The folks from Anna's Linens stopped by Studio10 to share how you can create the feeling of a Five-Star hotel bed, in your own home.
Below are some tips on how to make this happen:
*Upgrade Your Existing Mattress with a Topper
•Placed atop a mattress, a mattress topper is a soft, padded element that provides extra cushion for comfort and support (two key ingredients of a luxury hotel bed).
•There are several different types of mattress toppers to suit various budgets and levels of support: Quilted Mattress Pads, Pillow Top Mattress Pads or Featherbeds.
•Treat the topper as part of your mattress. Just as you flip it every so often, rotate the topper, too.
*Opt for Egyptian Cotton
•Egyptian cotton is known as the one of the finest grades of cotton in the world.
•It’s a sign of quality, strength and most importantly for a luxury bed, softness.
•400 or 500 thread count will have you sleeping in the lap of luxury for years to come.
*Don’t Skimp on the Toppings
•You’ve got the skeleton of a super comfy bed, so the exterior elements should look the part.
•Choose a soft, yet voluminous comforter.
•Fills such as down, down alternative and cotton are great depending on your budget.
•If opting for a duvet, make sure it is machine washable.
•Keep the comforter or duvet color light and elegant – ivory, cream, white, gold.
*Plush Pillows are Must
•Whether for your head or just décor, pillows should be large, soft and luxurious in feel
•Keep your needs in mind (firm, soft, etc.), but opt for those that are hypoallergenic and have a high thread count cover.
•Down and down alternative fills are used often in hotel beds.
•Customize your sleep experience with a memory foam pillow.
•An Egyptian cotton pillow cover will enhance the look and feel (and match your sheets).
