Christmas is that special time of year for getting together with friends, family and loved ones to celebrate the magic that December brings. If you play host, there’s a certain amount of pressure that comes with creating the perfect Christmas for your guests. With many hosting considerations, providing space for guests over the festive period is a pressing point for many households.

Thankfully, that’s what a guest bed is specifically designed to do. But what is it really and which Guest Bed is the right fit for you? Let’s take a closer look…

A guest bed is a unique bed that is often viewed as a single with pull out trundle option. The beauty of a guest bed is it can be used as a normal day to day bed, with a secondary bed available when needed. Take for example the wonderfully versatile contemporary Kids Locker Bed by Woood. This modern single bed encapsulates Danish furniture perfectly, with a compact frame that houses two single beds in one design.

Extra Space for the Kids

Family comes in all shapes and sizes and Christmas can be a lot to contend with when it comes to finding extra bed space for little ones. But it’s easier than you think to find a place for all the additional little members who may be gracing you with their adorable presence.

Guest Beds are a must when it comes to that special time of year. If you already have a few chicks in the nest, then the Flexa Nordic Kids House Bed is a wonderful bed with pull-out trundle option. The white house frame will lend itself to the imagination of any kiddie who dreams big. Once additional mini guests arrive, it transforms into a wonderful bed made for two.

Putting up the Parents

Whether it’s Granny with her secret roast potato recipe or grandad with his perfect turkey carving skills, grandparents are often the lynchpin come Christmas day. So, if you have the parents or in-laws making their way over for Christmas, be sure to put them up like family royalty.

The Oeuf Sparrow Single Bed with Trundle is the kind of guest bed parents love. Made from high quality solid birch and Baltic birch plywood, this modern bed provides a supportive frame for guests. The Oeuf Sparrow Single Bed has a pull-out trundle to turn one single into two. Meaning the head of the family, can sleep soundly in their own bed compartments.

Sibling rivalry

They might have stolen your barbie growing up or filled your Christmas stocking with coal from the fire, but siblings hold a special place at the Christmas dinner table. Though it might be funny to crack out the airbed and get them back for the countless years of pranks, Christmas is all about letting bygones be bygones.

Why not create some nostalgia with a bed frame that reminds them about growing up in a shared bedroom? The Pino High Sleeper with sofa bed features a bed on top and a pull out sofa bed underneath. Nothing brings back memories of the best sleepovers like a sofa bed!
