  2. Local designs
  3. Live plants
  4. Luggage racks for bedrooms
  5. Add a welcome table
  6. Daybeds for relaxation

1. International Designs

International décor design

What better way to make someone feel at home in your Airbnb than with a piece of their home country? Your guests will love the effort and enjoy the cultural feel of it. Add a mix of more permanent décor pieces, like a couch or table, with more temporary items, like a bedside light fixture. Find out where a guest is coming from before they arrive and find a little piece of décor prominent in their country, to add to your Airbnb.

2. Local Designs

Local décor designs

As the saying goes – local is lekker – and there’s nothing more lekker than the diversity of the South African culture. Our country has plenty to offer from a wide range of different cultures, including the most interesting and thought-provoking décor. The work from some of the best artists in the world isn’t in museums and high-end stores, but rather on the streets of South Africa. If you’re looking for some local décor pieces, don’t be shy to stop off the next time you see the brilliant creators working on the side of the road. You can also find some brilliant pieces online on the following site: https://www.etsy.com/market/south_african_decor

3. Live Plants 

Live plants

Plants are one of the best ways to make an Airbnb, or any home for that matter, feel alive. The fresh air they circulate and the beautiful colours they display will work wonders in welcoming your guests into your Airbnb. Here are some plants to add to your Airbnb décor shopping list:

  • Bird’s Nest Fern
  • Peperomia
  • Monstera Deliciosa
  • Peace Lily
  • Spider Plant
  • Christmas Cactus

4. Luggage Racks For Bedrooms

Luggage rack

Part of making your guests’ stay enjoyable is making it easy. They’ll often be coming in with large bags of luggage that need to be unpacked. Having a luggage rack readily available for them to place their bag on will be met with appreciation. It’s a better option than having to constantly bend down to the floor and stand up again, or placing the bag on their beds. 

5. Add A Welcome Table

Welcome table

If you’ve got guests visiting the country or city for the first time, they’ll need information on all the best spots in town. A welcome table should be added to your Airbnb decorating ideas because it’s a way to get them up to speed with how they can keep themselves entertained. Here are some ideas for info to add to your welcome table:

6. Daybeds For Relaxation


After a long day spent exploring the city, your guests will relish the opportunity to head back to your Airbnb for some much-needed relaxation. Having a daybed placed in a quiet space with some sunlight covering it is the perfect addition for those relaxed moments. Place a few interesting books next to it for those who love reading.
