How to Handle Sleeping Arrangements for the Winter Holidays

The holidays are just around the corner, and you are bursting with excitement! You’ve been a whirlwind of activity, cleaning the house from top to bottom, decorating, and planning the menu. You’ve brought out the fine china, picked up the wine, and ordered desserts. Everything is ready for the hoard of people that will soon be arriving. There’s only one problem…you forgot about sleeping arrangements!

You must find accommodations for the grandparents, an elderly aunt, your brother and his wife, your daughter’s boyfriend from college, and a few extra kids. Here are a few tips to make your life easier and help you make room for everyone this holiday season!

Consider Who Sleeps Where

Be strategic as you pick locations for everyone. You probably won’t want your teenage daughter and son sharing a room, as this could lead to major headaches and arguments during the holiday season that you don’t need. You can always invest in air mattresses and create temporary sleeping arrangements in the living room and den. Even the dining room works! Small kids usually don’t mind bunking up together, and if you’re dealing with elderly guests, you’ll want to keep them on the first floor to avoid problems with stairs.

Think Outside of the Box

Now is the time to use your imagination. Look at every bit of available space in your home. If you have a fitness room, move equipment against the wall to make room for a sofa bed. Consider giving up your bed for anyone in the family who needs special accommodations to make them as comfortable as possible. Remember that this is only for a brief time, and enjoy bringing everyone together under one roof. The holidays bring families and friends closer!

Prioritize Comfort

If you have the luxury of a sofa bed, inspect your couch mattress. You don’t want anyone to wake up with a bad back because your old mattress has seen its better days. You can always order a sofa bed replacement mattress to ensure your guests have a good night’s rest!
