So you’re thinking making some extra coin renting out your spare room. There’s plenty of things to think about and some expense before you start making some filthy lucre.
Your room must have furniture so what should you consider when you are buying furniture? Choice of furniture can be sorted into two things, function or form. Think what pieces are important to your guests? What use does it fulfill?
Visitors have needs and you must fulfill them to create a great experience. Think about the pieces that travellers will be using most. If I have a studio apartment that I am using for business travelers, I would concentrate on a finding a comfy bed and awesome desk. You want to give the impression that this place is a working environment. Focus your money where the guest will be most benefit..
We spend a lot of time in bed and the bed we spend it in as a lot to do with how comfortable we are during the night and day. You should also care about your bed because a good night’s sleep is essential for a good day ahead.
The most important thing that you should look for, while buying a bed, is the comfort. Unless the bed is comfortable, your guests won’t like sleeping on it. Also don’t buy a bed that is difficult to make. You want to be able to make the bed quickly when your guest leaves.
One thing to consider if you have the room is a four poster bed which gives a feeling of luxury to a room and could mean that your room may get more guests at a higher price point.
Don’t buy things that are hard to use or difficult to operate. Someone’s trip can be ruined if the couch bed sometimes sticks and you need to use a screwdriver to get it unstuck.
So make your budget then allocate your money to buy your items and you’ll be well on the way to start making money on airbnb
