A stay at a luxurious hotel even for a night is a wish for many people, especially when you finally have a few days off work. From the food to the cozy bedding, luxurious bathrooms, and lots of amenities, the feeling is just amazing. However, luxury hotels don’t usually come cheap. This is not to forget that in these times of the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are still skeptical about staying in hotels.
This is among the reasons why staycations are increasingly becoming popular these days. But even then, a staycation doesn’t have to be boring. The good news is that it’s not so hard to bring this luxurious feel into your home when planning to take a staycation. Here are some easy steps to recreate the hotel feel at home.
Step 1. Home Décor
This can be done easily. You can choose your color theme depending on your favorite color and have your wall painted in line with your theme. Get some wall art done to boost the curb appeal. You can have flowers adhering to your theme so as not to look misplaced. Mixed colors without a plan might ruin the look that you will be trying to portray. Put the flowers in fancy vases and have them neatly placed in the rooms. To boost the luxury appearance, have your rugs, cushions, and other luxurious décor objects matching with your theme. The theme should not be necessarily single-colored, but you can have colors that are closely related to give it the desired look. Lighting should be moderately done.
Step 2. Make Your Bedroom Look Luxurious
The bedroom is one of the places you will want to look the best. It is an easy process once you consider some factors. For example, you can choose a beautiful headboard that has an outstanding characteristic like a rare shape. You can also have charmingly attractive lighting whether you use table lamps, pendants, or ceiling fixtures. Add a fancy seat in front of your bed, preferably near a window to bring an attractive design into your room. To add the luxurious look, you can have mirrors all over like behind every pendant light or lamp.
Most importantly, comfort is key when it comes to bringing luxury into the bedroom. This means investing in a quality mattress for your bed, as well as cozy and comfortable bedding. In a recent Sleep Authorities review on Keetsa, Kristen Greif comprehensively discusses these memory foam hybrid mattresses. They have various models that you can choose from depending on your sleeping preferences and budget. Don’t forget to add a soft throw blanket and have a luxurious pile of pillows on your bed.
Step 3. Create Coziness
Acquiring coziness can be a very nice skill especially for a creative mind. It can be done by employing warm and soothing scents, textiles, and textures. It can also be done by lighting sweet-smelling and colored candles, crackling fire in the fireplace, curling under warm blankets, and having a warm drink when relaxing. You can also read your favorites novellas or watch favorite films or have a board game.
Step 4. Creating Time for Spa Services
It is not a must for you to go out when you need spa services. You can create your own spa at home and freely enjoy your moment. You can start by creating a silent alone time, preferably by switching off your phone. Then take some tea or coffee to calm your nerves. You can also have a moment for a foot spa to have you get more relaxed and enjoy the service just as you could have enjoyed elsewhere.
Step 5. Introduce a Towel Warming Rack and Have Fluffy Towels
Fluffy white towels are soft and cozy. You will certainly enjoy your bath when you use warm, cozy, and fresh towels. A towel warming rack will maintain the warmth you need for your towel and will keep them fresh for longer, hence maintaining their coziness. Ensure that the towels are well placed on the rack. This definitely matches the types of towels you find in fancy hotels, bringing this luxury home.
Step 6. Use Beautiful Glassware
People definitely enjoy the fancy glassware used to serve, especially drinks in luxurious hotels. You can bring the feeling home by acquiring that type of glassware and using them at home. They can be of different types, sizes, and models. All the utensils can be of that type. They are available at different prices. If you can afford it, get the high-end options because the higher the price, the fancier they look. However, cheaper ones that look as good are also available.
Bringing the luxurious hotel feeling home will enable you and your loved ones to enjoy the stay at home. It will also minimize your need to spend a lot of money staying at fancy hotels, thus enabling you to save as much as possible. You don’t even have to spend an arm and a leg doing it. You can look for more affordable alternatives that are still fancy and will serve the purpose.
