Have you ever visited a place far away from your home? Maybe you’ve been on a business trip or a vacation. Either way, you’ve probably experienced a night or two living luxuriously in a hotel.
It’s a wonderful thing, living in a hotel. You get to live in a room where you can feel very relaxed and calm. A cosy, elegant place. As a matter of fact, for some people, living in a hotel is the best thing about going to places far from their homes.
But did you ever wonder what it is that makes a hotel a hotel? Did you ever wonder if you could replicate that in your home? You could, and it is absolutely doable. Well, we can’t reproduce ALL of the hotel’s features. That would include hiring a staff and some chefs. No. Let’s just replicate the most important part: A hotel’s room.
If you have some guests coming over and maybe spending the night, you would want them to feel absolutely comfortable, right? Unless you want them to see you as an unaccommodating person.
So let’s focus on a guest bedroom. How do you make your guest bedroom feel like a hotel bedroom? Here are some things you could do:
- Loft conversion
If you don’t have a guest bedroom yet, I suggest you build it in your loft. Or if you already have one, I advise you to move it there. A loft conversion is a term used for the renovation of one’s loft to give it more utility and function. Also, it can increase your home’s overall property value.
The reason you’d want your guest bedroom in a renovated loft is because your loft is the highest place in your home. You can add a balcony to it so your guests can enjoy the view from up above. After all, a beautiful view is what makes some hotels classy.
Your converted loft should have a suitable design, preferably a classic look. Wimbledon Loft Specialists have some designs you could check out.
- Use only the most necessary furniture
Furnishing is a great aspect in hotel rooms. Furnishing can be the difference between a hotel and a house. So how do you furnish your guest bedroom? Easy. Use only the most essential furniture. By using only a few, but elegant, furniture, your guest bedroom will seem a lot bigger and tidier. Use the biggest, comfiest furniture you can get your hands on.
- Thicker is better
When spending a night in a hotel, you will notice that they use thick fabrics for their rooms. So I suggest you do the same. Use a thick blanket for the bed. Decorate the loft’s windows with thick curtains. Use a thick rug for the floor. Provide thick towels for your guests.
Keep your decorations to a minimum. It will make the room look like clutter if it’s too much. Do you know what type of decoration can boost a room’s elegance? Art. Beautiful pieces of art with some classic dark frames, that’s what you want.
Do these things and your guests will surely feel like their staying at a hotel. And that’s something you can brag about!
