Do you plan to rent out your home in Mexico when you are not using it?
If so, you want it to look spectacular in the pictures you post on rental sites. Everyone loves a beautiful master bedroom. Anyone planning a vacation wants to get away from it all and relax.
Here are some tips to help you design the quintessential relaxing bedroom that will have renters drooling to stay at your place.
Select a theme for your room. Here are the three most popular:
Mid-century modern is really gaining in popularity. With clean lines, use of different materials and beautiful curves, its no wonder that it is making such a comeback. Mid-century modern is a celebration of form and function and is a perfect style choice for smaller rooms. Headboards and dressers are most often natural-stain wood. Splash brighter colors like orange, red or lime on an accent chair and toss cushions to complete the look.
The coastal style is also hot right now. The photos of your property can remind your renter of what they will enjoy when they stay. Selecting a bedroom suite that has them remembering their day at the beach will create the experience they are seeking. Distressed-wood headboards and nightstands looking like they have been weather-beaten for years make a great statement. Pair with luxurious white linens and crisp sheets and your guests may prefer to stay in bed than venture down to the seaside.
Natural décor has been proven to reduce stress. It makes sense. The idea is to get away from technology and back to the tranquility of nature. What better for a bedroom than this décor style? Uneven headboards made from a natural slab of parota wood, nightstands of cactus bases or bamboo ladders to hang your fluffy white towels are options to consider when styling your natural-themed décor bedroom.
With the key elements in place, its time to add more sizzle. Add a lot of pillows. Although it is a problem back home in our day-to-day lives, when we are on holiday, it never seems to be an issue. In your rental photos, it will make a huge difference between average and spectacular.
Add a soft, plush rug beside the bed. Texture in decorating is essential, so the fluffier, the better. When staging your bedroom for pictures, place a beautiful white terry robe on the bed or a wood tray with a couple of glasses of orange juice and a fresh tropical flower.
Instead of table lamps, create more visual appeal with hanging pendants over the nightstands. I just installed some stunning wrought iron pendant lamps in a bedroom suite. They were the same price as table lamps, but the drama they create is far superior.
