Preparing for Guests This Festive Season with Laura James

The Festive season is all about spending time with family and friends, meaning there will be plenty get togethers arranged. Family and friends can come from many different locations and may be looking for somewhere to stay during the festivities. Its time to prep your home for any guests, get sleepover essentials and rearrange so there is plenty space for your guests to be comfortable.

Under prepared? We’ve got you covered with a range of sofa- beds.

Before your guests arrive, it is a good idea to plan their stay. Not having a dedicated guest room isn’t a problem as you can get creative with your space. Ensure the room isn’t open plan for guest privacy, this could mean considering a cosy living room or a home office, that can be transformed into a guest room full of comfort. A sofa bed like the Una Oatmeal Sofa Bed by Laura James, is an excellent option and is available in the new stylish oatmeal colour for AW23. The Oatmeal sofa bed’s compact design and comfy cushions, easily transform into a cosy double bed in minutes. The neutral colour complements a chic Scandi scheme, offering a timeless design.

The Una single sofa bed may be a more suitable option for smaller rooms and acts as a gorgeous accent chair when not as a bed. This piece can be transformed into a cosy, single sofa bed within seconds. It is important to consider all options when picking the right sofa bed for you and your home layout.

Is the Guest Space Prepared?

If your house is spacious enough to have a guest room, it may be time to declutter. Stash away clean laundry, old toys and exercise gear and opt for stylish storage solutions such as a bookcase or sideboard. Enhance the room décor with well placed decorative items such as a ceramic vase and add a room diffuser for a welcoming scent. Refresh the room with new bedding and allocate storage space in a drawer or wardrobe for your guest’s belongings.

Enjoy being the host and design a comfortable setting for your guests. Small thoughtful touches, like fresh towels and stylish cushions as well as throw on the beds or sofa bed, make a big difference. Add fresh flowers or house plants for a chic look.
