Who hasn’t stepped into a hotel room and gone wow at the feel of the room? There is simply something special about how the room is put together. But, in most cases, the real delight is the bed. You have crisp clean sheets, a mattress that seems to absorb and support you, and you know you are in for a great night’s sleep.
It’s not surprising that you would want to recreate that feeling at home. The good news is that it is possible!
Setting the Scene
The first step is to create the right feel as you enter the room. That means selecting a bed that will go with your room. You may wish to spend a little time looking at the décor. Neutral colours on the walls and a large jute rug sticking out from under all sides of the bed can really help to establish the right feel.
Alongside this, you’ll want to keep the amount of furniture in the room to a minimum. It can also help to remove the majority of personal touches, although not all of them!
By setting the scene you will instantly feel like you are in a hotel room and that’s half the battle in getting a bed like a 5-star hotel.
Change Your Mattress
Hotels, especially 5-star ones, have plush mattresses with plenty of room for you to move. It’s time to avoid the standard mattress shops and treat yourself to a special one. While mattresses are usually available in standard, Queen, and King, it is possible to order a custom mattress.
This is a good idea as you will be able to specify the length which means you can fit your entire body straight on the mattress. The best mattresses should also allow you to roll sideways once in both directions, reducing the risk of a fall.
Of course, you’ll also need to choose your preferred style of mattress, soft, hard, or somewhere between.
It’s not just a matter of changing your bedsheets. In order to get the 5-star experience, you need to get the right bedsheets. That means opting for cotton, silk, or satin. These are the premium options and will make you feel fantastic in bed.
In order to maintain the 5-star feeling you’ll want to change your sheets several times a week, which means you need to purchase several sets of sheets.
The good news is that you can choose any colour sheets you want. It’s a great way to reflect your personality without affecting the 5-star feel.
The same approach needs to be reflected in your choice of duvet.
Don’t forget that you need the right pillows to complete the 5-star experience. That means choosing a size and softness level. Again, this is a personal decision that needs to be based on the level of support your head needs and how much you move at night.
The right pillow makes a big difference to your comfort and ensures you feel like you are in a 5-star bed.
