Furnishing an Airbnb

A visually attractive space is a major way to increase bookings.

Decide Budget and Theme

While budget and market research is outside the scope of this article. You will want to check out your competition in your market, and some of the best listings you can find on Airbnb to see what they look like. Then back into what you want your space to look like.

It is important to start with a direction/theme because purchasing this many items inconsistently will not lead to a design that catches the eye of people scrolling through the listings on Airbnb.

Find Major Items First

I recommend starting with finding a sofa, bed frames, nightstands, dining room table and chairs first. Coordinate each bedroom to have a similar style. I like to keep the bedrooms different because purchasing 3 identical bedroom sets does not look that fun and interesting in a set of photos.

This is probably the hardest part for me. My actual house does not have a whole lot of decor, or if it does its mostly sentimental items.

Finding decor

I purchased all of these on Amazon. I have seen recommendations to try discount stores like TJ Max. The way they contract manufacture some of their stuff under labels makes me nervous.
