We don’t like to think about it too early at Dreams HQ, but Christmas is just around the corner – and if you’ve got guests coming to stay, then it’s important to start thinking about what you’re going to do with them when they arrive in their hordes.
For those of us with small houses or not much space, it’s essential to have a space-saving solution that will keep your guests in comfort without taking up too much room the rest of the year. Sofa beds, guest beds and foldaway mattresses are all great ways to cater for a number of guests, without taking up lots and lots of space.
Sofa beds are one of the most versatile and space-saving ways to make sure your Christmas guests are looked after while still providing valuable seating for you the rest of the year. Our Dallas Sofa Bed in Duck Egg Blue is a contemporary and modern-looking sofa bed that would work well in a teenager’s bedroom or a study; it pulls out to provide a comfortable double bed with a luxurious cover available in a number of colours.
The Houston Sofa Bed in Chocolate is a good alternative and suitable for more traditional houses, thanks to the wooden finish and clean design. It even comes with its own magazine racks for those guests who like to catch up on all the latest celebrity gossip! Or how about the comfy and cosy Chester Sofa Bed? This classic sofa bed design features neutral tones, fabric upholstery, and a comfortable double bed that unfolds using a simple two-fold mechanism. With bold contrasting cushions, it’ll brighten up any living room or spare bedroom.
Another type of space-saving bed is the guest bed, where a single bed expands to become a double or similar mechanism. This is perfect if you often have guests to stay, or over the Christmas period you’re having a number of guests visiting; this way you can cater for Granny as well as Aunt and Uncle – not to mention a whole host of friends! The Luna Bedstead is a single folding bed that is ideal for small spaces, and can be used in conjunction with another bedstead to create a double bed. This versatile, comfortable bed even has a built-in headboard that double as a shelf when the bed is not in use. The Twilight Guest Bed is another good option if you have the luxury of a spare room. This generously proportioned single guest bed has a separate sliding mattress underneath, providing extra space for more than one guest with the same level of comfort.
How will you be looking after your guests this Christmas season?
