Creating Unique Airbnb Design With Custom Signs



In this PWD Academy lesson, we’re going to talk about custom signs for your Airbnb or Boutique Hotel.

Custom signs can greatly enhance the appeal and marketability of your short-term rental, making your space more distinctive and attractive to guests. Additionally, there's always a chance that a guest will snap a picture of your sign and post it on social media, providing you with free advertising!

First Things First – Let’s Talk About Neon.

Neon signs are divisive; people either love them or hate them.

We’ve had clients who absolutely must have a neon sign, and others who outright refuse to consider them.

While neon signs may seem over-saturated on Instagram highlight reels, they are still relatively rare in the Airbnb and Short-Term Rental space. From a design and ROI standpoint, it still makes sense to include neon signs in your property because they are unique and frankly, people like them. They will help you stand apart from the rest.

Still Not Convinced on The Neon Signs?

We’ve got you covered with some other options:

Acrylic Signs: 
This material gives a high-end, luxe vibe, especially when backlit! It’s great for modern spaces, and you can find reasonably priced options if you're working on a tight budget. 

Metal Signs:

Metal signs are more durable compared to acrylic and give off a very clean, simple vibe. They suit rustic properties very well and are a great option for A-frames, cabins, etc.

 Wood Signs:

Wood is classic and timeless. These signs will definitely last in your property and look great when styled correctly. However, they may be more expensive than the other two options. 


 In conclusion, custom signs are a fantastic way to enhance the allure and marketing of your short-term rental, making your space more memorable and appealing to guests. Regardless of your budget, there are many options available to achieve your desired look and strengthen your property's branding.
