Fold Up Guest Beds with Mattresses

A fold up guest bed is a very useful item to have in any household. Comfortable and compact, they can sit quietly and out of the way in storage until needed, when they fold out into a full size and handy bed to accommodate any guests that may be visiting your home. There are a variety of styles from simple travel cots to more advanced, multi-purpose and multi-part beds. Before buying a fold up guest bed with mattress, there are a number of considerations to make.

Mattress type

Most guest beds attempt a good balance between lightweight materials and comfort, opting for a breathable yet sturdy mattress backed up by modern, standard springs. Other options include memory foam mattresses and inflatable beds , which cater for different preferences.


The size of the bed is important and unless your requirements are very specific, it is usually best to opt for the largest one you can afford and store. Single and double fold up beds are the most common, but queen and king sizes do exist. Consider not only if it will fit in the room, but if there is ample space for your guests to get out of bed comfortably.

Set up

Different types of beds set up in different ways. Inflatable beds take longer to set up, but with air pumps they take far less effort. A full, fold up guest bed made of wood and metal is far heavier and harder to stow away, but there are more permanent options that are often comfier and certainly harder to damage.

Support type

Under the mattress there is a support structure in place to keep the mattress upright and in the correct position. Metal, rounded support bars offer more durable support, but sometimes they can be slightly uncomfortable. Fold up beds with wooden slats are less durable and easier to break, but they are a lot more comfortable as the slats cannot usually be felt through the mattress.
