Hints & Tips For Furnishing Your Holiday Home

So, you have bought your dream holiday home in the sun! Now comes the exciting part, you need to furnish it to create a comfortable environment for you and your guests.

You could transport furniture you already own, or buy in your home country and ship to Portugal, but to buy furnishings via local stores or suppliers is more economical. The Algarve now has a great range of furniture suppliers and furniture stores, so the choice is good.

 

Things to consider if you are going to select furnishings yourself are:

 

1. The lifestyle in Portugal may be different from your home country, with more time being spent outdoors than when you are at home. So, items like sun loungers and outdoor furniture are more important. 

 

2. Opt for good quality furniture - but don't go over the top. You need things to be practical and durable, easy to clean and maintain. 

 

3. Try not to buy everything from one store. Select a few one-of pieces to show a bit of your personality, and add some local touches. It will make your holiday home feel less like a furniture shop window and more like a 'home'.

 

4. Don’t forget the little necessities such as ironing board, washing line, dustpan & brush etc. 

 

There is a lot to think about when furnishing a home from a blank canvas, so we have prepared a list of suggested items to get you started! You can download it below.

 

If you find the task of furnishing a whole house or apartment daunting, why not consider enrolling the help of an expert? They will discuss your tastes, your budget and potentially what you will be using the property for, whether it's for your personal use or as a rental investment or both. They can advise on quantities of linen and crockery etc, and will create a bespoke package suited perfectly to you AND your property.

They even deliver and assemble everything free of charge, so that the next time you visit you won’t have to lift a finger!
