Furnishing a rental in Florida generally means trying to tie in to the scenic, subtropical environment. So, many people opt to go with themes that bring the beach or water inside.

Tips for furnishing a rental home in Florida may or may not differ from other parts of the country, depending on where the property is located. Although Florida has hundreds of miles of coastline and a plethora of beaches, parts of the state are rural, reminiscent of the South or even midwest. However, if you're going for a quintessential Florida feel, you can use the following tips for furnishing a rental property in the Sunshine State. For instance, some people prefer a kind of liveaboard sailboat look, with nautical decorations including art depicting sailing across the seas.

Others go for a more beachy vibe, incorporating blues and greens with white, and furnishings that provide a cabana feel. Still, others go for a type of combination but still theme the overall decor in a beach and marine experience. Regardless, there are some rules of thumb to follow when furnishing a Florida rental property, like the following:
  1. Choose durable flooring. Forgo carpet because this not only easily stains, but where's overtime and really doesn't go with Florida's overall tropical environment. Instead, laminate flooring or tile is preferable, because it stays cooler in the summer, is easier to clean, and is very long-lasting.
  2. Choose multi-function furniture. Rather than cram a bunch of pieces into the living room and dining area, go with a more minimal approach. But, you can also make it a great deal more functional by using furniture with more than one purpose. For example, an ottoman that has storage inside. Or, a couch that folds out into a sleeper.
  3. Choose light and neutral colors. Skip dark colors, particularly in the bathrooms and kitchen. It's also a good idea to avoid dark colors in the bedrooms and other areas of the house as well. Leverage the sunlight for all its worth by painting with light and neutral colors and installing light and neutral window treatments that capitalize on the sunshine coming from outside.

Lastly, be sure to keep the theming consistent throughout the interior. Avoid the temptation to diverge into different types of decor that diverge away from the main, central theme. This will provide a consistent look and feel which makes the property far more attractive and livable.
