With its gorgeous beaches, iconic amusement parks, and host of other attractions, it is no secret that Florida is one of the tourism hotspots of the United States. Because of that, it should come as no surprise that Florida leads the nation in Airbnb listings. With so much competition, finding ways to make your Airbnb stand out is essential to success. These design tips and tricks for your Airbnb can help.
Play With Light
You want your Airbnb to feel welcoming to guests, and one of the easiest ways to make a space feel inviting is having plenty of light. While you can’t always control the size or number of your windows, you can maximize light with your window treatments. Sheer drapes will let in more light than opaque ones. You can also make the room feel brighter by using light-colored paints and furniture. Putting up wall mirrors is another Airbnb design trick that will not only maximize light but make the room feel bigger.
Make It Fit for Sleep
Vacations are about fun, but the main purpose of the house is to have a place to rest at the end of the day. If you haven’t designed bedrooms ideal for sleep, then you may end up with some cranky guests. Make sure you choose quality linens and consider using the old hotel trick of “triple sheeting.” Put down a base sheet, a heavier blanket, and another sheet on top. And make sure you add blackout curtains to the bedrooms as well, especially if you’re in a busy area.
Embrace Your Quirks
When you’re decorating a house to sell, the goal is to make it look appealing but innocuous. With Airbnbs, you should embrace the things that make the location unique. Display bold artwork and highlight a patterned accent wall. You could also take go the extra mile by choosing a theme. For instance, if your location is close to one of the parks, consider doing a Disney or Harry Potter theme. For coastal locations, embrace nautical elements. Your guests are there to have fun. Maximize their joy with a great design.
