5 Interior Design Tips for A Beach Vacation Rental

Added: Mar 04, 2022
Category: Island Info

You will have a greater return on your investment if you pay close attention to your beach vacation rental's interior design. Unfortunately, some rental owners make the mistake of putting atmosphere and aesthetics on the back burner. This should be one of your top priorities. When travelers book vacations, they want the place they’re staying at to feel special. If they remember the experience, including how cozy the space was, they’ll be more likely to choose your place again next time. The more memorable you can make your rental, the better. However, there are a few additional factors you should keep in mind:

  1. Choose Long-lasting Furniture

    Beach vacation rentals are different from normal rentals in that they see more wear and tear. Families come back from the beach sandy and sweaty after soaking up the sunshine, and the dirt and grime will accumulate. Then, you want to think about the possibility of spills and stains for every stay. Over time, this will have an impact on your furnishings. Choosing cheap furniture might seem cost-efficient at first, but if you have to replace it year after year, that gets expensive. Pick long-lasting furniture as well as fabrics and surfaces that are easy to clean.

  2. Incorporate the Local Flavor

    Vacationers often travel long distances to reach their vacation destination. Most of the time, they aren’t too familiar with the area. Your property acts as their first introduction to the local scene. Why not give them the full welcome? Hang local artwork, select coffee table books that showcase the town’s best features, and provide menus from nearby restaurants.

  3. Include Thoughtful Details

    More than anything, renters love to see owners include meaningful, caring touches. Picture a stack of fluffy towels sitting on a bed topped with a wrapped piece of chocolate. Imagine a basket filled with snacks on the kitchen counter, or an open guestbook with handwritten notes from other guests. These are the little things that will make the most difference. In reviews, people won’t often mention hardwood floors or lighting fixtures (even if these features are nice to include). They’ll mention the thoughtful details they appreciated.

  4. Make it Feel Homey

    If you’re unsure about how to design your vacation rental, think about what makes your own home feel inviting. When you arrive home after a long day at work, what makes the space feel comfortable? Is it the soft mattress you can sink into? Is it the warm lighting that illuminates the pages of your favorite book? Maybe it’s the wall art or record collection that represents your interests. When renters enter your property, they should feel like they’re coming home. Create the space that you would enjoy. Chances are, others will find it equally welcoming.

  5. Have Fun with It

    Owning a vacation rental is a business venture, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun. If you focus too much on pinching pennies, you’ll miss out on providing a memorable guest experience. Don’t keep the space bare, cold and empty. Let your personality shine and let loose a little! Designing a beach vacation rental for families to enjoy is exciting. The more fun you have with it, the more fun they’ll have when they arrive.
