How To Stage Your Airbnb

Staging your Airbnb before you photograph is a great way to manage expectations, and show renters how they can use the space to accomplish their goals. Staging is pretty simple, and adding little small luxuries for your clients is the best way to get even more money for your home rental.
Make sure you stage your bedroom and bathroom as well as any other rooms that you are offering!


Bedrooms

The Interior design of Bedrooms should be staged for comfort and relaxation. You can easily add touches to your space by mixing in textures and vibrant colors. A faux white fur rug and white sheer curtains are a perfect and easy touch for any bedroom. It adds a feeling of comfort and relaxation to possible renters.  Feel free to add headboards, soft white lights, and poofy pillows. When you stage, always make sure the bed is made, and all-white bedspreads are perfect for showing clients how clean and comforting your space is.


Bathroom

Staging your bathroom is pretty simple, and an air of relaxation should be the theme. Make sure your bathroom is sparkling clean, and add little spa-like touches. 
  • This is done through small plants, crisp white towels, and bathrobes. 
  • Daylight bulbs can dramatically improve your space. 
  • Clean, crisp light transforms a bathroom. 
  • Clean mirrors can make your space look even bigger and even more relaxing. 
  • Consider adding a scented candle to any of the rooms you decide to stage.

If you can, sell luxury in your Airbnb by adding little touches such as crisp white towels, or a mint on a bed. Once your Airbnb is properly staged, you can take new photos of your clean space!

How To Photograph Your Airbnb

Before you take any photos, make sure your rental is clean! Make sure that every inch you show to your renters is immaculately clean.  
According to Airbnb,
"Add a variety of photos: To help guests understand what it’s like to stay in your space, take photos of the inside, outside, and neighborhood of your listing."

Take photos of the outside of your listing.

When photographing there are some simple tips to capturing great photos:
  • Take photos at eye level or higher with a drone or step stool or a may give you the leverage you need. Higher angles also make a room look bigger. Wide angles make it easy to capture a whole room and so make sure to take multiple photos.
  • Make sure you have all the lights turned on, and the shades open to light up space. Brighter rooms are more welcoming and photograph better, so try to take your photos when there is a lot of sunlight.
  • For poorly lit rooms, flash can be a lifesaver! You can also brighten your photos after you have taken them, but they may look more grainy.
  • Photograph any unique features of your listing to attract more renters.
  • Show additional amenities in your lists, such as a coffee bar, or any extra perks you offer in your Airbnb.
  • Once you have photos of everything you need, and they are properly lit and ready to post, it is time to upgrade your listing.
