If you want to increase your chances of renting out your property to students, here are four ways to turn a bog standard student house into a stylish abode.
Giant Garden Games
If your property has a garden, this will increase your chances of securing tenants alone, but there are a few extra touches that could make your house stand out from the hundreds of student digs on the market. Giant garden games like Jenga and chess can give your garden character and provide poor students with free ways to have fun without having to leave the house. You may not want to go to the expense of buying brand new garden games, especially after you have paid for furniture and other essentials, but you could find second hand garden games on eBay or even try your luck at a car boot sale.
Choosing modern décor is a must if you want it to appeal to students. You don’t have to spend a fortune on decorating a student house to make it look impressive. You can get great deals on student furniture packages from somewhere like Pre Let Furniture and create a unique space with a chalkboard wall. Unique features will make your student home desirable and it creates a sociable space that will help students that don’t know each other well the opportunity to bond. Students can use the chalkboard wall to note down lecture times as well as shopping lists and meal ideas.
Wall Mounted Desks
As a landlord, every bit of space is valuable and it is essential that you utilise the space you have to the best of your ability. Wall mounted desks are a great space saving idea that can turn a cramped room into a functional space. Give each student their own unique workspace with a wall mounted desk. You can even make these yourself with the help of a tutorial.
Deck the Halls
If you want to add a little style to your student abode, don’t forget to add a little seasonal charm. Christmas is coming and a little festive cheer will make your student property feel warm and welcoming. A Christmas wreath and a string of fairy lights are all you need to make homesick students feel comforted.
So, there you have it, four ways to turn a student home into a stylish abode.
