Tips to decorate your rental property

Real estate acquisition for rent is always an exciting business and comes with less risk. Owning a property that generates profits has become an attractive option for conservative investors. However, many wonder how to ensure that the property provides benefits.

In addition to a good location and favourable conditions, a well-presented decoration can be a determining factor for the success of the investment.

Follow these tips to decorate the perfect rental home that will withstand the wear of time and attract potential renters.

 

  • Cleaning:

Once a property is on the market, it is necessary for every little space to “shine”, even in areas where it is often not noticed, such as ceilings or baseboards. A clean and tidy room suggests that potential buyers have cared for and maintained the space.

 

  • House colour:

In the case of rented homes, you have to be careful with styles and tastes since rented properties tend to have smaller surfaces and, therefore, are more suitable for whites and creams. These colours create the best effect and make the rooms more spacious.

 

  • Furniture

Most of the time, it is advisable to leave the house unfurnished, as it carries more advantages, such as that the owner does not run the risk of damaging expensive goods that are not covered by the tenant’s deposit.

However, there are areas of the rental market where it is necessary to provide the property already furnished. Many owners believe that offering a complete rental package for small properties or parts can be very profitable. In these leased properties, it is necessary to provide furniture such as a bed, a table, lamps, appliances and essential kitchen items.

 

  • Plants

Decorating a house with plants instantly adds character. Beyond the decorative aspect, the plants have multiple health benefits, such as colds, sore throats, less dry skin or coughs. Many plants, notably the peace lily, Gerber daisy, and bamboo palm, also help remove pollutants from the air. Plants have also been shown to help reduce stress levels and increase productivity.

 

  • Transform the home into a natural experience

The decoration of a house does not consist only in what is seen, but in all the experience that can be lived. Seeking the activation of other senses, whether through music, personalised scents, or different textures in the design, can provide the visitor with an idealisation of their life at home.

 

  • Play with light colours and unify the environment

The light colours bring luminosity to the space and enlarge any room. If you also try to give continuity to walls, floors and ceilings using the same colours and textures, you will get a harmonious home to the taste of 99% of your potential tenants. When you decorate for rent, avoid very marked proposals and personal preferences. Your goal is to find a suitable tenant in a short time and who, in addition, is willing to pay a higher rent to live in a well-decorated house.

 

  •  Fine-tune bathrooms and kitchen

The bathroom and kitchen are items carefully analysed by a potential tenant. Changing the faucet in the bathroom, installing a good shower and replacing the mouldy curtain with a glass partition are usually highly valued improvements for those who rent. If your tiles are cracked or just too 70s decor, there are good paint options for wet areas that will allow you to cover the most psychedelic pattern.

 

  •  Look for an object of desire:

All houses have a strong point, although sometimes it is difficult to find it. It is essential to see that hook and empower it so that the tenant cannot resist it. We list some that we know work: ​​a well-organized dressing room or closet, a small garden or porch with well-cared plants. These hooks work great when the decision-maker is a woman. If the one renting is a man, perhaps we will win him over with an oversized garage, a barbecue in the garden or a living room with a fireplace.

 

  •  Ask a professional for help:

Once you have painted, cleaned, repaired, you have the option of leaving the house rough or decorating it with the help of an interior designer. Having professional advice will save you time and money, and you will discover options for materials or furniture that you would never have considered. 

If you rent the house without furniture, the renders (hyper-realistic 3D images of how the space will be) will help you better present your house in the real estate portals where you advertise it. 

If you want to rent a furnished house, professional help will work with you. The professional service buys the furniture and takes it to the address you indicate, even taking care of the assembly and photos of the space once it is decorated. In addition, they also offer you beautiful prices that an individual does not have access to.

 

  • Give the tenant a bonus by helping them settle in.

 

The tenant likely wants the house empty because he has some furniture or thinks that he can solve everything with an afternoon at IKEA. However, this is not always true. He’ll be struggling for months, longing for his old home. If you hired a decorating project with a decor company just to have renderings available, you can always “give” the project to him so that we can dress his house. It will not cost you anything, and you will have been like a lord.

 

You can also facilitate the move, give him some addresses of shops in the area or offer information about schools for his children (if he is clear about them). All these “moments of truth” in an experience as traumatic as a move will help you earn points if something goes wrong or the home is not as great as you led it to believe. 

But if you also want to rent your house situated in far-flung areas, things get even more complicated. Perhaps the renovation company or furniture store has difficulty accessing your home because it is in a small town on the coast. Besides, you are in the city, and you don’t have the time or the desire to manage a remote rental.

In these cases, the real estate portals and the professional advice of an interior designer who takes care of everything become even more relevant. The digital world allows us to manage everything online, from anywhere and at any time. You will only need a Wi-Fi connection and voilá; your house will be beautiful to fulfil the dreams of the most demanding vacationer.
