The Affordable Art Your Airbnb Needs Now!

Oct 24, 2019

Decorating walls is something that very few Airbnbs get right, but those that do are undoubtedly more inviting and ultimately more successful. 

Art should make your room feel more alive, and more inviting!

Let's go through some examples of inexpensive, yet interesting art.

If you're after something to put in a frame you already own, I highly suggest scouring Etsy. Typically downloadable print files cost around $10 or less. Then all you have to do is print them out from Staples or an online source like Vistaprint in the size that you need. (There will be preset size options listed on the product, so make sure the scale will work with your existing frame if you have one.)

If you've been paying any attention to the design scene lately, you'll notice that plants are everywhere.

They literally bring life to a room, and can make an otherwise flat design feel complete and photo ready. Plants will make your temporary rental stand apart from your hotel competitors because: 

Hotels don't have plants!

As you're designing your Airbnb, you don't want to skip over adding some green buddies to your space!

However, I can understand your hesitation, especially if you yourself aren't going to be visiting the property regularly to care for them. Luckily, I've put together this easy guide for you to follow to make the process less stressful!
