As we approach the end of the year (aw, I can’t believe I’m saying that), it’s pretty common to look ahead and think about plans for the upcoming year. Many people like to make new year resolutions, but when it comes to hosting, this can often signal a time to refresh your home. Some new guest towels perhaps or a new coat of paint in the bathroom or something bigger like that garden shed you have had your eye on!
What are your plans for sprucing up your listing in 2020?
We'd love to hear your input for an upcoming article. Thank you!
After renting for one year and getting guest feedback, we finally added a TV. We also added down-alternative toppers to the beds. Touch-up paint, like someone else said, was necessary but not bad considering folks store their skis and mountain bikes inside the house. We added a dining area and upgraded the sofa. Hopefully that will be it for another year!
I love kitchen upgrades!
Just as a thought - you may even want to consider some of the new laminate/formicas.... they have come a LONG way... they no longer have the dark seams and have added texture/depth to them.
I have "granite" laminates in my house by Formica and I'm amazed at the number of people who think it's real granite at first. Fraction of the cost and no maintenance like sealing!
It's amazing how far they've come (vs. my own home where I have 60's formica with all the aluminum edging because they didn't know how to form it back then lol)
A new roof on patio and strained glass I love but haven't found an exact place where my strained glass would look. Was also thinking about a garden revamp I think roses just makes everything more brighter
We love to host and have 5 star ratings due to Our beautiful park like backyard.
We want the interior to feel like a warm beautiful space with a theme. - so we are planning an entire upgrade throughout the interior - new floors, new bathrooms, doors, countertops, fresh paint, modern lighting and ceiling fans - plus we are crawling into the attic to repair / revitalize AC duct work to ensure our master bedroom gets the cool air needed to cool the hot Texas sun heat!
we can’t wait to show it off - it’ll be a quick turnaround - sure to excite our future guests!
That's going to a great project you working on revamping and making everything fresh to all doing a revamp enjoy doing it, its a great way too to keep occuppied
We have done quite a number of improvements and mods to all our units. Always creating and improving and coming up with more and more innovative ideas. Here are a few.....
Hello it's Aiman. Am New to Airbnb, hosting a property in Uganda (https://www.airbnb.com/s/Manyangwa-Road--Gayaza--Uganda?metadata_only=false&version=1.7.0&items_per_... link.
It's a blessing to be here with you all😊
I’m upgrading all our windows downstairs. I did the sliding glass door to the backyard a few months ago and I love it. So I’m waiting for April to update the windows and taking the fake rock off the house and replacing it with rusted aluminum. Can’t wait. We use our Airbnb money and put it back into the house for our guests.
I’m painting baseboards and pressure washing house and pool deck. Getting a ceiling fan and some full length mirrors. I always ask guests what I could do to make their stay better. I’m going to make preprinted questionnaires with return postage paid envelopes. Just see if I can get more information and stats on my own. I’m going to make an album with the anonymous returned questions/answers and have it available in the space for other tenants to see. Just want to try this. I think if new guests see that I’ve listened to prior company and adjusted suggestions in to reality I will even look that much more engaged in a positive Airbnb experience.
Some great suggestions here! I will definitely be painting walls as they do get accidental cosmetic damage from guests. It is also a great opportunity to add some missing amenities such as a coffeemaker.
