In a rental, being able to offer more beds acts as a source of additional income for hosts which is why it’s always useful to have them available, especially in small spaces. When Brian Chesky and Joe Gebbia launched the Airbnb concept back in 2007, they housed guests on air mattresses. Today there’s no need to inflate a mattress. There are many 2-in-1 spare beds on the market that are both comfortable and convenient. Not only are today’s extra beds easy to handle and blend seamlessly into the décor but they can also bring a real functionality to the space. Sofa, bench, armchair and fireside chair offer a cosy sitting area during the day and convert into a bed at night. Some extra beds are adjustable and transform into consoles or wardrobes during the day. Others camouflage themselves in drawers, store as a trundle or stack on top of each other to save space. There is no lack of options when it comes to increasing the traveller capacity of your home, so don’t deprive yourself when it comes to these extra beds.
