Let’s take a look at what’s required in any great Airbnb. Many people choose Airbnb over hotels so they can relax in a comfortable home environment after spending their day running around the city or exploring everything your local area has to offer. They’re after spotless modern bathrooms, comfy sofas to relax on and a kitchen with everything they need to make basic meals. They like clean, uncluttered areas, so finding storage solutions that hide away any unattractive, but necessary items such as hairdryers, vacuum cleaner and/or extra linen is crucial. If there’s no space or budget for built-in units, there are some great cabinets on the market that can hide everything away but still look stylish. In fact, choose the right one and it can be a feature instead of an eyesore!
In styling these homes, we often recommend keeping wall colours neutral with perhaps one feature wall or a beautiful piece art. You can add texture and design features through accessories such as comfy cushions and throws. When choosing furniture, make sure it’s good quality and will withstand many years of use. Leather or patterned upholstery is best to stay looking good over a long period of time.
Having personal touches such as decorative pieces picked up from overseas are welcomed but clutter is not. Remove anything that doesn’t look beautiful or have a valuable function. Although real plants are always best, if you can’t be sure they’ll thrive in your home, then chose some realistic looking fake plants. They will be worth the investment.It's essential that your home photographs well as most to Airbnb guests choose their next stay based on what they see in your photos as well as guest reviews.
