Holiday Lets: 5 Interior Design Tips for Newbies

Living Room

The interior design of your holiday let is key to ensuring guests have a positive experience. But it can be hard to know where to start. A holiday let needs to feel personal, like a home away from home. So here are five tips for nailing your holiday let’s interior design.

1. Colour scheme 

Keep things simple. Light colours can make small rooms feel bigger, dark rooms can feel cosier and sophisticated. Have a think about colour theory – how do you want guests at your holiday let to feel?

According to Pantone, the 2021 colour trend is for cool, dependable grey, and vibrant, cheerful yellow. Speaking of trends, an accent wall can be an affordable great way of bringing life to an otherwise simple room. But don’t over complicate your colour scheme! It’s best to stick to 2-3 complementary colours.

2. Curtains 

Don’t overlook the window dressing in your interior design theme. If you have a small window, setting curtains further back can make the window feel wider and the room brighter. Your holiday let can be much improved by pretty curtains that keep the sun out, so your guests can have the lie in they deserve. Restful sleep encourages return visitors, after all.

3. Mirrors 

Having a big mirror can let more light into a room, make the room feel bigger, and is just generally useful for checking your outfit! A bigger, brighter room helps with mental health, as well as just making things feel that bit more expensive.

4. Sockets 

You need a socket near the mirror. This is something a lot of people forget about, but it can be frustrating not to be able to see what you’re doing while styling your hair. Another big must have – a wall socket by the bed. We’ve all gone on holiday and wanted to use our phone before bed, but not been able to because it’s charging by the opposite wall. A good tip is to install a combination USB and plug socket.

5. Bedding

You really cannot underestimate what good bedding can do for your guests sleep experience. Higher quality duvet sets last longer, and feel nicer – making a room feel more luxurious without trying too hard with your interior design.

White bedding is a classic hotel staple for a reason. It looks fresh, and is easy to clean or replace. Clean lines add a simple elegance to any room, while coloured cushions and throws can bring in different shades, extra textures and more depth. Having spare blankets in the same colour scheme in the wardrobe is a fun touch that will make your guests feel more at home.
