I'm excited to show you how to make a bed like a hotel bed. It's all about the details, so let's get started on creating that cozy, opulent atmosphere.

Luxury Linens by Mellanni

Step 1: Gather Your Luxury Linens

To make your bed feel like a hotel's, you'll need some high-quality linens. I personally love the Mellanni brand for its softness, durability, and affordability. Make sure you have a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, and a beautiful bedspread or coverlet from Mellanni.

Placing the fitted sheet on the mattress

Step 2: Start with the Fitted and Flat Sheets

Begin by placing your fitted sheet onto your mattress.

These Mellanni sheets are fantastic because they are resistant to fading, stains, shrinking, and wrinkling, making them incredibly easy to care for.

Adding the flat sheet over the top

Next, lay the flat sheet on top of the fitted sheet. Ensure it's evenly spread out and tucked in neatly along the sides and bottom of the mattress.

Step 3: Add a Feather Down Duvet

Now, for that extra touch of comfort, add a feather-down duvet. It'll make your bed feel incredibly cozy and inviting.

Adding a bedspread coverlet

Step 4: Layer with a Gorgeous Bedspread Coverlet

Here's where the magic happens! Take your bedspread coverlet, which features a beautiful stitch design, and lay it over the duvet. To achieve that hotel look, follow these folding steps:

Folding the top sheets and bedspread

Fold your top sheets and bedspread in half.

Folding in half again

Fold them in half again.

Now, pull them towards the center of your bed.

This meticulous folding technique creates that crisp, elegant appearance you find in hotel beds.

Fluffing up pillows

Step 5: The Pillow Game

To make your bedding feel even more opulent, add some pillows. My three-piece bedspread set came with a pair of king-size pillow shams. Place these against your headboard for a polished and inviting look.

    I love the look, but curious why Step 1 isn’t a mattress pad. It protects your mattress

    Hello, in my professional experience the number one secret that ALL luxury resorts/hotels employ; besides luxury sheets, is that bedmakers MIST the sheets with water for that unknown yummy cooling feeling when getting into bed!Luxury cottens come out of the dryer wrinkled and this misting instantly releases the wrinkles. So you mist the fitted sheet on the bed, rub sheet to release wrinkles and smooth out mist, cover with top sheet, lightly mist the top of wherever you fold . This is the Magical Luxurious Feeling 🙂
