Traveling is hardly stress free under the best of circumstances, and these days the prospect of heading out of town or getting on a plane is even more fraught. While you might not be able to explore a foreign city this year, there’s one part of the vacation experience you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home. With a little effort, and a few key purchases, you can turn your bedroom into a serene paradise worthy of the most luxurious five-star hotel. Read on for tips on giving your bed the luxury hotel treatment.
Choose All-White Bedding
The finest hotels typically choose all-white bedding, and for good reason. Not only is white bedding easy to wash, but it also looks fresh and clean, so guests can feel confident slipping between the sheets. Additionally, white bedding is soothing to the eye. There’s something about the sight of a fluffy white duvet that makes you want to snuggle in for the night. If you’re looking to create the hotel feel at home, consider picking up a Hotel Collection Ultra Percale Duvet Cover.
Select Plenty of Pillows
When was the last time you upgraded your pillows? If it’s been awhile, consider giving yourself the gift of better neck support this year. Take a page out of the luxury hotel design book and opt for at least four standard-sized pillows. While down is a popular choice, those with feather allergies should opt for fiber or an alternative filling. The most inviting beds also have plenty of accent pillows, so choose a wide selection in different colors and textures.
Opt for Egyptian Cotton
Of course, when it comes to designing hotel-worthy accommodations, appearances aren’t everything. The most high-end five-star hotels feature bedding that’s as comfortable as it is attractive, so consider swapping out your current sheets with ones of Egyptian cotton. Made from 100% cotton from the Nile River Valley, real Egypitan cotton sheets feel smooth yet crisp. For the ultimate in luxury, opt for Pure Parima’s Hotel Collection Ultra Percale Sheet Set. Made of crisp matte percale, these sheets are perfect for bringing hotel opulence to the home.
As a bonus, Egyptian cotton can help you rest easier. In fact, the fabric is a favorite choice among allergy sufferers and problem sleepers alike because it’s both breathable and moisture wicking.
You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars a night to sleep in the lap of luxury. With a little inspiration, you can create a bedroom paradise that you’ll long to retreat to at the end of the day. Happy decorating.
