How Hotels Give Their Beds a Pampering and Luxurious Feel (Tips to Make Your Bed Feel Luxurious)
Staying in a hotel gives one the feeling of practically wanting to always jump on the bed with joy due. This is because of a hotel bed’s pampering and luxurious feel coupled with super-soft sheets, excellently tucked duvet and fluffy pillows. Indeed, sleeping on a hotel bed is an out of this world treat!
So how can you replicate the same standard on your bed? How can you transform your bed to be luxurious? Is it possible to recreate the same indulgent and come up with your pampering bedroom environment?
Yes, it is very much possible.
This is how you go about it …
The Magical Featherbed
Want to add a cloud, cozy and plush-like feeling to your bed? You need to a featherbed. The featherbed element gives hotel beds a comfy feel that makes clients want to sleep and/or cuddle up.
The good thing about featherheads is the fact that you do not need to break the bank to own one. Discount store versions are always available and will do the trick, provided you compliment them with top-notch sheets and pillows.
The Enchanted White Linens
White linens, from spotless white sheets to all-white duvet, characterize rooms of most luxurious hotels. Their whiteness radiates contemporary coolness. Hotels also prefer the white color scheme as it reads renovated, new and fresh.
Color white is efficient at creating such a calming focal point to give any room a meditative and spa-like look and feel. Additionally, the fact that white linens are effortless to bleach is not a bad feature either.
The rule of thumb when using white linens is to always ensure that your headboard is not too stark or cold. Put in place warm accents in your bedroom to ensure your space feels cozy and luxe.
According to the Sleep Foundation, 71% of sleepers enjoy better and high-quality sleep on clean and top-notch bed sheets. Because hotels appreciate this fact, they invest in top of the line sheets.
Rather than investing in fitted sheets, they utilize flat sheets. To guarantee a smooth fit, hotels tuck their sheets into their beds utilizing hospital corners.
Once that is done, another top sheet is placed beneath the duvet or comforter. This strategy helps in stocking similar sheets as well as saving the time cleaners take to make beds.
In addition to that, tucking of sheets in that style gives a clean and neat fit. Hotels do not entertain overstretched elastic corners or saggy fitted pockets of sheets as they make bed sheets wear out faster.
Another important highlight of bed sheets used by hotels is that they need to feature a 300-thread count. The percale sheets are made using long-staple cotton-like Pima or Egyptian cotton. 300 thread count in high-end cotton such as Pima or Egyptian is all you require to enjoy a luxurious feel.
Percale sheets are an incredible choice if you are into a cool or crisp feeling. These types of sheets normally soften up with time. Moreover, they guarantee you a classic feel. Another great attribute about these sheets is the fact that they are more breathable and feel lighter compared to others. They are the best bet, especially during the summer months.
Percale bed sheets are a darling of many hotels as they hold up excellently and tend to get better with more and more washes.
A good alternative to percale sheets is sateen sheets. These are a great option for those that prefer a smoother and silkier feel coupled with drape and luster.
Note: When it comes to bedsheets, you pay for quality. For this reason, do not fret to splurge for higher-quality sheets. Top-notch bed sheets are easier to clean and durable.
Remarkable Plush Pillows
Nothing beats the feeling of sinking into a bed with fluffy, plush and large pillows. If your bed is king-sized or queen-sized, it is prudent to add four or five pillows. For a posher look, reserve two pillows to stand or rest against your bed frame. You can opt to ”chop” the pillows or not. The call is yours.
Many hotels incorporate a feather/down or down pillow alongside choices. Such pillows guarantee a plush and sumptuous environment.
One of the most notable things about hotel beds is the fact that they utilize flat sheets in place of the fitted bottom sheets. A hospital fold comes in handy in this regard. Once they lay a flat sheet over a mattress, 4-sided sheets are tucked on the mattress.
This leaves a leftover material that sticks out from the corners. With the corners, you can create a 45-degree angle and tuck them under firmly.
To make sure you show off the pillows, fold down the duvet or comforter.
Of great importance to note is that luxurious hotel beds are wrinkle-free and smooth. Ironing or steaming your bedding is unnecessary. Rather, all you need to maintain is a spray bottle containing water close to the bed.
Spraying your sheets and duvet with a slight mist of water from time to time will give them the good look and feel they need to have.
