Tips to Decor Your Vacation Rental Property

The travel business has always been a brilliant way to make money. Although COVID affected the tourism industry, thus impacting many vacation rental business owners, many countries have gradually worked towards reopening, implementing some rules to provide safety for both travelers and business owners.

With the reopening of the travel business, many business owners have used the break to think about new and refreshing ideas such as using a short term rental software to manage their businesses by using a property management system. You shouldn’t be left out! One of the areas to improve on is the décor of your vacation rental property. Businesses have reopened, competition is high, and it is a battle of the smartest! Therefore you need your property to stand out among thousands.

Some travelers look for perfect locations and scenery, but the wiser, more meticulous traveler looks further into key details like the home décor, facilities, and general comfort of the house they will be staying in during the period of their vacation. However, you must also ensure that you have the right tool to help manage your business as clients also look at the ease with which they can book a vacation rental property. You may use tools such as the channel manager for Airbnb which assists with automating your listing on different booking sites thus making your work easier and faster.

Here are some easy-to-do adjustments you can make to improve the interior of your vacation rental property

Give Your Home a Personality

Yes, houses have personalities too. Vibrant, flowery, artsy or vintage; these are just a few of the many options you can choose from. As much as possible, avoid making your rental property bland and tasteless. There are a number of themes you can choose from if you do enough research. The theme you choose will inspire the type of paint you would use on the walls, the furniture and even the type of lights to use in the rooms. However, be careful to not overdo the décor as it becomes quite confusing when it’s done a bit too much. Just make sure that you know the right décor to go with the theme you have in mind.

Use Fresh Paint

Always paint your walls as soon as it starts to get dirty. Painting is a very wise investment in a vacation rental property. It is cheap and can be done in very little time, and boy does it change your rental home! You must first understand that there are colors you must stay away from when painting. Avoid bold and dark colors, you don’t want to scare people off your property. Avoid overly bright colors too. Instead, go for a pastel or neutral color. These colors are the best for vacation rental homes as they give off a peaceful and warm ambiance.

Get the Right Furniture

Dispose of worn-out furniture and replace them with new ones. Invest in quality furniture that is both comfortable and durable so that you wouldn’t need to replace them too frequently. In addition, consider storage spaces for guests such as drawers and closets to make their stay so comfortable they would want to come again.

You do not need to spend too much on updating your vacation rental home. Just a few additions, replacements and readjustments need to be done to make your rental property stand out.
