I love seeing how people decorate their homes on Airbnb. The styles are very eclectic from modern, to shabby chic, to retro and transitional. When I travel, I make sure I book a room on Airbnb because I love staying with locals and learning about native places, restaurants, and activities they recommend. But more than that, I enjoy the personalized experience in a comfortable and cozy home that I just wouldn’t get from staying in a hotel. Also, as an Airbnb host myself, I take pleasure in sharing my home with guests. In return, my guests enjoy their stay in a beautifully designed and comfortable home that makes them feel welcome, safe, and happy. If you are considering becoming an Airbnb host, I highly recommend it. I’ve met wonderful people from all over the world and one of my guests became a client of mine who also connected me to other clients and business professionals. My experience with Airbnb has been nothing but positive and a wonderful experience that I’m happy to share with anyone who is interested in learning more about Airbnb.
If you are considering becoming an Airbnb host, first think about the kind of guests you want to attract. Do you want to attract business professionals, families, single tourists, or older couples? Once you determine the guests you want to appeal to, think about what they would need if you were in their shoes. If you were a professional traveling for business, what would you need? Would you need a desk, access to internet, a printer, an iron, coffee, etc…? Next, come up with a theme for the space. If you live by the beach, create a beach bungalow feel or if you live in a cabin in the mountains, create a natural, rustic space that give guests the experience of being out in nature. Add personalized touches such as photographs that you took while traveling, hang artwork you were inspired by, or display knick knacks you have collected over the years. Place flowers and plants around your home to bring a touch of nature indoors and add aromatic fragrances that deepen the experience for your guests. The most important thing is to design your home so that it reflects who you are while providing guests with an authentic, local ambiance where they can get a unique adventure that they would never get by staying at a hotel.
