hotel roomWhen you check into swanky hotels, do you ever take a look around the room and wish your bedroom at home were just as comfortable & stylish? Because that's pretty much how I feel every time I open the door to my hotel room and see plush, crisp linens, clean lines -- and furniture tops with zero clutter in sight.

There's just something about being in a room that's pleasing to the eye that is so relaxing and stress relieving, and most of the time it's so tough to check out of the hotel and head back home where things aren't as luxurious.

But even though having your bedroom perfectly resemble a fancy hotel isn't always possible (considering you have to sleep in there every single night), there are a few things you can do to make your room look and feel a bit more like a four (or possibly even five) star hotel suite.

Take a look at the photos below to see 5 tips on how to transform your bedroom into a place you'll be eager to check into every night.

  • Basic White Linens

    Outfitting your bed with a white duvet & sheets is probably the easiest way to capture a hotel vibe. Your bed will look clean and inviting if you stick to the basics.

  • Fresh Flowers

    Keep a vase with fresh cut flowers on your nightstand to pretty up the room and create a more romantic atmosphere.

  • Fluffy Pillows

    Make sure to pick up a few extra pillows to display when you make the bed. Extra pillows immediately upgrade your bedroom from a standard room in the house to what looks like a chic hotel.

  • Large Armoire

    Instead of having your TV sit on top of your dresser, invest in a large armoire to conceal it. It will make the room look more grand and serene.

  • Fancy Bed Frame

    If you really want to kick things up a notch in your bedroom, get yourself a canopy bed frame -- like those that are seen in upscale hotels.
