Making hotel style part of your home decor
When you want to create a luxury getaway experience in your home's bedroom and master bath, choosing quality bedding and bath linens is a starting point. And adding decor pieces completes the effect. The at-home hotel experience begins with a comfortable mattress covered with plush bedding. In the master bath, use items such as towels and a shower curtain to help set the scene.
Hotel style bedding
Because of its size, the bed is typically the focal point of a bedroom, and that makes the bedding you choose an important part of the room's decor. Details like embroidery on the duvet covers and a high thread count are features of this type of luxury hotel-quality bedding. In addition to adding color and texture to the room, it's also one of the room's design elements you���re most likely to interact with each day. Bedding is available as separate pieces, such as sheets, pillowcases, and comforters or duvets. It's also available in sets that take the guesswork out of putting together a matched effect.
- Sheets: The size of your bed will guide you in your search for sheets. Sheet sizes run from twin up through California king to accommodate all standard bed sizes. A wide variety of colors and prints is also available to match the rest of the decor in almost any room. Hotel sheets are made from a variety of soft, breathable fibers, such as cotton, Egyptian cotton, cotton blends, and polyester. The thread count also affects the way the sheets feel when you touch them, with hotel sheet thread counts starting at 500 and going up to 1100.
- Comforters: Hotel-style comforters include heavy, warm layers made in classic styles to match other design elements in the room. Look for these to be stuffed with inner fibers like hypoallergenic goose down for a classic feeling or a down alternative.
- Bedding sets: Bedding sets provide a quick way to put together a full bedroom ensemble. Sheets, pillow cases, shams, and a comforter or duvet cover are included in the sets. This takes the guesswork out of trying to match pieces. You also won't have to spend any time hunting for those separate pieces.
Mattresses and accessories
While you rarely see the mattress when the bed is made, it has a direct effect on your sleep quality. Look for features like a combination of inner springs and memory foam to deliver a semi-firm, semi-soft sleep experience that supports you while keeping you comfortable. Consider pairing the mattress you choose with an upholstered box spring that adds to the finished effect of the room without the need to place a cover over it.
Adding pillow shams as decor accents
When you want to add a subtle decor accent to the bedroom, consider adding pillow shams to a pair of pillows. Pillow shams come in colors to match the comforter or duvet cover for a themed effect. Or you may prefer to mix things up and pick shams in a contrasting but still complementary color. The first approach, choosing matching fabrics and designs, delivers an upscale hotel effect. The second option, using shams to add a touch of color to the room, adds a bit of warm, friendly elegance.
Towels that are soft and eye-catching
Plush, thirsty bath towels are another important part of the luxurious hotel experience, and you can choose these towels in a variety of colors to match your bathroom decor. Stick with soft, muted hues for a neutral theme that looks great regardless of your other decor. Or pick vibrant shades of red or blue for a standout effect that showcases other design elements in the bathroom. Look for fibers like Pima or Egyptian cotton to enjoy the softness and absorbency of high-quality bath towels.
Shower curtains, rods, and hooks
In a luxury hotel, even the shower curtain has a different feel. These shower curtains have features like weighting that keeps them from blowing around. You also have the option of choosing a shower liner and outer curtain combination. This style of double curtain offers two benefits. The heavy curtain will stop the water from leaking on to the floor, while the decorative outer curtain adds to the look of your bathroom.
