I'm pretty sure everyone loves a good getaway and I've been to a couple of good Luxury Hotels and it felt like the sleep was sweeter (lol). mind you,This is not about food or great service I think its just because every single thing in there is meant to put you at ease and get you so comfortable that you wouldn't want to leave. So just imagine if you can feel this way every day, how you would like the idea of making your own bedroom feel like a luxury hotel bedroom?

So lets go over these 8 ways that would instantly turn your regular Bedroom to a Luxury Hotel Room.

  1. most luxury hotel rooms are usually white or neutral colours and I think it's because they expect a lot of people with different styles and taste to come in so it’s wise to play safe with colours so that anybody who comes in can feel really comfortable and at home away from home. Your first choice of Colour should be a neutral colour but because it’s your personal space you should select the best colours that suit your personality, it can always be accentuated with any wall treatment, decoration and accessories.                                                                                                                                                                           
  1. Your sheets and duvet are not left out; Make your bedding white, and pillow cases. Make sure your duvet is fluffy and full of Fiber as well as the pillows. it may be difficult to wash your duvet as frequently as hotels do, and you can’t certainly pile up white space consuming duvet so I would advise that you can use an old duvet but make multiple duvet covers so that you can easily take out the white cover or case and wash whenever without having to carry or pile up different duvets, just the same way you change your pillow cases.


  1.  Have at least four soft pillows on your bed and at least two throw pillows ,I think I have 5 I like to see pillows all over the place. The throw pillows can either be furry or regular comfy material. Another thing you should have on your bed is an overlay sash(bed runner). An overlay sash should be made luxury fabric and yet softs. in most hotels it would have the same material of fabric with the throw pillows, something matching; it just adds some Colour and style to the room.


  1. Lighting is a very important part of luxury bedrooms or hotel rooms you need to have bright lights as well as accent lights or mood light, you should also have a lamp stand or table lamp by your bed and if possible a control switch by your bed also so that you don't have to stand up to turn off or control the light.


  1. Hotel beds are usually upholstery beds with high headboards or a beautiful bed made of fine wood, this kind of bed usually has a taste and feel of luxury. If your bed doesn't come with side drawers you can get bespoke Side stool to put your table lamp on or anything you’d want on need to also Invest in a good mattress ,a firm one or an Orthopedic one as is the case in most hotels, it’s not only comfortable and durable its safe for your back and physical well being


  1. How would you love to get off the bed and your feet Falls onto a very lush comfy surface . Get a good rug preferably a shaggy or furry rug the Rug could be any Colour as long as it fits with the general idea, theme or Colour of the bedroom. The size of the rug should be at your discretion.



  1. You need a good entertainment system, a nice big screen .Every hotel has that and you certainly don’t want to leave your bedroom to go watch TV in the living room that defeats the aim of your make shift hotel room.


8. Create a seating area for yourself and maybe a guest, luxury hotels have this, its typically a chair and a coffee table depending on how big your bedroom is ,so that you can lazy off your bed to the sofa and just keep lazying around.


     Other things that can help you achieve this are;

  1. Make sure to de-clutter your space ,keep clothing in the wardrobe and shoes on rack.
  2. Clean your bedroom regularly.
  3. Keep the air clean and fresh and above all learn to turn off your phone (you don’t want to be trying to and someone is buzzing your phone…I hate that) sometime and order for food delivery.

      When browsing for accommodations online, future travelers are looking for rooms that reflect modern comfort and value for money. Naturally, better-looking rooms lead to more bookings. It’s as simple as that.

      So, how do you tackle dated accommodations to meet the quality stay guests expect to enjoy? It’s actually easier than you think because it’s the small details that count most. Here are five affordable ways to improve the look (and feel) of your rooms, encouraging travelers to book, not bounce, when they see your property online.

      #1 Change patterned linens

      Chain and independent hotels alike often suffer from tacky, patterned linens that also happen to be flat and synthetic. Don’t be one of them.

      Since your property’s website and online profiles shows multiple room images, future travelers are certainly going to focus on the bed linens. To update those on a budget, swap old, patterned blankets for new, solid-colored ones. Choose neutral tones, or go for plush, white duvets to play it safe. White is practical for cleaning purposes, and it also works well to brighten up a room to make it feel more spacious.

