Choosing the Right Size Mattress for Your Guests
Being a good host isn’t just about making sure your guests have enough towels and a decent place to sleep. What kind of guest bed are you providing? How much should you spend? Is there any way to save money while still providing a comfortable stay for your visitors? Let’s take a look at what factors to consider when choosing the right size mattress for your guest bedroom.
The most important factor to consider is the size of the mattress. Think about who will be sleeping on it, and how tall they are. If your father-in-law is 6 foot 4 inches tall, perhaps you should opt for a king or queen size mattress instead of a full or twin size bed. You don’t want him hanging off the side of the bed trying to get some shuteye!
Once you’ve decided on the size, it’s time to consider your budget. We recommend that you spend at least $800-$1200 dollars on a quality guest bed that will last you for years. Sure, that may sound steep, but remember—you want your guests to be comfortable and rest well during their stay in your home! Some of our best memories with friends and family are made during vacations spent at home, so invest wisely in quality linens, mattresses and pillows.
Look For Discounts
You don’t have to break the bank either! Look around online or at local furniture stores for floor model discounts or other deals. Sometimes these can save you big bucks if you’re willing to sacrifice some minor scratches or dents in exchange for saving several hundred dollars off retail price. Just make sure whatever deal you find is still within your budget and provides quality materials that will make your guests feel at home (and not like they are sleeping on an old creaky box spring!). At Mattress Xperts we switch out our mattresses either twice a year or once a year depending on our manufacturers so look for our Floor Model discounts or our "Year End" sales that generally take place around Christmas or New Years.
Quick Note: If you are not in a hurry to purchase a new guest bed you can visit our Mattress Xperts store location now and reserve a Floor Model of your choice and when new product arrives you can arrange for payment and delivery quickly.
Buying a mattress can be daunting—especially when it comes to finding one that fits both your style and budget while also being comfortable enough for overnight guests! With this guide however, we believe anyone can find the perfect fit without spending too much or sacrificing comfort. Just remember—it pays to think ahead about who will be sleeping on it and what price range works best for you before committing to any purchase. Good luck, and enjoy hosting all those special people in your life!
