Designing an Airbnb
Posted on October 20 2021
Jux-ta-Posh is a one-of-a-kind home décor store set in the downtown district of the Hub City. Our owner, Kim Sparks, first opened the store in 2011 with a vision to bring the vibe of historical antiques with a modern twist to the Lubbock area. As we Jux Girls have worked alongside her, we've seen her creative eye choose the perfect pieces for customers to renovate furniture and accentuate any type of space. She works closely with our Jux-tomers to help design the spaces while accommodating their personal styles and needs!
Kim often takes on additional design projects outside the store's walls. One of her recent projects has been to renovate and decorate an Airbnb. These overnight rental spaces have become exceedingly popular, and who better to create the perfect Lubbock stay than Kim! She began to envision each space and brainstorm what touches would make those spaces have their own personality.
“Designing an Air B&B requires you to expand your outlook on design. There are just a lot of things you have to consider when it comes to finding the right products specifically for the B&B that you are designing,” Kim said.
When it comes to designing an Airbnb, you’ve got to think about appealing to the wants and needs of guests, while keeping it readily available. It's been incredible to watch Kim's talents come alive as she designed this project from a blank slate to the perfectly finished spaces. Kim shared with me many key elements to having a fun and attractive Air B&B, and I’m here to share some of them with you!
- Your guests are traveling to you for a reason, so make sure to add some local charm
- Be practical with your pieces – the B&B needs to be easy to clean, stocked with home essentials, etc.
- Make it “instagramable” – keep it fun and unique with design for your guests to snap a fun photo
- Have fun with the simplicity of the design—a little goes a long way, so pick less pieces that say more
The overall goal when it comes to designing an Airbnb is for guests to feel the personal comfort of a home. Make it a space they can't wait to stay in again on their next visit!
