How Sliding Doors Improve Rental Properties like Airbnb, Vrbo, Homeaway and more

If you’re one of the lucky hosts with property on a site or app for rent, congratulations. Over the past 12 years, home sharing has taken off and people love staying at vacation rentals as a hotel alternative. You might have bought a turnkey property, but if not, we’re here for you. We want you to maximize your listing and offer the amenities that will get you the coveted top host spots. Here are some suggestions to enhance your guest experience. 

Set a Great Foundation

Your listing, pricing and strategy should all be clearly outlined and defined. Be sure you’re following rules and regulations, understand terms and conditions, be insured, and ask for help. Plan for highs and lows, and observe seasonality. 

Stand Out

There are over 6 million listings and 4 million hosts worldwide. Standing out during the endless scroll is a must if you want to ensure that your listing will be seen, and more importantly, booked. Starting with aesthetically pleasing designs, and open space that matches interior trends will have potential renters flocking to your home, but that’s not all. Making a great first impression, paying attention to details, and providing guests with what they want will help you become a more successful host in the long run.

This recent installation in Atlanta for an Airbnb property highlights the array of options you have working with us, and how The Sliding Door Company can rethink spaces and uniquely design solutions for creative properties.

Safe, Secure Property Features

You can make your property your own with the options that make your doors just right for your space, and that will open up your property to an endless amount of guests and more room for activities. When visitors are staying at your rental properties, they will have the assurance of safe, secure glass doors with patented locks and handles.

Select a Product and Start Customizing

Choose from our room dividers, closet doors, wall slide doors, or swing doors, or try them each out in your space. You are able to input your project-specific information or come up with new interior design ideas on the spot, and as you enhance the customization you can get a great feel for how the product will work in your space. The ways to customize include setting your dimensions and number of panels, and selecting from our wide array of frame finishes, divider designs and glass opacities. 

In our design program, you can shift certain features to better understand how each of these products will look in your home. With multiple different options to style this image, you can alter the design program to reflect your home. You can adjust the room type, edit the wall colors, and adjust your floor type in order to gain the best idea of what your next installation will look like. 

Upload a Photo to Visualize the Design in Your Space 

Once you are satisfied with your design, you can then actually preview it in your own space. (This is an optional step, so if you don’t have a photo to upload, you can skip it!) Take a photo of the area or room where you’d like the dividers or doors installed, and click on “Visualize it in your space” to upload it right there within the tool. Drag the four points of the doors or dividers until you approve of the placement, and then you can save the photo by downloading it or emailing it to yourself.

The future of Commercial Interior Design Trends

It’s not just our passion for our products that keep us on track with upcoming trends in the interior design world. It is also our love for functionality within each design. With help from our friends at Industville, The Sliding Door Company is looking ahead to 2023 for the interior design trends we will see – and how we can help!

Utilizing every inch of space you have in your office is a must. 

The minimalist feeling that comes from an open floor plan is unmatched but today’s employees still want sectioned-off areas for meetings, phone calls, and general privacy. All of our products, from our glass doors to our cubicle wall options are made not only custom to your space but with style and functionality at the forefront.

Make the Return to Work Comfortable

While it used to be ping pong tables that brought excited employees to your team, now they seek comfort and luxury they didn’t get at home. For eight hours a day, workers don’t need to work in smaller, closet-like spaces less functional than their own dining room. In 2023, office spaces will be renovated to become tailored for employees. In order to allow the whole office to feel open and integrated, the Sliding Door Company’s room dividers are the perfect solution. Many jobs require coworking, and we strive to make sure each result is comfortable.

Give Them Natural Light

Our glass ensures natural lighting is a part of every office. Your employees work better while they soak up Vitamin D throughout the day at the desk or while relaxing in the employee lounge. In 2023, this already growing trend will flourish as more people turn to natural light to get them through the day.

Lock it up

Sliding doors are becoming a staple in areas that want an open feel but can be turned into private and secure spaces. With our locks and handles that are designed and built with safety in mind, you can feel comfortable knowing that you have all the space you need without risking security. 

Sliding doors are changing the future of how we work. The demand for spaces that are versatile and fit our changing needs is only growing. No matter what you are looking for in your office space we can work together to bring your dream to fruition.
