Airbnb Essentials: 10 Budget Necessity Items

The Basics: Airbnb Must-Haves

1. Linenspa Innerspring Hybrid Mattresses

Amazon review: “I can’t understand why anyone would give this less than a 5 star review? The company is awesome, the mattress arrived 2 days after I placed the order and was in perfect condition! The product description clearly states the dimensions and also clearly states that it is medium-firm. The mattress was incredibly easy to handle and came rolled up in a box. Opening the mattress was easy and took less than 5 minutes until I had it on the bed frame. I cannot speak to longevity as I have only had it for a week, but for a King sized mattress for less than $200 dollars, there is nothing to complain about! Within a few hours the mattress was puffed up to its full 8″ advertised height, and is the most comfortable mattress I’ve ever laid on. The memory foam topper makes the mattress soft, but the springs underneath provide excellent support. The springs are unnoticeable, and cannot be felt at all. The mattress is also very quiet and has no squeaking or spring sound. Prior to this mattress, I would wake up multiple times a night and adjust position and would always wake up in the morning with a headache, back pain and neck pain. Thanks to this mattress, those issues are a thing of the passed!” By C.T.

2. HAITRAL Small Table Lamps – Modern Nightstand Lamps Set 

Amazon Review: This lamp is exactly as it’s described. Very elegant and beautiful. Easy to attach and use.

This is my second purchase for the month. I loved the first one so much I decided to gift another to my sister for Christmas and she completely loved it. I bought the blue one, it is a unique color as u can see. We generally don’t get such colors in market so I didn’t have any second thoughts before buying this. I’m very satisfied – Sach Esh

3. MAGIC UNION End Table – Night Stand Storage Shelf with Bin Drawer

Amazon Review: This table is exactly what I needed! All the other side tables I had seen were either cheap looking, or super pricey. This table definitely looks more expensive than the $40some dollars I paid for it. The assembly was also super easy, a few reviews said it was difficult, but I think it took me like 20minutes… (just follow the pictures.)
It’s also a great size. Able to fit all my bedtime essentials (charger, glass of water remote…etc) and the under storage is perfect for books! I was also impressed with the spaciousness of the inside drawer, it’s not giant, but it has a good depth. And it’s a good height, at first I thought I wanted something taller, but this is actually perfect. Definitely recommend this side table! By Jessica

4. Furmax Pre Assembled Modern Style Dining Chair 

Amazon Review: These are DEFINITELY Mom-approved! They comfortably fit everyone in our family from age 2-38 without any issues! They were super easy to put together, too! They haven’t threatened to tip over at all, despite the 2 yr old climbing up & down on them 300 times already! They are incredibly easy to clean…just wipe right off with a damp dishcloth. They’ve even held up quite well, to me using them to stand on, so I can reach my ceiling to decorate. They definitely get a 5-star rating from me, ESPECIALLY at roughly $20/chair! By Racca

5. SoHoMiLL Electronic keyless Door Knob with Backup Mechanical Key 

Airbnb Listing Tips: Provide keyless entry to your Airbnb listing could save you time and money, guest can check-in anytime without bothering you.

Amazon Review: I was surprised how effective this is as a replacement for a key in a low security situation! We use it on our garage side entrance so we don’t have to worry about finding (or losing) the key. It’s simple to install, straightforward to use, and generally stays out of the way. My only criticism is that it is a little bulkier than a regular doorknob, and it is hard to see the buttons.. but once you learn the combination by heart you’re not looking at the numbers that much anyway. If they could make it a tad less bulky and angle the front handle up a bit for easier visibility of the keypad, it’d be almost perfect! By Jeff Atwood

6. GreenForest Queen Bed Frame Metal Studio Platform Bed (No Box Spring Needed and Noise-Free)

Amazon Review: Love this bed. Fairly easy to assemble. Took my grandson about and hour to have it all set up form my granddaughter. The slats are thick and I don’t think there will be an issue with them breaking easily like the thin ones that came with the last platform bed we bought. No creaking and the mattress fits nicely within the lip so there is no sliding around. My granddaughter loves it. We were going for a rustic beachy cottage look in her room and this was the perfect bed for her. By Kaye Keith

7. BAYKA Floating Shelves Wall Mounted, Rustic Wood Wall Shelves Set of 3

Amazon Review: Soft wood but still sturdy enough to hold a 20lb cat! This was a much cheaper alternative than buying real cat wall furniture. I hate real cat trees and think they look super tacky and take up so much space, so I searched the internet for cat wall ideas. This was perfect! I made sure to use dry wall screws and please be sure you’re lining up the holes right! I jumped the gun and didn’t realize I screwed the holes incorrectly (hole side must face the wall!). I lined it the shelves with some grass turf so kitty doesn’t slip 🙂 By Tanya

8. Superior Modern Rockwood Collection Area Rug

Amazon Review: Serves its purpose for the price! Hallway runner looks exactly as pictured! Colors and everything was what I thought it would be. It’s been like a week I think and it’s finally completely flattened out for the most part (you can help the process along by putting heavy stuff on each fold and each corner). It’s a little bit shorter than I thought but that’s because my measurements were off. Not a big deal. The material feels like a rug for under $50! I mean what can you really say? I bought it to wipe our feet on when we come in so that’s the purpose it serves. Not to be the softest plush rug that feels like a cloud. I think some reviewers were expecting way too much out of this rug for this cheap. If you really want that super thick lux feeling area rug that’s high quality, then this is not the rug for you. I would suggest going to Bed Bath and Beyond. I paid $200 for my area rug in my living room and it has held up great! So again, this one serves its purpose and looks good doing it, but don’t expect a lot out of it for the price.
I will also mention that if you have hardwoods or laminate flooring, you will DEFINITELY need to order a rug liner! No question about it! We’re slipping and sliding all over the place so I’m ordering one within the next couple days! By jazmine

9. TANGKULA Modern Coffee Table with Lift Top Storage

Amazon Review: This arrived today, I have yet to put it together. I am a middle aged woman and this is going to kick my behind, I think lol. It’s really heavy but packaged well. No damage. I did take everything out of the box, without making too big a mess of the plastic and foam. The instructions are in the box with the hardware (found this out after I couldn’t find them IN the large box. The instructions are pictures that made my head spin so I put everything away until the weekend comes here. Then…I sat on the couch and thought “what the heck did I get myself into here?” Well, my logical brain kicked in. Work smarter not harder. Youtube will be your bff when you put it together…there is a video. Just put Tangkula coffee table lift top assembly in the search. You’ll find it. Granted they make it look easier than it probably is, but i feel way better about the process. Wish me luck! By doggy momma

10. FOLUBAN Rustic Coffee Table or Industrial Cocktail Table

Amazon Review: Awesome product. Came in three pieces which made it super easy to assemble. The tabletop is slightly bigger than I expected based on some of the photos I saw in reviews, so that was a pleasant surprise. Seems super sturdy based on its design and quality. The tabletop itself is good quality and matches my other pieces in the living room. Very happy that I went with this after going back and forth and looking at similar coffee tables (and living without a living room coffee table in the meantime!) for a few months. By Makenna Wingo
