Staying in your dream hotel can cost hundreds of dollars per night. Why not bring the luxury into your space by channeling the elegant details of these coveted destinations?

From upgrading your entertainment system to a wireless one, to adding some sweet smelling candles to your room, your home will feel completely elevated in no time. Don’t worry, the following 11 steps are simple and more importantly, fit any budget.

11 Steps to the Luxury Bedroom of Your Dreams

1. Create a Custom Turndown Service

Charbonnel et Walker Flavored Chocolate Truffles

Shop at Nordstrom

Regular Price: $29.99

Think about the best turn down service you’ve ever had and do that in your home. I’ve got a sweet tooth, so for me, I’d definitely buy a box of chocolates like this one on sale at Nordstrom and place a piece on my pillow every night.

Deal Tip: Remember, you can shop stress-free at Nordstrom as the site always offers free shipping and returns. Click here for a complete list of stores that do the same.

2. Do you Fancy a Faux Fur Rug?

Shop at Home Depot

Regular Price: $22.30

On top of faux fur being super cozy, the material can bring an extra element of style into a room. Consider Home Depot’s selection that comes in a variety of colors for around $22.

Deal Tip: Sadly, you have to spend at least $45 to avoid a delivery fee. I recommend seeing if you can just pick up the rug at the Home Depot nearest you, at no additional cost.

3. Get Rid of the Wires

Tangled wires are the worst. Take advantage of the Bluetooth technology out there. Bose currently has a high-quality speaker on sale for under $100 and if you order by May 10th, you can even save an extra $30 that will be applied upon checkout.

Deal Tip: Note the site also offers free standard shipping and returns. Plus, you can shop with confidence thanks to the brand’s 90-day risk free trial policy.

4. Don’t Forget Fresh Flowers

5. Matching Robe and Slippers are a Must

6. Get a Mini Bar

Cooluli Classic Mini Fridge

Shop at Best Buy

7. The Softer the Towels, the Better

If your towels are worn down, it’s time for a new set. Luckily, Nordstrom Rack has six for the price of a little less than $30 that claims to give you a luxury hotel feel.

8. Steam your Sheets

True & Tidy Handheld Steamer

Regular Price: $19.98 ($21.98 for non-members)

Shop at Sam’s 

Have you ever stayed at a hotel with wrinkled sheets? Probably not. Grab this handheld steamer for around $20 and take the extra step to steam. The set from Sam’s Club also comes with a fabric shaver that’s perfect for bedsheets.

Deal Tip: The price for non Sam’s Club members is actually $21.98, but from now until June 16th, you can basically get a membership for free. Check out all the sign-up details here.

9. Opt for Candles

10. Grab Coffee and Tea

Shop at Best Buy

It’s common to have complimentary coffee and tea at most hotels. Set up a coffee and tea station for yourself. Plus, who doesn’t love the smell of a warm brew in the morning? Good thing Best Buy has a Keurig on sale now for $79 from $119.99.

11. Roll it Out

Home Collection Premium Ultra Soft Duvet Cover Set

Shop at Kohl’s

Sale Price: Starting at $25.59 | Regular Price: Starting at $79.99

Rolling sheets in your linen closet, instead of folding them makes them look more presentable. Get into the habit of doing this and having extra on hand. Even though you don’t need to change them constantly, you’ll feel fancier knowing you have a fresh set on deck.

Deal Tip: Use promo code YOUSAVE20 at checkout before May 17th to get an additional 20% off your backup bedsheets set.
