Bedroom design ideas – 5 steps to hotel style

Give your bedroom the feeling of an elegant boutique hotel in 5 simple steps

1) Go for the biggest bed you can

With a king-size or super-king bed, the whole family can pile in for lazy Sunday mornings. And if you like lounging in bed with the papers, make it easier on your neck with a padded headboard.

2) Build a walk-in wardrobe behind your bed

Build a false wall 100cm into the room – it should be just wider than your bed. Use The Holding Company‘s Elfa system to hang your clothes.

3) Turn your accessories into wall art

Display your jewellery, perfume or prettiest shoes in wall-mounted boxes lit by spotlights (available from IKEA).

4) Give your bed the hotel treatment

Dress up plain bedlinen with a sumptuous throw and sexy cushions.

5) Create a make-up station

A narrow console table, chair and mirror gives you somewhere to get ready in the morning, so you won’t need to join the queue for the bathroom.

Wallpaper your false wall with a chic design – no-one will guess your clothes and clutter are hidden behind it.

The wallpaper is from John Lewis and the bed is from Feather & Black. Find matching side tables and Habitat and the ottoman and wall boxes from The Dormy House. Visit The White Company for luxurious hotel chic bedlinen.
