6 Affordable Ways To Make Your Apartment Feel Like A 5-Star Hotel


1.Dress the Bathroom to Match


Inside your apartment for rent, if you’re lucky enough to have a bath attached to your bedroom, you should treat it like the posh-sounding en suite that it is. Mentally and visually connecting the spaces with complementary decor makes the whole master suite feel more spa-like. If space allows, you might even consider arranging the bed to face the bathroom doorway for a more cohesive connection between these two separate rooms. Then use these tips to dress the bath up like a boutique resort.

2. Curtains Are Always Well-Designed in a Luxury Hotel


Custom draperies are expensive and hard to find. Unless you are a seamstress, then making gorgeous pinch-pleated drapery panels is not easy. Along with the bedroom, window coverings are another place where you should put your money where your mouth is. It is obvious when draperies are done on a budget, and it can ruin the look of your luxury home.

If you don’t know how to sew, then consider hiring someone who is willing to work within your budget. It’s always best to buy the fabric on your own and then have a seamstress work with that, as they tend to charge an overhead on their fabrics.

Pick fabrics that suit your tastes and the rest of your decor. To maintain the luxury look, think silks, damasks, and linen for your fabric choices. Don’t forget to add black-out curtains in all the bedrooms, as every hotel offers them.

3. Monochromatic Tone

A monochromic scheme is often used in hotel rooms to set a quiet, sophisticated tone. To create that at home, pick one primary color and one related coordinating color. For a cocoon-like effect, paint the ceiling the same color as the walls or a 20 percent toned-down version of the wall shade.

4. Climate Control is Imperative in Your Hotel-Style Home
A hotel is never too hot or too cold, rather, the temperature is always just right. Climate control systems are a must-have for the comfort of your home.

Achieving this state of perfect temperature can be as simple as installing a programmable thermostat into your home. There are thermostats that can read your temperature habits and automatically mimic them, thereby giving you a home that is always at the optimal temperature to suit your tastes.

There are also many wireless climate control systems that be adjusted from anywhere with a simple tap of a button on your phone. If budget is a problem, then consider adding a ceiling fan to the master bedroom— at least you will get a cooler, more comfortable sleep.

If budget is not a concern, then consider installing motorized remote control blinds or shades to the sunniest windows. Overall, no matter the budget, a climate controlled room is key to achieving a hotel state of mind in your home.

5. Lavish Lighting 
Lighting in a bedroom is often overlooked. To create the best light, include multiple layers operating on separate dimmer switches. You’ll need bedside reading lamps, a beautiful statement piece—such as an elegant overhead chandelier, some wall sconces and a chair-side lamp or two in the seating area. The layers add dimension and drama so you can adjust the mood.

6. Add Flowers and Greenery in Every Room of Your Home


Scent is one of our most powerful senses, so when entering a hotel lobby, we smell the lush flowers before we even see them. However, it can be daunting and expensive to try and always maintain a home full of fresh-cut floral bouquets.

On a budget, you can still easily attain this green aesthetic by simply adding some house plants. Orchids are elegant, gorgeous and they continue to bloom in cycles. A large palm plant can make a huge impact when placed in an entryway inside a chinoiserie-syle urn.

If your thumb is far from green and the thought of house plants sends you running, then consider adding other natural elements to your home. A vase filled with spindly twigs, or a bowl filled with acorns, river stones or glass, are all wonderful ways to bring a touch of life to your home.(According to Fresh Home & HGTV)
