    Whatever type of space you share on Airbnb, there are a few simple things you can do to make it inviting and comfortable as you get ready to welcome your first guests.

    Practice thoughtful design

    A well-designed space with thoughtful touches can help create a welcoming home. Try featuring objects that show off your personality, like mementos from your travels. Considerate design elements can help your space feel more homey and inviting—and they don’t have to be complicated or expensive.

    Here are a few tips for thoughtful design:

    • Avoid leaving too many empty spaces, as they can feel sterile and impersonal
    • Consider adding statement pieces like a piece of art, colorful throw pillow, or cozy blanket
    • Decorate with plants or flowers to add a touch of life to your space
    • Choose a palette of colors and find artwork, textiles, and other details that coordinate
    Airbnb Plus hosts Sam and Chad share design tips on how they add personality to their space.

    Stock up with essential amenities (and more)

    Items that are important to have in a space:

    • Toilet paper
    • Soap (for hands and body)
    • One towel for each guest
    • One pillow for each guest
    • Linens for each guest bed
    • Wifi
    • A hair dryer
    • A laptop-friendly workspace

    It’s always nice to include extras like: 

    • Shampoo and conditioner
    • Cozy blankets and extra pillows
    • Local offerings like chocolate and coffee

    Create a cozy bedroom

    The bedroom is where your guests will sleep and store their belongings, so it’s important to make it comfortable. Here are some amenities to consider:

    • Space for personal items: Consider providing a dresser with empty drawers, a closet with a handful of available hangers, or a luggage rack.
    • A bedside table with a lamp: Guests will want things like their eyeglasses, phone, glass of water, or book near the bed.
    • A comfortable bed: Pay special attention to the bed itself. Adding a few extra pillows and blankets and making a tidy bed can go a long way toward making guests comfortable.
    • Thoughtful extras: To make the space extra welcoming, you could also add some plants, a mirror, a carafe for water, an international power adapter, and a multi-phone charger.

    Add finishing touches

    These four touches will help your guests enjoy a great stay:

    1. Remove clutter
    If you also live in the space you’re sharing with guests, it’s important to consider the items you keep out and those you put away. Decluttering can help make your space feel more open and inviting.

    2. Provide instructions for all features and appliances
    Help guests understand how to operate all appliances and features available to them. You can include these kinds of instructions in your house manual

    3. Stay like a guest
    Hosts Beverlee and Suzie from Oakland, California, recommend staying in your space to help figure out what’s needed or what could be improved. They suggest looking at each room with fresh eyes, like a guest who has just arrived. Does it feel welcoming, warm, and inviting? Do guests have everything they need to feel comfortable and at home?

    Hosts Beverlee and Suzie talk about how they prepare for guests by staying in their own space.

    4. Keep it clean
    Whether you clean your space yourself or hire a professional, it’s important to keep your home tidy and follow the 5-step enhanced cleaning process before and after each guest. You can add a cleaning fee to your listing to cover the cost of your time (or your cleaner’s).

    Hosts share their favorite cleaning tips and tricks.
