Enjoy a luxury hotel bed at home every single night
With their minibars and on-tap cleaning, hotels really can feel like a home away from home, and let’s be honest, hotel sleep is guaranteed to be some of the best you’ve ever had.
Unlike your hard-springed mattress and worn duvet, hotel beds just seem to have that special something that, like a cloud through blissful blue skies, sends you off into a sleep you can truly sink into.
The trouble is that, no matter how hard you try, you can never work out how to get a hotel bed at home. Luckily, you don’t need to pay big bucks to sleep as well as you do when you’re away and to prove it.
We’re going to deep dive into the hotel bed secrets that can slot nicely into your very own bedroom.
Why is hotel bedding so comfortable?
Hotel experts are uniquely poised and incentivised to study comfort, meaning that they’re on the cutting edge of understanding good sleep and the best items necessary to facilitate that.
Hotel beds are also designed to withstand much heavier use than our at-home options, meaning that they and their sleep accessories ensure new-bed comfort every single night. A benefit that’s enhanced with the addition of mattress toppers, and freshly changed, high-quality sheets every day.
What duvet covers do hotels use?
Hotel duvet covers and the quality quilts within them are perhaps the main reason for the cloud-like feel of hotel beds, providing perfectly puffed comfort that ensures our bodies can breathe throughout the night.
Specifically on the cover front, cotton is best and should measure around 2 inches wider than the duvet itself, which should always have a feather base.
What type of sheets do hotels use?
Crisp bed sheets are another significant benefit of hotel sleep. Most notably, high-quality hotels will ditch the fitted sheet in place of two well-tucked cotton top sheets, perfect for easy-clean breathability and typically landing around the 300 thread count mark.
It’s this slightly elevated count mark that creates the soft-touch durability that none of us can resist, and that’s really where the cloud-like feeling of hotel sleep stems from.
What pillows are used in 5-star hotels?
Given the sheer amount of use they experience, hotel pillows need to be the best in the bunch. Forget hard compacted pillows like the ones you’ve got at home – comfort here is all about the best possible models for comfort that lasts.
In most cases, this means firm pillows that typically incorporate either goose down or a down alternative.
Remember, also, that hotel professionals are sleep experts, and they’re well aware of the fact that good sleep generally means using two pillows for side sleepers or one pillow for stomach sleepers.
As such, there’s always plenty of variation on offer to ensure the utmost comfort for every guest, typically including firm and soft options to cater for the widest possible range of personal preferences.
Why do hotels use white bedding?
You may have also noticed that most hotels use white bedding. This adds to the overall cloud-like feel of hotel beds and, let’s be honest, we’ve all thought about doing the same to trick our minds into replicating that comfort.
Well, you could well benefit from doing so, because white hotel bedding definitely isn’t an accident. There are a range of reasons for this colour palette, including easier cleaning, a crisper finish, and the general sensation of slipping into a cloudy cocoon every single night.
