The goal of each bedroom in your Airbnb is to provide your guests will exactly what they need to feel relaxed and comfortable. One of the first things your guests will do when they arrive at your Airbnb is check out their bedroom, making sure the bed is comfortable and that they have room for all of their things. Ensure your guests start their vacation off right by providing everything in this Airbnb checklist.

Airbnb Checklist: How to Create a Bedroom Your Guests Won’t Want to Leave
Surprise your guests with blackout curtains in every bedroom, so they can peacefully sleep as late as they want while on vacation.
In general, try to find ways to encourage guests to stay longer; one convenient item that will make longer stays enjoyable is providing a laundry basket in each bedroom closet.
Your guests will undoubtedly need a place to put their luggage during their stay. Having a suitcase stands in each bedroom is a great way to achieve that.
Airbnb Hosting Tip: Think about the number of people that will likely stay in each room and make sure each one of them has a place for their belongings.
If you provide suitcase stands, then having a dresser isn’t an absolute necessity, but it’s a nice touch for guests who like to unpack.
Don’t overspend on your nightstands! Light, durable nightstands like these are all you need at your Airbnb–just make sure you get one for each side of the bed, so every guest has room for their things!
Ensure your guests can make full use of the closets by providing several hangers in each one.
Having a comfortable mattress is something that just can’t be overlooked.
One of the first things your guests will do is plop down on the bed to test it out. Make sure they’re pleasantly surprised by the mattress quality. A good night’s sleep is a requirement for guests, so this high-quality mattress is definitely worth investing in at your Airbnb.
Airbnb Hosting Tip: To make your Airbnb feel truly luxurious, get king-size mattresses where possible. Highlight these memory-foam king-size mattresses on your Airbnb listing, and assure your guests they’ll get a great night’s sleep when they stay with you.
These box springs are relatively inexpensive, easy to assemble, and hold up well.
Don’t draw attention to your box springs. Cover that weird off-white fabric with a nice, crisp, fitted sheet instead.
Airbnb Hosting Tip: You should expect to replace these sheets throughout the year, as they’ll inevitably get stained at some point. Always have backup sets so your cleaners can quickly swap ruined sheets with new ones as needed. It’s an inexpensive investment that will make a huge difference to your guests.
You just can’t go wrong with these beautiful and soft duvet covers.
Mattress protectors are an incredibly inexpensive way to protect the big investment you made in your mattress. You never know what guests are going to do in their bed, so don’t take the risk. Buy these high-quality mattress protectors before to avoid ruining your mattresses.
Go the extra mile by investing in bed bug-proof mattress encasements for your mattresses as well. These are a bit more expensive than typical mattress protectors, but I love the peace of mind I get by knowing that if there ever is a worst-case bed bug scenario, the impact will be a little less awful with these mattress encasements. And since these encasements can’t be easily removed, I love having a mattress protector on top, which my cleaners can easily wash as needed.
Don’t make your guests search for outlets and then awkwardly stretch halfway off the bed to plug their phones in at night.
Instead, make their lives easy by getting an inexpensive extension cord for each nightstand.
Better yet, select one with a USB port for an extra nice touch! (These tend to have shorter cords, so make sure it’s long enough to reach your nightstands.)
Some guests like to read at night. All guests like to have a light on so they don’t have to stumble into bed each night.
These inexpensive lamps for each nightstand do just the trick (did I mention they also have USB ports? You can never have too many!)
You never know what temperature your guests prefer at night, so be sure to provide extra blankets like this one.
I hope this Airbnb checklist saves you tons of time setting up your Airbnb. (Congrats, by the way! Starting your first Airbnb is a HUGE accomplishment!)
