With more than 5 million listings worldwide and over 400 million travellers using the platform to date, Airbnb has never been more popular.

As Airbnb property managers, we want to help our community of hosts to elevate their homes in order to attract more guests.

We believe a well-designed home attracts more bookings on Airbnb and guests have a more enjoyable experience from the moment they enter the door and if you take the time to curate a nice design, it’s something that’s going to stay in people’s minds.

We Stay’s top design tips to instantly take your Airbnb listing to the next level

1. Designed for Comfort

Firstly, you want your guests to feel as though the space has been thoughtfully designed with their needs in mind. It doesn’t cost a lot to craft something a little more special!

Add coat stands in the hallway or a chalkboard in the kitchen with some quick recipes jotted down. Place an ottoman in the lounge for travellers’ weary feet after a day of sightseeing, or make sure there are enough towel pegs in the bathroom to hang extra fluffy towels.

2. Don’t Be Afraid To Go Bold

Don’t shy away from statement interior schemes, like oversized art pieces, wall murals or magnificent hanging lighting options. The goal is to make your Airbnb listing stand out, and there are plenty of adventurous guests looking for a space with a “wow factor”.

3. Dress Up The Windows

If you can afford not to, don’t use roller blinds. Heavier curtains work well and add so much warmth to a room, which is especially important for the winter months. Blackout curtains work best for a quality night’s sleep. Guests like privacy, so sheer curtains are an extra add on that you might want to consider.

4. Style With Flowers and Greenery

Explosive flower hangings are usually popular and make for dreamy pictures that guests want to share.

Allow for as much natural light to come into your space as possible in order to give life to your fresh flowers and plants. You can opt for long colourful stems in vases on tables, kitchen countertops, or coffee tables to lift photographs. Faux flowers are an excellent alternative for longer-lasting options.

5. Avoid Boring White Walls

Be brave and choose bold wallpaper or knock-out paint colours on feature walls. Pinterest can help you with lots of outside-the-box ideas.

6. Make It Instagrammable

Incorporate unique items into your interior that gives the room an Instagrammable focus point! Think about specific corners where you can achieve these fun ideas. Some ideas include a large wall-mounted stags head, a floor-standing feather lamp, or a shelving unit laced with local handmade ceramics.
