fabric. In addition to the throw pillows and blanket, this creates a layering effect that hotels use to make the rooms extra cozy.
17. Make it your own with monogrammed bedding
The best hotels include monogrammed pillows, blankets, and even towels. You can incorporate the same concept by using your initials to monogram your bedding.
