Dos And Don'ts Of Furnishing Your Vacation Home

People usually buy a vacation home as a place to get away from the stress of their daily lives. Such a second home represents many opportunities for décor and furnishings. Naturally, you want to buy luxury furniture to complement the value of your vacation property. From there, though, remember that the second home is supposed to be your own private retreat.

Keep reading for some dos and don't for furnishing your weekend home.

Do Look for Comfortable Furniture

The goal for your vacation home is to create a place for relaxation. So, as you're looking at furniture, focus on comfort. Your vacation home doesn't necessarily have to adhere to a décor style, so look more for pieces that inspire you to relax and laze the days away. When you get to the bedroom, you especially want a comfortable mattress and cozy linens.

Don't Choose Furniture That's Too Delicate

Many people use their vacation home as a base camp for outdoor activities. You may come inside after a biking or boating adventure and want to plop down on the sofa. So, avoid furniture that you would put in your adults-only sitting room at home. Look instead for attractive pieces made of durable fabrics and quality craftsmanship.

Do Use the Locale for Inspiration

Vacation homes are located in myriad places such as coasts, mountains, and lakes. When you plan your décor, use the locale as your inspiration. For example, if your vacation home is in the mountains, look for rustic furniture and mountain-inspired art. Indeed, you could upcycle an old pair of skis for the wall.

Don't Go Too Far With a Theme

On the flip side, designers say your décor shouldn't be too thematic. Your mountain cabin can be a ski lover's retreat. However, don't choose ski-related patterns for every single textile. The same goes for a beachside resort. You can start with a nautical theme; just intersperse some navy and red instead of choosing seaside prints.

Do Opt for Big Dining Furniture

Vacation homes are a popular spot for family get-togethers and other forms of entertaining. To that end, you want your dining furniture to be big enough to accommodate whatever kind of gathering comes up. Choose the largest table your dining room can fit.

Don't Forget About Dining Al Fresco

No matter the locale of your vacation home, you'll want to spend some time outside. You don't need a full outdoor kitchen, but look into a few grill station essentials. Likewise, choose sturdy outdoor dining furniture that doesn't need a lot of upkeep — you're not going to be around to maintain the pieces all the time.

Choose quality, comfortable furnishings and décor for your vacation home.
