Getting Ready for Guest Season: Preparing Your Spare Room with Divan Beds


Summer is just around the corner, bringing with it long days, warm nights, and the joyful prospect of visits from friends and family. Whether it's for weekend barbecues, holidays, or impromptu get-togethers, ensuring your guests have a comfortable place to stay can make their visit memorable. Preparing your spare room with our range of divan and ottoman beds from Divan Base Direct can elevate your guest’s experience from a simple stay to a luxurious retreat.

1. Choose the Right Bed

The centrepiece of any guest room is, undoubtedly, the bed. A divan bed is perfect for guest rooms due to its versatility and comfort. Our divan beds come in a variety of styles and sizes to match any room decor, ensuring they not only offer comfort but also enhance the room’s aesthetic. Opt for a king-size if the room allows, giving your guests ample space to relax. For smaller rooms, a single or double divan provides comfort without occupying too much space.

2. Maximise Space with Ottoman Beds

If your guest room doubles as a storage space, an ottoman bed from Divan Base Direct is an excellent choice. These beds lift up to reveal ample storage space underneath, perfect for storing extra bedding, pillows, and towels, thus keeping the room clutter-free and serene. This feature is especially useful for maintaining a tidy and welcoming environment for your guests.

3. Focus on Comfortable Bedding

A good night’s sleep is central to any guest’s comfort. Dress your divan beds with high-quality, breathable bedding. Choose lightweight duvets and crisp, cotton sheets in soothing colours to create an inviting sleep environment. Consider hypoallergenic options to accommodate guests with allergies, ensuring everyone has a restful night.

4. Add Thoughtful Touches

Small details can make a big difference in how welcome your guests feel. Place a bedside lamp on the nightstand for late-night readers, and include a small basket with essentials such as bottled water, snacks, and toiletries. These thoughtful touches show your guests you care about their comfort and convenience.

5. Consider the Seating

Including a small seating area in your guest room can provide your visitors with a private space to relax. A compact armchair or a small sofa bed can be a great addition, especially if paired with a good selection of books or magazines. For rooms with limited space, consider a stylish bench at the foot of the bed, which not only serves as seating but also complements the divan’s design.

6. Final Flourishes

Lastly, add some final touches such as fresh flowers or a plant to bring a bit of nature indoors. Art pieces or photographs on the walls can add character and interest to the room. Make sure there is a mirror available, perhaps over a dresser, which can also provide space for guests to keep their belongings.

By following these tips and incorporating our Divan Base Direct products, your guest room will be a haven of comfort and style. Prepare to receive compliments on your hosting skills and see your guests leave with smiles, looking forward to their next visit. With a beautifully prepared space, summer visits can be as relaxing for your guests as they are enjoyable for you.
