Boutique Hotel Bedroom Ideas to Create a Luxurious Space

Returning home after a much-needed weekend away, you sit on the edge of your bed and ponder the countless boutique hotel bedroom ideas fluttering around your mind. Staying in a hotel for the past few nights has made you realise just how lacklustre your own bedroom is, and has given you the inspiration you need to do something about it.

Letting your eyes wander around the room, you take in the space and think about all the ways you could add a touch of hotel luxury. From changing the colour scheme to incorporating statement lights and lamps, there are many options to consider that will elevate your bedroom without stripping it of personality.

Discover how to make your space feel more luxurious with unique and relaxing boutique hotel bedroom ideas.

5 hotel-style bedroom ideas to elevate your space

Curating a truly luxurious hotel-style bedroom takes time and careful planning, but it’s worth it to experience that feeling of pure indulgence and relaxation every night.

If you’re not sure where to start, embracing these boutique bedroom ideas will effortlessly make your room look more elegant and beautiful.

1. Opt for a sophisticated neutral colour palette

Choosing the right colour palette is key when it comes to curating hotel-inspired interiors. To evoke a sense of luxury, a certain sophistication is required.

‘Opt for a restrained colour palette’, says Ally Dowsing-Reynolds, interiors expert and co-founder of Dowsing & Reynolds. ‘Three to five colours are recommended, with a base neutral.’

To build your ideal colour palette, start by selecting a neutral base colour. Soft neutral hues like chalk white, taupe, and champagne are all excellent choices for luxury hotel-inspired spaces, and should be incorporated into some of the more permanent features of the room such as the wall coverings, headboards, or wardrobes.

Once you’ve chosen your base colour, pick out two or three additional colours to incorporate into your palette. These colours can be used to inform your choice of accessories, from the shade of your bed linen to the hue of your calming table lamps.

2. Incorporate statement furniture pieces

Unashamed opulence is also a key aspect of luxury hotel bedrooms. Adding a few statement furniture pieces to your room is an ideal way to convey luxury and elegance without going over the top and making the space look garish.

These furniture pieces should provide a focal point that captures your attention and draws you in as soon as you enter the room.

In a luxury hotel-inspired bedroom, the bed should always be a focal point. Opt for the largest bed that the space can handle and aim to position it centrally, so that the rest of the room feels like it’s structured around the bed.

Similarly, go grand with the headboard. A tall headboard in a deep buttoned style is a classic emblem of luxury and elegance, making it the perfect hotel bedroom idea.

The right bedroom lighting can also act as a captivating focal point and provide the ideal opportunity for you to inject some of your personality into the space. ‘To replicate the look of a boutique hotel bedroom, choose statement lighting with a minimalist design and metallic finish’, says Ally. Opt for an eye-catching modern chandelier to heighten the luxurious feel of your room.

Product pick: Adding a bubble chandelier to your luxury hotel-inspired bedroom will provide an elegant focal point that also shows off your quirky side.

3. Create an artfully layered lighting scheme

Layered lighting is essential to creating a luxurious space, so that you have wall, floor, and table lamps in all the places you need them’, says Ally.

From ambient wall lights on either side of the bed to bright lamps on the dressing table for perfect make-up application, having a range of lighting sources to suit your every need is a must.

There are three different types of hotel-style lighting you should try to include in your bedroom to make it feel more luxurious:

  • Ambient lighting: This is the general lighting that provides overall illumination in a room. Make sure your ceiling lights cast light over the entire room, brightening up even the darkest corners.
  • Task lighting: This lighting is designed to illuminate tasks, such as reading before bed or applying makeup. Task lighting in the bedroom could include table lamps, wall lights, or even pendant lights depending on which option works best for your space.
  • Accent lighting: This lighting should highlight certain features or areas within your bedroom, drawing attention to key elements of the décor. You might choose to install LED strip lighting under the bedside tables to cast light upwards and draw attention to the bed, for example.

Style tip: ‘Hang an oversized mirror on one of your walls to bounce light around’, Ally suggests. ‘Extra styling points if it’s circular!’

4. Choose high-quality metal finishes

Light switches and sockets are always on show in boutique hotel rooms and are never white plastic’, Ally notes. ‘To complete the luxury look, upgrade yours to a beautiful metallic finish, such as gold, black, or antique brass.’

You should also consider operating your lights from a combination switch by the bed – this will allow you to control all of the different lights in your room without having to move again once you’ve got comfortable.

Product pick: The gold triple combo switch is the ultimate luxury light switch. The gold metal finish connotes sophistication, while the toggle and dimmer switches allow you to control the lighting in your room with ease.

5. Keep accessories simple yet impactful

Finally, make sure to choose your bedroom accessories carefully. Accessories such as rugs, mirrors, and artwork can enhance the luxury feel of your space and allow you to show off your personality, but keep it simple so as not to make the room feel cluttered and messy.

‘Carefully curating the details of your boutique hotel-inspired bedroom is key to achieving an uncluttered look’, Ally adds.

Reminder: Comfort is always the top priority in hotel bedrooms, so don’t skimp on bed linen quality when styling your room. ‘Opt for crisp white linen with ample duvet and plump pillows’, says Ally.
