If you’re like most people in the UK, one of your favourite things about staying in a hotel is probably getting into the soft, luxurious bed at the end of a long day. Always more tempting, indulgent and cosier than your bed at home, there are few things better than a truly sumptuous and inviting hotel bed.
And now, with a range of high quality beds, bedspreads, duvets and accessories available throughout the UK, there’s no reason you can’t transform your own bed into a hotel bed and enjoy the luxury, comfort and style you’d expect from a five star set-up!
As well as the look of the space, one of the most important factors in creating a hotel-style bed is the bed itself. Divan beds are a great choice for stylish bedrooms as they focus all the attention on the bedspread and accessories and provide hidden storage that allows you to create a seamless and uncluttered appearance throughout the whole room.
SHEETS AND COVERS
The key to creating a hotel bed look in your own home is to invest in some high quality sheets and covers. In most cases your skin really can feel the difference between expensive Egyptian cotton sheets and mass-made synthetic ones.To get the look and feel you want, you’re going to have to spend a little bit of cash. Don’t be put off though – one of the benefits of buying high quality sheets is that they will last longer, allowing you to enjoy your hotel-style bed for years to come. When it comes to the look of your new sheets, anything goes with many boutique hotels choosing brightly coloured fabrics and bold, geometric patterns. If you’re struggling to find a design you really love, try thinking about the colours that already feature in your soft furnishings and match your bedspread to those. Don’t forget to layer either – adding sheets, blankets and scatter cushions for the ultimate indulgence.
DUVETS AND PILLOWS
Soft and sumptuous, the duvets and pillows that you find in good hotels are always made from high quality materials and are built to last. As you’ll be sleeping in your bed every night, it’s worth investing in the very best duvets and pillows you can afford. Your body will really appreciate it and you’re guaranteed to wake up feeling more refreshed in the mornings. A lot of hotels also place cushions and throws on their beds. Though these accessories won’t affect your sleeping experience, they will help to give your bed an authentic hotel look and make your bedroom more appealing. If you like to keep these accessories to a minimum then why not inject colour and style through other elements of your bed’s design – such as the headboard?
When it comes to headboards, hotels often choose subtle designs in order to enhance the look and feel of the space. Opt for a plain design in a bold colour – like dusky pink – and you have an instant focal point that exudes five star luxury but lets you keep your bed linen and surrounding room neutral.
By transforming your bedroom into a hotel room, you can ensure that every night is a little more luxurious, indulgent and rejuvenating; something that we could all do with in the hectic, fast paced world we live in.
