Vacation Rental Decorating Tips

Whether you’re revamping an outdated property or starting from scratch with a brand-new purchase, decorating your vacation home rental can feel like a daunting task. The good news is that implementing a few simple design tips can quickly enhance the performance of your property and set your listing apart from the competition.

Read on for property management tips that will transform your home into a luxury rental and create a memorable experience for your guests!

1. Create Functional Spaces

Think outside the box to utilize the space in your vacation rental! You can easily turn an awkward kitchen corner into a coffee bar or transform your basement into a theater room for maximum guest enjoyment.

2. Embrace A Theme

From a ski haven near the slopes to a nautical oasis on the coast, embracing a theme for your rental can honor the local environment, inform decor choices, and provide a unique experience.

3. Feature Local Art

Incorporating artwork sourced from local vendors is a great way to add a personal touch to your vacation rental while supporting small businesses in the community!

4. Less Is More

The last thing you want is for your rental to feel cluttered. Cut back on the knickknacks, select only one or two statement pieces, and remove furniture that doesn't serve a purpose.

5. Lighting Matters

Lighting sets the mood for your entire vacation rental and has a huge impact on guest experience. Warm, bright light fixtures can make a dark space in your home feel more welcoming.

6. Plan Color Choices

A little bit of color can go a long way! We recommend solid, neutral colors for furniture and bedding, but you can add character to your rental with a colorful accent wall or bright decor items!

7. Remove Personal Items

Accidents happen, even to the most diligent rental guests, which is why owners should remove all personally valuable items from the home to avoid damage.

8. Select Durable furniture

All vacation rentals sustain wear and tear, but investing in sturdy, durable furniture from the start will save you money in the long run and keep your guests happy.
