In life, we often find ourselves opening up our homes to house guests.

May it be those that we love deeply, good friends or those that are welcomed in because they just need a place to stay. Whatever your reason for finding yourself with house guests, making them feel welcomed should be a fundamental principle of any home.

A guest bed should be one that demonstrates both comfort and support. What is more welcoming than a bed that throws out an invitation from the moment you set eyes on it.

Most guests that come into your home are taking a break from the ordinary of their everyday life – so no doubt they are looking for a place to relax and embrace the freedom of being away from the normal. This gives you a wonderful opportunity to show off and lavish your guests with the effort that they deserve.

Guest Beds

Guest beds are a practical solution with so many options, inflatable, folding, pull out and of course a good old trust worthy divan. Whatever type of guest bed, they are all designed with one purpose in mind, to take up as little space as possible when it is not in use.

Alas, choosing your guest bed is an important decision with many factors that you have to take in to account. What type of bed are you interested in? What is your price range? How often do you have guests?

There are many different choices to make to ensure that your guest is able to get the best night’s sleep possible.


If you are looking for a proper mattress as opposed to an inflatable bed, shop for the best value not the lowest price. The better the construction, the better the support and comfort offered and the longer the bed will last. This is key for both normal mattresses and for folding guest beds. The quality that is available for folding beds is simply stunning and definitely worth investing in.


Another thing to be aware of when choosing the perfect bed for your beloved house guests is if they have allergies. There are mattresses specifically designed with anti-allergy properties. If you have pets make sure their hair is kept away from the guest’s room or bedding. This is something worth giving thought to, you never know who may pop in for an overnight stay.

If you have opted for a very comfortable inflatable bed, you can also purchase specific anti-allergy bedding for your guests.

Special touches

Ensuring that your guests have the most pleasant stay does not just stop at how comfortable their mattress is, it is all about the full package. Headboards provide a nice homely touch to any guest bed, not only is it a practical way to keep your pillows under control, but very pleasing to the eye. Even now, some inflatable beds are available with a headboard!

To conclude, do not compromise on quality when it comes to providing the best comfort for your guests. Ensure that a visit to your home is one worth telling their friends about.
