We have all begun our end of the year detoxing to start afresh this new year. Why not start with your own home? Minimalism has always been trending and popularly so, right now! What better way than to follow the popular cozy hotel vibe.
A hotel room has a unique aura about it. It oozes comfort and coziness from every nook and cranny. The hint of fragrance in the air, the perfect temperature setting on your AC, the silky soft sheets are not just for the elite.
Why not steal the principles from the experts? Here are some tried and tested Treebo tips and top bedroom makeover ideas with photographic testaments to transform your room into a Luxurious Hotel Room.
These top bedroom makeover ideas will make your room look like a million bucks!
Invest in a good mattress:
Remember how, when you walk into a hotel room, the first thing you do is either jump-test the mattress or crash on it? You know the mattress is important right? Don’t hesitate to invest in a good one.
Hotel Secret: Hotels usually have a foam or a spring mattress, not a coir one!
Comfort-er is key:
Pick out quality cotton sheets in white or neutral tones for your bedroom to give it the hotel-like feel. You can also easily learn the age-old tuck-and-fold method to keep your sheets in place.
Hotel Secret: Hotels usually layer their mattress with many types of sheets – a mattress cover, fitted sheet, bed sheet, a comforter and duvet cover.

Decorate with accents:
Switch up the cushion covers to add drama and personality. A throw blanket is a popular option in the west. Lay a woolen one with tassels on your finished product to add that extra interest. You can also add a soft and fuzzy rug on the floor to give your naked feet sweet good-morning kisses.
Hotel Secret: Hotels add a pop of colour to their plain white ensemble with smaller cushions or decorative pillows.
A couple of scented candles, some rose petals in a bowl of water, a playlist of romantic songs flowing from your speaker – Yum right? All of these can comfortably rest on your bedside table in addition to your reading glasses, books, lamps, TV and AC remotes, medicines, mobile phone etc. tucked away in the drawes.
Hotel Secret: Hotels always have couple of bedside tables with drawers to help you store things and add structure to the lonely bed.
Play with the lighting:
Did you ever notice this? There are many light sources in a hotel room. Say on the table, on the bedside, above the bed, near the bathroom door, near the mirror, on the floor, lights inside and outside the bathroom, on the corridors if not many more? Try this for your space!
Hotel Secret: We have different lighting at different heights to set the ambiance of the room
Taste of senses:
Temperature and fragrance are two important elements that make a hotel room stand out from regular bedrooms. Installing an AC will not only set the temperature just right but will also transport you into your own little sanctuary.
Hotel Secret: We pre-install a room freshener in the air conditioner and turn it on before you enter.
Hang two kinds of curtains – one to let the light in, the other to block the light out. They say, your sleep-wake cycle should be in rhythm with the rising and waning of the sun.
What better way to welcome natural light than to hang delicate and flowy white curtains during the day and bid the day farewell with dark and dusky sheets during night time.
Hotel Secret: One tip is to hang your curtains higher and wider than your regular windows to fake a wider area and to cover up unsightly wall space.

Create a statement wall:
Now this, you can play with, to your liking. Better still, showcase your exquisite taste in art and design while adding an explosion of colour on your walls.
Focus on the wall behind your bed so as to minimise distractions while sleeping and add great visual interest as your bed is the focal point of your bedroom.
Hide the clutter:
Like they say – out of sight, out of mind! You need to have ample storage in your bedroom to keep all your clothes, extra sheets, pillows and all other things. Whatever is hanging out is supposed to look good.
A great tip is to buy a bed with storage inside – this will keep all your bed-related things in one place. A clean-looking wooden wardrobe and a dressing table will neatly camouflage the mess that is lying inside.
Install a headboard:
A headboard makes your bed look larger and your room more majestic. It will add some dimension to your bed and help it furthermore become the focal point in your bedroom.
Hotel Secret: Hotels have an upholstered headboard so that even when you are not sleeping and sitting down, you still have great back support.
Get a tea/coffee maker:
Experts suggest that you should always keep your alarm clock at walking distance from your bed otherwise it will just act as a snoozing machine. We have a tip for you!
In a lonely and far corner in your room, add a small table with a tea/coffee kettle and some TLC inducing tea and coffee bags. Walk up to the table as you hear your alarm blazing and make yourself a fresh cuppa first thing in the morning.
This, we assure you, will surely drive away your morning blues.
Tuck away a mini fridge:
If you are going the extra mile anyway, why not get a mini fridge too! A little bit of indulgence never hurt nobody!
Keep your water bottles, cosmetics and some alcohol (just in case :p) stored in this safe spot. Mini fridges are actually pretty inexpensive and why not? You definitely deserve the royal treatment!
Keep a desk and a chair:
Do you know why hotel rooms mostly have a desk and a chair separate from the bed area? Because they know that work cannot be done lying down in bed and it shouldn’t be!
You should always keep your work and technology away from your bed. The place where you sleep should only comprise of cuddly hugs and sweet slumbers.
Add extra seating:
This will definitely take your bedroom to the next level. Where will you seat your close friends and family when they come over for a visit? Not formally in the living room! No!
Get a couple of interesting chairs and a small coffee table and keep them by the window. A great conversation spot and an area to relax, which is not your bed.
There are so many things you can do to amp up the coziness of your bathrooms. Display toiletries in pretty containers, roll some fresh towels and tuck them in a basket, get a nice rug for under your feet, get a bathroom organiser caddy to hide away all the clutter, get a shower curtain, plant some greenary in pretty containers and the list can go on and on.
