From freshly laundered white sheets to the quintessential pillow mint, there are many reasons why five-star hotels feel like the epitome of luxury living. While every hotel has its secrets to creating the perfect luxury home decor, there are some shared elements across the board that you can take home with you. Forget souvenirs – take these simple upgrades and make your home feel like a glamorous hotel that you can relax in every day.
A High-Quality Mattress
Investing in your bed is one of the best things you can do for your mental and physical health. If your mattress is too stiff or too soft, it can easily affect your sleep, mood, and overall well-being. A good night’s sleep is essential to starting your day off right, and a high-quality mattress from a trusted brand like Sealy, Stearns & Foster, or Tempur-Pedic is key to getting that restful sleep. Not only do these mattresses feel more comfortable, but they last longer and provide better support than your average mattress.
White Linens & Towels
If you’re wanting to add a touch of luxury to your home, start with switching out your old towels and sheets for some new, crisp white ones. Hotel linens are almost always white, so having white bedding at home will subconsciously make you feel as if you are back on vacation. There’s just something about white linens that make a space feel more serene. Plus, white goes with everything so you don’t need to worry about color-coordinating with your other decor.
Fresh Cut Flowers
A simple way to make your home feel like a high-end hotel is to have fresh-cut flowers in every room. Not only do they add a touch of color, but they also provide a lovely fragrance. If you’re not prepared for the upkeep of displaying fresh flowers all the time, consider displaying some flowering houseplants instead. You can save the fresh flower arrangements for special occasions like when guests come over
Find a Signature Scent
Luxury hotels cater to all of the senses, including smell. In addition to flowers, hotels often have a signature scent that guests can instantly recognize. Having a signature scent can help you relax and feel at home. It’s a great way to personalize your space and your guests will be impressed every time they visit. Once you find a scent you love, buy a diffuser, some candles, or a room spray to keep the smell going throughout every room.
Stock Your Bar Cart
What’s the best part of a hotel room? The minibar! Having a little snack or drink at any time of the day or night without having to go grocery shopping or walk to the kitchen is the ultimate in simple pleasures. To get the feeling of having a stocked minibar at home, set up a bar cart with your favorite beverages along with jars of little snacks like Peanut M&M’s, pretzels, and nuts. You’ll have everything all set for movie night or for when guests come to visit.
Creating a Five-Star Experience with Luxury Home Decor
Your home is your sanctuary and you deserve to feel like it’s even more luxurious than staying in a five-star hotel. Sometimes just a few small upgrades can make a world of a difference, turning your bed into a fluffy cloud and your bathroom into a spa-like oasis.
