Give Your Holiday Home A Flooring Facelift
Which Flooring Is Best For Your Holiday Home and Why?
Whether you’re thinking about giving your Airbnb listing a fresh new look before the season starts or planning to get your second home summer-ready, we’ve got the right flooring for every type of home facelift. Take a look at our top four reasons why you should upgrade your flooring, and which flooring is best for your holiday home.
1. Easy Cleaning and Less Maintaining
Take a look at any listing on Airbnb and one of the first things a guest is likely to complain about is how clean (or, not) the property is. Make the mistake of letting the cleanliness of your property slip and it only takes a small number of unhappy guests to cause your property rating to plummet and leave your holiday home’s reputation on life-support. We know that it’s almost impossible to make everyone happy and keeping a property spotless can be time consuming and cut into your profits. But replacing tired and old flooring with a modern vinyl floor solution might just be the answer.
Designed for easy cleaning and resistant to stains and spills, vinyl flooring is our number one recommendation for the best flooring for your holiday home. Many of our vinyl flooring options are designed to be resistant to spills and stains and very quick and easy to clean. They’re also water resistant and can be cleaned with a variety of different floor cleaning products without worrying about colour–fading or needing to re-wax or polish.
2. Hygiene First For Peace of Mind
Some of your potential holiday home renters might be booking their first holiday in more than a year, and a healthy, hygienic property is top of their list when choosing where to stay. In some older holiday homes, a steady stream of visitors have left their mark not only in the guestbook, but also on the flooring. Unfortunately, in many properties no amount of cleaning will give your flooring that fresh and new feel that potential guests are looking for. Installing new flooring, like laminate or luxury vinyl tiles, can provide some peace of mind for guests concerned about surfaces that might be a hiding place of viruses and germs.
3. Tough Enough For A Full Calendar
After a hard twelve months, holiday-home owners and Airbnb hosts are hoping for a bumper summer. But can your house handle a fully booked calendar? Replacing the flooring in high-traffic areas, like passageways and entranceways, as well as in kitchens or dining rooms that are prone to mess, can help guests relax and reduce the need for mid-season repairs and deep cleaning. Vinyl flooring can handle heavy foot traffic, excited kids, and even exuberant dinner parties.
4. Get The Look For Less
Whether you’ve got a little place by the seaside or a country cottage, getting the right flooring to match the style and vibe of your Airbnb rental is very important. A lot of potential guests are going to make a decision based on the photos on your listing, and flooring that is dated and dingy is going to make people carry on scrolling. With LVT (luxury vinyl tiles) and engineered wooden flooring you can get the look you want, for less. Cutting edge technology gives our range of engineered wooden flooring a look and feel that is almost indistinguishable from hardwood flooring, but without the hefty price point. For the look of wood, stone, or something else the range of designs and styles on offer with LVT brands like Karndean and Amtico give you almost endless possibilities for a flooring facelift. Best of all we stock a range of flooring solutions that are not only the best choice for your holiday home, but they’re also DIY friendly.
