If there’s anything I’ve learned in all my years of traveling, it’s that nothing beats the feeling of a luxe hotel room experience. The only thing better than that is when you can recreate the experience in your home! It took years of experimenting before I was able to nail it down to the right aesthetic for me but now that I’ve figured it out, I wanted to share some easy tips to make your bedroom feel like a 5-star hotel.
1. Use high-quality white linens
When it comes to bedding, you’ll notice that the most luxurious hotels in the world only use crisp white linens, and I’m a fan. They’re refreshing in the summer, calming in the winter, and look so chic throughout the year. Cotton sheets are best because they’re breathable and low maintenance, resulting in crisp, clean sheets for any time of year.
If you’re wanting that true hotel bedding, consider buying them from a luxury hotel chain, like Four Seasons. I’ve always associated Four Seasons with top notch luxury and couldn’t wait to shop their new Four Seasons at Home collection when I heard they were launching an online shop (here). You can buy their superior bedding, quality mattresses, pillows, duvets, and more to bring your bedroom experience to the same high-quality level as seen at their properties around the world. What better time to buy than this holiday season, whether it’s a gift for yourself or loved ones needing an upgrade in luxury! Their sheets are made from 100% Supima cotton and feature a sateen finish for a luxurious feel and look
2. Learn to perfect the bed tuck
The combo of a fitted sheet and flat sheet ensure that you’ll create a crisp, clean bed that mimics the hotel experience. Fun fact? Four Seasons typically forgoes the fitted sheet completely. Instead, they carefully fold and tuck the flat sheets into the mattress. I’m in awe of the housekeepers’ art and precision with this, but for me, I’m happy that
3. Add down alternative or down feather pillows, then layer them like a pro
The best hotels will pile on the pillows – Four Seasons typically has a mix of four down alternative or down & feather pillows and two decorative ones. They know that pillows make everything more comfortable when you’re sitting up reading at night. Plus, it makes the bed look better and cozier. Four Seasons at Home offers super plush pillows options with down &feather or down alternative filloptions, all available to shop online from the comfort of your home. These pillows feel lightweight and airy – like you’re sleeping on clouds! As you can tell, the girls are obsessed with them.
4. Use a duvet cover
After you’ve laid down your fitted sheet and layered on the pillows, there’s one final trick to adding that extra fluffy touch – a duvet! Whether you go with a light or down alternative option, duvets are a surefire way to make a bed feel more inviting – and they add the perfect amount of warmth. And the final touch: wrap your new cozy duvet in a crisp, clean duvet cover for that cozy feeling you get when you jump into a hotel bed.
5. Wrap yourself in luxury
I’m usually exhausted by the end of the day, and there’s nothing like slipping into a velvety, hotel-quality robe right before bed. Four Seasons’ classic cotton bath robes are so sumptuous and I always have hard time wanting to take them off. I also couldn’t resist the children’s robes – they’re not only adorable but made with a flame retardant lining. I had to grab two for Hazel and Capri. Any of these robes would make great holiday gifts!
