No single item makes the hotel experience more than the bed. To achieve those ethereal layers of pillowy goodness (without going broke), JBI suggests skipping the pillow-top mattress and buying a featherbed instead. "A featherbed is much more economical and serves just as well for making you feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud," JBI designers say. The same goes for super-high thread count sheets. "The maximum you need is 300 to 400 [thread count]," though going higher is totally up to you. Layer two flat sheets over the mattress, sealing them with hospital corners the way most hotels do, add a few down pillows, which JBI says are best for adjusting to heat and body temperature and conform well to body curves, and finish it off with a soft and fluffy duvet.
If the 1920s-inspired lobby at the WestHouse hotel in New York City is not enough to have you packing your bags for a permanent stay, the entry to each guest room will. That is where designers from Jeffery Beers International (JBI) installed a small shelf to place keys and small items, and a small crystal chandelier similar to the grand chandeliers found downstairs. But while this hotel might have two shots at making a first impression, your home probably does not, so you are going to want to make that entryway count.
There is actually a reason for that mirror many designers like to hang right above the writing desk: "Strategically placed mirrors can make a small space look more expansive," JBI says. It is the easiest spot to drop your room key or laptop, but that writing desk was actually used for, well, writing years ago. Why not pick up some stationery and tell your friends and family what a wonderful trip you had. (Aside from what they have already seen on Instagram, of course.)
"Keeping organized and maximizing storage is important for maintaining a clean look in small spaces," JBI adds. Hotels have housekeeping to take care of that. For you, we have two words: Cleaning service. The design team at The William hotel -- a colorful extended-stay residence in New York City -- used space-saving floating drawers in lieu of bulkier bedside tables; JBI recommends finding furniture pieces that can serve multiple purposes, such as a desk that doubles as a dining room table.
