When choosing a bed for a Guests bedroom a number of factors must be taken into account. One of the first things to consider and take into consideration is the size of the bedroom. In many cases the Guest bedroom is usually smaller than many other bedrooms in the household. This will then decide to a certain degree the size of the bed that can be accommodated. If you choose a bed that is too wide and does not give any room each side of the bed, then it will not only make it difficult to change the bedclothes, but also to adequately clean around and under the bed.
When choosing a bed for the Guest bedroom it is important to have access to the bed from the side of the bed, if the bed is too large it would mean climbing over the bed which is not very welcoming. It is also better if there is space beside the Head of the bed so that a bedside cabinet or table can be incorporated. Many people like to have a bedside light that they can switch off or on whilst in bed. Also many people like to have a glass of water beside the bed in case they wake up in the night thirsty.
Another factor in choosing a bed for the Guest room knows the type of Guest you usually have to stay. If it is only single people you have staying overnight, then a single bed would be appropriate. Even with a single bed it is always best to try and choose a bed as big as possible. A 3ft. single bed is much better than a 2ft. 6” bed. Again this will depend on the size of the bedroom.
If you hope to have couples staying with you then you will have to provide a double bed or two single beds. Two single beds will take up a lot more room than a double bed and therefore the size of the bedroom again will play a major part in deciding if two beds can fit comfortably.
Most Guest rooms that are used to accommodate couples have a double bed. There are many sizes of double beds ranging from the 4 ft. double up to a King size bed. It is not usually necessary to provide a very large bed in the Guest bedroom and a 4 ft. or 4 ft.6” bed is generally sufficient.
The next important factor in choosing a Guest bed is deciding the type of bedstead that will look nice in the Guest bedroom. Even though it is “only” the Guest bedroom it is very important that it looks attractive and welcoming. It must be remembered that your Guests have in all probability, have just left their own bedroom which they are proud of, therefore to put them into a bedroom that is not welcoming will not make them feel comfortable. It is generally the case that the Guest bedroom you have given them will be much smaller than what they are used to in their own home.
When deciding on how you will furnish your Guest bedroom try and remember that you should make it as welcoming and comfortable as possible. To ensure this comfort always think about what the Guest will be sleeping on. The mattress is the most important part of the bed. It should give support and comfort to ensure your Guests will have a perfect night’s sleep.
