Having a guest bedroom can often be considered a luxury, but a recent property report found that 50% of people in the UK actually have more than one spare room in their home.
Some use the space to create games rooms, while others prefer kid’s playrooms. The home office is another choice that exploded because of the pandemic. But the humble guest bedroom is a spare room staple that really has stood the test of time.
Creating a spare bedroom for guests can be a great use of spare room space – particularly if you like to have friends or family over. It can provide a comfortable place to sleep and means you get more quality time to spend with each other. And there aren’t many things more important than that, especially when it comes to Christmas and other holidays!
One of the problems with a guest bedroom can be furnishing it – particularly if you’re working with a limited budget. You’ll naturally want to spend the majority of your money on your main bedrooms and other spaces that get used regularly.
The good news is you can get bedroom furniture for your spare room without breaking the bank. Here are some of the best bedroom furniture buys from our retailer Furniture Online to help you create a warm and welcoming space for guests of any age.
All items are available from the retailer’s website – with customers spending over £500 in total eligible to spread the cost with DivideBuy’s interest free credit facility.
Looking for some Autumn/Winter inspiration?
This ottoman bed is the perfect blend of style and functionality. The under-bed storage space is brilliant if you want to store away clothes that are out of season, keeping them out of sight when you don’t need them.
The price tag represents great value, and you can even use DivideBuy’s interest free credit solution to spread the cost.
One of the worst parts of staying away from home can be an uncomfortable mattress, causing a restless night’s sleep.
When you’ve put this much thought into a spare room, it’s important not to fall at the final hurdle with a mattress that’s way too hard or far too soft for your guests.
The Somni Gel Hybrid Mattress is the Goldilocks option, with a pocket sprung design and a price that won’t break the bank.
If you’re looking for a good deal, then this combo package offers a bed and mattress for under £200.
There are lots of colours to choose from including charcoal, grey, cream and steel grey, with four different sizes ranging from Single to King Size.
The mattress provides five cushioned layers of support, and the bed also looks incredible with a chic design inspired by that classic city apartment look.
Time for a new mattress?
Even for a one-night-stay, most guests will want somewhere to store their clothing, and this slim two-door wardrobe has plenty of space to offer.
There’s a sense of comfort that comes from unpacking a suitcase – and with heaps of hanging space, this contemporary piece of furniture can make your guests feel right at home.
It’s the perfect size for a small space, but there are also wider wardrobes in the range for those that have larger rooms to fill.
Wardrobes and chest of drawers go together like salt and pepper, and this five-drawer design is the perfect accompaniment to your new hanging space.
A steal at £229, it’s handmade in the UK, coming in natural charcoal, white, or oak colours. If you’re looking for something eco-friendly and made with sustainable materials, this product offers both.
The Devonshire theme encapsulates classic British design through clean lines and elegant proportions and this bedside cabinet oozes luxury.
This two-drawer unit has plenty of space for your guests to tuck away their belongings at night-time, and has been manufactured to stand the test of time.
Standing at 55.2cm tall, its big enough to have a presence in your guest room, but small enough to tuck in next to your new bed.
What kind of list would this be if there wasn’t a wildcard option to look at? It may not quite qualify as cheap bedroom furniture – depending on your budget of course – but a sofa bed could be worth considering if you’re not 100 per cent committed to a guest room.
This five-seater corner sofa can be the perfect spot for cosy evenings and lazy days. But it also converts easily to a spacious bed whenever you need it. Scatter cushions included.
Customers spending over £500 on Furniture Direct are eligible to use DivideBuy’s interest free credit facility.
