If you’re you’re hosting friends, relatives or in-laws, it’s definitely best to have your house guests find a hotel down the street to stay in, but, as you’re probably aware, it doesn’t always work out that way (sigh). I’ve had friends ask to crash at my pad numerous times, and while there doesn’t seem to be any sort of solid terms of etiquette on this matter, I usually end up (reluctantly) allowing them to sleep in my own bed, while I toss and turn in the pursuit of a decent night’s rest on my uncomfortable couch. Fortunately, you don’t have to resort to this approach — even if you’re concerned about the dwindling funds in your less-than-ample bank account balance.
Whether you like it or not, it may not be your responsibility to ensure that your house guests feel like they’re staying at a five-star resort, but it is good manners to make sure you have the proper resources to make them feel more at home (or at least, somewhat comfortable) while they’re away. Investing in a stylish futon mattress that doubles as a cozy bed is probably going to be your best fit if you plan to have overnight visitors, and would prefer to avoid marring your home decor style. Here are some of my favorite somewhat chic futon mattresses that won’t break the bank.
