Furnishing an Airbnb can be quite a hassle, especially if you’re new to the process or if you’re running on a tight budget. Figuring out how to furnish a small Airbnb on a budget can, too, be difficult and you might be looking for ways to minimize costs.
Here are some suggestions that won’t break the wallet but also will undoubtedly transform your space into a stylish, comfortable, and profitable space!
- Set a budget
You wouldn’t know how to be on a budget until you’ve penned down how much you can shell out. You’re going to get a return on your investment with time, but at the same time discretionary spending could help you out. Browse through furniture online to get a sense of average rates, and decide how much you want to spend.
We at Inhabitr believe that renting furniture can be extremely helpful in cutting down on large investment costs. If you want to spend monthly, you could browse Inhabitr’s apartment furniture rental packages!
- Start with big, basic pieces of furniture
Think of how the space would be used. Your guests would need a medium-sized sofa to sit on. You’d, apart from this, need a bed and a mattress, storage pieces like dressers and cabinets, and probably a couple of tables. We’d advise you to pick neutral colors and styles for these pieces so that you’d have more flexibility later in switching up the style of the space with throw pillows and accessories.
- Think multi-purpose furniture
Any small apartment can benefit greatly from a couch bed, Murphy bed, or loft bed. Ingenious small-space solutions include ottomans that serve as storage areas as well as coffee tables that can be transformed into dining tables. One of the best budget furniture tips is to get pieces that will be functional in multiple ways: a bench that can double as a table would probably be a super handy piece, for example.
- Bring out the antiques
Nothing instills a space with a feeling of knowledge and history like a beautiful antique. Things from large box stores just cannot replicate the patina of antique items. Simply hunt for something that appears to have been purchased from a Paris flea market; you don’t need to pay a fortune. Antiques could be your way of making cheap furniture work well.
It’s fantastic to have large items like lighting, mirrors, and furnishings, but smaller decorations can also work. Antique picture frames, wall sconces with sculptures, or crates from another era can all add a special touch to your space and make it appear more expensive than it actually was.
- Mirrors can be magic
An inexpensive approach to improve a place is with mirrors. Mirrors give the appearance of more space and light in small or dim areas. Shops that specialize in home decor may have inexpensive mirrors, or you may go through estate sales for deals.
- Use decor creatively
Wall art could be a way of dressing your space up. Even if you’re not artistic, creating wall art is quite simple. Simply stretched canvases are inexpensive and may be painted or decoupaged with nearly anything. Throw rugs, too, are a terrific way to bring warmth, color, and design to an otherwise boring space in addition to protecting the floor (and safeguarding your deposit).
One low-cost option to brighten a dull place is to add more lighting. Think in layers, working your way down, while illuminating a space.
- Consider renting furniture
Getting rental furniture could provide an excellent middle ground instead of shelling out huge chunks of money at a go. Check out our bedroom sets or living room sets! You might find an answer to your problems.
