There’s a bit of a chill in the air, which means summer has come and gone and autumn is here again. It also means the Holiday Season isn’t too far behind! Have you given a thought to whether or not you’ll have guests this year? Due to the fact that so many people cancelled their winter plans last year, this season is expected to be outrageously popular for traveling. If you have friends, family, or other loved ones from out of town that will be staying with you, even for one night, it’s time to start thinking about where your guests will sleep. While we've written articles on our 4 steps to finding the right sleeper sofa and the best options for buying a sleeper sofa from City Mattress, we want to delve deeper into how beneficial a sleeper sofa can be for holiday guest spaces.
Setting up a Guest Space for the Holidays
Your guests will need a comfortable place to sleep, as well as a place to put the items the brought along with them. Don’t forget other sleep essentials like sheets, pillows, a robe, and perhaps even a white noise machine.
If you’re not sure where to start, begin your search by stopping into your nearest City Mattress location. Once inside, you’ll see what we are far more than “just mattresses.” In fact, we have everything one needs to set up the perfect guest room. Your overnight Holiday Season guests will sleep well, have a beautiful sleep space, and love their time spent at your home.
One area we want you to pay special attention to is the idea of a sleeper sofa. Few homes have the square footage for a guest bedroom that is only used a few nights out of the year. A sleeper sofa is a convenient addition to any home, but especially smaller homes and apartments that don’t provide the luxury of a guest room. If you don’t have the available space for a dedicated guest room, this is a fabulous alternative.
Our Favorite Sleeper Sofa Options
Sleeper sofas provide ample seating room and terrific sleep solutions in one compact package. These sofas are designed to accommodate three adults sitting next to each other. A sleeper sofa in this size can pull out to have a Twin, Twin XL, or Queen sized mattress. This means you can have a great spot to take a break or sit in, and then it’s easy to pull out for your guests to have a sleep spot. A few of our favorite options include:
This sleeper sofa delivers contemporary form and superior function in full extra-long dimensions. Making the most of your space, this upholstered sleeper model swiftly converts into a cozy full XL bed with the easy deluxe mechanism. The stunning silhouette, durable fabric upholstery, exceptional padding, and solid frame construction combine to meet high design standards that embody the epitome of true Scandinavian style.
With the detailed arm design and inviting comfort, the Flex Loveseat Chaise Sleeper offers an array of functions. Thanks to storage under the chaise and an easy-open sleeper function, it provides both comfort and convenience. It’s so beautiful, no one will even be able to tell it turns into a sleeper until you show them! It is available in a cream fabric, plus other fabrics and leather as a special order.
Maybe these overnight guests are your grandkids. How exciting! When you have kids coming over, a bunk bed is the best way for them to sleep. Yes, we have sleeper sofas that turn into a bunk bed! A modern marvel of engineering, the Elevate goes from sofa to bunk bed with minimal effort. It is designed to accommodate two full-size adults, so there’s plenty of room for grandkids of all ages.
