Everyone wants a bit of luxury in their life, but not everyone can afford it. The great news is that there are multiple ways to get that opulent, A-lister vibe right in your home, saving you loads of money and time.
Here are 5 ways to make your home feel like a 5-star resort:
Create Your Own Sensual Spa
Every high-end resort has a spa, so your home simply has to have its own version to feel high-grade and get you winding down just like the celebrities do. Try these changes to your bathroom to inspire supreme spa vibes:
- Keep it extra clean
- Create the perfect spa scent with an electric aroma diffuser and your favourite essential oils
- Treat yourself to experiential products like bath bombs
- Create a bar featuring indulgent scrubs, exfoliating sponges, creams, and elixirs
- Invest in a waterfall/rainforest shower head
- Treat yourself to a super-soft dressing gown and cozy slippers
You wouldn’t expect piles of papers, dusty ornaments or dead plants in a 5-star resort, so why are you putting up with such clutter at home? The reality is probably that you’re super busy, so decluttering just isn’t a priority.
We feel you, but the harsh truth is, it absolutely should be a priority. Clutter causes issues with your focus, your mood, your sleep – it can even make you more prone to accidents in the home.
A good decluttering session will not only make your home feel more fresh, open, and clean (just like a 5-star resort), but it will boost your quality of life too!
Create Spots for Just Being
With so many life stresses – including COVID-19, which is said to have caused 12% of people to experience stress – we all need encouragement to take a second, even on vacation. Hotels encourage us to relax by providing various spots for just being.
In your home, this could be a cosy corner with a blanket and hot chocolate, or a lounge chair with a pillow and a great view. Have fun with it.
The Best Bed Ever for the Best Night’s Sleep
Around 70% of adults say they do not get enough sleep at least one night a month, and 11% struggle every night.
If there is one time that most of us do get a great night’s sleep, it is on holiday. Try making these 5-star adjustments to your bedroom at home for improved sleep:
- A memory foam mattress topper
- The best quality sheets you can afford
- Great pillows
- Air Con or a good quality fan
- Thick curtains or an eye mask
- Lavender pillow spritz
Get Some Integrated Home Technology
The classiest resorts always have the latest technology on hand to ensure their guests have premium convenience at their fingertips. The good news is that money is constantly being pumped into the $135 billion smart home industry so that everybody can get in on the action.
From doorbell security and apps that operate your bath to voice command alarms and music controls, you can have all the sci-fi technology goodness of a 5-star resort right at home. Hey Alexa, play “Flight Of The Conchords – Robots.”
“When you get into a hotel room, you lock the door, and you know there is a secrecy, there is a luxury, there is a fantasy. There is comfort. There is reassurance.” – Diane Von Furstenberg
With the tips above and a little bit of time, effort, and ingenuity, you can have those 5-star resort vibes in your home. The first step? Recognising that you deserve to feel special and surrounded by great things all year round, not just on vacation.
