Durability

Buy cheap and you will spend more. When it comes to holiday lettings one of the most important things you can do in order to maximise your investment is to spend well and buy durable furniture. Prepare for children and pets, one great way to increase your bookings is to cater for for our furry four legged friends as well. You could do this by offering dog beds and dog bowls etc. Durable and easy to clean flooring and fabrics also help, particularly wood and laminate floors which make it easy to brush away sand and get rid of stains. We have a great range of durable furniture on our website such as Ethnicraft, Calligaris, Mastrella and many more.

Appeal To The Mass Market

When designing your holiday let it is important to sometimes go against your own personal preference in order to appeal to the masses and increase your bookings and revenue. One of the best ways to take your preferences out of the equation is to use interior design services such as ours, from home styling, one room services and entire properties, irrespective of size, our design services cover, Cornwall and the South West. If your budget doesn’t allow for this, then one of the most simple ways to appeal to a large audience is to keep it clean and modern. Keep the walls white or neutral with maybe one feature wall in the main living space. Introduce splashes of colour through accessorises such as cushions, art work, rugs, etc. Keep the furniture fairly neutral also, no large pieces of bold bright colour. Shades of darker grey in places can offer good contrast to the whites and add a modern feel to the theme.

In return this can lead to good reviews and make it easier for you to secure more bookings in the future.
