By Adrianna Johns on 10th October 2019

Whether it is the clutter-free decor, freshly laundered sheets, neutral colour schemes or the extremely comfortable mattresses, staying at a luxury hotel is a blissful experience and one that we all wish we could have in our homes.

We typically associate luxury hotel accommodation with extreme comfort and exclusive luxuries, however, you could easily recreate the same experience in your home, so that every night is an opulent one.

With just a few simple changes, your bedroom could go from regular to palatial in no time and will offer the exquisite experience that you enjoy when you stay in 5-star hotel accommodation — all you need to do is to follow our tips and disregard your worries towards potential expenses.

The bed

Whenever you stay at a luxury hotel, the very heart of the room will be the bed itself

Whenever you stay at a luxury hotel, the very heart of the room will be the bed itself. Typically, these exquisite hotel rooms have a full-size bed where guests can have all the space they need whilst receiving the comfort they desire.

Therefore, the first element you need to upgrade is your bed — we recommend investing in a memory foam mattress, as it offers a heightened sense of comfort and softness that one needs for a restful sleep.

Typically, luxury hotel beds will be layered with fitted sheets and a comforter. When trying to pick the sheets for your luxury transformation, ensure that you focus on a higher thread count, as it will make for a truly deluxe feel for your bed.

The comforter is an essential element that will enhance the space and will instantly give your bed the classically opulent look that it deserves — you ultimately decide how thick and plush you would want your comforter to be, and choose wisely, as you wouldn’t want to get too warm when trying to sleep.

A luxury bed needs luxury pillows, so simply choose goose down option, along with some exquisitely soft silk covers and you’ll be on your way to achieving your own luxury hotel-style bedroom.

The lighting

A luxury hotel room will usually have the perfect lighting, therefore you need to ensure that you also have the right lights.

A luxury room should offer several sources of light, as well as an option to enhance or dim so that you can control the mood of the room easily and without hassle.

Consider a three-way switch by your bedside, a closet light that can activate whenever you open the door and sufficient light overhead when you need it — hire a professional to come in and instal dimming controls, as this option will enhance the level of opulence your room has.

The colour palette

The first element to consider when decorating is the colour scheme you will be introducing to your room.

Colours can have a wide effect on your mind and mood, therefore choosing the correct colour is essential for a successful transformation. Considering that the bedroom is traditionally a space for rest and recuperation, we recommend that you choose softer colours and aim for neutral tones.

White tones showcase cleanliness and minimalism, brown shades bring forth a sense of comfort and security, whilst grey hues tones represent neutrality and balance — you’ll find that the majority of luxury hotel rooms will have softer tones to calm the mind and help relax.

The decorations

Crafted with an emphasis on the detail, luxury hotel rooms typically have fantastic decor.

The key is to put some thought into the overall look you wish for, whilst remembering that when decorating you should make it a reflection of yourself, as this is truly an important element when successfully transforming your room.

Regardless of the style, remember to accentuate anything that is wonderful about the room — does your room have charming windows, beautiful flooring or an impressive ceiling height? If so, draw attention to it.

Accentuating your flooring is key and you can easily do this by placing an exquisite rug by your bed or window. With so many rugs for sale, you can easily find one that will catch your eye and fit perfectly in your newly transformed luxury bedroom.

If you have space, then consider having a seating area by placing an armchair near the window so that you have options on where to relax. Alternatively, why not add a dressing table where you can neatly place a few of your luxury items, ready for you to use when you’re preparing for a day out.
