How To Make Your Room Feel Like a Hotel: With Hotel Quality Bed Sheets, Duvets and Pillows
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? Why not replicate this at home with the help of our guide so you can have the best sleep of your life on the daily. This guide will give you tips on how to make a luxury hotel bed at home.
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 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. To learn more about thread count, read it in our blog post here.
Tip 2: Stick To Predominantly White Bedding

Notice how most hotel beds are white? This was done intentionally. When you view the colour white, your mind subconsciously associates it with cleanliness and freshness. This subconscious association plays a role in why you view hotel beds as clean and fresh so why not do this at home? By using white bed sheets and bedding products, you can come home everyday to a clean and fresh bed. This simple tip can help you achieve a hotel feeling at home.
Tip 3: Replace Your Pillows
You should replace your pillows every 12 to 36 months to ensure that your pillow is of prime “Fluffiness”. By replacing your pillows in shorter intervals such as every 12 months, you would be guaranteed to be free of lumpy pillows.

Layering your bed with a duvet or quilt can make a world of difference in how your beddings look and feel. Firstly, by adding a duvet, you can create a luxurious chic aesthetic similar to that seen in 5 star hotels. Secondly, duvets play a role in giving your bed the key plush and fluffy feeling. This is key to emulating the cloud-like feel of hotel beds.
Tip 5: Use Scents
Our previous tips mainly cover how your room can look and feel like a hotel. To fully immerse yourself and encapsulate the ambience of a hotel room, you need to be aware of your other 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.
Tip 6: Wash Your Sheets The Hotel Way
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 hotel sheets over the long run, you have to wash your sheets the same way hotels do. Hotels use a combination of laundry detergent, baking soda and cold water for stain removal. They would then wash the sheets with laundry detergent. 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 the best care.
