Haus Tips: Styling tricks for your short term rental!

A post by: Kate Aubrey-Dunn

You can enhance your space with the power of styling!

Many people view styling as an extra when it comes to the presentation of a property.  In actual fact, these finishing touches can completely transform a space from something that is nice to a space that is unique and outstanding.

There are many ways to uniquely style a property in a way that won’t cost the earth and will help your listing stand out.  As for what style you should use, the best way is to know your demographic.

For example many Brooklynites visit the Hudson Valley and the Catskills, in general this demographic prefers mid-century design with antiques and vintage touches.

An older demographic may not be quite as interested in that, and may prefer a more classic comfortable surrounding.

Here are a few simple tips to bring “Hygge”  into your space.


Textile choice : Don’t skimp on the textiles you choose!

By purchasing quality plush duvets and large throw pillows, this adds instant cozy and luxury to any bedroom. ( I strongly advise against going the polyester route )  It doesn’t matter if you have a luxury or rustic space, what guest doesn’t appreciate a great towel!  Purchasing towels that are large enough to wrap around yourself feel luxurious and is important to most guests.


Lighting : The biggest mood killer can be bad lighting!

The use of lamps, floor lamps or even a feature light is always a great idea to bring softness into your space.


Indoor Plants : Strategically placed indoor plants are always inviting.

They bring a little bit of the outdoors in and create lush green organic shapes which is always nice on the eye.


Art choice:Earth without ART is just Eh!

By carefully choosing a few key pieces of appropriate art that compliment your space, this can add instant interest and edge to any property.  See our archived post on choosing artwork here.

The Kitchen:A simple stylish curated kitchen with just what your guests need

 A quality chopping board and a few beautiful serving dishes can make the world of difference to a guest when whipping up a storm in the kitchen with friends and family.


A portable set of speakers: keep the good times rolling

Whatever space your guests choose to chill out in the music can follow.  Add pieces like a bluetooth speaker or a record player complete with records by local bands.


These small choices can really affect the tactile and sensory experience a guest can have during a stay in your accommodation. 

These tips will make a huge difference in the way your property photographs and presents itself, making it more enticing online for guests to choose your property over others.
