Hotel rooms always ooze comfort and coziness and recreating that same feel at home can be a nightmare - until now. Aside from buying the best pillows, there's a simple swap that will have your bedroom feel and look luxurious for life. According to bedroom experts Georgia Metcalfe and Feng Shui specialist Marites Allen there are five simple steps to giving your bedroom a hotel upgrade.

But before you rush out to replace your bedding, there is one that is vital and it involves taking a closer look at our duvet cover size. If you own a double bed, you'd buy a double duvet cover right? And for king-size, a king-size? and so on. Well, apparently we've been doing it all wrong... 

As potentially one of the most important elements of a room, Georgia, of French Bedroom Company explains how 'size matters' when it comes to duvets, she said, “Using a duvet that is a size bigger than your mattress – for example, a super king duvet on a king size bed – will create a hotel feel and instantly make the room more luxurious.”
