Furnishing a Holiday Home During Off Peak Season

When we head off to our holiday destination, we want to feel like we are at a home away from home. The best way to do this is to keep your décor preferences in mind whilst thinking about climates and themes to make it the ultimate holiday home. It is a good idea to do your planning and furnishing after the holidays during the off peak season. When the holidays come around again, your holiday home will be ready for relaxation.

  • Beach House

Humidity is a common factor close to the beach. When decorating or furnishing a beach house you need to make sure that you don’t have iron or steel furniture as these metals rust quickly with the mixture of humidity and salt in the air.

Many people love the nautical theme which consists of a ship, lighthouse and anchor décor because it relates to the sea. If you are not a fan of these items you can be more subtle with different shades of blue and white. You will create a serene atmosphere with a holiday feeling.

  • Cabin in the Woods

There are different forms of camping. Some prefer to set up a tent and make fires amongst other campers whilst some would rather go out into the forest and set up their own secluded cabin to get away from the world.

The ideal furniture to have in a cabin would be wood. Wooden furniture has the strength needed to last and it has a homely finish. Keeping colours neutral will also relax your mind. Remember that sometimes bright colours and tones will continuously keep a person’s mind active.

  • House on the river or lake

These houses will need furniture that won’t rust too. The humidity might not be as strong or dense as that near the sea, but you will eventually notice your steel furniture rusting. Wood is an ideal material for the frames but expansion of it will also need to be considered. Gauzed doors and windows will also need to be installed because insects might enter your home such as mosquitoes.

  • Mountain loft

Wherever you are in the world, any mountain you visit will be cold and possibly experience snow. Wood is also the ideal material to have in these types of holiday homes. Wood insulates and retains warmth. Cushioning is also a good idea for warmth and decoration purposes. Add a blanket or two over the couch as a decorative piece that doubles as a cuddle blanket. Cushioned couches and blankets add that extra comfort to your own winter holiday resort.

To be comfortable in a place far away from home you should have comfortable furniture. Whether you furnish a living area with a lounge suite or separate couches, make sure that the end result is something that you will enjoy for years to come.
