short let homes

It’s important to make it feel like home when staying in a short let, whether for a few days or weeks. A short let can sometimes feel impersonal or temporary, but with a few tips and tricks, you can transform it into a comfortable, cozy space that feels like yours. In this blog post, we will share eight tips for making a short let feel like home so you can fully enjoy your stay at Temmyobis Residence. From personalizing the space to creating a relaxing environment, these tips will help you settle in and feel at ease during your time away from home.

1. Bring your Bedding and Pillows

One of the easiest ways to make a short let feel like home is to bring your bedding and pillows. This will not only help you sleep better, but it will also add a touch of your style to the space. Packing a cozy throw blanket to snuggle up on chilly nights is also a good idea.

2. Make sure your short-Let rental covers your basics

You’re right. It’s important to prioritize your needs and preferences when looking for a short-term rental. If certain amenities like an in-unit washer and dryer or garage parking are important to you, it’s worth seeking a rental with those features. This will ensure you feel comfortable and satisfied during your stay rather than constantly feeling like something is missing. At Temmyobis Residence, we offer a wide range of amenities to make your stay as comfortable as possible so you can feel at home from day one.

3. If you don't need it, don't unpack it

I don’t usually recommend living with unpacked boxes, but you could save time if you pack them up again in a few months. Even after storing numerous boxes outside of our home, my husband and I still found ourselves with unnecessary items. As a solution, we created a dedicated corner in our front hall filled with still-packed suitcases and a couple of unopened boxes. Although it’s not an ideal setup, it’s comforting to know that we have fewer things to worry about when it’s time to pack up again.

4. Invest in some quality kitchenware

If you plan to cook during your stay, it’s worth investing in quality kitchenware. This will not only make your time in the kitchen more enjoyable, but it will also help you feel more at home. Consider bringing your favorite cooking utensils, knives, pots, and pans.

5. Create a cozy seating area

Whether watching TV or reading a book, having a cozy seating area is essential for making a short let feel like home. Invest in a comfortable chair or sofa, add some plush throw pillows, and remember to include a side table for your drinks and snacks.

6. Set the mood with lighting

Lighting can have a big impact on the overall ambiance of a space. Consider bringing lamps or string lights to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. You can also use candles or diffusers to add relaxing scents to the space.

7. Get organized

Living out of a suitcase can be stressful, so it’s important to get organized during your stay. Invest in packing cubes or organizers to tidy your clothes and belongings. You can also create a designated workspace if you need to work from home during your stay.

8. Create a relaxing environment

Lastly, creating a relaxing environment is key for making a short letter feel like home. Set up a yoga mat or meditation cushion, create a soothing playlist, and remember to take some time to unwind and relax during your stay.

In conclusion, making a short let’s feel like home can be easy and inexpensive. Following these eight tips, you can transform any space into a comfortable and cozy sanctuary that feels like yours. Whether you’re staying for a few days or weeks, creating a home away from home will help you fully enjoy your stay at Temmyobis Residence.
