Why interior design is key to optimise your listing on Airbnb, and other short let platforms

Why interior design is key to optimise your listing on Airbnb, and other short let platforms

St John's Wood, London: 3-bed home. At Hostmaker, we know that interior design is critical to make sure your home attracts great tenants and guests. Our in-house interior design team can help to create stylish, unique spaces cost-effectively, and really give the property the wow factor. 

When the owner of this property in St John's Wood came to us, he was struggling to find tenants and wasn't sure what to make of the empty space. Interested by our solutions, he also asked if we had any interior designers in our books who could help to make the most of his 3-bedroom home. We briefed At Home with Hostmaker, our interior design studio, to work with his budget to revamp the whole house and set-it up for guests. 

The property owner was delighted with the design, and loved the rental income increase even more!
