As an Airbnb host, you have to make sure that your listing stands out from the crowd and attracts guests. To do this, you need to create an inviting space that will entice guests and make them want to book with you. Designing your Airbnb can be a daunting task, but with these Airbnb design tips, you can make sure that your listing pops and bookings begin to flow!
Invest in quality furniture and fixtures.
Quality furniture and fixtures will make your Airbnb look more luxurious and inviting. Invest in high-end, contract grade furniture that will last. Why contract grade specifically? Contract grade furniture is designed specifically for commercial use. It is made to meet the demands of high traffic areas and is tested for durability, fire retardancy, and other safety standards. West Elm offers contract grade furniture that you can get for a fraction of the cost through HostGPO. Not a member of HostGPO? Sign up today.
Use bright, vibrant colors.
Bright and vibrant colors will help make your vacation rental space look more inviting and cheerful. Use a variety of colors throughout the space, but make sure that they are complementary and don’t clash. Choose bright, bold colors for accent walls and furniture, and softer tones for the walls and other elements in the room. Use different shades of each color to create depth and contrast, and to draw the eye to certain areas of the room. Add plants, artwork, and other decorations to complete the look and to make the space even more inviting and cheerful.
Create an inviting atmosphere.
Make sure that your Airbnb has an inviting atmosphere. Use cozy, comfortable furniture and soft lighting to create a warm and inviting space. Add some plants, flowers, or artwork to make the space feel alive and inviting. West Elm and Pottery Barn have fantastic faux plant options! Check out this faux fig!
Add unique touches.
Add unique touches to your Airbnb that will make it stand out from the crowd. By adding unique artwork, furniture, or decorations you can easily make your space more interesting and inviting.
