Tips for Transforming your Vacation Rental into a Warm and Comfortable Home for your Next Guest
Does your vacation rental tend to bring in a lot of natural light but makes the rental feel hot inside? Have you considered hanging some stylish curtains? This is a great way to not only keep out some of that heat, but a tasteful print helps to add pattern and nuance to the scenery.
Are the walls of your vacation rental bare? Add some photos in a pretty frame to the walls. Whether a pop of color or simple artwork, it will create a more inviting feel to the rental. Notably, if the paint color on the walls is neutral, you’ll undoubtedly want to add some color to make the walls pop. The last thing you want is for the guest to think your vacation rental feels or appears rather dull and empty.
Speaking of adding a pop of color to your vacation rental, if the home consists of neutral colors, you might want to add in some pillows or maybe a comfy throw blanket with a pop of color. On the other hand, if your vacation rental is small and dark, adding in lighter decor accent pieces really improves the appearance of the rental creating a more open feel, and it brightens up the rooms.
Another great way to decorate and transform your vacation rental is by revamping the outdoor space of the home. If the vacation rental has sufficient outdoor space, create a personal oasis for your guest. You can add greenery or if you have the outdoor space add a beautiful accent fountain, as well as comfortable but practical outdoor seating. If your rentals are in the market prone to rain and storms, you may want to get waterproof cushions and if you can, stay away from dark color materials and outdoor metal furniture. Your main goal is to provide a lively and comfortable but practical appearance of the home bringing a great experience for your guest.
