How to Recreate a Five-Star Hotel Room at Home

There’s no place more inviting than a well-designed, comfort filled, hotel room. Welcomed with elegant decor, crisp fresh sheets, and heavenly pillows – a good night’s sleep is always in sight when you’re living in luxury.  

So how can our bedrooms resemble such comforts and be as aesthetically pleasing? Hotel linen experts, Richard Haworth have shared some helpful tips on how to create the perfect hotel-inspired escape, right from your own home. 

Here’s the checklist for luxing up your bedroom and getting a good night’s rest, according to the experts:


A serene night’s sleep in a hotel starts with white, fresh and impossibly fluffy pillows – the kind we find ourselves dreaming about once we return home. To avoid the bedtime blues, the experts recommend sourcing your pillows directly from hotel suppliers to create your very own sleeping sanctuary. 

David Stockton, Head of Ecommerce and Marketing at Richard Haworth, lists the benefits of shopping for pillows through hotel suppliers: “Hotel pillows have been designed for all types of sleepers and with durability in mind, given they are used day in and day out. The only way to truly replicate that ‘hotel feeling’ is to buy directly from the experts. It’s here where you’ll find luxurious goose down feather pillows or plump microfibre pilows, and of course, ranges that are exactly the same as the ones found in hotels.” 

For your room to look and feel like a luxe hotel, pick out a number of pillows for the bed, including large and inviting cushions.

Bed Linen

Crisp corners and perfectly tucked duvets are a welcomed treat at luxury hotels and when it comes to bed linen, they only use the best. According to the pros, there’s a reason why we can’t get enough of them. 

David says: “Luxury hotels tend to opt for high quality, breathable linens, ensuring ultimate comfort for their guests. Our Como Sateen range is a popular choice for high-end hotels, due to its smooth and silky finish and it doesn’t come at an extravagant price point. 

“Another consideration for a majority of hotels when purchasing linen products is durability and if they can be laundered to the spec we’re all used to when we stay. Many leading UK hotels opt for our Prima or Kensington ranges for this reason. We recommend the cotton rich covers for homeowners too, simply because they are an easy care range that doesn’t break the bank.”


Bedroom armchairs are by far one of the easiest ways to inject some luxury into your space. Creating a multifunctional area, dedicated to curling up with your favourite book or binge watching your favourite TV shows, leaves bedrooms feeling more like a hotel getaway, rather than just the place you sleep. 

Accent armchairs are a popular choice for bedrooms, leaving it feeling effortlessly chic and modern for when you breakaway from the day. If you have the room, opt for two armchairs with a table setting to create that 5-star feel.

Luxe Lighting

Lighting is essential for bringing a hotel ambience to your home according to the experts. Lighting that illuminates certain areas of the room, rather than the full space is how to achieve an ultra-modern look too. Side cabinets, tables and art pieces are areas that are often illuminated in hotels, so why not try this for your bedroom? 

Many hotels also now stock sunset alarm clocks and sunset lamps – a trend that continues to take over on platforms such as TikTok, where you can produce the calming effects of a sunset, straight from your bedroom. The experts recommend introducing this feature to luxe up your room and get a good night’s rest. 

Sleep Expert Dr Lindsay Browning says: “Light provides a natural alarm clock and it’s so important to get increasing light exposure to help you feel more awake and alert, particularly in the mornings. Artificial light can also aid productivity, especially bright daylight lamps – helping you to feel more productive. Many people use sunset lamps to directly tackle Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) too, but it should be noted that there are certain groups that can’t use these lamps due to specific conditions.”

Smart Speakers

When embracing the hotel lifestyle, you might also consider embracing some of the technology they have available. Whether it’s investing in a new entertainment system, or smart tech such as smart blinds, curtains or speakers – technology can play a key role in creating your hotel-inspired oasis. 

Smart speakers are a great way to shut off and get optimal sleep too. One of the latest sleep trends taking over TikTok is listening to the frequencies of nature, such as green noise. 

According to Dr Lindsay, “Using sound as a background noise has its benefits – especially when used to mask external noises such as traffic, dogs barking, and other distractions. Green noise is a combination of natural sounds that focuses on a middle frequency, and although we ultimately sleep best in the quiet and in the dark, green noise is a popular aid to help you fall asleep.”
