Wondering about the cost involved to furnish your vacation rental? If so, you’re not alone; it can be tough in many situations to know exactly what level of financial commitment to expect. For obvious reasons, you don't want to skimp on your furniture or decor to the point that it hurts your customers’ experience. On the other hand, you don't want to overspend either.
We find that people tend to underestimate what furnishing their house will cost when they're buying their first vacation rental and furnishing it Turn-Key. We furnish our personal homes over months and years. A vacation home is normally furnished over a matter of weeks.
How much does it cost to furnish a house?
Especially for a luxury vacation rental, it’s not uncommon to spend $25,000 to $100,000 and more to furnish the house, although your results may vary. Let's take a closer look at what factors will affect the cost.
Time is a Factor for Furnishing a Vacation Rental
The biggest mistake we see vacation home buyers make is waiting till the very last minute to decide on their vacation home furnishings.

The Size of Your Luxury Vacation Home Matters
The cost to furnish a house can vary greatly depending on the size of your home. For instance, more bedrooms mean more up-front costs – i.e. more furniture. The same goes for bathrooms, dens, and sitting rooms. Supplying quality linens, towels, and other necessities is key in providing your renter with a comfortable home. The good news is that you’ll be able to charge more for a larger, well-furnished home once you start renting it out.
The cost to furnish a 2000 sq ft house will be considerably different compared to a dwelling that's larger or smaller. We can provide complete Turn-Key - pricing for 1 thru 5 bedroom condos and townhomes as well as 3 bedroom through 14 bedroom single family homes.
A Luxury Interior Means Higher Rental Income
It's important to remember that you're not renting out a cabin in the mountains somewhere. People are spending more because they're specifically looking for a better, more luxurious experience in the number one vacation destination in the World.. To that end, you'll likely be spending more initially than the standard rental to create a luxury interior. What exactly is “luxury” in the minds of your customers? This can be a tough question to answer for some luxury vacation rental owners, especially those new to the game because “luxury” is somewhat subjective. This is another reason vacation rental owners reach out to us for help.
