Ottoman Beds – Great for Guests

Ottomans That Convert to Beds

No room for an overnight guest? Think again. Now with an ottoman sleeper bed, you transform any room into an instant guest bedroom.

No more wasting a whole room waiting for a guest to visit. Use every room in your house. When a guest arrives, presto…change the ottoman into a single bed.

Even if you have a guest room, an ottoman sleeper bed lets you accommodate an extra person or child for the night. I love the idea of convertible furniture that does double duty.

Since I live in Florida and not too far from Disney World, we can get guests at any time.

What Guests Need…

A comfortable night’s sleep!

Your guests don’t have to have a deluxe guest bedroom equal to a five-star resort. They will enjoy their visit just fine if you provide them with a comfortable night on your ottoman sleeper bed.

These are perfect for tight spaces.

Space in your home is valuable and most people wish they had more room. Maybe they need a room for a consuming hobby like genealogy or scrapbooking. Don’t waste a room by putting a double bed in it and saving it for guest use only.

By having a bed that hides away, then the room can really serve the family’s recreational and hobby needs for that 99% of the time when there are no guests.

Here’s how it looks when it’s a simple ottoman. What you get is a stylish leather ottoman that converts into a single bed. It’s perfect for a compact living space. Just pull out the bed which is intended for guests (not full-time use). The mattress isn’t very thick, so you can get a memory foam mattress topper if you want it a bit plusher for your guest.

The cover just slips off then unfold the metal frame with the comfortable 3″ polyurethane foam mattress. It will support a single person up to 500 pounds. If you want the guest to be extra comfy, you can add a memory foam topper.

More Options for Accommodating Guests

Creating a Genealogy Work Space
Working on your family history goes much easier if you have a dedicated space for your computer and files. I’ll share with you the room we created for my genealogy work.

Most of us don’t have an unused room sitting around waiting for us to change it into our genealogy room. What we might have is a guest room that is seldom used.

To get the room to serve several functions, we’ve installed a murphy bed. That lets the genealogy room easily turn into a guest room. My husband can also use the room for his music project. He’s digitizing all our vinyl and music tapes.

Chair Bed – Extra Sleeping Space for Guests
Make a Chair Do Extra Service as a Guest Bed

Many homes don’t have the luxury of keeping a guest room that does nothing most of the time. Other rooms in the home can double up to serve as a guest room when needed. Just add a cushy chair that converts easily into a place for a guest to sleep. There are a number of variations on this, where the chair unfolds to make a single bed.

Since I live in Central Florida, I can expect guests at least a few times each winter. Having an extra bed sure comes in handy. Here are some of the options for a chair bed (a chair that transforms into a bed).

I’ve provided a range of sleeper chairs below. Take a look to see which one fits your needs. Some work better for a child’s room and convert into a bed for sleep-overs. Others will work for an adult visitor.
