How to Style Your Home Like a 5-Star Hotel

Published on August 31, 2022

When it comes to home décor, many people think that they have to break the bank to achieve a luxurious look. But this is simply not true! In fact, by following a few simple tips, you can easily style your home like a 5-star hotel.

From decluttering your space to adding some statement pieces to your decor to creating layers of texture and color, you can create an air of spaciousness and elegance and give your home a sense of richness and luxury.

Paying attention to the little details, like polished and well-maintained furniture and high-quality linens on your bed and sofa, can help you have a beautifully styled home that rivals any 5-star hotel.

When you walk into your home, you should feel like you’re walking into a 5-star hotel — one that feels cozy and comfortable yet homey. 

Here are some tips on how to make your home look and feel luxurious:

1. Declutter

Take time to organize your stuff, keeping your collections down to a few favorites. Remove everything that you no longer use, so you can minimize the mess and create a more spacious feel.

Make sure the surfaces are clean and keep your rooms as minimalist as possible. Remember, less is more! 

You can use savvy storage and containers that can also double as decor and furniture.

2. Use High-Quality Materials

You’ll want to use the best materials that you can afford to create a luxurious look. For example, use marble or granite countertops in the kitchen, high-end wood or tile flooring, and top-of-the-line appliances.

Don’t forget the bed, which is the focal point of a luxurious hotel room. Use high-quality linens and pillows. It’s best to stick to white crisp cotton beddings and avoid the floral, brightly printed sheets.

While you don’t have to buy from the top-of-the-market brand, white beddings are classic and timeless.

3. Create Well-Defined Spaces

A key element of luxury is symmetry and simplicity. Make sure each room has a specific purpose and is decorated in a simple, elegant way. This will give your home a polished look that screams sophistication.

One way to do this is to buy matching sets for some of your essentials. For instance, you can use kitchen tools and containers that match the color of each other, like a mix of white and dark brown pieces.

You can also add area rugs to help define different spaces, as well as make statements. Likewise, area rugs can hide blemishes and stubborn stains on your floor.

4. Add Touches of Luxury Everywhere

Even if not every room is decked out in luxury, adding small touches here and there will help create the overall effect you’re going for. 

Try installing expensive-looking light fixtures, putting up high-end wallpaper, or using lavish curtains and drapes throughout the house. Stylish lamps, vases of fresh flowers, and framed artworks are also excellent finishing touches.

5. Add a Scent

A home that feels like a 5-star hotel would not be complete without an accent of scent. You can use scented candles or essential oils, which will help set the ambiance of your rooms. Choose a pleasant aroma that can remind you of a hotel spa–relaxing and soothing to your senses.

6. Get an Adjustable Mattress

Making sure you have the best adjustable mattress is a great way to add a touch of comfort to your bedroom and take your sleeping experience to the next level. What level of firmness do you like? Because you can adjust it as you please and even receive customized support for different body parts and sleeping positions.

Wrapping Up

Again, you don’t have to splurge on decor to make your home look like a 5-star hotel. You can use stylish and luxurious-looking pieces at an affordable price if you know where to look! Take time to shop around, examine their quality, and plan how you’ll style your rooms. Remember to keep it minimalist and simple, which is the key to an elegantly designed home.
