Marie Kondo-Inspired AirBnB Cleaning: Sparking Joy in Every Corner

Marie Kondo-Inspired AirBnB Cleaning: Sparking Joy in Every Corner

The Marie Kondo method of cleaning and organising, known for its emphasis on decluttering and keeping only items that “spark joy”, can greatly enhance the guest experience in your AirBnB property. By applying the principles of decluttering and adopting a minimalist approach, you can create a space that not only looks clean, but also feels inviting and rejuvenating. Here’s how to incorporate Marie Kondo’s philosophy into your AirBnB cleaning routine:

1. Start with intention: Before you start cleaning, set a clear intention for the space. Focus on creating an environment that promotes relaxation and positive energy for your guests.

2. Tackle categories: Follow the Marie Kondo method of decluttering by tackling specific categories such as linens, decor and kitchen items. Only keep items that are functional and bring joy.

3. Visualise the end result: Imagine how you want the room to look and feel after cleaning. Visualise the welcoming atmosphere you’d like to create for your guests.

4. The joy test: Hold each item in your hands and ask yourself if it really brings you joy. If not, consider donating or throwing it away to create a clutter-free environment.

5. Create serene spaces: Organise each area with a focus on simplicity and purpose. Arrange furniture and decorations in a way that promotes harmony and serenity.

6. Mindful cleaning: When cleaning, be fully present and mindful. Wipe surfaces, vacuum and dust mindfully, appreciating the act of caring for your space.

7. Embrace minimalism: Avoid over-decorating or cluttering spaces with excessive decorations. Take a minimalist approach that allows each item to stand out and contribute to the overall ambience.

8. Prioritise quality over quantity: Invest in quality bedding, towels and furnishings that not only look good but can withstand regular use and cleaning.

9. Maintain a happy atmosphere: Visit your AirBnB property regularly to ensure it maintains its sense of joy and order. Address any clutter or disorder immediately.

10. Guest experience: By applying the Marie Kondo method to your AirBnB, you’ll offer guests a calm, uncluttered space where they can relax and rejuvenate. A tidy space contributes to their overall well-being.

Incorporating the Marie Kondo philosophy into your AirBnB cleaning routine goes beyond superficial tidiness; it’s about creating an environment that resonates with guests on a deeper level. When guests walk into a space that’s intentionally curated and clutter-free, they feel a sense of calm and joy that adds an extra layer of enjoyment to their stay.
