When it comes to buying furniture for your home, your personal taste and style mean everything. But choosing furniture to optimize the space in your short term rental means putting yourself in the shoes of future guests. By focusing on the design and functionality, you can design a vacation rental that results in not only happy guests and great reviews, but also repeat stays.

Getting Started

When it comes to getting a vacation rental ready, Pillow helps take the worry out of the process by providing things like towels and linens. One of the perks of using Pillow is crossing these essentials off your list before moving on to the fun of creating an atmosphere with the perks and amenities your guests will love – and tell their friends about.

First, look at each space and consider how the room might be used. For example, a great room connected to a kitchen might be used for eating, watching TV, playing games, talking or sleeping. All of these activities require the appropriate furniture, such as:

  • Dining table and chairs
  • Pull-out sofas or sectionals
  • Coffee table or large davenport
  • Easy chairs
  • Side tables

The lighting should be bright to accommodate all possible activities, so consider investing in some floor and table lamps in addition to any overhead lighting. Dimmer switches are a great affordable option that allows your guest to adjust the brightness to any activity.

Next, use the furniture to create groupings. Placing two easy chairs and a side table at one end of the room, the sofas and sectionals near the television, and the dining table and chairs near the kitchen can break up any space into clear gathering spots.

Colors, Styles, and Fabrics

Choosing the right colors, styles, and fabrics for the walls and furniture in your vacation rental help create a calming atmosphere and optimize the natural light of each room. Keep furniture colors as neutral as possible and provide pops of extra color using pillows, throws, area rugs and wall accent pieces. Select furniture fabrics that are durable as well as comfortable to avoid needing to purchase replacements each year.

Unique home decor stores like Pier One Imports or Cost Plus World Market offer colorful and eclectic collections of furnishings, draperies, throw pillows and accent pieces to give your vacation rental a faraway and exotic feeling. Stores like Ikea and CB2 can give you just the right touches for your taste and budget. And don’t forget to wander through local artisan shops for paintings or photos of surrounding scenery to add a taste of the area’s personality to your vacation rental.

The Extra Mile

Offering extras like Wi-Fi, Netflix and Hulu keeps your guests connected and entertained while on vacation. Add black-out curtains to bedrooms to ensure quality sleep any time of day. Provide a blow dryer in each bathroom and keep an iron and ironing board in one of the bedroom closets (these are actually essentials if you tailor your rental towards business travels). Each room should have a quality mattress, pillows, and extra blankets and sheets in each closet; make sure each bed has a fresh mattress pad, too. For spills and other mishaps, keep a vacuum cleaner, mop and bucket, and a broom and dustpan in the closet nearest the kitchen.

The Comforts of Home

The key to furnishing your rental home is comfort. Touchable quality creates a relaxed “home away from home” experience for all your guests. When guests are comfortable, they’re happy. Happy guests leave great reviews, which lead to increased bookings for your property.
