One of the most memorable amenities you can offer your guests during their stay in your rental are the linens and bedding. This is also one of the biggest complaints that guests have after their stay in an otherwise amazing vacation home. Selecting bedding and linens for your vacation rental can be a tricky task. But Short Term Housingis here to help you pick out the very best (and most affordable) bedding and linens for your guests.
Choosing The Best Sheets
Cotton Sheets Cotton Fabric typically has a lustrous smooth surface and a softer feel. Cotton sheets also tend to have more color options available and are usually easier to care for than other materials.
Flannel Sheets Flannel sheets are very cozy and affordable. However they have a tendency to not last as long as other materials.
Knit Sheets Flannel Sheets are typically a very comfortable, warm, soft, and cozy way to go. These sheets are usually best suited for colder months.
Bamboo Sheets Bamboo fabrics are usually made from pure bamboo fiber yarns which provide great strength and durability over time, a soft and comfortable feel, and are asthetically pleasing.
Choosing The Best Comforters/ Duvets
The topmost priority when buying a Duvet/Comforter is understanding the properties of different fillings and matching them to your needs. Let’s take a look at some common fillings:
Natural Feather Fillings These are light, soft, warm, and comfortable with a resilience that results in a longer lifespan.
Combinations of Natural Fillings These create a duvet with all-round benefits.
Synthetic Fillings These are a good alternative to natural ones, especially if your guests are allergic to feathers or if you will need to wash your duvet frequently (which you will)
Since bedding and linens are among the top complaints of vacation rental guests be sure to;
- Wash and Change the Sheets, Towels, And Bedding After Your Guests Leave
