Hotel Bedding: How To Make Your Room Feel Like A Hotel
The hotel sleep experience is what most of us would describe as the epitome of comfort. Nothing is comparable to crawling into your hotel bed after a long day of travel. But why do we limit ourselves to only having this experience of comfort on holidays? This guide will give you tips on how to replicate luxury hotel bedding sets at home so you can have the best sleep of your life on the daily!
Tip 1: Use Sheets With High Thread Counts
Most experts unanimously agree that bed sheets with a thread count of 200 to 600 are optimum for comfort. However, for most a bed sheet with a thread count of above 400 would be ideal. Hotel luxury bed sheets mainly use 300-thread count cotton bed sheets or sheets that have a 600-thread count. This specific range of thread counts give the distinct signature soft feel of hotel queen sheets. Thus a bed sheet with a thread count within this range would be ideal to emulate this hotel-esque feel.
Additionally, most of us are misled to believe that thread count is the only factor affecting the quality of bed sheets. However, that is not the case as the thread count number can be manipulated. There are also other factors that come into play such as weave method, ply, yarn count, type of material used, etc.
Tip 2: Stick To Predominantly White Bedding
Notice how most hotel style bedding is in white, fitted sheet sets? This was done intentionally. When you view the color white, your mind subconsciously associates it with cleanliness and freshness. This subconscious association plays a role in why you view the best luxury hotel bedding sets as clean and fresh. By using white bed sheets and bedding products, you can come home everyday to a clean and fresh bed. Remember this simple tip when buying bed sheets to help you achieve a hotel feel bedroom design at home!
Tip 3: Replace Your BEDDING
You should replace your sheets every every 2-3 years and pillows every 12 to 36 months to ensure prime quality. By replacing your pillows in shorter intervals such as every 12 months, you would be guaranteed to be free of lumpy pillows.
You can also fluff your pillows to further add to their volume. Simply lift it up and quickly compress and decompress it. By making your pillows fluffy, you can recreate the soft and plush experience of hotel pillows.
Tip 4: Layer With A Duvet
Layering your bed with a duvet, quilt or comforter can make a world of difference in how your beddings look and feel. Firstly, by adding a duvet plus a duvet cover, you can create a luxurious chic aesthetic similar to that seen in 5 star hotels. Secondly, TENCEL™ or 100% cotton duvets play a role in giving your bed the key plush and fluffy feeling. This is key to emulating the cloud-like hotel feeling at home.
Tip 5: Use Scents

Our previous tips mainly cover how to make your room feel like a hotel - in aesthetic, texture, and quality. To fully immerse yourself and encapsulate the ambience of a hotel style bedroom, you need to be aware of your senses. One of the most overlooked senses is your sense of smell. Common scents used in hotels are lavender, sandalwood, vanilla and cedar.
By using similar scents in your room, you can elevate your sleep experience. Some ways to incorporate scents into your room include a scented candle, room sprays and essential oils diffusers. Using a pillow sleep spray can also give your room a relaxing vibe, while allowing you to drift off into deeper sleep and sweet dreams.
Tip 6: Wash Your Sheets The Hotel Way
Featuring Mundo Eco Laundry Detergent Sheets
Most people overlook the importance of how sheets are washed. Buying the right sheets is only the first step. However if you want your bed sheets to feel like luxury sheets over the long run, you have to wash your sheets the same way hotels do. They use a combination of laundry detergent, baking soda, and cold water for stain removal. Hotels would then wash the sheets with laundry detergent - better if you can find eco-friendly options that are tough on dirt but gentle on the skin. Following up with a fabric softener and finishing up with bleach.
These steps will make certain that your sheets would feel and look like hotel quality sheets throughout their lifespan. This can also make your bed feel and smell like that of a hotel. However do always check the wash and care guide of your bedding to ensure proper maintenance.
