Whether you’re renting your property long term, or short stay like Air BnB, renting out your property is a viable investment. But what should you consider when decorating and furnishing your property for rent? Here’s our advice on how to furnish a rental home to ensure the best quality and durability, even if your tenants don’t take care of it. The furnishings you choose can be make or break in a renting decision, it won’t matter the house is in the perfect location or how spacious the rooms, if the furnishings are stained and tired you will not get a tenant. You will need durable furnishings, as you don’t want to have to replace everything in between residents if they don’t take care of them.              

When Renting out your property long term the property must be practical and comfortable. You want it to be an inviting space that someone can consider a home. With a comfy sofa, your tenant can relax on after a long day. You also should consider whether kids or pets will live there as then the property needs to be family friendly. Light coloured, hard-to-clean fabrics such as suede or velvet are not ideal for a family sofa. Kids and pets can make a mess of sofas, spilling drinks or marking the fabric.
