We are recommending you only white dishes because trough out the years we found them the longer lasting. First we started with black, blue and cream color, but after 3 months of using we had to change them.
Being over scratched, it simply didn’t look nice and if you are aiming for that 5-star review, you can’t afford to have that kind of dishes for your guests. 16 Ceramic Pieces to serve 4 people with amazing classic white color.
18-piece dinnerware set; service for 6; includes 6 each: 10.5-inch dinner plate, 7.5-inch salad plate, and 5.9-inch bowl AB-grade porcelain for everyday use; lightweight yet durable Elegant modern design for easy coordinating with existing tableware and decor Dishwasher-safe, freezer-safe, and microwave-safe; plates can withstand heat up to 572 degrees F Backed by an AmazonBasics 1-year limited warranty The option of being on vacation while still having a fully stocked kitchen to cook for themselves and any guests tends to be reflected in the reviews of listed properties on Airbnb.
For example, your guest is making tea and realizes that there is no kettle or that they plan to have a cozy family dinner while renting your Airbnb property only to find out that there aren’t enough plates! So we recommend that the hosts’ budget notwithstanding while purchasing dishes or dinnerware, it would be best to buy in sets and ensure that there are extra plates, bowls, and mugs in case a guest needs it.
With dishes, in particular, we suggest that you buy dinnerware sets in large enough numbers to suit the kitchen of the Airbnb in question. The four-piece set includes four tidbit bowls which are wide and deep, that may also double up for guests as plates or utensils to have soup or store sauces in.
This set alone would probably not be enough if the Airbnb property can host a more significant number of guests at any single time but can be purchased in combination with other essentials. The Corell 18-piece set covers guests’ needs ranging from everyday meals to special occasions and can serve six people at a time.
They are available on Amazon and have received positive ratings and reviews thanks to its functionality, in addition to the plates being chip-resistant thanks to the triple-layer durable glass, which is lightweight and easy to handle. This set from AmazonBasics comes at a relative, affordable price and is available on Amazon with solid ratings and reviews.
Porcelain tends to look and feel better than plastic dishes and would add an element of style to any kitchen. Another option for hosts, from Amazon Basics, is a smaller 16-piece kitchen dinnerware set with a wider variety.
Like the others on this list, this set has received positive reviews on Amazon for its functionality, convenience, affordability, and durability. What is important to note with this set and most others available on Amazon, is that they allow hosts to add additional options at extra cost.
For example, in addition to this 16-piece set, you may also buy cutlery such as spoons, forks, and knives or cooking utensils, which might be a good idea for hosts who want to save time and money. The Zen Buffet ware collection by manufacturer, Gibson Home, is available on Amazon as a 12-piece set, which is suitable to serve a dinner for four people.
This set sticks out from the rest thanks to their unique design and large surfaces to help add a touch of style to the great food being served, making it an excellent option for Airbnb kitchens with guests who take the time to cook a full meal for their families while on vacation! Made of classic porcelain, this set is dishwasher and microwave friendly while also being lightweight and durable for easy handling and daily use.
As with any purchases for your Airbnb, it is best to keep specific parameters in mind while deciding, such as cost, durability, functionality, and aesthetics. The common theme we heard was that guests expect any rental to be as well-equipped as the typical hotel room.
Having new, high-quality towels, a good mattress, a nice coffee setup, and more can make the difference between a happy guest and a meh review. Whether you’re a brand-new Airbnb host or looking to improve your VRB or Hideaway reviews, dressing up your rental with the right supplies is crucial to pleasing your guests and keeping your calendar filled with new visitors.
That means a good mattress, soft sheets, new pillows, and quality bedding, even in a budget rental. Guests won’t be impressed if you offer the leftover pillows and sheets you don’t like using in your own home.
Photo: Jeremy Pacific you need a good guest bed, we recommend the Tuft & Needle foam mattress, which is comfortable, reasonably priced, and easy and affordable to have delivered. It costs $200 to $300 less than our other picks from Lees and Casper, comes with bed-in-a-box delivery and setup, and has a 1,000-pound weight tolerance.
Airbnb host Libby Sent bought a brand-new Tuft & Needle mattress for her basement rental in the Museum District in Richmond, Virginia, and it’s working out just fine. Our testers found that the Nest is one of the most comfortable shredded-foam pillows we tested, and it doesn’t have a persistent problem with smelly foam.
There’s an obvious reason hotels tend to make their beds with four pillows: Many people want to sleep with more than one. Photo: Michael HessionOnce you’ve invested in a new mattress and pillows, you’ll want to protect them from bugs and spills.
After 17 hours interviewing entomologists, allergists, and exterminators, as well as researching and testing 17 mattress and pillow encasement, we’re confident that the Protect-A-Bed Allergic Smooth Mattress Encasement and Pillow Protectors are the best for shielding your bed from bedbugs and dust mites, and they’ll block liquid spills, as well. Both have especially strong seams, come in many sizes to ensure a good fit, and will likely extend the life of your pillows and mattress.
It has sewn-through construction, as opposed to baffles, but the stitching extends all the way to the edges of the shell, which helps keep the down in place. This comforter’s 30 ounces of fill means it’s probably too warm for year-round use, but Target does sell a medium-weight version that may be more versatile.
If you prefer to avoid down and are looking for a reasonably priced pick, you’ll do well with the Utopia Bedding Queen Comforter Duvet Insert. We found the Utopia to be better at regulating heat than the higher-priced down-alternative comforters we tried, and its outer shell was softer than many of the competitors’.
For maximum luxury, the cloud like Feathered Friends Bavarian Medium 700 has 3 inches of loft, is made of ethical down, and should last for 30 years, more than twice as long as the typical down comforter. The cover’s crisp feel and look reminded our testers of the bedding you might find at a nice hotel.
