Airbnb Checklist: How to Create a Living Room Your Guest Will Rave About

Create a cozy and inviting living room by spending a little more on a high-quality, comfortable, and stylish sofa.

Smart TV

Investing in a TV that fits your space is one important component in creating an overall feeling of relaxation for your guests.

These days, having a Smart TV that allows guests to easily watch Netflix and other streaming services is a must-do.

Airbnb Hosting Tip: Go above and beyond by showcasing your large TV as the anchor to your cozy living room. Mount it on the wall and highlight it in photos on your listing.

Durable pillows

You’ll love these beautiful faux leather pillowcases, coordinating black pillowcases, and soft pillow inserts because they’re high-quality, don’t show dirt easily, and look great.

These pillows really pop in photos, so I highly recommend grabbing them before you take your Airbnb listing photos.

Coffee table

Throw blankets

Wifi sign

One of the first things your guests will want when they arrive is the wifi code. Don’t make them search around, leave it front and center on a wifi sign.

Board games & playing cards

Surprise your guests with a few fun games to enjoy with each other.


Believe it or not, if you leave books out, guests are likely to pick them up and start reading. Best of all, you don’t need to buy brand new books. You can reuse old books you don’t read anymore or stop by a thrift store to find inexpensive ones.


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!)
