Remodeling Your Rental

With the summer vacation season over, now is the time to make updates to your vacation rental property. As with permanent homes, kitchens will get you the most bang for your buck in your remodel. If the kitchen cabinets in your rental property are damaged, arranged poorly, or simply outdated, replacing them will go a long way in sprucing up your property and keeping it consistently rented. You may even be able to increase your rental price!

Choose durable cabinet materials. While it may be tempting to take the less expensive route, long-lasting cabinetry will serve you better in a rental property. Choose solid wood or plywood cabinets for a high-quality look that is durable and easy to clean. Cabinets made of MDF are susceptible to water damage, something you can’t always control in a rental property.

Make quality construction a must-have. In addition to the cabinet material, pay close attention to how the cabinet is constructed. Cabinets with dovetail joints, real wood drawers, steel adjustable hinges, and undermount drawer glides are likely to last you many seasons in your rental.

Go for extra-tall cabinets. Take your cabinetry all the way to the ceiling in your vacation rental property. Not only will it provide additional space for storage, but it will also prevent dust from collecting on the top of the cabinets, giving you one less place to clean.

Keep it classic. To make the kitchen in your rental property attractive for years to come, choose a classic cabinet door, like a shaker style. Cabinet drawer pulls and knobs should also remain fairly basic; avoid decorative hardware trends that may be short-lived.

Install more drawers. It can be easy for kitchen items to get lost in large cabinets, so consider installing drawers instead. Your renters will be able to locate items more easily and return them to the correct place.
