How to create a luxurious hotel-feeling in your own bedroom

Calico has had worked on its fair share of designing hotel rooms, and we know that sometimes people want to replicate that luxurious hotel experience at home. So we’ve compiled a few tips to help you create that comfort in your bedroom.

  1. The bed

The best part of a hotel room is the bed. It’s designed to be the focal point of the room, and you know it’s so comfy that you instantly flop down on to it as soon as you open the door. To recreate this feeling at home, start with fresh sheets and thick blankets, topped with plush cushions and bed throws. When it comes to replicating the style of a hotel room itself, there are many styles that hotel rooms usually have, such as oversized headboards and large sizes.

2. Window treatments

The most important thing here is that the fabric matches the bedding. Hotel rooms ensure that you have a good night’s sleep when you stay, and so the curtains are usually blackout, which you can also have in your home.

3. A place for everything

In a hotel room, there is a space for everything, whether it be a somewhere to read, get ready in the morning or even for your cup of coffee. Therefore, you should decide what you will be using the bedroom for, other than sleeping, and design the room accordingly. A mirror, a writing desk, a large, comfy chair, having access to items like these in your bedroom will add to the hotel-like feeling, as everything you need is all in one room.

4. Lighting

Lighting plays a crucial role when furnishing hotel rooms, as they create the right ambience thus creating the right atmosphere. Try placing table lamps either side of the bed for reading light, as well as one near your vanity mirror for a touch of glamour. Don’t forget to use decorative light shades that draw attention, as the fanciest hotels often use the more extravagant lighting!

5. Finishing touches

It’s not just the furniture that creates a luxurious hotel feeling. A fluffy blanket thrown over a chair, a soft rug, an intricate tray to balance your coffee cups on when having breakfast in bed. All these accessories help make up an opulent atmosphere. These touches emphasise the furniture you have, creating a homely feeling so that you’ll feel welcome in your bedroom. Add in your personal items, such as photographs, books, and makeup, and you’ll soon find that you have a luxurious bedroom that you will never want to leave.
