Many people are spending time at home due to the pandemic that's brought about the cancellation of travel plans. But not to worry, as you can turn your house into feeling like a five-star luxury hotel.

Here you will spend time in the comfort of your home, indulging in hotel vibes. However, to get your house to mimic a luxury hotel, consider a five-star experience such as bath amenities, robes, and beddings, then incorporate them into your home. Here are the ways:

1. Replace Your Heating And Cooling System

Every time you get into a luxury hotel, you experience clean air, making your stay comfortable. If you don't have a great system, go on to a website that deals with HVAC and get connected to a professional who can replace it.

A great system will regulate the temperature level in your home to the one you desire. It also reduces stuffiness making your home feel like a luxury hotel.

2. Buy Luxurious Bedding 

The easiest way to elevate your bedroom is by changing your sheets into a gorgeous set. For that beautiful hotel room feeling, opt for white beddings with a thread count of at least 300. You can use a top sheet and a fitted sheet when making the bed.

However, you can go for materials that are most comfortable for you, like bamboo sheets. And for that extra feel, consider having your sheets professionally laundered.

3. European Pillows

Most high-end hotels think through different pillow combinations. European pillows are the most suitable as they are large and mostly squared to provide an anchor for the back of your bed. When placed well, they offer a great visual but are also functional.

They will also offer you comfort whenever you want to watch a movie or get lost in a great book. As a result of the pillow size, your bed will look and feel luxurious.

Add Fluffy Towels and Bathrobes In Your Bathroom. The one part most people look forward to is getting out of the shower and putting on a cozy bathrobe. You can buy a plush bathrobe in your favorite color or go for a white one similar to the hotels.

Alternatively, you can order one from your favorite hotel if they have them for sale. A waffle weaved bathrobe will most likely look luxe and feel comfy as it absorbs water very quickly.

4. Purchase The Best Mattress

The urge to throw yourself on a hotel bed is usually so strong as it envelops you in pure comfort. And especially after a long day of sightseeing, hotel beds put you to instant sleep due to the level of comfort it offers.

In most hotels, mattresses are six layers of thick padding with a 13-inch pillow top. You can incorporate this mattress into your bedroom and top it off with the bedding we discussed above for the ultimate comfort.

5. Stock Up On Indulgent Bath Products

Hotels, deep soaking tubs, and beautiful rain showers are usually effectively pampering. Chances of recreating that at home may be low, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy your bath times. All you need is indulgent bath products with skincare essentials that will leave you feeling fresh and moisturized.

Additionally, buy fancy toiletries of the same brand and place a set of hand cream and wash on the sink. You can also get fancy glass jars for your cotton wool and buds. Place these jars on a decorative tray along with perfumes.

6. Get Scented Candles

Scented candles will give your house a fantastic hotel-like pleasure and transport you into a tranquil oasis without stepping out of your home. You can pick a scent that takes you back to a hotel room.

When picking a candle, go for one with excellent packaging that blends in with your décor. Alternatively, invest in stylish diffusers that let you add in different oils of your choice.

7. Use Faux Flowers For Decoration

Real flowers add some color and an uplifting accent to a room. However, they are tiring to make as it involves putting, arranging, making sure they are watered and have enough sunlight only to wither the following week.

As a result, you can use faux flowers with a spray of fragrance that will last longer and have the same effect. So, get an arrangement of fake flowers in decorative vases that brings the hotel feel into your home.

Bottom Line

Get that hotel feeling of comfort in your home by adding a few touches to your home. Begin by replacing your HVAC system, especially if yours is old and worn out. The new system will let you experience the same clean air you can get in a hotel setting.

Next, change the beddings by getting white sheets of any material of your choice. For your pillows, get European pads that provide great visuals while functional. And for additional luxury in your bathroom, get fluffy towels and bathrobes that offer more comfort.

Replace your mattress with one that's similar to a hotel one. It should have thick padding with a 13- inch pillow top for added comfort—stock up on indulgent bath products that can pamper and scented candles to provide a hotel-like pleasure.
