This might be common sense, but if your hosting an entire home, you should have a full bathroom not just a half bath. That includes a toilet, shower or bathtub, sink, and hot water.
Like an any hotel you would stay at, you are provided with bath towels, hand towels, soap, etc. Make sure you stock up on extras of all of these.

A stylish Airbnb will attract more guests – that is a fact! Adding some cute bathroom decor and accents on the wall is a great way to get people to remember your bathroom.
You should also add functional decor like towel racks. Make sure that your guests will have somewhere to hang their towels after they take a shower or bath. You’ll want to have enough space for the maximum number of guests you allow.
If you have a small bathroom or doesn’t have anywhere to install a towel rack, consider adding extra ones in the bedrooms.
A lot of Airbnb homes are not new construction. My beach bungalow was built in 1942 so of course there are old pipes that haven’t been upgraded yet. To avoid plumbing problems, hang a sign like this one.
Now that we’ve gone through some of the categories for Airbnb bathroom essentials, let’s talk about where to buy them! We all want to save money, especially when running a vacation rental or small business.

Airbnb Bathroom Ideas
I always love to get inspiration from other Airbnb owners on how they decorate and stock their spaces! I found some of my favorite Airbnb bathrooms to showcase some great ideas for your own.
Pinterest is a great resource to find bathroom ideas. Also, do a quick search for your area on the Airbnb website and see what other owners are doing with their bathrooms. It’s great to hold a high standard and exceed the expectations of other vacation rentals around you.
