3 Clever Ways To Make A Your Home Feel Like A Hotel For Guests

When traveling, one of the things we look forward to the most is returning to a top notch hotel room after a long day out. The comfortable bed, soft pillows, and pristine white sheets make it a haven for rest and rejuvenation. According to Today, these luxurious touches can go a long way in improving our quality of sleep, thereby ensuring we wake up refreshed.

You might not be able to replicate a five-star hotel experience in your own home, but there are some simple ways to make it feel more like a hotel, and it doesn't have to be difficult or expensive. In fact, with a few easy-to-incorporate design elements and small touches like fluffy towels and scented candles, you can create a relaxing and inviting space that will make you feel like you're on vacation every day.

At a hotel, it's the little things that make all the difference. Here are some tips on how to emulate them at home:

Add a memorable scent

When you walk into a room, what are the most noticeable scents? How a room smells is important, especially when you are hosting guests. The scent of a room can be ingrained into someone's memory forever, so be sure to make a great first impression. 

A welcoming and light aroma will do the trick. Scented candles not only add a lovely fragrance to the air, but create a nice ambiance in the room as well, according to The Idealist. Candle light has a soft, romantic feel that mixes well with the aromas. If you do not want to use candles to add scent, a stylish diffuser can be a nice modern alternative.

Try to find candles or diffusers with clean scents, like fresh cotton or something with citrus. Alternatively, you could grab a fresh bunch of lavender or eucalyptus to add a pop of color along with a wonderful floral aroma to a room. 

Add fresh crisp linens

There is something to be said about hotels and their absolute crisp bedding and how satisfying it is to crawl into them at the end of a long day. Everyone loves the feeling of clean sheets. Adding fresh linens to your bed can make a room feel like a hotel. Not only will they make the bed look and feel luxurious, they will also give your visitors a sense of relaxation and comfort in your guest bedroom. For this, all you have to do is change sheets and pillowcases just before your guests arrive. A linen spray will refresh everything easily too. 

One more thing to invest in is a stack of super-soft pillows. The Sleep Foundation says these are a great choice for a wide range of sleepers. Many people love hotels for their delightfully luxurious down pillows. Be sure to tuck everything in, so that when your guests arrive, they can slide into a nice comfortable bed. 

Add little touches

One way to make a room feel like a hotel is to add small touches. This might include extra toiletries, such as shampoo and conditioner, or a new toothbrush and toothpaste. The Pinning Mama suggests even making a bath basket for your guests, just in case they forget their toiletries.

Adding small touches can also mean placing reading material, such as magazines or books, on a bedside table within easy reach. A colorful floor pillow, if there is space, can brighten up the room and make it more inviting. It also adds another seating option.

Other little upgrades you can make include adding a lovely bouquet of flowers to the room or placing a bottle of water next to the bed. These are all welcoming changes that boost comfort and luxury. Plus, making small changes can also be a cost-effective way to give your home an updated look.
