It’s stressful, but it can also be fun to have house guests. Let’s talk about how to maximize the space you have so it will be as comfortable as possible for you and your visitors. We’d like to help you get the most for the money, too.
First off, luxury hotels focus on one key feature: the bed. If you take time to read hotel reviews, you’ll see this point mentioned over and over. Most people prefer a medium-firm mattress. This gives them good spinal support without putting too much pressure on joints.
But perhaps you don’t have a spare bedroom. In that case, you can get a lot of mileage from a hideaway sofa bed. Don’t be afraid to shop for a couch that suits your décor. Even if the included mattress is junk, it’s inexpensive and easy to replace it.
However, not everyone has room for a full-size sofa. That’s not a problem because innovative designers have created pull-out beds concealed inside loveseats and even armchairs. Also, getting one of these makes it easy for the kids to have sleepovers.
Next, pillows are very important. But unless you have the same people visiting you regularly, you probably don’t know what kind they need. For the most bang for the buck, purchase pillows for combination sleepers. That way, side and back sleepers are equally happy.
Then, there are other little details that will make your guests’ sleeping space more enjoyable. Leave them extra blankets or a fan, depending on the season. Place bottled water and the Wi-Fi password where they’ll see them. Then make some sort of nightlight available if they choose to use it.
In conclusion, if you help your friends and family sleep better at your home, the visit will be much more enjoyable for everyone.
