Get Your Holiday Home In Tip Top Shape With These Tips

Friday, September 25, 2015

If, like me, you are somewhat of a traveler, you may not be happy with having just one home. Imagine being able to go on holiday whenever you wanted without having to worry about the cost of accommodation. Wouldn't that be amazing?

I don’t know about you, but I constantly, have itchy feet and hate staying in one place for too long. For me, having a holiday home somewhere exotic, like Spain, Australia, Greece or at least somewhere here in Sweden would be a dream come true.

The only downside to buying a property to transform into a holiday home would be the workload - there would be a lot to do. It's very rare to find a property that needs little or no work doing, when it comes to buying a second home. While I am a real DIY and decorating lover, like most people, I would struggle to find the time to get everything done.

However, if you have just bought a holiday home that's need of repair, there's no need to panic. As there are plenty of ways that you can make doing it up much easier for yourself.

Hire a skip

The chances are that any property you buy as a holiday home will need some work to get it how you want it. As you will probably have lots of rubbish and decorating debris to get rid of, it makes sense to hire a skip. This will make things easier and quicker, as you won’t have to keep driving back and forth to the dump. Instead, you can just throw it into a skip and then the company you hired it from will take it away.

The only downside is the cost - skip hire can be expensive. However, if you have bought a property near somewhere that offers mini skip hire, this could be a good alternative. The skip that you get is smaller, but also much cheaper. If you have bought a property in Perth in Australia, for example, you could contact a local skip bin hire company there.

Spruce it up

The amount that you can do to your holiday home, in terms of decor, will depend on how large your budget is. As you will only be spending a small amount of time there, the decor doesn’t have to be as perfect as your own home. However, you most probably, still want to make the place stylish and personal.

All it takes to spruce up your holiday home is a lick of paint, some new flooring, and a few pieces of elegant furniture. For example, by painting the living room white, swapping the old carpets for laminate and adding a stylish sofa, you can transform the space. If you want to add personality, all you need to do is add a few well thought out accessories.

Get help from the professionals

If you don’t have the time to spend perfecting your new holiday home yourself, hire someone to do it for you. Yes, hiring decorators and flooring fitters won’t come cheap. But if you want to get your holiday home ready to use as quickly as possible, it could be necessary.

If you are lucky enough to have a holiday home, I therefore envy you. *wink*  On a serious note, take the time to get it into good shape. If you want to make the most of your second home, decorating it in a way that makes you want to spend time there is important.
