No matter the occasion, it could be a birthday, the night before a group holiday or before a party, there will be times when people need to stay over at yours. Perhaps you live far away from those you’re looking to catch up with, or maybe they want a couple of drinks and don’t fancy making their way home at night. Whatever the reason, a guest room can be a great addition to any house. And while it might be very useful, it could be that you don’t have much space to turn into a guest room or that you don’t often have guests to stay. If this is the case, you might be looking for the best single bed frame for your guest room.
A single bed is great as it's got plenty of space for someone to sleep on their own, or for a couple to squeeze into for a night or two. Here we look at how to find the best single bed frame for your guest room.

Why choose a single bed frame for your guest room?
There are many reasons you should choose a single bed frame for your guest room. Here’s why we’ve put together just a few reasons it can be a fantastic choice for you.
It provides a comfortable night's sleep
How many times have you been to stay at a friend's house and had to cram onto a sofa that’s not long enough for you, or sleep on an airbed that's deflated halfway through the night? By having a single bed you’re not taking up too much space in your home, but are also providing a comfortable night's sleep for those that stay. It’s a much more appealing option and shows you care about the comfort of the guests that are coming to stay with you.
You can still use the room for something else
If you have a spare room in your house but don’t have people to stay too often, chances are you will want to use the room for something else. Instead of just having a guest room that’s left empty half the time, a single bed enables you to use it for another purpose instead. You could have it as an office for example, or a playroom for the kids. You can dress up your single bed as a sofa with cushions and a cosy throw giving a comfortable place to sit during the day too!
It’s a convenient option for people to stay
If you have people coming to stay and they need to sleep, having to spend time blowing up an airbed or setting up a sofa can be a hassle. A single bed is convenient and easy, being ready to use as soon as they arrive or fancy going to sleep.

How do you find the best single bed frame for your guest room?
If you’re on the hunt for the best single bed frame for your guest room, there are a few things you might want to consider. Here are just a few things for you to think about before making the best choice for you.
Consider how much space you have
The type of bed frame you choose can greatly impact the amount of space that’s left in your room. If you’ve got a larger room you could opt for a chunkier frame, whereas if it’s smaller you might want something smaller. If you have more space you could choose one with both a headboard and a footboard, whereas if not, you might choose just a basic ottoman frame or a metal frame that takes up less space.
Make sure to measure up the room to the exact centimetre if you’re tight for room. This will avoid ordering a bed only for it not to fit once you’ve assembled it all!
Think about if you want extra storage
As well as being a perfect place for people to stay, a single bed can also provide extra storage for your home. There are a plethora of ottoman beds on the market which lift up to give additional storage space underneath. You could use this to store your children's toys, spare bedding or even to rotate your summer and winter wardrobe - the choice is yours. It’s a great subtle way to have more room in your home and make it look less cluttered at the same time.
Have a budget in mind
As with all furniture, single bed frames can vary greatly in price depending on what you’re looking for. Make sure you have a budget in mind right from the off that you know you want to spend. This will make looking for a bed much easier. You might want to spend a bit more to ensure you get the best quality, but be sure to always check out the reviews of the bed frame and see what others have said about it to ensure it is a legitimately good choice.
Take into account how often it will be used
If your guest room is going to be used a couple of times a year you probably don’t have to put as much thought into it as if it’s going to be used every couple of weeks. Consider how sturdy you need it to be and whether it will be mostly children or adults that will be sleeping in it. It’s also important to factor this in with the price to ensure you get the most from your money and its longevity is optimised.
