DECORATING A HOME FOR RENT: 5 BASIC TIPS
Decorating for Rent: 5 Basic Tips
Decorating for rent is not the same as decorating your own home. When decorating for yourself you follow your tastes and needs, but that is something you should not do if you want to rent your flat . There are some keys to making your home the most appealing for your future tenant. It is these simple guidelines that will help you to make your floor or house the one chosen, at least as far as the first impression is concerned. That is why today, we will see the basic tips to make your rental home look like the perfect home.
1. Light the space
A bright stay gives a sense of spaciousness and cleanliness. The white walls or neutral and clear colors will help give light to the place. Take advantage of the windows and do not cover them too much with curtains or blinds, especially if they are dark or small. Choose also furniture of shades that reflect well the light.
2. Do not recharge your stays
Your rental home must have what it takes to live in it and not much else. Let your tenant complete the stays with his own accessories and do not overdo it with the auxiliary furniture. The clearer the bigger the atmosphere will seem, and this will also help us to get that sense of cleanliness and breadth that we talked about in the previous point.
3. Furnish and decorate “all” and “for all”
With “everything” I mean that you do not leave forgotten areas like the entrance or hallway just because they are passing, they will also give points when choosing a home. With “for all” I mean that you do not know who your future tenant will be, you should not anticipate their needs. If you have two rooms do not prepare one specifically for a child or for an office; a basic guest room can become both later, for example.
4. Get a neutral and timeless decoration
When your decor is for rent and not for you, you can not let yourself be carried too much by the trends of the moment. Choose a more timeless furniture, it is better to succumb to what is most worn in some accessory or secondary cabinet, thus giving a modern touch to your home without diminishing the range of your prospective future tenants.
5. Add value with details
While the other tips are aimed at creating a more “global” decoration and a more universal taste, the latter advice is to make your home different from the others. A neutral decoration may appeal to people in general, but what can make the difference are the small details. Not to be exceeded, as we mentioned in point two, but to provide some accessories that make a simple floor in a future home. Add plants , scented candles and personal details like nice tablecloths on the dining table, if you get someone to imagine living there … Mission accomplished!
