Transforming your Inner-city Property into a Profitable Airbnb


If you’re considering turning your inner-city rental property or home into an Airbnb, then it’s important to makes sure it stands out from the competition.   

The demand for Airbnb is booming right now and so it’s never been more crucial to make sure your place stands out against the rest and is equipped the right way. Making sure your Airbnb is styled nicely and looking presentable in photos is just the start, but ensuring that guests have all amenities they need is what will set you apart from the rest.   

In this blog, we’re featuring images from a stunning Victorian era townhouse in Richmond. We furnished and styled this property in a modern-scandi style to suit the client’s requests and to make it appealing to a broad range of potential guests.  



Equipping your Airbnb with the right furniture.  

First of all, you will need to consider your furniture choices and ensure they all suit the size and style of the property. You will need to think about how many seats are needed in the living and dining area, which you can base off the number of beds provided.  For example, if you only have one queen size bed then you will only need to cater seating for two people. However, if you have more beds then it will mean you need to provide enough seating for a larger number of people.  

You can look into sourcing different sized sofas, armchairs, stools and dining chairs to ensure there’s enough to seat everyone at once comfortably. If you’re lacking space then it’s best to choose furniture pieces that are slim and without arms, so that they don’t take up as much room.  



Sometimes providing adequate seating can be tricky in inner-city properties because of the small floorplans and awkward layouts. This is where you can be a bit creative and introduce multifunctional furniture like ottomans, which can be used as a footstool, coffee table and, of course, an extra seat.



You might also need to position your dining table in a spot that might not necessarily be ideal, but is the most suitable spot for your floorplan. This could mean sitting it against a wall or in a different room.



Ensuring essential amenities for your Airbnb.

Along with this you will need to remember the importance of kitchen, bathroom and laundry amenities. Once again, you will be required to have enough dinnerware sets, crockery and cutlery to suit the number of guests staying at the Airbnb. People need to be able to eat and drink comfortably with the addition of cooking utensils and appliances to be able to cook.  



When shopping for these items, keep in mind the amount of space you have to store everything and choose things that will fit well within the space. It’s worth taking measurements of your cupboards, drawers and benches so that you know you’re selecting the right items.



The more items you can supply in your Airbnb the better. Make sure all of the cupboards are filled with everyday household items that guest might need to use and equipment to help clean up after themselves. 



The importance of making your property Airbnb ready.

Equipping your Airbnb well is very important so that your guests can have an easy and enjoyable stay with everything thoughtfully provided for them. 

By considering all of the furniture choices and amenities for your property, it will help to elevate your Airbnb and set it apart from the competition. By doing all of this, it can also help to create a higher rental return
