When you’re choosing a mattress for yourself, it’s not very hard to decide. Sure, you have to weigh comfort against cost, and you may need to spend some time shopping around, but ultimately, you choose the mattress that you find most comfortable. When you’re shopping for your guest room, though, it can get a little tricky. Here are some things to consider when you’re trying to pick the best mattress for your guest room.

  • First, think about the size of your space. Don’t rush out and by a king-sized bed for a room that can’t contain it. Your guest room should have room for other furniture too, like a dresser, bedside tables, and a chair, so plan your mattress size accordingly. Try to at least make room for a double bed, so that two people can share your guest room.
  • Consider comfort. While guests are unlikely to be using the room for long stretches, you don’t want them to awake with aching backs. The trick to this is that people have different preferences, with some people preferring a lot of support, and others wanting to sink into a cloud of comfort. Your best bet is probably a medium-firm mattress, with a soft topper that can be removed for a firmer feel.
  • Who will be your frequent flyers? You can’t know everything about who will be using your guest room throughout the years, but you probably have a good idea of who will be there most frequently. Consider those guests and their preferences when you’re choosing the mattress. It’s not just about the firmness of the mattress, either. For example, some mattress materials, like foam, tend to get somewhat hot. If that’s going to make your primary guests uncomfortable, go with a different option.
  • How much money is in the guest room budget? You probably do not want to spend a lot of money on a mattress that’s only going to be used some of the time. Fortunately, there are many different brands and styles of mattresses, and many affordable options that will still be a good investment for your guest room. Shop around, and you’ll be sure to find one that fits your needs and your budget.
