3‐Between the sheets: Decking out your sofa bed with quality bed linen would give your visitors a great night's sleep. So good you might have "difficulty" getting them to leave! Egyptian cotton has a high thread count which increases comfort levels greatly. If you are feeling flush (and really like your guests) then linen bedding makes for satisfying slumber.
Linen has thermo‐insulation properties which means it works at keeping you cool in summer also warm in winter. No need for additional blankets or hot water bottles plus the more linen is washed the softer it gets dreamy.
4‐Don´t forget to flip: For a quick fix don´t forget to flip your mattress regularly 4 times a year is recommended. Just like with your own bed and repeated pressure from sleeping bodies could lead to lumps with bumps. Giving your mattress a regular flip would help to "avert" any deep depressions also keeping it flatter for longer.
Hotels keep track of their mattress flipping antics by marking each end of a mattress: one says "January" (right side up) and "April" (upside down). The other "October" (right side up) and "July" (upside down). All you need to do then is just "modify" the mattress so that the appropriate month‘s name is right side up at the foot of the bed ingenious!
5‐Cushions, cushions & more cushions: You could NEVER have too many cushions; fact! Everyone has their own "outstanding" pillow arrangement when sleeping and you might like them big together with bouncy or flat as a pancake.
If you dress your sofa‐bed with cushions of varying sizes then these could double up a boosters for pillows when visitors stay. Cushions are also good to stuff in any gaps that might appear at the side of the mattress and ensuring a cosy comfy place to sleep.
6‐It’s the little things: Now your sofa bed is dressed also ready to receive visitors a few little touches would really get their stay off to a great start.
Some choccies on the pillow and bottled water (or wine!) in-conjunction with possibly even some mini toiletries as a little 'welcome gift' shall be a lovely surprise for any house visitor. Hopefully this would mean they go to bed relaxed also happy ‐ not counting sheep.
