169. Make Your STR Pop With Design, Decor & Staging

Jun 23, 2022

Good design is an example of “ONE thing” that will help your listing stand out. Implementing professional staging and unique decor in your short-term rental can lead directly to more bookings and higher revenue.

Gone are the days of just throwing a rental together and hoping for listings. The industry is getting more competitive as boutique hotels and experience stays are gaining popularity. Focusing your short-term rental around good design principles is a near guarantee for success in the competitive STR landscape.

Tips for design in your STR:

  1. Use wallpaper (temporary or not) to create a bold accent wall
  2. Don’t skimp on the often-overlooked elements like light fixtures and live plants
  3. Save money on artwork by getting printables on Etsy and printing & framing it yourself
  4. Create timeless backdrops like subway tile and white walls which give you freedom to adapt your listing over time without turning it into a construction project
