I’m including links to the products I have and love in my Church Street Airbnb. If I don’t include a link, it’s because I either don’t really like the product I got, or I used thrifted vintage items.
Good quality mattress
- Based on the excessively thorough mattress reviews from Wirecutter, I got these ones. 1, 2, 3
- Don’t forget a mattress protector. A fabric cover with a zipper will protect the mattress from bugs and dirt and in the event of excessively messy guests, you can just replace the mattress case and keep the mattress.
- I like this super lightweight sturdy bed frame.
- And a nice headboard, which you can attach to the wall or to the frame using these.
- Don’t try to get too creative here. When you sleep in a stranger’s house, there is going to be nothing more comfortable than clean, white sheets. Yes, white. Not brown, not blue and green stripes. White.
- Get pillowcases, a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, and a duvet cover from the same brand so you don’t have to worry about them being different shades of white.
- It’s a nice touch to offer two pillows per person – medium-firm + soft or down-alternative + memory foam.
- Much like with the mattress protector, pillow protectors can save you from having to replace your pillows too often.
Bedspread / Comforter / Duvet / Quilt / Blanket
- You just need one of these, and maybe an added blanket for extra warmth and luxury.
- I’ve got this duvet insert, this duvet cover on each of my beds in the winter, and this fleece blanket on each of my beds in the summer.
Dresser or chest of drawers and/or closet with hangers
- Because for some reason, some people like to unpack.
- A luggage rack is also a nice touch, especially if the room is too small for a dresser.
Night stand or side table on each side of the bed
- Because people don’t like to keep their phone on the floor.
- This could be a ceiling fan or floor fan.
- Choose mirrors that add to your décor / theme.
- This should include ambient lighting (ceiling fixture or floor lamps), and task lighting (lamps on each side of the bed).
- You’ll definitely want trash bins in the bathrooms, but it’s great to have them in the bedrooms too.
- Blinds and or curtains that block out most light.
- laundry hamper
- bed skirt
- a colorful throw pillow and/or throw blanket
- area rug
- wall decor
- space heater or portable AC unit
- wifi password sign
- wall clock
- alarm clock
- phone charging cables and wall adapters
