No matter where you go on vacation, the luxury of a fancy hotel room never feels to impress. It’s when travelers get home that they look at their own bedroom and reminisce on great nights’ sleep.
Fortunately, with a little work, you can recreate that same sense of excess found in most luxury hotels. Short of asking “is there an interior designer near me,” here are some ways to make your room as luxurious as your favorite vacation stay.
There’s no mistaking that crawling between crisp, clean sheets in a luxury hotel bed make anyone drift off into a relaxing slumber. Search out a set of quality high thread count linens to replicate that feeling at home. Also, take a cue from housecleaning and change out the sheets frequently, adding different designs and colors to refresh the space.
A key feature of luxury hotel bedroom interior design adds both a sense of decadence as well as plush stylings. Pillows are an excellent way to take your boudoir to the next level of excess. Not only attractive, but these useful items also transform the bed from a sleep space to a relaxation zone in a instant!
A nifty trick that many hotels use to both increase the plushness of their bed, as well as make changing sheets easier, is to triple sheet the linens. By layering a thin comforter or blanket between two starched sheets, you can simulate that super-crisp look and add comfort at the same time. The middle blanket needs changing less often as well.
As a general hotel rule, having softer lighting available on either side of the bed works wonders for making the room look complete while adding warmth when lit. Sconces are the traditional choice, but stylish lamps are an excellent alternative.
It’s rare to find empty nightstands in luxury hotel rooms, as most designers see it as space to add additional warmth or interest. Trick out your bedside tables with elegant knick-knacks, pictures or flowers to add that extra touch of class.
There is nothing more luxurious than climbing out of bed and placing your bare feet directly onto the softest, most plush rug imaginable. A faux sheepskin rug does wonders for aesthetics and will make waking up that much less of a chore when you’re welcomed by a warm rug instead of cold floors.
If there’s one thing that luxury hotels do best it’s choosing calming color pallets for their bedrooms. Hotel interior design in Hollywood and across the nation look towards light blues, creams and whites to promote a feeling of peaceful relaxation when it’s time to settle down for the night.
What list of needed hotel amenities would be complete without the mention of a bathrobe? No luxury hotel visit is complete without slipping on a comfy, plush robe in the morning or right after a shower. Hang one on the back of your door so it’s ready when you need it (or even when you just want it).
Getting that luxury hotel feeling at home is less of a challenge than many realize. Look into local designers to help make sure you can continue the luxury long after the vacation is over!
