Kick back and grab a lemonade — summer’s right around the corner, which means more sun and more bookings. We’re celebrating with some projects that will help you get your home ready for those extra guests, from budget-friendly decorating trends to easy cleaning hacks.
DEEP CLEAN YOUR HOME
Sure, you clean between guests — but when’s the last time someone deep cleaned your home (including things like decluttering and power washing)? These tips will help you take the stress out of sprucing.
MAKE YOUR OWN WALL ART
Turning that blank wall into an art gallery that shows off your style is a great way to decorate on a budget. This article is full of all the inspiration you need to get started. Evolve tip: Theme your gallery wall based on your surroundings. If your rental is near the beach, choose soft palettes and water scenes, and if you’re in an urban loft, go for moody shots of the skyline or nearby attractions.
GIVE YOUR SMALL BACKYARD A BIG IMPACT
Come summer, guests love to spend time under the stars — and if your property has a backyard, they’re going to want to enjoy it. Here’s a roundup that will help you transform a small outdoor space into a private oasis.
UPDATE YOUR WELCOME GUIDE
You know that local delivery spot you love? Guests want to know about it, too. Now’s a great time to refresh your welcome guide with personal recommendations, new attractions, and seasonal festivals. Don’t worry about the formatting — our free welcome guide template will do that part for you. We’ve also got free checklists for cleaning, pre-stay, and post-stay — and you can find them right here.
It’s almost the season to set your stress aside and enjoy more R&R. If you’re looking to free up your schedule, take the difficult parts of vacation rental off your plate, and book more nights, see if your home qualifies for Evolve.
