If you love decorating then you’ll really love decorating a vacation home. While there are some general rules that many people following decorating their homes, the sky is essentially the limit when it comes to a vacation home. Read on to read three of our favorite tips for expertly decorating your vacation home.
1. Let your personality shine through
One of the amazing things about decorating a vacation home is that you can really let your personality shine through. This is the perfect place to take risks! We often warn against doing any type of drastic redecorating in your own home, such as painting a wall a bold color or using a unique texture on the floor, because what seems to pop for a few weeks can get tiring to live with on a daily basis. This is not the case with a vacation home so let your imagination run wild!
2. Remember the exterior space
No matter where your vacation home is, there’s a good chance that it has some amount of exterior space that you’ll want to utilize. Make sure you keep it in mind when you’re decorating. For example, if your vacation home is in the mountains and you head there for skiing purposes, then you’ll want to include some woodsy, dozy décor outside.
On the other hand, if you’re decorating your beach house, pick up some lounge furniture and outfit it with cozy, comfy cushions. Make sure there are plenty of tables and places for everyone to sit down and get comfortable.
3. Prepare for guests
If you plan to entertain friends and family in your vacation home then you want to make sure you’re considering the needs of your guests. Make sure that you decorate guest bedrooms with the same amount of care that you decorate your own bedroom. That means finding the perfect curtains, bedding, and flooring. We recommend keeping the furniture to a minimum and sticking to neutrals in your guest bedrooms to ensure they appeal to and are comfortable for a wide range of people.
