The smaller details always made a difference in making any old house feeling and looking new and updated. Take door hinges for example. If it’s creaking and not so sturdy, chances are that you are reminded of the age of the house every time you use the doors. Doorbells, railings, window latches…these are all things that work quite in the same way. It also pays to remember that a fresh coat of paint, both on walls and furniture, can go quite a long way to make your ancient home feel newer. Do you own a vacation home that is seeing less of you with each passing year? If you do, then it’s natural for you to think of renting it out for those days that you don’t use it. Here are few ways in which you can make it more appealing to your potential renters.
Take away the imperfections
Unless the house happens to be fairly new, almost every house has its own share of shortcomings and imperfections. If you had an idea of using this home as a summer let or a vacation home right from the beginning, chances are that you might have put some effort to make sure your home doesn’t look run down and shabby. However, if this is not the case, then you might want to consider home renovations extensions Adelaide. Even small fixing ups (like fixing leaking taps or replacing showerheads) can go a long way to make your vacation home more appealing to your renters.
Make it come alive
If you decide to fix up your vacation home, then there are a few things to remember. Whether it’s perfect bathroom renovations or master bedroom makeovers, always take the time to properly plan it out. Budget things, and play around with the lay out. Experiment and be creative when it comes to the color and texture; regardless to whether its for the walls, or the bed sheets. As we want it to be appealing, try not to have contradicting or disturbing wall art around. It’s also good idea to make sure every part of your vacation house gets plenty of sunlight; something else that adds to the appealing factor.
Modernize and update
Think of it this way; would you like to spend your vacation in a house that has all its appliances and fixtures from the previous decade? Doesn’t sound all that fun, does it? No doubt it will affect your mood and might even take away the fun from your vacation. Your renters will also, pretty much, feel this way; especially if they plan on spending most of their vacation indoors. So take a little time to make your home feel a little modern. Taps, televisions, power outlets (wall sockets with the USB option are all in fashion now…!), and mirrors are all best when kept up to date.
Adopt a few tricks
Let’s face it, without the proper advertising, even the most beautiful houses won’t get renters. Make a page for your vacation home on social media platforms. Make sure to use your photographic and editing skills, as well as your people skills to make that page engaging and happening. Apart from that, if you want to get repeat renters, then along with providing a friendly and efficient stay, it’s also a good idea to give them small welcome gifts or parting gifts.
