Best Expert Suggestions - Create a Hotel-Worthy Bed With These Tips

What’s your favorite part of going on vacation? Is it the sandy beaches? Beautiful vistas and exotic sites? Or is the best aspect of a getaway the nights spent sleeping in a luxury hotel? Between the crisp sheets and cloud-like duvets, hotel beds have a richness that inspires guests to settle in and unwind. Additionally, these beds tend to feature calming colors and designs to help sleepers decompress after busy days. If you can’t afford a trip this year, consider taking steps to enjoy hotel-worthy luxury at home. Here are some tips to make your bed hotel-chic on a budget. 

Premium Fabrics

One of the best parts of slipping between the sheets of a hotel bed is, well, the feel of the sheets. Typically, four and five-star accommodations stock premium sheets to help guests catch more Zs. If you’re looking to recreate the hotel experience at home, we suggest indulging in sheets made from 100 percent certified Egyptian cotton. A great option for those who love silky soft sheets that are also breathable, the Hira Set from Pure Parima is crafted from extra-long staple cotton and boasts a buttery texture. The Cotton Egypt Association-certified collection comes complete with a flat sheet, a fitted sheet, and two coordinating pillowcases. Shoppers can choose from an array of hues, including traditional neutrals and bolder shades like Grey, Spa, and Midnight. 

Well-Fitted Sheets

Hotel sheets don’t just feel crisp and clean. They’re also pleasing to the eye. If you want to increase the aesthetic feel of your master or guest room, we recommend choosing sheets that fit the bed well. After all, loose or wrinkled sheets tend to look messy and uninviting. For best results, make sure to buy the right sheet size (twin, full, queen, king, or California king) and replace fitted sheets when they need it. You can also protect your sheets by washing them according to the package instructions. 

Folded Corners

Along with ensuring sheets are the right size, savvy home designers take care when making the bed. We love when hosts fold the top sheet down and use hospital corners at the bottom. It’s a great option for showing off the different layers of bedding so guests know what’s in store when they slip into bed. The overall effect is sleek, organized, and exceptionally inviting. Want to pick up an extra flat sheet for fall? We love the autumnal elegance of the Mimosa Multi Percale Sheet. Featuring a fresh yet seasonally appropriate floral, the piece has a soothing color palette and fresh texture that works great for chilly nights. Stock it in the linen cabinet so you’ll never be at a loss for bedding.

Plenty of Pillows

Whether you’re napping, sleeping, reading, or snuggling up with a sweetie, pillows play a crucial role in making a bed cozy. To that end, those looking to emulate hotel-style bedding should invest in plenty of pillows. Along with standard pillows featuring down or memory foam, we recommend picking up some Euro shams and throws in different sizes. Our Florence Chambray Blue Decorative Pillow Set is a great option for those looking to add style and interest to their space. The collection includes a chunky waffle knit pillow measuring 18 inches by 12 inches, a faux fur pillow measuring 16 inches by 16 inches, and a chambray pillow coming in at 18 inches by 18 inches. The combinations of sizes and fabrics ensures your bed is anything but boring. Note that this collection should be spot cleaned to treat stains. 

Hotel Comforters

One of the most crucial elements of any bed, comforters keep sleepers warm and provide an ideal environment for cuddling. If you want to boost the luxury factor in your room, consider the Bebejan Delphine Blue Reversible Comforter Set. As fresh and breathable as the best hotel bedding, this set is crafted from smooth 100 percent cotton and features a GSM of 250. The front side of the comforter showcases a lovely floral pattern in navy, white, and olive, while the back boasts a faux denim texture. Flip the top of the comforter down for extra interest or turn it over when you need a change. Additionally, the collection comes with two reversible shams, two decorative pillows, and a bonus bag for convenient storage. The set is machine washable and comes in sizes queen and king. 

Prefer a more neutral look in the bedroom? Echo the simple elegance of hotel designs with the Bianco White 4-Piece Comforter Set. Created by J Queen, this luxury collection features a sophisticated woven damask pattern in soft cream. Oversized and overfilled for extra coziness, the comforter has a unique three dimensional effect that adds interest and charm. Additionally, the collection comes with two matching pillow shams with extra padding and a coordinating bed skirt. Shoppers can choose from sizes queen, king, and California king for this dry clean only set. Additional throw pillows and Euro shams are available for an extra cost.
