What Guest Bed Should I Buy?

Whether you need a guest bed for visits from friends and family or are hosting paying guests over an extended period, we have the perfect bed for you. Buying a guest bed for your home is about choosing a bed that not only suits your visitor's needs but also is convenient for your space size, complements your décor, and is within your budget.

Our guide will help you choose the right product to accommodate your house guests in style, comfort and convinence.

Guest Bed Solutions for Spare Bedrooms

If you have the luxury of a spare bedroom and space, you have pretty much the freedom to choose from our whole range of guest beds. You'll just need to choose a colour that matches your wall colour.

One of the best guest beds from our collection due to its versatility is our Beige Guest Divan Base. It has a pull-out trundle that can be supported by folding legs so that the second mattress is the same height as the first, creating the equivalent of a super king when used together. The extra mattress means you'll be able to accommodate more than one guest. When it's not in use, it's the same size as a single bed, so it won't take up much floor space if you need to use your spare room for another purpose such as an office.

Comfy Guest beds for Small Spaces

When space is limited in your home, you'll need to be clever with your choice of bed for your visitors. You don't want to take up too much room with a bed as it will not be utilised every night. That’s why a sofa bed is the perfect type of guest bed for small spaces.

You can place them in your living space to use as an everyday sofa. And, when you have your family or friends around to stay, you can use it as a comfortable sleep space. Don't invite the whole family to visit; however, most of our sofa beds can sleep two people. There are colours available such as grey, navy blue and ivory for the modern minimalist. And, bright colours including orange, green and pink for the bold and extravagant.

Kids Guest Bed Ideas

Sleepovers are a wonderful way for children to bond and make new friends, but what if you don't have enough beds for your kids' guests? And how can you appease small children with big expectations when they want their own big-kid bed? Don't worry! Inflatable air beds are the smart solution, and we've got some of the best ideas for kids. Explore our fun designs, from cars to unicorns to teddy bears – we're sure any child will love them.

Budget Guest Beds with Mattresses

When your budget is tight, and you need to be smart with your money, but have guests come to stay every week, think bed and mattress sets. Bundle deals will allow you to save pennies and have the snuggest guest bed. You'll need floor space to accommodate a bed, but there are space-efficient sizes available:

  • Single = W 90cm (3’0”) x L 190cm (6’3”)
  • Small Double = W 120cm (4’0”) x L 190cm (6’3”)
  • Double = W 135cm (4’6”) x L 190 (3’0”)

How to Make a Guest Bed

Are you having guests over for a night (or five!) and wondering how to make them feel at home? Making sure that the bed is comfy, cosy and perfectly pulled together will help you create a restful place that your guests will love. Here are our top tips on how to make a guest bed.

  • Go for textures and natural cotton materials that look and feel luxurious.
  • Choose blankets, throws, and cushions in white, cream or grey tones to minimise creasing.
  • Faux fur goes down very well and is extra snuggly!
  • Make sure there is room for guests to put their clothes away; give them drawers and space in your wardrobe if possible.
  • Remember that towels are a must. If you can match them with the rest of the décor, it will give your guests a real treat.
  • Don't forget about the water - leave a bottle or glasses conveniently beside the bed, so guests needn't get thirsty in the night or jump out of bed early on a cold morning.
