We all know that during the COVID-19 pandemic we should stay home, but that does not mean that we cannot work to improve the look and value of our vacation rental. Use this time to maximize the value of your accommodation and be ready for the season once this pandemic ends. In the following text, we bring you tips on how to refresh and beautify your accommodation.

 

Be Imaginative

Paint the walls to refresh the space. Arrange the decorations, add some detail in a vibrant colour to enliven the space itself and to avoid having a monotonous interior. We recommend not putting too many unnecessary decorations, because less is always more. Present your guests with the details representing the destination showing them you care about their satisfaction and that you look out for details.

 

Be Personalized

Adding personality to space can be risky, so don’t think too hard. Start with what the guest might like. Include the necessary elements that the guest will need during their stay.

 

Be Your Own Guest

Experience your accommodation as if you were a guest. It can help identify which areas need to be repaired or simply improved. Sleep in a bed, take a shower and use bath towels. If space is dedicated solely to guests, try cooking in the kitchen to make sure everything works and you have all the tools you need. If you are unable to try this, ask your friends or family for help, because this is how you can find potential fixes you might not otherwise see.

 

Consider the following questions and take the time to improve your accommodation.

Are towels accessible?

Is the shower high/low enough for guests?

Do you have space near the front door where guests can leave things like keys, bags, or jackets?

Are basic resources available, such as cell phone charging sockets?

Are light switches easy to locate?

Are standard features like doors and windows functional and easy to use?
