How to spruce up your accommodation for less than $10

Improving and sprucing up your accommodation doesn’t always come cheap. From repairs to paint, the bill of home improvement can add up! We’ve just jotted down some simple purchases you can make to make your guest’s stay a little more homely.

Plants and greenery

Getting some plants will give your property a fresh and lively feel. Some simple and inexpensive ways to do this is to purchase some small succulents or mini plants in the middle of the coffee table or on the bedside table. If you want to take it a step even further, you could even purchase some mini herb pots for your kitchen you your guests can garnish any of the creations that they whip up in your kitchen!

Cutlery and Crockery

Cutlery sets and small kitchenware go a long way for guests! You can often find cutlery for two dollars or under per piece or find a whole set for an affordable price. This is great for when your guests want to cook up a simple meal or brew a cup of coffee in the morning. At a minimum, you should at least have a set of drinking glasses in case your guests get thirsty!


Candles are a simple way to add a luxurious touch to your property. This will help set the ambiance of your property and create a relaxing atmosphere. Scattering a few candles around your place will make your home cozy and inviting. After a long day of travelling or exploring, your guests will appreciate this small touch and will be able to be soothed after a long day

Wall Hooks

Hooks can make a plain and unloved wall go a long way. You can use them to hang up some simple frames for décor or your guests can use them to hang their coats! Whether you drill some into the wall or purchase some adhesive hooks, these will have multiple uses in your home.


Whether you grab some fresh smelling hand soap or a mini set of shampoo and conditioner, your guest will appreciate the small gesture when they visit your home! These sets are also inexpensive and you can often find a mini set of toiletries for just a couple of bucks.

A small portable light

Having a small light besides the bedside table or in the bathroom is useful for when your guest is wandering around at night. Some guests like to read before bed or sleep with the light on so this will be extremely useful for them! This might prevent guests running into furniture or tripping on their bathroom trip in the middle of the night

Towels and linen

Guests forget towels from time to time so this is a small way to make the guest’s stay extraordinary. After a long day, all they want to do is hop into the shower and go to bed. Having some spare fluffy towels and soft bed sheets for a good night’s rest is often all a traveler needs for a great stay!

A mirror

Whether they are getting dressed or applying their makeup, there must be at least one mirror in your home! Whether your guests are adjusting their makeup or checking themselves out on the way out the door, a mirror is a simple inexpensive way to add value to your accommodation. Preferably, guests love to have a full length mirror, but any mirror will do!
