There is a sort of exquisiteness that comes with hotels. Why else would anyone want their bedrooms to look or at least feel like one?
Whether you want to make your guest room exclusively awesome or just want to upgrade your bedroom, this article is going to be your best bet.
What’s more interesting is that you do not even have to break the bank to get your bedroom to look like a hotel. In very easy steps, you are basking in the euphoria of a hotel all in the comfort of your bedroom.
Start with a bed makeover
One of the first things you spot as soon as you walk into your hotel room is a perfect bed. It is neither too hard nor too soft. Best part, the linens and bedspread!
Change your bedspread as frequently as you can into fresh new sheets that are of the top-quality grade. Crisp cotton percale is an elegant material for your bed. That feel of comfort is what you are looking for.
You can go the extra mile, get you the perfect linen spray. A linen spray is a liquid in a spray bottle made up of water and sweet smelling essential oils. You can even make your linen sprays at home.
In a small spray bottle, add some vodka or witch hazel, 2 tablespoons or thereabout. Add some drops (say 10) of your favourite essential oil. Lavender is a good choice if you ask. Add 6 tablespoons of water and shake. There you go, your sweet-smelling linen spray.
Spray this on your bedsheets and even on your rugs, curtains, wherever.
Triple sheeting is a cost-effective way of achieving a luxurious bedding set. What this does is that it makes your overall bed appearance, touch and feel look crisp and clean.
Triple sheeting involves multiple layering styles of sheets and blankets. This not only helps to make your bedroom feel like a hotel room, but it also keeps your bed cleaner for longer. You can decide to sleep in between the first and second layer or in between the second and third layer.
Choose a calm colour palette
The right colour palette is going to be one of the best decorating decisions. If you want to give your bedroom a hotel feel, pick the right colours.
A neutral colour palette would do the best job for you. What a neutral colour palette does is that it induces a peaceful effect. Add a pop of colour to accentuate the beauty. This can be done by adding throw pillows.
A nice neutral colour combination is soft blue, creamy white and different shades of beige. If you are confused, you can go for pastel colours that are very related in shades. You can also play with a lot of white and make that dominate.
Otherwise, check the internet for colour combinations if you suck at colours.
Add some subtle distraction
The little things really matter. How about a little distraction? Luxurious hotels always come with beautiful but subtle distraction. For example, you can add a pile of your favourite magazines at your bedside. A flower vase will is another good idea too.
Nice scented candles are perfect! Ottomans are great.
In so many hotels, watch out for the bedside set up and take a cue, let their placement inspire you. For a guest room, place an exquisite glass and water container.
If you can go through the trouble, add fresh flowers in the flower vase.
Many luxurious hotels employ minimalist designs. Make sure that you have as few as possible items in your bedroom. Declutter as much as you can.
Create a clear demarcation for all of the major items and spaces. Clear space for reading, your bed area, refrigerator space etc.
Give your windows a treat
Your window area is another place to look at if you must make your bedroom look like a hotel. The conventional hotel process of window decoration is a layer of sheer curtains balanced with a layer of dark shades.
Sheer curtains will provide a light, lively shade. You already have a blackout layer for darkening.
Light changes everything
A standard hotel room has as many kinds of lights as you can have in a room. Your light patterns can help to create different kinds of moods. Go for lighting you can adjust in the actual sleeping area.
You want to be able to achieve a bright or dull effect when you want. Your table/reading area should have bright lights. You can check out good lamp and light holders in affordable stores.
Never underestimate squeaky clean
Hotels and clean are always in the same sentence. You are not going to spend a single dime to achieve this one. A spotlessly clean bedroom will immediately transform it.
In fact, after the decluttering process and an immediate “room scrub”, you have in your hands a bedroom that is about to achieve the 5-star rating.
Add some art!
You would be surprised how much of easy this one is to achieve. If you are up for it, go for statement art on the wall. Something spectacular but comforting will create the difference.
Under a budget, just throw on some perfectly framed family or personal photos.
In conclusion, all you need to do a bedroom makeover is not far-fetched. Some changes here and there are all you need. Voila! You have your bedroom become your favourite haven.
