The special treatment people get in the hotel is often seen as something rare and exclusive. That gives it the extra charm. However, even this isn’t impossible to replicate in your own home. There are some ideas and improvements that will make your home into a much more pleasant living environment. They can make the place feel like a 5-star hotel. Some of the investments required to make this possible may seem steep but living in a 5-star hotel would exceed this cost.
1. Plush and soft
The first thing you need is to find a way to make your home feel as cozy as possible. For starters, you need the most iconic hotel item ever – a plush robe. On top of this, what you also need are some soft slippers and a lot of cushions everywhere. To further enhance the tactile sense within the home, you should also look for some rugs. Remember that the impression of being in a hotel comes from all five senses. It’s not just what you see around you but also what you feel on your skin and the smell of new, clean and luxurious all around. This way, you can handle the tactile aspect of a hotel like a boss.
2. Rework your bathroom
The next area that deserves your immediate attention is your bathroom. You should start by thoroughly reworking the area to make it more hotel-like. This is possible even with a small bathroom. Start by getting yourself some interesting bathroom products. A bath bomb can make all the difference in the world. It’s not just about the way your bathroom looks but also about the way you use it. This greatly depends on the inventory. Also, try to rework the lighting so that you have the option of diming the place at your behest. Lastly, think about some scented candles. Having them is not enough, you need to use them.
3. Transform your balcony
If your house/apartment has a balcony, this is the perfect way to make your home feel like a luxury resort. Being outdoor in a tropical climate is something that you can’t emulate as easily. However, you can easily transform your balcony thematically. In other words, not only can you make your home feel and look like a 5-star hotel. You even get to choose the location of this exotic hotel of yours. To do this, make sure to use the theme of the region that you pick. Sometimes, you can even add planters and vines resembling those in the respective region (if only during the season).
4. Work on your exterior
If you have a backyard, you can extend the idea from the previous section. The first thing your property needs is a pool or an outdoor hot tub. To check how much this would cost you and whether your property fulfils all the criteria, you should contact expert swimming pool builders and ask for a quote. Other than this, you can consider building a nice deck and even think about covering it with a pergola. All of this will transform your property into a luxurious resort and make the resale value of the place skyrocket.
One more iconic aspect of designing a home in a hotel-like manner is looking for some chocolate with mint filling to leave on your bed. According to Admiral McRaven, to change the world, you need to make your bed as soon as you get up in the morning. Once you’re done, you can just place chocolate on a pillow. While it may not seem like much, it will wait for you there until you return. It will also help you feel like you’re in a traditional hotel.
In the end, designing your home is an important project that determines more than the appeal of your home. It determines the way it feels, most importantly, it affects your everyday routine. To get the most out of it, you need to focus on what matters. Try to see how a particular innovation will change the way you see and experience your home. This is the only way for the change to make a difference. For it to mean something.