      Tip: According to’s study From Economy to Luxury, What Matters Most to Hotel Guests, travelers from all price ranges look for accommodations that have comfortable beds. Given that the quality of your linens impacts the perception of comfort significantly, go with textiles that are made of natural fibers, like cotton and down-feathers, over synthetics. This doesn’t mean you have to break the bank doing so, but the upgrade in fabrics will help to improve profits as more and more guests are likely to post positive reviews of a satisfied stay.

      #2 Paint walls with neutral tones

      Gone are the days of soft yellows, contrasting accent walls, and dated wallpaper patterns. It’s easy to give rooms a much-needed, inexpensive facelift by simply painting them with pale pastels or neutral tones. This color palette also helps to make space feel brighter and roomier.

      Guests value chic, modern interiors that feel warm and relaxing after a long trip. So much so that a trend emerged on how to “hotelify” the home. That’s right, travelers love contemporary hotel interiors, and they want to incorporate them into their own home decor. Well-known interior decorating brands are doing their part by offering luxury, hotel-quality paints for purchase, conveniently available at your local hardware store.

      Tip: If you need sparks of inspiration, have a look at Pinterest or even design sites, like Design School and Houzz, to see professional color-palette ideas for free.

      #3 Remove dated and faded pictures  

      You know the ones we’re referring to. They evoke little emotion, were probably fairly cheap to begin with, and they really have no relevance to a hotel’s design concept. It’s time to get rid of them.

      Guests, now more than ever, are looking for memorable hotel stays and local experiences. Millennials, in particular, crave the unique. So, it’s best to replace old prints for local art, impactful photos of your destination, or vintage pieces that help to tell the story of your property and its surroundings. The best part is that it can be an inexpensive fix with a significant impact.

      TipLocal art can often be acquired on loan from a local gallery in exchange for cross-promotion at your property. Alternatively, great photos of your location can be a fun, do-it-yourself project, too. Have a decent photographer in the family or on staff? Ask them to take high-quality photos of local landmarks and then have them printed and framed. If you like the idea of printing photographs onto canvas, check Groupon for great deals. And for eclectic and vintage pieces, head to the local flea market and garage sales to curate a collection that can tell your property’s story.

      #4 Invest in comfortable, modern chairs

      Most properties follow a classic concept to furnish their rooms, and the chances are good that yours does too: a bed, two nightstands, a closet, a desk, and a chair. If the chair is vinyl or matches the carpet, it needs to go.

      The increasingly blurred line between business and leisure travel means that guests are working and trying to wind down on the same trip. So, give them a chair that’s comfortable and modern. Many designers suggest natural fibers whenever possible, with the freedom of mixing textures, too. When selecting new chairs, also consider the contours and overall comfort because you’ll want to offer something that’s as functional as the form is attractive. It’s inexpensive to do, and it’s also bound to get noticed.

      Tip: Feel free to mix and match colors or styles throughout your rooms so long as they fit your new, neutral and soft-color palettes. Check your local home furniture stores for seasonal deals and bulk-buy offers. Before purchasing multiple pieces, you could test one out to see how it looks in a room.

      #5 Rearrange room layout

      Many properties have an old-fashioned room layout and concept. If yours does, then dare to be different in order to catch travelers’ attention.

      A cheap and easy way to have rooms stand out is by changing the flow of the layout. This makes rooms appear inviting and unique, which is something that the modern traveler is definitely looking for while searching for their ideal accommodation. The best part? This is absolutely free to do.

      Tip: Try moving sofas and chairs around, so that they aren’t against one wall. Provide a suite-like look by placing the chair and desk against the window, or the sofa across from the bed. Juxtapose any signature furniture pieces and, above all else, innovate and play with the cheapest of these hotel room tips to improve your look online.

      How affordable are these 5 ways to improve the look of your hotel rooms?

      If you aren’t quite sure how cost-effective these ideas are, let’s do a little math.

      First, look at the profit from an average night’s stay. Next, divide a per-room budget by that number to see how many nights it will take until you break even. Once you have that figure, feel free to increase or decrease your budget based on what’s reasonable.

      Then, start small with one or two rooms to test the impact that these inexpensive and effective design tips have on improving the look of your rooms. Last but not least, don’t forget to photograph them and upload them to your website and trivago profile to grab the attention of your potential guests.
