There’s nothing quite like staying in a luxury hotel. The beautiful interiors, plush bedding, delicious meals. And on top of that, you have an accommodating staff ready to attend to your needs. It’s these offerings that make trips even more unforgettable.
The good news is that you can replicate the same exact ambiance in your home without having to spend much. Just follow the tips below and it’ll feel like you’re staying in a luxury hotel every day.
1. Invest in a really good mattress
You don’t have to do this right away since mattresses tend to last for years. However, if it looks like it’s already gone beyond its use, it’s time to replace it. This time, make sure you get new, plush mattresses. One that you’ll enjoy lounging in.
You want to do as much research and window shopping on this item because you’ll be laying on it for the next half a decade or so. It’s also a plus if the mattress is eco-friendly. This means it should be made with sustainable materials and not contain any harmful compounds. Your sleeps are about to get even more luxe when you do this, trust us.
2. Pick a neutral palette
Picking the right colors for your rooms is important for creating that relaxing vibe. If you want to create a truly serene atmosphere, opt for a neutral color palette — think creamy whites, beige, and pale blues. This can easily be done by implementing these colors in your bed sheets, upholstery, rugs, and draperies. To get the complete look, you can even repaint your walls. And then get in touch with us about planning a vacation, because every painting job should be rewarded with something much more relaxing and some quiet time to get that paint out of your hair.
3. Optimize your bathroom with scents
The bathroom may be one of your least favorite places but it will quickly become your go-to if you add the right elements starting with fragrance. Place a fresh vase of flowers for that natural scent and add in candles, luxury soaps, and essential oils. You can even display your favorite perfumes, facial oils, and shaving accessories. Also, make sure to always have fresh towels available.
4. Make a statement with your entrance
Your home’s entryway is like the hotel’s lobby so pay special attention to this area too. Make sure it’s welcoming by placing a bench where you can easily sit down and take off your outside items. Have hangers and bowls ready to catch those items like your jacket, umbrella, keys, bags, etc. If your entryway space is limited, you can create the illusion of space with a huge wall mirror.
5. Think of your lighting
The best luxury hotels meticulously plan their lighting scheme to create a safe and relaxing space for their guests. It doesn’t seem much but the right lighting really does make a difference. In your home, look at areas that need more illumination and set up lamps in those places. You may also want to change your existing lamps to ones that feel warmer. These create a cozy ambiance and are perfect to use for evenings when it’s time to unwind.
6. Make your own minibar
A minibar is really just a small fridge stocked with delicious ready-to-drink cocktails. You can easily replicate this in your home by investing in a small refrigerator in your bedroom. It should strictly be stocked indulgent items like your favorite canned cocktails, chocolates, and candies.
7. Drown out the noise
Many luxury hotels are able to maintain a tranquil environment because they’re surrounded by nature whether it’s a garden, forest, a beach or an incredible over-water bungalow. Your neighborhood may not be the most idyllic but you can still have that peaceful ambiance with the help of a noise machine which can produce desirable sounds such as waterfalls, beach waves, or birds chirping. This is designed to cancel out unwanted noise outside such as dogs barking, cars honking, or neighbors arguing.
