Aluminum Railing Might be the Key to Your Airbnb Renovation
Investment property isn't just for long-term rentals anymore. Thousands of people are turning their small-sized rental homes, guest houses, inherited homes, and unsold previous homes into Airbnb vacation rentals instead. These rentals are a fantastic way to turn a small home into a cozy hotel alternative for travelers and a great source of profit for savvy property owners.
Of course, to make a property commercial-guest-ready, most houses need a few upgrades. Most importantly, you need to ensure that each home is absolutely safe for guests, even guests who are elderly, handicapped, or who might do a little drinking on their vacations. When you need to provide quick, reliable, no-maintenance safety features to a home, aluminum railing is among your best possible options. From steep yards to decks and balconies, aluminum railing can ensure that your guests are safe without breaking the bank on a big home remodeling project. In other words, aluminum railings are the perfect addition to your Airbnb renovations.
Low-Cost and No-Maintenance
Aluminum railings are sleek, elegant, and incredibly basic. Powder-coated aluminum is both highly affordable and requires almost no maintenance except the occasional spray-down with a hose to chase away dust. They are easy to install, easy to maintain, and they add invaluable support for guests who may not be steady on their feet or might be at risk of falling.
Anywhere that is not already 100% safe can be made more safe with aluminum railings nearby and it won't eat up your entire redecoration and Airbnb furnishing budget to improve the safety of the home.
Handy for Everywhere a Guest House Needs Safety Railings
Aluminum railings are also incredibly versatile. They can be installed anywhere you need additional safety, even places where there wasn't a railing before. Aluminum railings can look great outdoors as a practical minimalist-style choice in safety decor. Used indoors, they look sleek and modern, while making the home look larger because they take up practically no space, unlike bulky banisters.
Increase Your Airbnb Listing's Accessibility Rating
When you add aluminum railings in the right places, you can also advertise as being more accessible and handicap-friendly than the home was originally. With railings to help with any little steps inside and outside the home, elderly and handicapped guests will be more likely able to get around and truly enjoy the vacation space you are setting up.
Make a Steep Front Walk More Inviting
Not all front yards are made even. Many are steep, rocky, unlevel, and otherwise challenging to navigate, especially for someone with mobility or balance limitations. That is why you see the occasional strategic set of stone steps paired with a modest aluminum railing in the front yards of some homes. This style could work exceedingly well for you, with or without the steps. Any place where guests usually tread and the ground is not level, a short section of aluminum railing can make all the difference. Or you can even create a wrap-around path from the driveway to the front door with one side entirely lined with railing to guide guests safely to the front door.
Replace Wobbly Wooden Railing on Porches and Decks
If your Airbnb home has a deck, porch, or balcony, then check the railing carefully. If it is wood and wobbles, that means the wood is rotting or wearing away and eventually, the railing will not be safe. If it is iron and rusts or chips, that is similarly bad news, plus a danger just to the hands of your guests with chipping flecks of paint and rust.
Replacing these old railings with new powder-coated aluminum railing is an excellent way to ensure that your guests are safe and have something absolutely secure to lean on or rely on against a fall. Decks, porches, and balconies all benefit from newly installed aluminum railing for both safety and style.
Ensure Outdoor (and Indoor) Stairs are Safe and Navigable
If you have stairways, aluminum railing is a great addition here, too. Whether you are replacing old railing or even installing railing on a precarious stairway for the first time, your guests will appreciate not just the sturdy handrail but also the thoughtfulness of making all your railing match. You can even use aluminum railing for indoor stairs, as it will be seen as sleek and modern.
