How to Make Your Home Feel Like a 5-Star Hotel: Bedroom
Make Your Bed in the Morning
Whenever you stay in a hotel, it’s always great to walk in and see a nicely made bed at the end of the day. While you likely don’t have room service to make it for you at home, it’s worth the extra effort to make your bed in the morning!
Want an easy way to make your home feel like a 5-start hotel vactation? Sleep in as long as you can! Have a slow lazy morning. Enjoy coffee and a good book in bed before starting your day.
Have Breakfast in Bed
Having breakfast in bed when staying at a hotel is one of my favorite indulgences! If you’re quarantined at home with a partner or roommate, try taking turns bringing each other breakfast in bed.
Don’t have a tray? This is a great, cheap option. If you’re worried about crumbs or getting sheets dirty, put a towel down first.

Get Some New Fluffy Towels
One of the things I love about staying in nice hotels is they usually have big fluffy bath towels. Now’s a great time to finally replace your old ratty towels and get some new ones!
Have a Spa Day
Give yourself some #SelfCare and have a spa day! Relax, give yourself a facial, put on a face mask, paint your nails, etc!
Take a Fancy Bubble Bath
After your Spa Day, pour yourself a glass of wine (or champagne if you’re feeling real fancy) and take a nice bubble bath. But not just any bubble bath… go all out! I’m talking candles, bath salts, bath bomb, flower petals, all the things!
