There is nothing quite like falling into a fancy hotel bed. What is it exactly that is so special about hotel bedding? Let’s take a look at the different aspects that stand out about drifting off into dreamland in a hotel room.
Quality Comes First
If you want a luxurious hotel bedding experience at home, you have to pick out sheets with the highest thread count possible. The higher the thread count, the softer the sheet. Ideally, you should pick out Egyptian cotton sheets with a thread count of around 300 or more. When it comes to a bedspread, find one that is simple, yet stylish.
So Fresh and So Clean
Perception is everything. To your mind’s eye, white linens make a room look fresh and clean. They give the appearance of the room being new and updated. White signifies luxury, and people often signify it with having a good night’s sleep. In addition to this, white bed linens increase a guest’s confidence in how clean a hotel is. Bring this element of white into your home and this feeling is sure to follow.
A Tight Fit
If you want your bed to look like a hotel, learn how to make a bed properly. First of all, hotels don’t generally make a bed with a fitted sheet. They use a flat sheet and wrap it tightly around the mattress. The bedspread is usually folded down and tucked in tightly around the edges.
Having to stuff a duvet isn’t the easiest thing to do. However once you have done it, you will realize how it was all worth it. A luxurious, heavy down comforter with a lightweight cotton duvet is such a commonly-found ingredient in the best hotel bedding. While you are at it, you might as well go all the way and put a featherbed on top of your mattress. Talk about luxury.
One way that you may have noticed that hotels bring attention to their beds is by accenting them with a myriad of pillows and throws. Adding layers and layers of pillows is a great idea. The more, the better. Ideally, 2-4 down pillows are required, 2 fiber-filled and a few just for decoration are recommended.
Set the Mood
At home, you can’t call the front desk and ask for strawberries and champagne, but you can still set the mood to make your bedroom feel more like a hotel. Just dim the lights, listen to your favorite music, turn down your sheets and lay on your fabulous new hotel-like bedding.
