How to Create Airbnb Bedrooms People Will Want to Book



Your Airbnb bedroom photos (and actual space of course) need to look amazing.

Why? Because in the age of visual over-stimulation you have only a few seconds to stand out from the crowd and catch a scrolling guests eye.

Want to know the key to getting more bookings?



Obviously having great listing photos means your Airbnb decor has to be good. Below are 7 Airbnb decor tips you can do on a budget.

#1 Big Headboard

Using a high headboard helps frame the room and fills it up without needing a lot of additional accessories.

Opt for headboards that are made from metal or wood that are easy to clean and more durable.


Here are some of my picks:

Monarch Specialties I 2616Q 47 Inch Tall Metal Queen/Full Size Headboard or Foot - Black

#2 Add Decor Items to Surfaces

Keeping furniture bare of decor accessories can look boring in photos.

Adding decor accents doesn’t need to break the bank, check out these simple examples:

Up your guest experience with a USB table lamp:

Rivet Caden Adjustable Task Table Desk Lamp With USB Port And LED Light Bulb - 25.5 x 20 x 7 Inches, Black and Brass

#3 Big Items

If you’re on a budget then you can get more bang for our buck with big items that fill up the space such as artwork or large mirror.

#4 Decorative Pillows and Throw Blankets

Decorative throw pillows create visual interest in photos.

Be sure to use various textures and patterns.

#5 Make your Bed Right with White

White bed sheets are associated with hotels, and you want that feeling to show through in your photos.

Here are some recommended sheets for you:

I recommend one soft pillow and one firmer kind.
