The entry way of a hotel is always luxe. Think of the last hotel that you walked into. What did you first see? Of course, you were surrounded by an amazing lobby that was filled with orchids (or some other exotic flower arrangement), glitzy mirrors, well-arranged seating areas, dim lighting, and fabulous artwork. How can you create all this in the small entryway of your own home? It’s actually pretty simple. You just need to guide your visitors eyes to a certain niche or centerpiece that will welcome them into your home and speak to the rest of the homes style. It’s best to start with a small entryway table. Whether it be marble, wood or shiny lacquer, the entryway table can be your starting point. If you have room, a large round table makes a dramatic statement when floated in the middle of an entry. Then add to this table: a pretty lamp, a bowl to contain a few collected knick knacks, some books or other things that appeal to your tastes, and of course, a pretty flower arrangement (no fake flowers aloud). If the table is against the wall, then place a statement mirror or piece of art above the table (a starburst mirror works well here). You are almost done! Now, if there is room, add a plump chair that guests can sit in when taking on and off their shoes. The entryway is the first and last thing that guests see. Make it one that leaves a lavish impact. Architectural elements can add to the luxurious factor of your home.
Curtains are always well-designed in a luxury hotel. Curtains, draperies and blinds are something a lot of us homeowners overlook. We slap on some wooden blinds for privacy and wipe our hands of the nasty job of window coverings (or we resort to buying some cheap pre-made curtains at a local chain store). There is a good reason for this trend— 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. Enjoy your luxe curtains, they will open the window to the home of your dreams.
Space is always well-organized in hotels. Spaces— no matter how big or small— are always well-organized in a hotel. There are book cases, tables and shelves that look as though an interior designer outfitted them with the perfect knick knacks, and that’s because there was a designer who organized them. You may not have a designer to arrange the space in your home, but you can certainly take a cue from them. Skim through design magazines and look at all the wonderful nooks and crannies that they portray. You will notice that when a room is well-designed, everything has a home and a purpose. There is no clutter in a hotel or well-organized room. Use baskets and decorative bowls to hide the clutter. Shelves are used as methods to display collections. Side tables hold pretty vases and lamps. Chairs are set up in groupings to allow for conversation. Try adding some of these 15 Fresh Furniture Trends to your room for added luxury! Overall, each and every room is organized into areas with a purpose and use. There are gaming tables for cards, and quaint chairs set beside each other for private tete-a-tete’s.

Recreation is key in a luxury hotel. It may not be affordable to add a luxury indoor swimming pool and sauna room, but we can still try to mimic the recreational style of a luxury hotel. All hotels obviously have a pool, sauna, games room and gym. If budget is not a concern, then consider adding an in-home sauna, gaming room or lap pool. This would be the ultimate way to unwind at the end of a hard day! If this is not possible, then consider simply creating a home gym. It can be as simple as a treadmill that is well-positioned in front of a TV. Add a small bar fridge with water and a rack for towels — voila, you have your own hotel-style work out room. You could also create a spa space where you can unwind or do yoga stretches. Choose a dark corner of your home where it is quiet. Add candles, a cozy floor pillow, and a soft mat or rug for stretching or meditating. Play some zen music and escape life’s hectic pace — you will surely feel like you have escaped into a spa hotel.
