Add personality to your rental.
Avoid fully decorating your vacation rental with pieces from well-known chain stores in order to differentiate your property from others. Choose pieces, colors, and patterns that tell a story or represent the place where your property is located in order to create a unique and full of personality space.
But… keep it clutter free.
Decorating your space is a great way to make it more inviting but do it in moderation. You should make your guests feel at home instead of feeling like they are breaking into someone’s home. Decorate but keep some clutter-free spaces so that your guests can place their personal items and feel that this is a decluttered space, ideal for relaxing.
Good lighting is super important.
Lighting is a very important point when it comes to creating a welcoming environment. If your property doesn’t have much natural light, make sure to create several sources of light.
Extra tip: Opt for white lights in the kitchen and bathroom so that these spaces are well lit and yellow lights in the living room and bedrooms to create a cozier atmosphere.
Pick a cohesive color palette.
In order to cohesively unify the different rooms, choose a palette with colors that complement each other. You can, for example, choose neutral tones when deciding on paints and furniture and then, add some pops of color (decorative pieces and textures) that repeat themselves throughout the various rooms.
It’s also a good idea to adapt the color palette to the location of your rental, choosing neutral tones with blue pops of color for properties by the sea, for example.
Play with textures.
Another way to give your short-term rental more personality and make it more comfortable and inviting is through textures. This is achieved through pillows, blankets, curtains, etc.
Don’t forget the mirror.
Something that cannot miss from your vacation rental is a full-length mirror. In addition to being functional, it is a good way to give dimension to a room, making it look a little bigger and brighter.
Go for white bed sheets and towels.
In addition to being reminiscent of a hotel, towels and white sheets don’t fade and can be bleached, thus allowing you to remove stains easily.
Give life to your rental.
To make your vacation rental even more inviting, use plants to bring the decor to life. You can choose artificial plants that don’t require maintenance and still add a special touch to the room. If you want to take a step forward, why not create a fresh flower arrangement to welcome your guests? They will certainly appreciate the gesture.
