But did you know that you can recreate that experience right in your own bedroom? In this guide, we'll show you how to make your bed the 5-star hotel way, stay with us as we walk you through the steps…
- Step 1: Start With A High-Quality Mattress
Mattresses are the core foundation of your sleep, it can make or break your sleep quality. This is the reason you see most of these 5-star hotels use custom made mattresses for their hotels. If you’re looking to get mattresses that will make you feel like you’re sleeping in a 5-star hotel, we recommend our signature mattress and Sublime mattress at LSA Home.
- Step 2: A Mattress Protector
After you have made the decision to invest in a premium mattress the next is a mattress protector. Covering your mattress and pillows with a protector, securing it over the corners is a great deal. They protect against stains and odors, and are much easier to wash than a whole pillow. Also, you can’t wash a mattress, but you can protect it using a mattress protector.
- Step 3: Fitted Sheet
This layer is the base of your perfectly made bed, it needs to be secure and wrinkle-free with its elastic corners. Make sure the shorter ends of the fitted sheet are at the foot and head. Pull the sheet corners over the mattress corners until it is tight and secure.
- Step 4: Flat Sheet/Top Sheet
This goes at the top of your fitted sheet while making your bed the 5-star hotel way. It is the layer you cover yourself with, so you need to ensure it’s comfortable and with the highest thread count. Lay the flat sheet upside down, with the wider part at the head, make sure it’s centered, neatly fold in the bottom two corners and tuck the sides under the mattress.
- Step 5: Add Layers With Duvet
If you take your time to observe hotel beds, you’ll notice they make use of layers to bring out that plushy feeling, you can achieve this by adding a duvet into the mix. Place your duvet on the bed and line it up with the flat sheet making sure the sides and corners hang evenly over the mattress. You can leave the duvet this way, or fold it down with the top sheet so the wide hem of the top sheet is also visible.
- Step 6: Pillows Talks
More is more when it comes to pillows, that’s why you see 5-star hotels stuff their beds with pillows. Put your pillowcases on the pillows you sleep with and the shams on fluffy pillows you may not sleep with. Layer the bed pillows at the head of your bed, and the sham covered pillows on the top. Also you can use a few decorative ones as well like the throw pillows and give them a fluffier look on your bed using the ‘karate chop’ method.
- Step 7: Layer in style with a throw
To add an extra touch of luxury, drape a quilt or throw blanket at the foot of your bed. This not only adds warmth but also enhances the overall aesthetics.
Now that your bed looks and feels as amazing as a 5-star retreat, it's time to hop in and enjoy some quality ZZZs.
