Affordable Window Coverings For Your Vacation Rental

Taking care of your vacation rental is a little different than taking care of your home. Since you don’t live in your rental on a daily basis, you can express your inner designer in different ways, which is always exciting! But, keep this in mind: you want make sure you choose durable, inviting, and cost effective items. This rule applies to your window treatments as well.

No matter if your vacation home is in Everett, Snohomish or Mill Creek, Washington, or somewhere completely outside the Pacific Northwest - we have some of the best window treatments options for you. Stay within budget with minimal upkeep, while creating an inviting, comfortable vacation rental, with these window treatments.

Faux Wood Blinds

Faux Wood Blinds are one of the best options out there, especially for rental homes. Not only are they affordable, they are also extremely durable (major plus, since you can never be 100% certain the type of people you’ll housing). Regardless if the vacation home is in a cool or warm climate, these blinds are energy efficient and block harmful UV rays, preventing damage to any surrounding furnishings. Plus, they provide that classic look that never goes out of style.

Mini Blinds

When you hear the words “mini blinds”, you probably envision the typical small white slats. However, mini blinds have been modernized! Now, they come available in a wide assortment of colors and textures, which add personality and style to any room. Created to fit any shape of window, these little blinds are very user friendly. Color coordinate them with your vacation theme, and you have an inexpensive, quick, easy window treatment that will last through countless tenants.

Vertical Blinds

Many vacation rental homes have at least one set of sliding glass doors. These doors may open up to a porch, a balcony with a view, a pool or hottub, or maybe even a path down to the beach. Normally, this means they are used frequently - which is important to note when choosing an efficient window treatment. Luckily, vertical blinds are perfect for the job. Durable enough to withstand heavy use and humidity - these blinds are multi weather purposed and easy to clean. When your tenants come for a visit, they will have their options of letting in as much natural light as they want, while still promising privacy when needed. Vertical blinds also come in a wide variety of colors and materials, giving the vacation home a contemporary look.

Roller Shades

These shades are a solid investment into your vacation rental since they will last long and never go out of style.

Pro Tips: Try These Small Changes For A Big Difference  

  •  Add dimmer switches to every room for your lighting. This will allow vacationers to create different experiences in one place.
  •  Furnish in soft color tones to make the space feel homier and inviting. Keep the color schemes similar throughout the house. Lighter colors tend to make the space feel roomier and soothing - which is perfect for someone on vacation.
  •  Rugs are a great way to add color and texture to the room, and are much more easily cleaned and replaceable than carpet.
