As an Airbnb host/hostess you want every furniture piece and décor accent to give you the most value for money while looking the part and offering the comfort and functionality you want for your guests.

1. Choose the right sofa for your space

You want your guests to enjoy every moment that they spend at your Airbnb so much that they come back again and spread the word. So we highly suggest looking into getting a sofa that offers your guests ultimate comfort, a great experience and functionality.

For instance, an L-shape is a great way to get extra seating and the chaise section acts as a daybed which is great for relaxing and your guests will love it. Like the Farnham 3-Seater L-shape sofa, it is very comfortable and is great for smaller spaces and spacious lounges alike.

But what about taking it a step further and going for a 3-seater l-shape with adjustable backs? No kidding! The Belmont 3-Seater L-shape sofa is the perfect example, it is one of the most comfortable sofas to have and if you have tall guests or they just feel like relaxing in ultimate comfort they can simply pop back the back and viola the whole sofa can becomes a spacious daybed.

Retro is back! If you want to spice up your Airbnb with some colour, then a perfect option is the Bedford 3-Seater Sofa. It is great for small spaces and can be paired with other sofas or occasional chairs for an eclectic look, which is a very popular and sought-after style these days. Add a few scatter cushions and side tables and you have a very trendy and functional space.

Love the Retro look, but prefer an L-shaped sofa? The next best Retro option is the Montgomery 3 seater sofa. It is big enough to seat a few guests and it still allows you to achieve the look you want in your Airbnb without compromising on comfort.

Now that you have your most important furniture piece covered let's move on to easy decorating tips to add more character to the space.

2. Paint the room a neutral colour

Think about your guests, what will they enjoy more a vibrant pink wall or a subtle neutral colour wall that bounces off light and gives the space a more open airy feel.

3. Mix and match

Everything does not have to match, bring in different colours, different textures and different fabrics through adding accents such as scatter cushions, throws and area rugs.

4. Update the lighting

Lighting is probably the most important element when updating your space. It defines the mood and can brighten and enhance the glow of the room. A really good tip here is to add dimmers so that your guests can dim or brighten the lighting according to what they find comfortable.

5. Use your location for inspiration

People are traveling from all over the world. And they probably want to stay in a place that is reminiscent of where you are. Draw inspiration from your surroundings for instance if your Airbnb is located near the beach use those natural colour schemes to define your interior theme.

We hope that you now have a clearer direction of what to do when decorating your Airbnb. Remember comfort and functionality are the main ingredients to give your guests the best experience at your Airbnb.
