Tags – Interior Tips for Rental Property
When renting out a property, there are certain criteria you need to consider.
Firstly, it needs to be attractive but have wide appeal too.
For instance, there’s no point in decorating in vivid colours which might only be to your taste. Similarly, think of what would appeal to the type of tenant you’re seeking and gear it towards their taste.
Similarly, if letting a furnished property, it’s important to make it homely but not to clutter the rooms too much.
Whilst homely touches are key, it’s important to maintain a stylish look to keep a balance. Above all, it’s crucial to maximise the feeling of space in a property and rooms too heavily furnished will prevent that.
Building on that, here are our five top interior tips to attract tenants:
Keep the feeling of space.
Whatever you do, ensure a minimalist style is high on your agenda.
Whilst you might feel smaller lamps or vases would make the space feel larger, the opposite is actually true. Consequently, one or two larger pictures or a bigger lamp or vase will create a greater sense of space.
Making a property ooze quality is critical in getting – and keeping – tenants interested.
Moreover, if the tenant’s impression is one of quality, they’re much more likely to stay and maintain the property carefully. Therefore, your investment is not only in the property but in the tenants too.
The first impression tenants have when viewing a property will be long lasting.
Whether you add a few fresh flowers or a plug-in air freshener, these touches will have a positive effect.
Prospective tenants might view several properties in a day and if yours stands out, it’ll be a winner. Additionally, a welcoming atmosphere will create that sought after, homely feel too.
In order to emphasise the feeling of space and light, using much lighter colours to decorate is advisable.
However, brilliant white can be too stark so opt, instead, for an off-white shade for the walls.
Similarly, clever use of lighting can also help enhance the effect of using pale colours whilst injecting the necessary warmth.
A major factor which will send a tenant swooning is storage!
Whether a family with children or a singleton, everyone is always looking for maximum storage capacity in a property.
Therefore, your property will be hugely attractive if you can offer great storage solutions. Built in wardrobes are the best.
Simultaneously, maximising space in the bedroom whilst offering neat cupboard space, integral storage, ticks a lot of boxes.
Consequently, if you can incorporate mirrored doors into the built-in storage, even better!
Mirrors create a fantastic illusion of light and space, reflecting back any natural light. As a result, your property will be shown to the very best effect.
