The bedding is perhaps one of the best parts of a hotel room. There is just something relaxing about the mix of sheets and pillows. Of course, hotels also have expensive feather beds, but you do not have to go out and buy a new mattress just to improve your sleep quality. Much of the comfort comes from a higher quality of bedding. 

Choose sheets with a higher thread count and avoid problematic fitted sheets. You might notice that many hotels use two flat sheets instead. Mix a down comforter with two to four extremely comfortable down filled pillows for the ultimate bed setup. Throw a cotton duvet cover at the end of the bed in case you get chilly, and you will have the perfect hotel-inspired bed.

Find a Comfortable Temperature

Temperature might affect your sleep quality more than you realize. At bedtime, your body reduces its temperature in preparation for a good night of sleep. This means that a cooler room often leads to a better quality of sleep. If your bedroom is humid or stuffy, it is likely that you are waking up a lot, or tossing and turning throughout the night.

Keeping up with regular HVAC maintenance is important for maintaining a consistent temperature in your bedroom. Preventative maintenance keeps your home and, more importantly, your bedroom cool so that you can get a good night's rest.

Use Incandescent Lighting

Numerous studies have shown how technology lights have an adverse effect on sleep quality. Blue lights have been proven to increase blood pressure, mess with circadian rhythm, and reduce the amount of melatonin, a chemical that is important for sleep.

Some five-star hotel rooms are equipped with incandescent LED lights that emit a sense of calmness. Hue smart bulbs are another lighting option, and there are also advantages to waking up to white lights. Setting up a smart lighting system that dims the lights at bedtime and brightens them in the morning is an ideal setup.

Choose Relaxing Color Palettes

You will rarely see bold color patterns in a hotel room. Part of this is to guarantee that the room meets the style preferences of all guests and promotes a good night's sleep. In fact, you might notice that the majority of hotel rooms are all white. This is because white bedding creates a sense of premium luxury. 

If you do want to add a pop of color to your bedroom, consider subtle or modern shades of gray or blue. You can always add a more creative color pattern to your living room or family room.

Upgrading your bedroom to hotel-quality is one of the best home projects you can do. Your sleep quality affects every area of your life. When you get a quality night of sleep, you will feel better and can be more productive throughout the day.

These are super ideas. I know that previously I did have a hard time on trips and sleeping in hotels.
