How to Renovate Your Home for the Upcoming Holiday Season

The holiday season is drawing closer, and thankfully, most countries are starting to ease their travel restrictions. This means that for the first time since 2019, people can take summer vacation trips and escape the grind of their daily lives. If you own a home in Europe’s favorite holiday spots, you need to start preparing for the summer season. 

Here are some renovation ideas you can adopt to make your home ready for the upcoming holidays: 

Improve your curb appeal 

Since it’s the first part of your house anyone will see, it makes sense to start your renovation from the exterior. If your house looks in perfect condition from the outside, you can attract more potential tenants and command higher rents. Start with general outdoor cleaning, apply a fresh coat of paint, and do some work on your roof. You may also consider getting a new front door to shore up security and further improve your exterior’s outlook. 

Install a new flooring system

Next, get a new flooring system for the entire house. Nothing says affluence like luxury vinyl flooring. The material lets you recreate the natural look of wood and stone without the associated installation and maintenance costs. The best vinyl flooring systems are scratch and water-resistant, and they come with sound and temperature insulation. Vinyl floors can last for more than 10 years before you need to reapply a new coat, and it’s one of the best investments you can ever make in your home. 

Get a bathroom remodel

Consider this: a prospective tenant is inspecting your home. They love the exterior and how you’ve designed the living area. The flooring has them smiling in admiration and they’re already dreaming about vacationing in your home. Where is the next place they’ll check before deciding to rent? The bathroom, of course. So, if your bathroom is not in tiptop shape, you need a bathroom remodel immediately. 

Fix up your kitchen

The kitchen is the focal point of many homes. It’s a place where people sit down and enjoy the company of their loved ones. So, you have to make sure it’s welcoming. Since you’ve spent a lot of money on renovating your home, you may be reluctant to commit to a complete kitchen refurbishment. However, some minor fixes can still have a big impact. Repaint your cabinets, get new countertops, and install some energy-efficient appliances. If you want to take things even further, you could install a minibar that residents can just gather around to relax. 

Final note

The best part about renovating your home now is that you won’t need large-scale home improvement again for the next 5 to 6 years. So, you get to enjoy the benefits of your investment for the next 5 years, at least. In that period, you may even have recouped your investment and made some profit.
