You must have at one time been to a hotel and loved everything about it. From the way the bed seems to welcome and embrace you to the beautiful furniture and decorations that makes you wish you can stay forever. All these extra touches add up to make your stay a memorable one. Having a home that looks and feels like a luxury hotel can be all shades of enthralling. However, it may require quite a bit of work to get your home to that level. Here are a few tips that will help you give your home that luxury hotel look.
1. De-Clutter Your Home
Hotel rooms look inviting because of how spacious, tidy, and clutter-free they look. You must do the same for your home if you intend on make it look its best. Keep your decorations down to a few essential pieces and put away anything (clothes, kid’s toys, unpaid bills, etc.) that’s lying around and distracts from a clean, uncluttered look.
2. Edit Your Bedroom
People tend to ignore the bedroom when decorating because it’s hidden from prying eyes of houseguests. However, simple changes to the bed sheets, pillows, and curtains can do a lot to freshen the look of the bedroom. White bed sheet and comforters are particularly popular at luxury hotel rooms because they radiate that fresh, clean, and spacious feel.
3. Use Lavish Lighting
Making use of lavish lighting in your home to highlight certain areas or to create the proper mood. Wall sconces, chandeliers, and spotlights can be used in a way to bring out that luxurious hotel look. Side table lamps do a good job as well. You also can make use of dimmers to avoid casting a harsh, bright light.
4. Add A Touch of Flowers
Roses are beautiful and so would your home look when you add a touch of flowers and greenery. An antique vase with fresh cut flowers sitting on a table is just perfect.
5. Make Use of Oversized Furniture
Oversized furniture usually exudes that look of luxuriousness. Be it sofas or chairs, when set up properly, super-sized furniture can be quite comfy. Plus, because it’s larger, it becomes a focal point of the room and draws the eye. So, don’t be afraid to introduce oversized furniture into your home decor plans.
6. Introduce “White” to Your Home
Luxury hotels embrace a lot of white, from the blankets down to the bathroom towels and the dining room plates. One word for this is enchanting. Using white to demonstrate cleanliness without trying to hide dirt behind a bunch of busy patterns is why the color white is synonymous with luxury. You could also do the same in your home as well.
7. Don’t Forget the Bathroom
You haven’t completed your home decoration plans if you leave out the bathroom. Bathrooms, especially bathtubs, are hideaways after the stress from the day’s activities. Thus, be sure to give your bathroom a welcoming and luxurious look. A Jacuzzi tub, beautiful faucets, large mirrors, and soft, ambient lighting are important features of your bathroom.
8. Put Up Some Artwork
Artwork for your walls and niches are also features that can give your home that hotel look. You don’t have to break the bank to do this. Simply select a few inexpensive pieces that you like, especially if it’s a local artist to support their work. Interesting artwork in a room serves as a good conversation starter for guests.
9. Add a Seating Area
When carrying out your home decoration, add a few comfortable chairs if you have the space. If you do not have space, don’t worry. Just set a small chair by the window where you can relax and read a book. Luxury hotel rooms have plenty of chairs and sitting areas where you can relax, put your feet up, or chat away with friends.
