After so long not having guests to stay, it’s safe to say we’re excited about the latest lifting of lockdown restrictions. In case you’re out of the loop, from the 17th May, we’re allowed to have another household or up to six people stay overnight in our homes.

While we’re busy transforming our spare rooms from dumping grounds and home offices into a comfortable guest space, it’s important not to forget about the guest bed itself.

We recommend opting for one of these sofa beds, as this means you can use it as an extra seating area when guests aren’t staying, and can also work in spare room, as your main living room sofa or as part of the home office. It will immediately blend into your home, whilst serving the purpose of an extra bed.

Traditionally, sofa beds have been known to be uncomfortable and not particularly attractive, however nowadays there are lots of great options that will tick all your boxes. Read on to discover a few of our favourites…
