Tips for Squeezing in More Guest Beds

Have the whole clan coming to stay during the holidays? If you’re wondering where on earth to put everyone, these ideas can help. From chic sleeper sofas and daybeds to trundles, bunks, hide-a-beds and air mattresses, see which of these solutions can work for you.



An attractive sleeper sofa. There are some really lovely sleeper sofas on the market today. If you have a choice, place one in the den or family room rather than an open living area — your guests will appreciate being able to shut the door.



Privacy tip: Use a screen. If your guests must sleep in the living room, especially if your living room does not have a door that shuts, it’s nice to offer a folding screen for privacy. Set up the bed for your guest in the evening and position the folding screen so he or she won’t be disturbed if you walk by in the morning.



Slim sleeper sofa in the master bedroom. If you have a large master bedroom, adding a petite sleeper sofa instead of a chaise or an armchair can be a smart move. If you have a family with a child coming to visit, you can offer your bedroom to the guests and take the smaller guest bed yourself.
