How to choose the best guest beds

Whether it’s just at Christmas or every other weekend, having guests over to stay means you need to provide them with a great night’s sleep. Guest beds need to be cosy, welcoming, and most importantly, comfortable. If you only have the occasional guest, then choosing a guest bed that folds away makes more sense.

This means that the guest room can be used for other activities when you don’t have people over to stay, such as a home gym or office. However, if you regularly have family or friends staying with you, setting up a guest bedroom with all the comforts of home is a better idea. If you still need to store clothes, linen or other items then choose guest beds with storage such as an ottoman or divan. They’re affordable and offer plenty of comfort as well as being practical.  

The size of the guest bed you choose will depend on the number of people staying. If you have couples over to visit, then a small double or standard double bed will be a perfect choice. If your kids love a sleepover then a single bed or single with a trundle are flexible and clever options.  

Buy your guest beds from MattressNextDay and you can benefit from fast, free delivery nationwide, and our useful mattress recycling service that takes the hassle out of replacing your guest mattress.

What is a guest bed?

Answering the prayers of home occupants who frequently house family and friends, guest beds provide a temporary sleeping space. No need to panic when couples come to stay, as double guest beds are equally as common as their single counterparts. 

Quite the opposite of a rough sleep on the sofa, these comfortable beds are very hospitable and stylish too. Foldaway guest beds are a popular choice for accommodating guests, and it’s easy to see why.

What are the benefits of guest beds?

Never get caught out by an unexpected guest again with the addition of a guest bed. Offering extra sleeping space, foldaway guest beds can be placed in spare bedrooms, or in some cases folded away until they’re called into action. 

Folding beds are a fantastic space-saving solution, negating the need to create a new room for guests. Trendy dual-function guest beds are a great way to create a sleeping space without intruding on your interior design.

The enhanced comfort offered by guest beds with mattresses makes them a popular choice, eliminating uncomfortable visits for your friends and family. With single guest beds available for children and solo occupants, to a guest bed with a trundle that reveals a hidden extra bed, there are a plethora of options to achieve maximum comfort.

Day beds are a common choice due to their versatility. This type of dual-function guest bed is suited to rooms such as home offices, with a visually appealing style that seamlessly blends in with all interior designs.

What are the advantages of a guest bed over a sofa bed?

Every home needs space for a guest or two. Guest beds and sofa beds are two of the most popular styles of spare beds for visitors, due to their adaptability and stylish nature. But which should you choose? If you’re looking for a folding bed that can pull double duty as a storage device, a guest bed benefits from its multi-functional design.

Perfect for maximising floor space and creating a cosy atmosphere, folding guest beds are less visible than sofa beds. While sofa beds are often the centrepiece of a room, the inconspicuous design of a guest bed frame makes it a spare room must-have. Also great for kids, the pull-out under-bed of a trundle guest bed offers more space than a sofa bed, while remaining equally space-efficient.

What are the differences between a sofa bed and a trundle bed?

While sofa beds are a trendy and versatile style, guest beds feature widely in spare bedrooms and offices. Our range of guest beds comes with or without under-bed trundles. If you’re looking to maximise storage space and utilise multi-functional pieces of bedroom furniture, a trundle bed is essential.

Perfect for creating additional space for sleeping out of nowhere, certain trundle beds store an additional sleeping space underneath the bed frame. This is incredibly useful when housing multiple guests, offering two beds in one. Rather than housing a bed, some trundles feature deep storage shelves that pull out from beneath the bed frame, this hidden storage compartment is great for keeping your room free of clutter.

Trundle beds help to create a free and spacious environment for your guests, improving their quality of sleep and overall restfulness.

What mattresses are suitable for guest beds with trundles?

Providing maximum comfort and taking up minimum space, guest beds with trundles require single-bed mattresses. Our 3ft single mattress range features memory foam, pocket sprung, latex, and special orthopaedic variations. Factor in who you’re catering for when choosing the best mattress for your guest bed.

Our comprehensive range boasts mattresses in varying comfort grades and thicknesses. For those on the fence, a mattress with medium firmness will provide a good night’s sleep to the average person.

Extra bedding is another key consideration when kitting out a trundle guest bed. While accommodating last-minute guests may seem like a nightmare, MattressNextDay is on hand to make your friends and family’s stay run like a dream.

What styles and colours of guest beds are popular?

Offering a clean and striking design, white guest beds are a modern and stylish option. A white-painted wood guest bed is popular as it can be contrasted with vibrant colours to add a layer of depth and character to your spare room.

Complementing a wide range of textures and fabrics, white wooden guest beds can underline the interior design of the rest of the room, ensuring practicality as well as a trendy touch. Our offerings comprise sturdy white solid wood bed frames with shelves, slats, and optional trundles. Other popular designs include divan guest beds, guest sofa beds and chair beds.
