So you've gotten into the money making industry of Airbnb. Congrats. But having a second property alone isn't enough in today's competitive market to make the money you are wanting to pull in from your vacation rental property. If you want to become a superhost and book more nights, increase your prices, and boost your sales, then you need to improve the interior design of your Airbnb.
Learn from Hotels
The hospitality industry has been aware of the impacts of a well-designed space for a long time. Restaurants, bars, cafes, hotels, and retail stores have spent the time and money to improve their spaces and interiors, knowing that these upgrades will increase sales and improve revenue.
So why does this happen? It’s psychology. We as humans prefer pleasant spaces. If we have the choice between a two-star motel with dingy bedsheets, drab walls, and a funky smell over a 4-star resort with plush towels, stylish furniture, and high-end amenities, we’d choose the 4-star resort, even if that means paying a little extra for comfort.
Your guests crave an experience. That’s why unique stays such as sleeping in an airstream or glamping in a yurt can be $200+ a night. People stay at Airbnbs to get away, relax, and have a vacation. They want an experience that is unique, relaxing, and overall enjoyable.
