If your front door magically transforms into a revolving one – spitting out stray teenagers, boozy relatives and university students over the Christmas holidays – there’s only so far two beds and a lumpy couch are going to stretch when it comes to ‘lights out’.
Let’s face it, you don’t want to give up your own cosy Land of Beds bed (and why should you?). That’s why having a go-to stash of roll-up mattresses can be the life-saving ‘pop-up bed’ solution that means your guests can have that one extra drink.
Today’s breed of roll-up is every bit as good as your guests’ mattress at home too. Think memory foam and the latest sleep-enhancing technology – plus they are super-easy to care for.
The only question is, which one will you pick?
Budget Bargain – Breasley Dreamworld Carina Mattress £129.00
The Dreamworld Carina Mattress from Breasley is all about comfort on a budget. Think about the great night’s sleep your guests enjoy at home with a price tag that won’t leave you like Bob Cratchit on Christmas Eve.
Entertaining the Bridget Jones of Singletons? The memory foam moulds and contours to even the loneliest of sleepers! After all that rich food and booze, they can toss and turn to their heart’s content; this mattress will spring right back into shape.
Its high-density core means this is perfect if your guest has got a bit of a bad back; it’ll keep their spine aligned at all times – plus the non-quilted cover is totally machine-washable. Just give it a post-Christmas spin to get it ready for New Year’s Eve – as fresh and hygienically clean as the day we deliver it to you!
Comfort Classic – Relyon Pocket Comfort 1050 Mattress £159.00
It’s easy to forget that there’s other options than memory foam sometimes, but we’re going to say it loud and proud: “We love springs!”
Shaping to the body’s contours and absorbing changes in weight distribution, the 1,050 individual foam-encased springs in this mattress are designed to nestle your guests in exquisite comfort…
Indulged in a Boxing Day turkey curry? The Coolmax® fabric cover is a unique material which helps maintain the body temperature during sleeping.
Suitable for all types of divan and slatted bases, this roll-up is also a great first step towards investing in a permanent guest bed for homes with more frequent visitors.
Best of the Best – Concept Memory Sleep Comfort Soft Mattress £169.00
Friends travelling in from a distance? Roll out the sleeping equivalent of a red carpet and invest in a mattress produced by a craftsman!
Like all the best things, this connoisseur’s choice comes from up north… Lancashire to be exact. Concept Memory Sleep are part of the prestigious Guild of Master Craftsmen and they use only the finest materials – ensuring a comfortable sleeping experience.
If your guests are allergic to dust mites, this is the perfect mattress – especially if they have asthma. Designed with 20cm of high-density Softer Reflex Foam, it will eliminate pain and discomfort – allowing them to reach untold levels of sleep. (Perfect for when you want an extra hour or two in the morning to get stuck into your Christmas box-sets!)
As you’d expect, the quilted corner is luxurious, with a four-way stretch to provide soft cushioning and added comfort. To keep it in tip-top condition, simply zip off the removable cover and send it to the dry cleaners for a refresh!
