Portland has become quite the tourist destination. Our number of international visitors has been increasing exponentially every year, and there are thousands of Portland homeowners cashing in on this new touristy phenomenon by fashioning their homes— vacation or otherwise—into short-term rental properties. Creating spaces that appeal to Portland visitors is easy if you employ these few design tips, including the best window treatments for your home.
Portland is synonymous with the outdoors. From Forest Park to Mt Tabor, we love green spaces. Extend this ethos into your rental home with bamboo shades or wood grain plantation shutters. Explore lighter wood grains to open up a space, or darker hues for a more austere result.
The views we enjoy (when the weather isn’t heavy and grey) are world renowned. The snowy peak of Mt Hood or the glittering swells of the Willamette River, these are to-die-for views. If your rental home boasts one of Portland’s legendary views, frame it with dramatically draped curtains and a swag valance for extra theatrics.
In homes that welcome small children, consider cordless cellular shades. These remarkable shades diffuse and disperse light in an almost ethereal way, giving a whimsical sophistication to any window they grace.
