A lot of us are short for time, especially property owners who want to do a bit of redecorating in their holiday lets but don’t live there themselves or are out of the country. You might expect renovating your entire property to take weeks, or maybe even months, but we’ve found some great tips, tricks, and hacks that allow you to do some home improvements on your holiday lets, in just one weekend - meaning you don’t have to miss out on those bookings!
1. Upcycle That Furniture
Guests will immediately take notice that an old cabinet or table now has a ‘vintage-esque’ look by a simple repaint job. You can easily modernise a new piece of furniture by repainting or repurposing homegoods - this allows you to buy antique or cheaper furniture to save you money, and then give it some new life. Start by painting a wooden desk a neutral shade and painting the table legs a pastel blue. Or go for a sleeker look by spray painting your table lamp stands a beautiful chrome. There are tonnes of guides giving you step-by-step help on how to repaint furniture.
2. Go Big or Go Home
Each reception room or larger bedroom should have a focal point, whether it be a bespoke headboard, an antique armchair, or even a large piece of hanging artwork. Making a statement is huge - you can draw the eyes to a multiple picture gallery wall, a large mirror, or an original fireplace, and sometimes this is all you need.
3. Soft Furnishings
Some extra soft furnishings are a great addition to bedrooms and living spaces, and they change the style or theme of the room without having to repaint any walls or buy new furniture. Add some fluffy cushions to your living room armchair for extra comfort, or add a throw to the master bed which can double up as a blanket for your guests. The people staying in your home will love a soft carpeted rug if you have hard-floors in your bedrooms.
4. Be Eco-Friendly
