Buying Guide: The Best Mattress for Your Guest Bedroom

The holiday season is in full swing, which likely means out guest rooms are going to get a little more action. So you might be wondering, what is the best mattress for a guest bed?

As we all know, good sleep is foundational to your physical and mental well-being. And in order to get the best sleep you can, you need a good mattress that provides optimal support and comfort for your unique sleeping needs. And being the fantastic host that you are, you probably want your guests to get that good sleep, no?

When it comes to guest bedrooms, the key is to think like goldilocks and find something that’s just right. So let's dive into the major things to consider when shopping for a guest bed!

Mattress Size. Generally speaking, a full size mattress is a good choice for your guest bedroom. Most guest bedrooms are on the smaller size, meaning they would be overcrowded by a queen or king size mattress. At the same time, you want your guest to be comfortable and not have to squeeze into a twin. Enter: the full size mattress! The sweet spot for your guest bedroom needs.

Mattress Feel. To accommodate the widest variety of sleeping styles, consider a hybrid mattress, which has a great combination of traditional bounce and the sinking-into-a-cloud memory foam sensation, making them pretty universally comfortable. They're more supportive than regular memory foam, and better at contouring to your unique body than a traditional spring mattress, allowing your bed to have the best of both worlds. Because of this, they’re also uniquely suited to accommodate a diversity of sleeping preferences: side sleepers, back sleepers, and stomach sleepers alike will all be equally supported.

Mattress Base. Consider getting an adjustable base for your guest bed to further increase the versatility. With an adjustable base, you can shift your mattress into lots of different positions that can help with pain, sleep issues, and even simple comfort preferences.

At the end of the day the perfect mattress size for you comes down to your individual preferences, circumstances, and sleep style.
