One of the biggest challenges is finding the right lighting. Not only do you want to find lighting that is stylish and inviting, but you also need to find lighting that is functional and safe. With so many options on the market, it can be difficult to know where to start. However, by keeping a few key factors in mind, you can find th
e best lighting for your short-term rental.
First, consider the type of space you are working with. A bedroom will require different lighting than a kitchen or living room. Next, think about the mood you want to create. Do you want your guests to feel relaxed and comfortable, or do you want them to feel energized and excited? Finally, consider your budget. There is a wide range of lighting options available at all different price points. By taking the time to consider all of these factors, you can find the best lighting for your short-term rental.
Go with Smart Lighting
Hue lights are the way to go! With tons of colors and automation options, these LED bulbs will add a cool factor for your listing.

“I’m very happy with the Hue system so far although it is going to take some time to fully understand all of the ways it can be varied and used. I use mine together with the Apple HomeKit system, and the integration with HomeKit has been automatic and without difficulty. “ Phil of Magnolia, Amazon Hall of Fame
Add Lots of Lamps
Table lamps, floor lamps, and even string lights can help to brighten up a space and make it feel more inviting. Guests will appreciate the extra effort, and it will ultimately help you to attract more business.
"Having charging ports that are easily accessible is crucial! The easiest way to make sure these are available in each room and on each side of the bed is to use a lamp with USB connections already on it! This saves you the time and hassle of having to get extension cords and worrying about people stealing them." - Melissa of Beach Life Bliss
Choose sconces with a standard cord and plug that require no drilling or rewiring. If you want to hide the cords, wire them through your wall's molding in an easily accessible place for later painting if needed; otherwise just leave it exposed so they're not hidden from view by anything else on top of them!
