5 tips to create a luxury hotel feeling in your bedroom
Keep your bed neatly made-up. Even if you’re not going to see it all day. One of the most often-quoted ‘habits of successful people’ is the discipline of making their bed in the morning.
That small effort in your morning could result in big changes in your life! A tidy room is a tidy mind.
For help with those ‘hospital corners’ try the Bed Scrunchie. This nifty gadget works with all bed sheets, mattress toppers and protectors to keep your bottom sheet in crease-less order.
Exercise minimalism. William Morris famously said “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful”. As one of the founding fathers of modern interior design, his words deserve to be heeded.
A bedroom should be a sanctuary—separate from the hustle and bustle of life and preserved as a place of rest and reflection. Hotel rooms achieve this well, and that is of course part of their appeal. Minimalism even applies to areas you don’t see. Give a little TLC to the area under your bed. If it’s jam-packed with useless clutter, consider investing in some pretty storage containers to organize all that chaos.
Install light-switches by your bed (and table lamps). Any hotel worth its salt will have these simple features. There is simply nothing worse than:
Reading or relaxing under the glare of a relentlessly bright ceiling light. After said read or relaxing, having to untuck yourself from the duvet cocoon and make the treacherous journey to the main light switch.
These easy installments require minimal effort but produce maximum results. You can thank us later.
Be mindful with your decor. Hotel rooms vary greatly in style and color scheme, and that’s fine. Of course, in your own bedroom you’re free to decorate as you wish.
However, the recurring theme found in high-end hotels is consistency and elegance—both of which can take very different forms. Just ensure you select a complementary color scheme and choose tasteful pieces of furniture (preferably from the best online furniture stores). The key is making sure all elements work together.
Calming colors are typically recommended when choosing a bedroom color palette. You’ll want to amplify the ‘personal oasis’ atmosphere, and very bright clashing colors are often detrimental to this.
Finishing touches. Okay, maybe not chocolate on pillows (although why not?). But we’re talking fluffy towel bathrobes, puffed up pillows, sleep masks, and tasteful features like soft-dimming lighting.
Well-placed mirrors also tend to help rooms to appear bigger, if space isn’t on your side. In addition, sophisticated artwork placed thoughtfully on the walls helps to draw the eye and inspire creativity.
These subtle nods borrowed from hoteliers could make a difference in the atmosphere of your bedroom; promoting peace, tranquillity, and mental clarity.
Bed sheets buyers guide: How to choose the best bed sheets for your bedroom
Useful tips on selecting materials
Egyptian cotton: Expect a luxurious finish. The fabric is made from extra-long fibers resulting in a soft and smooth feel. It is recommended that you wash them on cold water, gentle cycle. Remove them from the washing machine as soon as possible to prevent creasing. Dry them on a low setting or on a line; high heat may cause shrinkage.
Percale: Typically lightweight and crisp to touch. Percale cotton is great for year-round usage, as the breathable nature of the fabric helps to regulate temperature.
Ideally to be washed on a warm cycle with a mild detergent. Gentle drying is recommended with percale, too.
Linen: Twice as durable as cotton bedding, linen is a breathable fabric that keeps you warm in winter and cooler in summer. Beyond effortless elegance, linen also possesses a few secret weapons, making it truly irresistible. It maintains a natural pH balance and is anti-allergic, rendering it a must-have for those with problematic skin, and a good choice for children, too.
Sateen: Characterised by a soft, luxurious and silken touch, with a slight subtle sheen. While sateen is technically made from cotton fibers, the specific treatment process renders sateen a superior material. The raw cotton fibers are combed to make them longer, and then an intricate process called mercerisation takes place to ‘seal’ the fibers. This results in more durable cotton complete with an attractive sheen.
Of course, the individual care guide should be adhered to, however it’s usually safe to wash sateen sheets on a normal, hot cycle. Gentle drying is recommended, as is color separating.
Flannel: Tends to be more soft and pliant than other bed sheet fabrics. Flannel retains warmth which makes it great for the winter months.
Washing with hot water can encourage unwanted shrinkage and create pilling. Therefore, a warm cycle with a gentle detergent is preferable. To dry, it’s better for the longevity of the sheets if you hang them out to dry on a line, where possible.
Jersey: Jersey sheets are usually stretchy and lightweight—traditionally made from 100% wool, but now you’ll find a lot of jersey is a combination of wool, cotton and polyester.
Good for year-round use, they’re usually quite durable. Therefore, a normal warm wash is ideal. No ironing is necessary, and drip dry or a low tumble-dry is preferable.
Silk: Wonderful if you’re looking for a grandiose aesthetic and comfort. Silk certainly makes more of a statement than other materials, and executed correctly can truly be the making of a bedroom.
Bamboo: The rayon from the bamboo plant is used to create a soft, gentle fabric. Great for those who suffer from sensitive skin—the fabric is hypoallergenic, antibacterial and temperature-regulating.
Ideally, wash on a cold cycle, or no more than 30 degrees. Again, line-drying is beneficial, or a low tumble-dry if this is not possible.
What is the best thread count for bed sheets, you may ask? The general rule is the higher the thread count, the softer the sheets. A good thread count is between 200-800. Higher thread counts are usually better. However, it’s important to consider other factors such as type of cotton, ply count, and weave.
Know your sizes
Navigating bedding sizes can be a bit of a minefield. As is quintessential of American culture, they tend to supersize things… Thus, where a king size bed in the UK is 72 by 78 inches (150 by 200 cm), the US standard for a king size is 76 by 80 inches (193 by 203,5 cm).
The same trend applies to other bed sizes, too:
A UK queen size bed is 60 by 78 inches (120 by 190 cm), whereas a US queen size is 60 by 80 inches (152,5 by 203,5 cm).
With double/full size beds; they tend to be 54 by 75 inches (135,5 by 190,5 cm) both in the UK and across the pond. That’s one less cause for confusion, at least!
With twin/singles, in the UK the standard is 36 by 75 inches (90 by 190 cm), and the US is 39 by 75 inches (96,5 by 190,5 cm).
Finally, the Californian king bed: predictably more common in the US, the standard is 72 by 84 inches (183 by 203,5 cm).
Check the specific dimensions of your bed and align them with your prospective sheets to ensure they match up.
