The guest room you are having can be a physical room or a futon in your living room. Whichever room you choose, it should be a welcoming space. One welcoming factor is the bed. After making a decision regarding a few factors which you can read below, you can choose the perfect bed for the guest room.
- Before you choose your favorite bed, determine the space
- Let your decision be depending on how often you host guests
- Decide if you would like to use the space only as a guest room
Before you choose your favorite bed, determine the space
We recommend to first walk through your house and decide which space will be the guestroom instead of doing the opposite. This way you can choose the bed depending on the size of the room. Especially when you do not have a lot of excess space, do not switch order.
Let your decision be depending on how often you host guests
Depending on the average duration and frequency guests are coming over, you can make a better choice regarding the bed. If guests come over 4 times per year and for a short stay, a smaller bed or a futon can be suitable. This way you can keep the room functional. If you expect guests to come over often and stay for a longer period, a bed that is the focal point of the room suits you.
Decide if you would like to use the space only as a guest room
If you have plenty of space available in your house, you can choose to keep it only as a guest room. In this case, you can opt for a large-sized bed, which will be the focal point of the room. If you do not have excess space, you probably would like to use the guest room for other activities as well. In this scenario, it is better to go for a smaller bed or a futon.
