How To Make Your Bedroom Feel Like a 5 Star Hotel Room

Nothing beats the feeling of checking into a luxurious hotel. But what if you could create a similar feeling in your own home? After travel writing for almost 10 years, I have been lucky enough to have reviewed many 5 star hotels. Based on my own experiences, here are 5 ways to make your bedroom feel more luxurious.

5 ways to make your bedroom feel like a hotel

1. Invest in a statement bed

The centre piece of every 5 star hotel room is always the bed. Usually king size or even super king, they dominate the room and draw your attention. Choosing something with a high headboard or a textured fabric is a great way to add a touch of luxury. We recently upgraded our bed from a double to a king size and it has made a huge different to the feel of the bedroom.

2. De clutter your surfaces

The joy of arriving in a hotel room is that there is never any mess. There are clean lines and surfaces which immediately make you feel calm. You can replicate that same feeling of calm at home by decluttering any surfaces in your bedroom and giving them a good clean. It sounds simple but will make a huge impact!

3. Treat yourself to good quality bedding

The fluffy duvets, the plumped cushions and the silky soft sheets; nothing beats that feeling of slipping into a luxury hotel bed. Investing in good quality bedding is one of the easiest ways to make your bedroom feel like a hotel. I’ve always spent a bit extra on good quality bedding because I know it washes better, lasts longer and helps me sleep better.

4. Add a signature scent

Hotels have a way of awakening the senses, and often when checking into a hotel room I am met with a gorgeous new scent. Whether you purchase a simple plug-in scent or indulge in a luxurious diffuser, adding a new scent to your bedroom will make it feel like a new and inviting space to be in your home. On my wish list is the Velvet Rose and Oud diffuser from Jo Malone. I have the perfume and it’s my favourite ever scent.

5. Add texture and colour through soft furnishings

For finishing touches, try adding some soft furnishings to your bedroom. These could include additional cushions on the bed, a cosy throw at the foot of the bed, a rug on the floor or new curtains. Layering soft furnishings can add depth, texture and colour to your room. I generally try to stick to the same colour theme but mix up the textures.
