Vacation Rental Decorating Ideas

If you’re one of the many people who owns a vacation rental, you likely find yourself thinking about how you can maximize your investment regularly.  Obviously, you need to make sure that it’s rented as often as possible and you need to make sure that all of the basics such as power and plumbing are always in working order.  One of the ways that you can add some demand for your property is by doing some vacation rental design.  It doesn’t take long for any type of decorating to get a bit dated and used, particularly if there are people in and out of a home or condo constantly.  Below you’ll find some ideas regarding vacation rental decorating that you may want to consider if you’re feeling that it’s time to update your property’s look.

 

Stress-Free Surfaces

One way that you can add to the enjoyment of your property is by making sure that your surfaces are as stress-free as possible.  That means that your tabletops should be something like glass and your countertops should be something like granite or some other type of stone.  Avoid things like wood or anything delicate with your vacation rental decorating, as this will not only have guests worrying about chips and stains, but it will also increase the likelihood that you’ll need to do some regular maintenance between guests.

 

Easy-Clean Floors

The same idea goes for floors.  Vacation rental design should always include floors that are some sort of tile, as sensitive wood or other surfaces are bound to stain, scuff and perhaps chip.  People are in and out of your property constantly, and the volume of foot traffic in these types of places is enormous.  Make sure your floors can be properly cleaned with nothing more than a mop, some hot water and some type of cleanser. 

 

Durable Furniture Coverings

The majority of people who make use of vacation rentals are families or groups of families.  That means that there will most likely be little ones sitting on couches and watching movies or otherwise entertaining themselves.  Your vacation rental design should include furniture with durable coverings so that when the inevitable spills occur, you don’t need to spend money to have these pieces professionally cleaned.  Once again, this will lead to much less stress and worry on the part of your guests and therefore more enjoyment of your property.

 

Work With An Interior Designer

If you’re still not sure of how you should proceed with your vacation rental design, a great palce to start is to work with a Decorist designer.  Your designer will answer any questions you have and will make sure that you have exactly what you need to update your vacation rental property. Your designer will also be a great way to make sure you keep to your design budget, and can help you make decisions on what to invest more in and what to save on.
