Easy & affordable ways to add appeal to your short term rental property


As most short term properties are booked without viewing, adding visual appeal can increase rents and reduce vacant periods. Filling your home with visual joy doesn’t need to be a complicated task; we have seven easy and affordable ways to decorate your property. Take a look and get inspired!

1. Light up your property

Many people probably associate lights with Christmas but a simple string of white lights can be such a great and playful home decoration accessory at any time of the year. As a bonus it´s a great source of light to enhance photographs.

2. Painting is a classic makeover potion

Instead of repainting a whole room, you can just paint one wall in a focal colour or paint a contrasting rectangle over a sofa to use it as your mini ” gallery” space. You can also paint the insides of bookshelves or your chairs in an unexpected colour giving a refreshed air to your property.

3. Transform your space with greenery

Having plants in any room makes you feel more alive and also gives a simple modern appeal. In your kitchen add a small herb garden to your windows to add some colour.

4. Don´t forget about your floors

Just like walls, floors need attention too. If you are not able to completely change the surface, you can just add an area rug or plants to colour your space. By making this change even your walls will look different. If you are able to completely change the surface, consider mosaics or wood floors which make any space look better.

5. Give your furniture some breathing room

Try not overcrowding a room; you don’t need to fill up a space with lots of furniture. Spend more of your budget on fewer but better quality pieces and your room will look better than if it is stuffed with too many things.

6. Be yourself

Personality is what really will make your space look great. Make your own statement and have fun. The more combinations you try, the more you will begin to see what works better for you. And don´t forget to be yourself!
