07 Aug Mattress and Other Variables for Guest Bedrooms, Part 3
In parts one and two of this multi-part blog series, we’ve gone over numerous factors regarding choosing a mattress and other amenities for a guest bedroom. There are several different variables to consider here, from your common guests to the size of the room and your budget.
At 2 Brothers Mattress, we’re proud to offer a huge array of new mattress options for any room in your home, including the bedroom. We offer queen and king mattresses for larger guest rooms with frequent couple guests, or smaller options and adjustable beds for other circumstances. In today’s part three of our series, we’ll look into several additional tips for improving guest bed experience, including some accessories and basic use expertise.
Whether we’re talking about a new guest bed or a mattress that’s already been in the space for a while and is beginning to show signs of wear or sagging, an excellent resource for long-term value is a mattress topper. Not only that, but such toppers also provide fantastic value to guests who will be sleeping in the room: They make the bed far more comfortable in many cases.
Mattress toppers are also easily affordable, usually ranging between $20 and $100 (though more expensive options are available if you choose). Even the most expensive options, however, are far more affordable than replacing the entire bed due to comfort issues.
Another ideal accessory to ensure you’ve considered in the guest bedroom is the mattress protector. We particularly recommend a waterproof mattress protector, one that will stop all moisture and liquids from making its way into the actual mattress material and damaging it.
This is especially important if you know some of your frequent guests will be bringing children along. While everyone loves their nieces and nephews, for instance, they can bring heightened spill and mess risks that you want to protect against. Mattress protectors are also vital for any homeowner whose guest mattress has a warranty they want to maintain.
Another tip for extending the lifespan of your mattress: Rotating and/or flipping its surface regularly to account for the common places people sleep on a mattress. This will allow various sections of the mattress to each absorb stress over periods of time, balancing the weight that’s placed on the entire item and avoiding risks of sagging or other discomfort concerns.
Rotating takes some muscle, and might require two or more people depending on the size of the mattress. You might be surprised, though, at how many additional years you get out of the mattress if you do this regularly.
