The holiday season is all about spending time with your loved ones. Finding the best mattress for your guest room can make for a happier, more comfortable stay for both you and your guests. In today’s blog, the furniture experts at Star Furniture discuss how to choose a mattress and bed for your guest room.

Consider Who Will Be Using Your Guest Room

Before you choose a mattress or guest bed, you’ll first want to consider who you intend to host and for how long. While a daybed with a trundle might work perfectly for kids’ sleepovers, your parents might have mobility needs that require a certain style of bed or mattress. You won’t always know what the next few years hold but considering the types of guests you’ll likely have can help you decide on the best bed for your guest room.

Consider the Length of Their Stay

Some guests, like retired grandparents, might stay for weeks at a time, several times per year, while your friend from college might only stop by for one long weekend a year. Having the best guest mattress and bed might not be as important if you’re entertaining people sporadically and for short amounts of time. But if you have long-term guests you might want to look for a higher quality guest mattress and bed to keep them happy and comfortable throughout their stay.

Consider the Other Purposes Your Guest Room Serves

Not all of us have the space for a dedicated guest room, and even if we do, we might end up using it in different ways throughout the year. If you have a combination home office guest bedroom that you use daily, for example, you might end up needing a smaller guest bed or mattress to accommodate your workspace. While creating a comfortable space for your guests is important, you don’t want it to be at the expense of your daily life.

Consider the Size of Your Guest Room

In addition to considering the other purposes your guest room serves, you’ll need to remember that the best bed size for your guest room will depend on the size of the room. Even if you have long-term guests staying with you, a larger mattress won’t do them any good if it won’t fit into the room. And a bed that takes up the majority of the floor space in a room could prevent you from meeting your guests’ other needs if there isn’t space for seating or for their luggage.
