When it comes to decorating your guest room, few things are as important as the bed! Friends and family aren’t likely to care too much about the color of wall paint you choose or whether you decide to put up your favorite prints. But they are definitely going to appreciate if you choose a great bed for them to sleep on. When you are picking out the best bed for the space, the most important factor is going to be space. If you are working with a tiny room, a twin-size bed is going to be perfect. But for a larger space you will nearly always want to opt for larger if the budget will allow it; a bigger bed means that couples can share without being cramped. Large doesn’t have to mean huge, of course. A full-size bed is a great size for a medium size guest bedroom. Getting a full size platform bed frame gives you plenty of options for storage and décor.
Once you have decided on a full-size platform bed frame, you have a few options available to you. The most basic and often affordable option is a free-standing platform frame that is simple; there is no headboard or footboard included. A frame that is integrated with a headboard and a footboard and even side rails is going to be more expensive but often gives you more options for decorative elements as well as storage. When you are deciding on what kind of platform bed frame is right for your room, you will want to consider what other décor you will be using in the room to make sure that the headboard and footboard you are thinking of is going to work well with the rest of your decoration plans. It’s also important to consider what you might plan on storing in the guest room, of if you want to offer storage to guests to be able to put away clothes for their stay.
As you are deciding on these logistics, the options available to you should narrow from a huge number to something more reasonable. Once you have narrowed down your décor specifications and your storage needs, you can begin to consider other options like ideal height and perhaps the weight if you are concerned about moving the bed as you rearrange the room. Taking the time to pick the right bed is going to lay the groundwork for a fabulous guest bedroom.
