Several things go into picking and choosing the perfect mattresses, including which bedroom you’re shopping for and how much space you have. Keep these tips in the back of your mind when you’re looking for the perfect place to rest your head.
For Those Who Stay Every Night
Create the perfect sleep space
Coming home to a large, comfy bed is everyone’s dream—but build your dream around your space. If your bedroom is smaller, consider a queen mattress to give you plenty of room to decorate, easily move around, and unwind.
Bring home your mattress match
Like many things, you need to get to know a mattress before you commit. Lie down, stretch out, and get comfortable in your normal sleeping position for at least three minutes before coming to a decision.
Decide on a price that’s just right
Once you bring a mattress home, it’s there to stay. Decide on the mattress you’ll look forward to sleeping on, and a price that won’t keep you up at night.
For Those Who Stay Overnight
Know your guests
Sometimes choosing a mattress can be overwhelming—especially if you aren’t the one using it. When deciding size and materials, it’s important to consider how often you have overnight guests, their age, and if they arrive solo or in pairs.
Answer the big question: One bed or two?
Again, knowing your guests will be key. If you usually only have one or two people at a time, a larger bed is perfect. But if you host family gatherings or sleepovers, having two full sized beds might be better.
Keep the entire space in mind
Make your guest feel right at home with convenience and comfort. Position the bed in a place that doesn’t face a window, block a closet, or interfere with the door.
Think about what you would like
Sometimes guest bedrooms come in handy for the whole family. Your guest bed can be a lifesaver for everything from coming down sick to coming home late from the office when you don’t want to disturb your partner’s sleep.
