This can make or break a room. Lights need to be dimmable, and you should be able to turn all of them off with one quick flick of a bedside switch.

Create a bed as wonderful as a hotel bed. It will, naturally, have freshly ironed sheets. Thread count isn’t always everything – often a quality-made 400-count sheet can be better than one that’s often 700. In fact, if you go too high, the sheets will become stiff. There should be a hard and soft pillow to choose between, and a soft-to-the-skin throw to snuggle under.
