Hotel Style Bedrooms & Bathrooms

Aug 2, 2022

Hotel-style bedrooms and bathrooms are making a comeback and here’s why…

 

When you think of a luxury hotel, what do you picture? Big fluffy beds with crisp white linens and pillows that look like clouds? Maybe an Italian marble bathroom with rain showers and heated floors?

More and more clients are seeking a luxury hotel-inspired bedroom and bathroom for their own home, and it's no surprise why. It seems like we're all looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of life sometimes — something that feels clean, crisp, and luxurious. And now, more than ever, people are looking for ways to bring that feeling into their homes.

Whether you're looking for some inspiration or have already started the process of upgrading your own space, here are some tips on how to create a hotel-style bedroom and bathroom.

How to Create a Hotel-inspired Bedroom

Your bedroom is your sanctuary. It's where you can retreat and recharge, so it should be a peaceful, comfortable space. If you feel like your bedroom lacks that sense of tranquillity, here are some tips to help you create a hotel-inspired bedroom.

Invest in a good quality sturdy bed and a top-quality mattress. Everyone knows the best part of staying away is diving into those extra cosy beds! You want to be able to relax and unwind when you're in your bedroom, so make it’s worth spending a decent amount of money on a good quality bed with a mattress you can comfortably sink into.

Overlay bedding and lots of pillows. Hotel bedrooms are often covered in soft and luxurious bedding, so why not do the same for your room? Try to find a duvet or blanket that feels good to the touch, and make sure you have plenty of pillows for comfort. If you want some extra luxury, invest in down pillows — they're much softer than your average pillow.

Stick to cool and calm colours like white, green, and blue. Hotels are known for their simple, clean, and calming designs. They often use white or light colours everywhere and incorporate natural materials like wood and stone. This makes them perfect spaces to relax, unwind and get ready for bed after a long day of sightseeing or business meetings. Avoid colours like red and orange, which are stimulating and could diminish the all-important wind-down before sleep.

 

Keep the style minimal on furniture. A vital aspect of a minimalist interior is to keep things clean and decluttered —which can be hard when it comes to a bedroom! You want your bed to feel spacious and airy, but that doesn't mean you should sacrifice storage space or clutter-free surfaces. To do this, opt for fitted furniture as it creates more space and enables you to hide all your clutter.

Include bedside tables and fancy lighting for the ultimate finish. The little details can make or break a room, and you don't want to skimp on those. Bedside tables not only offer you extra storage space, but they also add a touch of sophistication to your room. Next, add some stylish pendant or table lamps to create an atmosphere that feels like you're in a five-star hotel room.

How to Create a Hotel-style Bathroom

We all know how important it is to have a high-quality bathroom. Here are five hotel-style bathroom ideas to help you create the spa-like bathroom of your dreams.

 

Make the bath the focal point with a stand-alone tub. Hotel bathrooms are all about making guests feel pampered and relaxed, and one way they do this is by creating a focal bathtub.

 

Consider a double sink. A single sink just doesn't cut it when it comes to hotel bathrooms — they need to be able to accommodate multiple people at once! Consider installing two sinks (e.g. his and hers) so that multiple people can get ready at once without having to wait their turn or fight over whose turn it is next.

 

Have plenty of space for an open or walk-in shower. This is one area where hotels, even boutique ones, really shine — they tend to have spacious showers that make guests feel like they've been transported into another world. An open shower gives you more space and flexibility and work surprisingly well in small bathrooms.

 

Don't forget the lighting. Lighting is just as important as any other aspect of designing a hotel-style bathroom because it helps set the mood. The best lighting is usually soft, warm, and inviting. Light up the ceiling with a cluster of small lights, or opt for dimmer switches that allow you to adjust the brightness level depending on whether you're trying to relax or get ready in the morning.

 

Splash out on expensive towels. The best towels are plush, soft, and absorbent. They also look good hanging on hooks or shelves in the bathroom. If you can afford it, go with Egyptian cotton towels or at least a high-quality blend of cotton and microfiber. They're softer and more absorbent than regular cotton towels, which means they'll last longer too.

Your bedroom and bathroom should feel like a sanctuary from the rigours of your daily life. Drawing on design principles from the hospitality industry can help create a more welcoming space that encourages you to engage in relaxing, de-stressing activities. These design principles aren't just for fancy hotels — but for any home or apartment, large or small.
