In the busy run-up to Christmas it can be easy to let something slip your mind, but sorting out your guest bedroom before your siblings and their partners come to stay is not one of the things to forget. Too often when something is out of sight, it is out of mind, but when you have guests staying then you need to make it a top priority.

Invest in a day bed
Not heard of a day bed before? The name might suggest a bed designed for lounging around all day but in fact, a day bed is a French-inspired design that encases the mattress on three sides, making it the perfect hybrid of a sofa and a bed. Day beds make the perfect addition to a spare bedroom, home office, playroom or perhaps even a living room. The three-sided design is synonymous with day beds. They appear at first as a sofa but the incorporated head and foot ends create a hybrid structure between a sofa and a standard bed. If you’re looking for multifunctional furniture for your home this Christmas then look no further!
