Christmas is when we spend quality time with close friends or family, and often the time when we invite loved ones to stay.

When space is at a premium, sofa beds are the obvious solution and the good news is the days of the boxy futon are long gone. You’ll find a wide selection of leather and fabric sofa beds in every colour, size and shape to choose from. Many are part of coordinated ranges, so you can have two sofas in the same style with one hiding a guest bed.

The chair bed – the flexible solution for extra Christmas guests

If you have a small den, office or snug which doubles as a guest room, you might find that a sofa bed takes up too much floor space – so where to put those extra Christmas guests?. One (or even two) compact chair beds is a flexible solution. They come in almost as many styles as sofa beds do – from snuggle chairs in velvety chenilles to modern leather armchairs – and they fold out into single guest beds in seconds.

Chair beds are particularly useful where you have families staying with you at Christmas – they look good in a child or teenager’s bedroom and can fold out into a comfy bed in an instant – perfect for the cousins!

Holiday hideaways – compact, comfy folding beds

You might have a crowd staying, in which case the more guest beds the better – this is where folding beds come in. Thanks to ingenious design advances and new generation materials, these are lighter, more compact and comfier than ever before.

Our folding beds in small single, single and double sizes are made to the highest standardswith strong frames and a choice of mattresses including memory foam. They can be put up anywhere there’s room for them – in the spare room, study, living room or in a child’s bedroom if they’re having a friend for a sleepover.

Another option is to keep a roll up mattress stored away for occasional guests – a low-cost, no-nonsense solution for overnighters who are happy to sleep at a lower-to-the-floor level.


Be ‘guest-ready’ in time for Christmas

Whatever guest bed solution you decide on, remember to order in plenty of time for the holiday season. It’s the season of goodwill – nobody will thank you for a night on the dreaded inflatable mattress. With a comfy bed and a good night’s sleep, your guests will wake refreshed, well rested and great company… all the better for making polite conversation with granny, and helping you peel that half tonne of potatoes for Christmas dinner.
