If you are new to owning a vacation home along the Jersey Shore, or are looking to rent your current vacation home, then you may find yourself overwhelmed. Keep in mind that when the time comes and you decide to take that leap into the vacation rental market, you will need to furnish your home. Here are a few tips on furnishing your Jersey Shore vacation home on a dime.
Sofas– Invest in sofa slipcovers for your furniture. We are not talking about the ones you saw at your grandmother’s house; today’s modern slipcovers can transform an ordinary couch into a sleek new modern piece of furniture.
Flooring- Adding a new trendy rug is a great cost-effective way to add style to your vacation home. Big box stores such as IKEA and Target offer a good variety of rugs at an affordable price. A well-made rug can easily be steam-cleaned if dirtied by renters.
Lighting- Make your vacation home stand out with a state of the art lamp. Nearly all lamps and sconces on the market today are set to accommodate fluorescent bulbs, which will provide you even more savings.
Kitchen Furnishings– Those using your home to vacation at will expect a kitchen that is stocked with all the utensils they need for preparing, serving, and eating meals. Stock your kitchen with at least enough place settings for 8 visitors, if not more. Ikea, Bed Bath and Beyond, Crate and Barrel, and Target are great stores to purchase kitchenware to accommodate your vacation home.
