7 Tricks Hotels Use That Can Make Your Home Look and Work Better

Looking to breathe some life into your house? Maybe all you need is a vacation. A hotel stay is great for a lot of reasons - as a romantic getaway, an opportunity to see the world or explore new places, a break from work or kids - but taking a good look at your surroundings can also give you great ideas for refreshing your space when you get back home.

"Whether you actually travel the world by getting on those planes, trains and automobiles or mainly explore from your sofa with an iPad in hand, youll know that hotel designers are full of clever ideas on how to make bedrooms comfortable, visually interesting and small space smart," said Apartment Therapy.

For the most part, hotel rooms are small spaces that have to pack a lot of function and >

Originally designed under the Tommie brand, the rooms were designed as "micro scale." Niki Leondakis, the chief executive of Commune Hotels and Resorts, told the New York Times that, building hotels in "urban markets where real estate is at a premium and hotel rooms are notoriously small" requires "an approach to design that maximizes every square foot" - an idea that can translate to home.

Make it interesting

Small doesnt have to be boring. Look how this Great Gatsby-themed hotel room uses pattern and textured panels to create interest.

Luxury linens

You know how hotel room sheets are always so soft? They dont scrimp on thread count. Or the number of sheets they use. "To design your own hotel bed, "start with very clean, white, high thread count sheets," Sybil Pool, a spokesperson for Park Hyatt, told Huffington Post. "Three-hundred thread count seems to be the general rule - thats the standard at Park Hyatt Sydney, and Arizonas award-winning Miraval Resort uses 300 thread count as well. The Westin Heavenly Bed, likewise, gets its oomph from 300 thread count Egyptian cotton, along with a special twist: There are three sheets, says Hoover. That way, youre always touching a sheet. Its a really plush bed."

Huffington Post has a few more tips to make the bed at home and feel like youre in a plush resort.

A great mattress = a great nights sleep

Hotels buy great mattresses. So much so that many have become available to the general public over the years. Theres the aforementioned Westin Heavenly Bed, or you can grab a Four Seasons Bed, the luxe bed youll sleep in if you stay at the W Hotel, and a few more you can see here.

If cost is an issue, think about it this way: a good nights sleep can affect more than just your coffee consumption in the morning. It may be that buying a great mattress ends up being a small price to pay for better health, clarity, and an improved mood all day long.

Accentuate the positive

This tiny, budget room in Copenhagen puts the view front and center. And even though the space is limited REALLY limited, they still found room for a desk and chair, as well as another accent chair. The wall-mounted nightstand is a great way to include a little convenience without a lot of space and the colorful drapes bring the eye out toward the city view.

Coordination is key

You may not have such a fantastic view to emphasize, but you can create a dazzling view inside by coordinating your dcor like hotel rooms do. See how the patterns complement each other, multiple textures create a layered look, and the orange accents pop off of the neutral background?

Concentrate on lighting

Good lighting can make or break a space, and this is something that good hotels do particularly well. The trick: layer it in with overhead, ambient, and task lighting, making sure to illuminate key spaces, like in this Las Vegas room.
