the motivation is a difficult economy or the desire for a greater
degree of personal freedom and privacy, many vacationers are choosing
private home rentals and community vacation rentals when they select
accommodation for their big trip. A vacation rental offers all the
amenities and comforts of home because it is a home. Cottages,
condos, apartments and even multi-bedroom homes are all available for
vacation rental, all with the same appealing benefits such as having
a full kitchen, laundry facilities, large living and dining spaces
and, in general, the ability to move about freely and comfortably and
with privacy. Depending on the location of the vacation rental, the
home may have direct access to the beach or nearby waterways or may
have a carefully landscaped yard or garden. Unlike a private home, a
vacation rental can stand up to comparison with an actual hotel or
resort in its amenities, including high-quality bedding and linens
and conveniences such as single-serve coffeemakers and access to
vacation rentals are located in resort-quality communities. These
types of rentals are very appealing to many vacationers as they offer
the atmosphere of living in an apartment or housing community,
including organized vacation
Guests have the chance to socialize with fellow travelers when
desired and can return to the quiet and seclusion of their own rental
whenever they like.
for updating a vacation rental interior
the interior of a vacation rental fresh and trendy may seem like an
expensive undertaking, but there are many ways to update
with small touches and techniques that can increase the appeal of the
rental, making it more easily rentable and memorable for those who
basic way to begin is with a little change in room color or texture.
Brightening up a room with a fresh coat of paint in a warm neutral
shade, then adding an accent wall or trim in a bold tint can bring an
average room into the realm of high-end décor very quickly. The
addition of an elegant mirror adds class to a living or dining area,
and a couple of attractive prints or paintings can give a room a feel
of personal style and lived-in charm. Neutral photographs of nature,
animals and locales are also a great addition and can be easily found
and framed for little or no cost.

a coat of paint or some fine art is not enough of an update for the
rental, a change in furniture may be in order. Vacation rentals are
often located in sunny or beach locales, so wicker furniture would be
a great addition.
furniture is composed of a framework around which branches or vines
of other materials are woven. One of the most common materials used
to make wicker furniture is rattan, a palm vine grown in Southeast
Asia. Rattan is strong, flexible and will not rot; it can be
separated and woven or simply bent into the shape need for the
furniture piece. It is often paired with bamboo, another hard wood.
Rattan may be left natural, painted, stained or varnished, though
white is the most popular choice.
furniture is most familiarly used in outdoor patio furniture; a chair
or two, a sofa, a set of tables and even a bar are excellent choices
for an outdoor area that encourages socializing and even the
occasional party. Wicker furniture is also a great choice for indoor
spaces. A living room set may dress up a family room, and a wicker
dinette, topped with a glass top, can open up the space of a small
dining area. Even the bedroom can benefit from the addition of wicker
furniture – everything from king size beds down to end tables,
dressers and vanity tables.

are many advantages
to using wicker furniture
to update a vacation rental interior. First of all, wicker furniture
is very strong and durable, ensuring years of heavy usage. It is very
lightweight, so repositioning furniture at any time is easy for even
a non-athlete to do. Wicker is also inexpensive in comparison to
antique furniture or more contemporary pieces.
furniture is relatively easy
and care for and, with regular maintenance, pieces will last for
years. A damp cloth is sufficient to clean the wood, with a thorough
vacuuming every few months. More thorough cleaning may be
accomplished with a mild soapy water and a soft brush, then the
pieces can stand in the sun until dry. Natural wicker should be oiled
occasionally with linseed oil.
a vacation rental can make the unit more appealing and enjoyable for
the vacationers staying there. A few small changes and the addition
of comfortable and practical pieces, such as wicker furniture, is a
great way to accomplish this.
