How to make a hotel like bed
Do you miss the fluffy bed from your last vacation? Hotel beds have a charm that helps us relax and sleep better. We have found the secret to creating the perfect hotel like bed at home. Read along for a step by step process to create your own fluffy bed.
1. Invest in a Good Mattress
A good bed is the foundation for a good sleep. Therefore, invest in a good quality mattress first. Take your pick from therapeutic beds to normal spring beds. However, if you already have a mattress and don’t want to get rid of it, then flip it. This simple trick makes your mattress feel like new and enhances the lifespan of your bed too. Still don’t feel the softness? Layer your mattress with either a feather bed, which gives it extra fluff, or a memory foam mattress that relieves pressure. Both help you get a marshmallow-like feel for a comfortable sleep.
2. Use Sheets With a Good Thread Count
Love the silky texture of hotel linens? The secret is using an Egyptian cotton, 300-thread-count bed sheet that feels fresh and soft. Thread count is a measure of how many threads are woven into one square inch of a piece of fabric. In the Indian market, though, it’s a relatively alien term. Some e-commerce retailers come to your rescue here.
One sheet won’t do the trick. In hotel rooms, if you’ve noticed closely, there are two fitted sheets that are tucked in tightly whereas one flat sheet is placed over it for a feathery feel. Use one fitted sheet vertically and another one horizontally to get the right bounce.
3. Create Layers With a Comforter & Duvet
Layers and more layers are what you need for that plush feel. Add a comforter and duvet to create bedding bliss. Keep in mind the 300-thread-count rule for a soft and smooth finish. Adding these makes you want to sink in, doesn’t it?
4. Maximize on Cushions & Pillows
Don’t you love sinking into a bed with cushions? The soft, light, cozy feel is all you need for a good night’s sleep. But there is a catch here! Add two to four goose feather pillows along with two fiber fill pillows. You’ll want extra pillows – keep a minimum of three pillows so that you get to choose what you’re comfortable sleeping on.
5. Fluff Your Pillows
Old, used pillows tend to look flat and sad. So, fluff your pillows regularly and revive them. This is a small but crucial step in making the bed feel welcoming!
