Preparing your vacation rental for photos is an important step in making your property look appealing and attractive to potential guests. Here are some tips to help you prepare your Airbnb for photos:
- Clean and tidy up: Make sure your property is spotless and tidy. This includes decluttering and organizing any messes. Remember, the cleaner your space, the more inviting it will appear in your photos.
- Focus on the main areas: Make sure to focus on the most important areas of your property, such as the living room, bedroom, and kitchen. These areas should be clean, well-lit, and staged appropriately.
- Highlight unique features: If your property has unique features, such as a beautiful view, interesting artwork, or a cozy fireplace, make sure to showcase them.
- Use natural lighting: Natural lighting is the best way to showcase your property. Open up all the curtains and blinds, and capture as much natural light as possible.
- Add some finishing touches: Adding a few decorative elements, such as fresh flowers or a decorative throw pillow, can help make your property look more inviting and homey.
- Kitchens are a place to shine. Display your top kitchen appliances including a “coffee bar” if possible.
- Bedrooms, refresh bedding with clean, high quality sheets and comforters. Clear bedside tables of clutter.
- Stock the bathrooms with new toiletries and towels. You want your guests to feel indulged and pampered. Replace any toilet paper with a new roll.
- Don’t forget the laundry room. A clean, tidy and well stocked laundry room is important to some of your guests.
- Keep it simple: Remember, less is often more when it comes to staging your property for photos. Avoid cluttering your space with too many accessories or decorations.
- Don’t forget the outdoors. Clean up landscaping, cut the grass, remove leaves. Remove dead plants. Remove empty planters
By following these tips, you can help ensure that your vacation photos look their best and attract potential guests.
