The process of setting up an Airbnb space with little to no bookings can be a bit frustrating. More often than not, it leaves many Airbnb hosts wondering where they went wrong. Worse yet, getting a one-star after all that effort is enough to put many people off entirely. If you’re serious about your Airbnb venture and want to go from sometimes booked to always fully booked, the below five decor tips will help.
It might interest you to know that fireplaces are one of the hottest home decor trends. According to the National Association Of Realtors, fireplaces add more than 10 percent of value to a property. Also, for many Airbnb renters, the addition of a fireplace is usually a plus—a kind of luxury that appeals to their aesthetic side, making it a huge motivation for choosing a space. If you’re sold on this tip, companies like Stonewoods can help you install the best fireplaces without you breaking the bank.
The five senses of humans play a huge role in what we’re drawn to, so it’s no brainer that colors attract us. Because colors can influence people’s choices, carefully consider how you want your guests to feel when choosing your wall colors. While fluorescent tones and pastels are considered more youthful, grey is more warm and mature. Additionally, green is a calming color, and yellow stimulates and excites the mind.
For many Airbnb hosts, their walls’ overall look and color are given far too much attention, leaving little to no thought about the floors. To make a good first impression, it helps if the colors of your home are in sync to create a beautiful blend. From the walls and floors to the upholstery, an aesthetically pleasing home always draws attention. What’s more, the presence of beautiful centerpiece rugs also grabs the attention of many.
This next tip isn’t a metaphor. The phrase “breathe life” is meant in the literal sense. The best way to breathe life into a space and create a great first-time impression is to invest in plants. Plants add color to the home and give your space a fresh, open, outdoor feel. Besides, plants are an amazing source of oxygen. They help eliminate pollutants and can help reduce stress.
That being said, if you’d rather not spend time maintaining real-life plants, you can always opt for the synthetic, look-alike versions. They offer the same aesthetic feel without the natural effect of real plants.
As you work on the furniture, wall color, floor aesthetics, etc., it’ll interest you to know that little things can go a long way to make a good first impression. So apart from the usual, you can also decorate your space with little items like vases, paintings, artworks, and so on. They don’t have to be expensive, but they should tick the eye-catchy or exquisite box.
