Choosing the Right Bed for the Guest Room

Isn’t it wonderful when friends and family visit you, whatever the occasion? You can catch up on good times, entertain and create countless happy memories during their stay.

However, many people’s initial excitement can soon turn to worry. They fear their guest room isn’t big enough or may be embarrassed about their current guest bed.

This doesn’t have to be the case when our fabulous (yes I’m slightly biase) emporium has many suitable guest beds – gorgeous and practical – that’ll impress your visitors. But we warn you, they might never want to leave!

Here, we’ll show you guest beds, daybeds and storage beds that are perfect for your guest room.

1. Practical Scandi

Vox Nature Bed with Slatted Headboard


Your guests will feel right at home in this Scandi chic bed from Vox – it features a stylish slanted headboard that has several benefits.

Its angle makes reading in bed an enjoyable experience, perfect for when guests bring the ‘must read’ holiday paperback everyone has been talking about. Offer five-star hospitality by bringing them breakfast in bed – the headboard will support them as they sit up to eat.

Thoughtful gestures aside, the Nature bed will also grant your guest room extra style points with its sleek lines and slatted headboard. We bring this design in Small Double, Double, King or Superking sizes, so you can choose the right fit for the space.

2. Create an Inviting Retreat

Pino White Four Poster Double Bed

More than just a guest bed, this dreamy Scandinavian pine bed looks like it’s straight out of a magazine. Perfect for visiting couples, we think the optional canopy (sold separately) will give them a romantic retreat after a busy day.

Add a sumptuous mattress (not included), dress the bed in layers of ultra-soft bamboo bedding, before artfully arranging designer scatter cushions and you’ll show your guests they’re welcome in your home.

We think you’ll adore the fuss-free aesthetic of the crisp white bed frame – ‘at home’ in any luxury accommodation. Just be sure to bookmark this bed’s product page, as you may want to replicate the ‘look’ in your own bedroom.

3. Make the ‘Smart’ Choice

Koble Freya Smart Ottoman Bed with Speakers & Wireless Charging

Luxurious and timeless, this Ottoman bed is an impressive addition to any guest bedroom given its gold-plated feet and fully upholstered velvet frame. You’ll love the curved headboard that creates a feeling of grandeur.

More than just a pretty face, this beautiful Koble bed houses two wireless charging pockets for compatible smartphones, premium Bluetooth speakers and a subwoofer within the headboard. Bathing your guests in sound, they’re bound to drift-off feeling relaxed (and impressed!). Unsure whether their phones are geared to wireless charging? Side USB points mean all phones can be charged overnight.

Hydraulic pistons help you make the most of this Double/Kingsize bed’s footprint too. You can now store spare bedding and everyday clutter under the sprung slatted base before they arrive.

4. Maximise the Available Space

Ollie Triple Bunk Bed by Flair Furnishings

Those with families may wish they had more than one guest room to accommodate everyone. Yet, you no longer need to offer kids the sofa, thanks to this clever triple bunk bed from Flair Furnishings. It certainly makes the most of the vertical space.

With room to fit parents and their little one above in the top bunk, kids will love climbing the fixed ladder to their bed. What’s more, you can match the colour of this contemporary bed to your existing room decor – will you choose the ‘White’ or ‘Grey’ option?

Made from pine and MDF, you can be assured of its quality. Plus, this bed offers two under-bed drawers (on wheels) that’ll give your guests somewhere convenient to store their clothes.

5. Versatile Spaces for Everyday Living

Trasman Terrassa Day Bed

Whilst we all love hosting our nearest and dearest, often our guest bedrooms have to perform many roles once they’ve said goodbye.

That’s where this genius kids bed from Trasman is worth its weight in gold when the grandkids choose to stay over – even at short notice.

The handy drawers and pull-out single trundle bed can be rolled back under the raised mattress when not in use. Leaving you more office or playroom space, depending on your family’s needs, it’s the height of versatile furniture designed for modern living.

Manufactured from particle board wrapped in a Cascina wood effect and white melamine, it will surely slot into your existing guestroom. Plus, its neutral colour scheme won’t distract or dominate the space.

6. Be Our Guest!

Bergen Sofabed

You would never guess this comfy-looking sofa transforms into a bed. And that is part of its beauty – as well as the tactile quilted upholstery, cool neutral shade and statement conical legs it offers design lovers, of course.

Ideal for taking a sneaky power nap or reading during the day, it can function in a range of guestrooms (or living spaces) as a squishy yet supportive sofa for you and your family. Then, you can convert it into a guest bed in a matter of seconds, using the three-step easy-fold system.

Constructed from sturdy Ash wood, you can look forward to welcoming plenty of your family and friends to stay awhile. But, you’ll then have this gorgeous ‘Parchment’ or ‘Frost Grey’ sofa there to enjoy every day.

7. The Magnificent Seven

Swyft Sofa in a Box Model 04 Velvet 3 Seat Sofa Bed

Your extended family will be queuing up to stay at your place once they eye this exquisite sofa bed. Suitable for a guestroom or office-bedroom setting, working from home will never have looked (or felt) so good either.

We love the quality of the solid pine and beech frame, its velvety goodness – available in seven shades – and the focus on comfort as a sofa and a guest bed. During the day, you’ll recline on high-density foam and 300+ pocket springs. Then, guests will ‘float on cloud nine’, resting on a fitted mattress topper that’s stored under the seat cushions.

Being modular, you can forget pre-delivery jitters about whether this three-seater will fit through tight doorways and staircases. Once in place, you’ll assemble it in minutes – without searching for any tools – using the Swyft-lok technology and metal runners.