Good-quality towels, a hair dryer, and a clean shower liner are the minimum that guests require in a rental bathroom. Soft, new, matching towels help make even the most basic bathroom feel inviting.
After roughly 115 hours of research and testing, the Front gate Resort Cotton Towels consistently ranked very high for softness and comfort. More than one set may make sense for hosts who see rapid turnover (“If you have clients back to back, you don’t have time to get to the fluff and fold,” said Airbnb super host Nicole Policicchio), as may a darker-colored towel, which won’t reveal stains as readily.
This hair dryer is lightweight and has a long cord, and it tied for blowing the hottest and fastest air among the models we tested. If a blow-out is part of your guests’ regular morning routine, they won’t want to be away from home without a hair dryer.
Having one in your rental is so helpful to guests that it can make you an average of $10 more per night, Airbnb co-founder Nathan Blecharczyk has said. After more than 20 hours of research and dozens of blow-dry sessions, we found our favorite hair dryer in the Rusk W8less.
Most houseguests probably don’t judge too harshly when they notice a little mildew or film on the bottom of a curtain in a friend’s shower. Replacing that periodic purchase with a washable polyester liner saves money over the long run.
Supplying some small kitchen appliances and glassware will ensure guests have all they need for basic meal prep. Photo: Sarah KobosAccording to the rental hosts we spoke with, a high-quality coffee setup is almost as important as good bedding and towels in making guests happy.
It’s small enough to fit under a desk, but it has enough space to hold some lunches or a few dozen canned drinks. It has a full-width freezer compartment, individual can holster, movable glass shelves, and an affordable asking price, to boot.
Photo: Michael Session Whether your guests want to boil water for coffee, tea, or even instant soup, an electric kettle allows them to do so fast, and it’s a great option if your rental doesn’t have a stove top. This 1.7-liter model is ideal for brewing myriad teas, making pour-over coffee, or simply boiling water for instant oatmeal.
Its winning combination of speed, temperature accuracy, and ease of use allowed it to beat out the other electric kettles we tested. When your guests want to heat water for coffee or warm up last night’s leftovers, they’ll appreciate a simple-to-use microwave that won’t risk a meltdown.
Its midsize design can hold up to a 9-inch square casserole dish, which is a suitable size for most homes. In our testing we found it provides consistent results when heating up a variety of foods and beverages.
It includes all the typical preset programs, as well as the crucial add-30-seconds button that helps with more precise heating results. The two-slot Cuisinart is also one of the tiniest, most attractive toasters we tested, making it ideal for your rental guests.
We love it for its strong baking performance, compact size, reasonable price, and ability to quickly heat leftovers and frozen snacks. Many rental spaces are located in basements or outbuildings that may have specific heating and access issues.
If you simply want to stow a spare key so that guests can let themselves in if you’re not around, our testing has determined that the Kidd Accession Karate is hands down the best wall-mounted lockbox available. It’s the only affordable lockbox with a combination dial, which our professional locksmith testers found much more difficult to pick than the wheel-style or push-button locks you see from the competition.
If you prefer to forgo actual keys, have a clientele that will appreciate accessing your space from their phone, or even want the lights, music, and AC to kick on when your guests arrive, you should choose a smart lock like the Yale Assure SL Connected by August or the Silage Sense. We’ve spent dozens of hours over several years researching, testing, and living with fans in an overheated house and measuring air-blowing output with equipment from the HVAC industry, and we think the Tornado 630 Medium Air Circulatory is the best room fan for most people.
If the signal from your existing router doesn’t reach into your rental unit, you may need an extender like the TP-Link’s RE220. After more than 30 hours of research, we determined that this model offered the best combination of range, speed, portability, and physical connections of the extenders we tested.
It has the best smart features of any small TV we’ve tested plus good picture quality and it saves you the $50-plus that an external Roku box would cost. You should know, though, that the Chromecast platform doesn’t support video from Amazon, a shortcoming that caused us to eliminate it from top-pick contention in our review of the best media streamers.
Airbnb recommends that hosts provide a fire extinguisher, a smoke alarm, and a carbon monoxide detector. This extinguisher can put out common combustibles such as fire, wood, and paper, as well as flaming liquids like gasoline and oil.
The extinguishing agent is nonconductive, so it can also handle electrically energized fires, like a burning appliance. The PRO5 has the equivalent of 3¾ gallons of water and, in the hands of a professional, has a coverage of 40 square feet; this exceeds the minimum size recommendation of the National Fire Protection Association. We believe the best smoke alarm is the First Alert SA511CN2-1st Smoke Alarm with Voice Location.
Guests will also appreciate basics like a reliable corkscrew, a cutting board, and maybe a portable burner and nonstick pan even in a one-room rental. Small things make a difference in guest experience, said Airbnb super hosts like Nicole Policicchio.
Her rental kitchen is stocked with pantry staples, and she’ll often leave beer or champagne in the fridge, depending on the profile of her guests. When Policicchio and her boyfriend bought their rental condo, the kitchen cabinets were stacked with dishware and glasses.
But Policicchio wanted to start from scratch, with “really durable, beautiful, colorful” dishware and cooking tools, including a brand-new combo juicer and blender. Sent, who has a toddler and lives right above the apartment she rents, equips the space with a white noise machine.
Before she became an Airbnb host, one LA renter had no ice cube trays in her one-bedroom apartment in Los Angeles’s Los Felix neighborhood (after an early guest pointed out the omission, the host, who prefers to remain anonymous since her landlord doesn't know she Airbnb, stocked up). You could also consider offering outdoor equipment, like beach gear and bikes, to help guests enjoy your area with less hassle and expense.
