Airbnb Bathroom Essentials – Make Your Airbnb Bathroom Stand Out

Elevate Your Airbnb Bathroom: A Complete Guide to Airbnb Bathroom Essentials

In the past month, I’ve come across two friends who’ve decided to transform their primary residence into an Airbnb while they were out of town for an extended period of time. Seems like a lot of work but the pay-off is fantastic – a few days of renting your home as a vacation home can pay down your mortgage for a month or two! Homeowners seem to be catching onto this Airbnb trend and financial opportunity.

It can also be fun to design your home in such a way that it is welcoming and neutral for Airbnb guests. While most Airbnb accommodations offer the standard essentials in each room, how can you set your bathroom apart from the rest? Elevate your guest experience by offering additional amenities that go beyond the ordinary. By providing thoughtful extras in your Airbnb bathroom, you can capture your guests’ attention and make your listing a preferred choice among the options available.

So whether you’re thinking of making your home or a new rental property Airbnb-ready, or simply looking to create a more minimalist vibe in the home for yourself, here are some tips to transform your bathroom into the perfect home-away-from-home Airbnb space.

Refillable Soap Bottles

A big trend these days is to have some modern and simple refillable soap and lotion bottles in your bathroom. These bottles offer numerous advantages that can enhance both guest satisfaction and your overall hosting experience.

Eco-Friendly: One of the most notable benefits is the environmental aspect. Refillable soap bottles significantly reduce plastic waste, as they eliminate the need for single-use plastic bottles that contribute to pollution. By opting for refillable options, you’re demonstrating your commitment to sustainable practices, which can resonate positively with eco-conscious guests.

Cost-Effective: Refillable soap bottles can lead to cost savings in the long run. While the initial investment might involve purchasing larger quantities of soap, these bottles can be refilled with bulk or more affordable options. Over time, this can translate to lower expenses compared to continuously purchasing individual travel-sized toiletries.

Aesthetic Appeal: Refillable soap bottles can be chosen to match your bathroom decor, contributing to a cohesive and visually appealing atmosphere. This attention to detail can enhance the overall guest experience and create a more welcoming environment.

Convenience: Refillable soap bottles eliminate the need for constantly restocking single-use items. Once filled, they can last for an extended period, reducing the frequency of maintenance tasks. Guests can also easily identify and access the soap they need without the hassle of unwrapping and disposing of packaging.

Positive Guest Experience: Providing refillable soap bottles can contribute to an overall positive impression of your Airbnb. Guests appreciate the effort put into offering sustainable amenities that align with modern values. This can lead to better reviews, increased guest satisfaction, and even repeat bookings.

Shower Bottles

Part and parcel with the hand soap bottles, you can also add some cute and practical matching shampoo, conditioner and body wash bottles to your Airbnb bathroom bathtub and shower. Offering your guests readily available shampoo, conditioner, and body wash in the bathroom is a thoughtful detail that adds a special touch to their stay. And nothing looks better than clean lines and a matching set. Many hotels are moving away from those little plastic bottles that are used and thrown out, to having a nice, modern set of re-usable bottles in the shower that are fixed to the wall. This approach enhances the overall guest experience and contributes to a more welcoming and thoughtful environment in your Airbnb.

Turkish Hand Towels

Like a hotel, you want to have several towels available in the bathroom for your guests. But one way to make their stay extra special is to offer soft and stylish eco-friendly Turkish cotton towels. Turkish towels are not only beautiful and trendy, they are very practical. They dry quickly, are super absorbent and get softer with each wash!

Consider having a couple nice hand towels available in the bathroom (and kitchen!), as well as comfy oversized bath towels so your Airbnb guests feel luxurious and comfortable with each wash. Also ensure you have a towel rack and hooks on the bathroom door if it’s a small bathroom for your guests to hang their towels after use. Guests expect simple things like that.

First Impression Scents

When you walk into the room, one of the first things you notice is the smell and your brain immediately creates either a positive or negative reaction to your environment based on scent. So, don’t underestimate the power of keeping your space smelling fresh to keep your Airbnb ratings high!

Your guests will certainly appreciate staying in a space that not only looks clean, but also smells fresh and inviting. Adding a reed diffuser to your bathroom is the perfect way to gently release a consistent and subtle fragrance throughout the space.

This creates a pleasant and inviting atmosphere without overwhelming guests with strong scents. Unlike candles, reed diffusers don’t require constant monitoring or an open flame. They are low maintenance and can be left unattended, making them safe and convenient for guests.

Another reason why they are a great option for your Airbnb is that they can last for months, so you don’t have to worry about replacing them for awhile! They also act as a decorative element that can complement the interior decor of your airbnb as they come in elegant designs.

Bring the Outside In

Everyone loves plants these days because they provide that earthy and authentic feel to every room. If your bathroom has a window, don’t forget about making room for a small plant to finish off the space! If you’re low on counter space, you can also hang one in the corner of your room.

A cute, natural rope plant pot is the perfect finishing touch to bring a sense of calm and comfort to your bathroom space. If the maintenance of a reel plant isn’t an option, there are great faux plants available as an alternative.
