Instantly Elevate The Look Of Your Airbnb With This Easy Design Trick

Getting your Airbnb ranked on the first search result page and compelling potential renters to book your property out of the thousands of listings in the city is easier said than done. While the listing's description, amenities, and reviews will impact a renter's decision, the uploaded pictures will do most of the talking (and convincing!). Sure, an Airbnb with stunning views will grab some eyeballs, but renters are also interested in the interior of the house. Fortunately, there's a simple design trick to elevate the look of your listing instantly: wallpapers.

Wallpaper is a great way to refurbish the house without spending a fortune. A trendy listing will capture more hearts and make your property stand out from the crowd. Wallpaper can make the property look more enticing on the platform and Instagram, potentially tipping the booking scales in your favor. That's not all. You can design each room the way you want since wallpapers are available in a range of colors, textures, and patterns. The possibilities are virtually endless.

How wallpaper can up your Airbnb game

Wallpapers will add visual interest to your Airbnb listing. Each wallpaper will tell a story, lend an otherwise plain room a captivating personality, and intrigue your guests. Moreover, you have the flexibility to define the aesthetic of a room with the paper decoration you go with. For instance, a bold design will garner the most attention and be the showstopper in a room. Similarly, a subtle color combination and pattern will blend in with the decor of the space and give your hand-picked showstoppers the stage. Another good idea is to match the exterior of the house. So, a beach-side Airbnb will look inviting with neutral or white wallpaper.

Floral patterns, geometric designs, busy textures, and unique motifs will all give your property a facelift. However, wallpapers aren't just known for their beauty. These paper decorations will help you conceal the tiny holes and hairline cracks along your walls until you can commission a full-blown restoration of the property. The best part, though? If you go with peel-and-stick wallpapers, you won't have to hire professionals or buy fancy tools to install them. A measuring tape, level, and scissors will be enough for a gorgeous, cost-effective DIY. Further, they're easy to remove and won't damage your walls, so you can peel them and begin anew when the mood strikes.

How to choose the right wallpaper for your Airbnb

Although wallpaper's availability in a range of colors and patterns is a pro, it's also a con since the options are enough to confuse you and make you second-guess your choice. While saving your favorite looks on Instagram and Pinterest will give you a jumping-off point, consider a few things to choose the right wallpaper for your space. For starters, determine the vibe of your Airbnb. Decide if you want it to look more modern or if you're leaning towards a rustic environment. 

Another thing to consider is the room's size and the amount of light it receives. Neutral and light-toned paper decorations will create the illusion of an open space, while dark ones make a large room look cozy. Don't forget to account for the existing decorations, flooring, and furniture in the space. You can also apply the wallpaper on just one wall instead of all of them to bring together the varied elements. Regardless of the wallpaper you choose, get swatches to understand how a specific color or pattern would look in the room. Complement the wallpaper with artwork and unique decorations for an unmatched experience.
