How a well dressed room can give you the edge over your competition.
Customer expectations are higher these days, so the quality of your rooms needs to be able to meet these expectations. The quality of rooms in shared accommodation is also on the rise as more and more landlords look at ways to improve the appeal of their properties.
Plain walls are a good start. You can add colour by using soft furnishings such as cushions, throws and accessories to add a touch of luxury.
These little touches don’t have to break the bank either as you can even pick up good quality accessories from your local supermarket these days. Shops like TK Maxx and Dunelm offer a wide range of products at reasonable prices.
Make sure the beds are made properly with clean pressed linen and the room is clean and free from any forms of clutter.

What you’re ultimately aiming to achieve is to stop potential tenants scrolling past your rooms on SpareRoom and Gumtree etc, so dare to go bold, it’s so worth it!
The benefits of doing this are huge! You can attract better quality tenants, reduce your void periods and even increase your rents by as much 15%, now that’s surely worth spending a little bit of time and money in making your rooms look more appealing.
