We spend around one-third of our lives sleeping and attempting to do so. If we also factor in the time spent relaxing in bed, reading a book, or watching TV, then that’s a good chunk of our lives spent in the bedroom.
With this in mind, it makes sense that bedroom design should be high up on the priority list when it comes to interiors and renovation.
Creating a luxurious bedroom is all about designing a space that you look forward to retreating to in an evening, and it’s far more achievable than you may think.
Luxurious bedroom design doesn’t have to break the bank. In fact, it’s easily done when you learn the key style tips and tricks, and the basics of designing a glamorous room with just a few tweaks here and there.
Here are some tips for creating your own hotel-style luxurious bedroom.
1. Opt for a neutral palette
Choosing a neutral colour palette with subtle tones that work well together is the key to creating a classy and sophisticated bedroom.
Stick to a warm-toned neutral hue for the walls, and enhance the look by incorporating beautiful scenery artwork to dial in on the cosy vibes.
Neutral colours extend beyond the paint you choose to adorn your walls with and work right down to introducing natural materials and raw textures. Invest in wooden floors, accessorise with marble furniture and introduce earthy tones throughout the bedroom.
2. Style with mirrors
No matter if you’re working with a large or small bedroom, the addition of mirrors works to enhance the feelings of luxury and opulence in any space.
It’s as simple as placing a large mirror at either side of the headboard to open up the space and add a splash of expensive-looking style. Maybe even consider investing in mirrored wardrobes to add further depth and elegance, and look into unique show-stopping mirror designs to make a glamorous statement.
3. Invest in statement lighting
One of the things that all luxury hotels have in common is their choice of stylish lighting fixtures.
Statement table lamps or ceiling fixtures make a huge impact and help to hone in on the luxurious, ultra-glamorous style. Look out for unique shapes, metallic finishes and added decorative features such as jewels or crystals for the ultimate finishing touch.
If you’re designing a bright and airy space, you may want to opt for brighter lighting and keep the same theme running throughout your ceiling and table lamp fixtures. On the contrary, if you’re looking to set the mood for a cosy, relaxing sanctuary – opt for softer, warmer lighting.
4. Accessorise with a soft throw blanket
No matter how extravagant your decor is, the bed should always be the focal point of any bedroom and how you dress it matters. It goes without saying that luxury bed linen is a staple, but it doesn’t end there.
To really emulate the look and feel of a luxury boutique hotel, it’s all about creating the illusion of a show-stopping cosy bed to sink into at the end of the night – and you can easily achieve this by adding layers.
If you’re often looking at bedroom design inspiration, you’ll notice that beds are almost always adorned with a luxury throw blanket, and there’s a reason for this. This simple touch looks expensive, inviting and makes a statement. Plus, it’s an affordable way to keep you warm and cosy when the temperature drops.
5. Add statement furniture pieces
In just about any luxurious hotel room you step into, you’ll notice that they utilise statement furniture to their advantage. There are usually more places to rest up than just the bed, and you’ll typically find a comfortable chair situated in the corner.
It’s a smart styling trick used to make the room feel more grand and inviting, and all it takes is a snazzy looking chair. This can also extend to statement bedside tables or a desk should you need a place to work.
