Beds, beds, beds

I love the look of two twin beds in a guestroom:

Something about the symmetry is really appealing. And on the positive side, it means you can have two guests who might not want to share a bed (friends, etc) at the same time.

But is this really mean for guests who do like sharing a bed? Would you be annoyed if you were staying at a friends place and you had to sleep 1 or 2 feet away from your loved one? Would you be less annoyed if it was in a really pretty room?


  1. That is a great idea! I hadn't thought of that actually. I was thinking of just one bed in my guest room. Two seems to be much more practical. Will have a look at that set up for mine.

  2. I agree with Melanie. Much more practical and as someone's guest, I wouldn't mind.

  3. I do like the look of two twin beds, but had only considered it for a kid bedroom, not a guest room. I think it's a good idea, though. If I come visit and get free lodging, I'm not going to complain about the accommodations! :)

    What would your parents think if they were visiting? Mine would not go for it in my house. But they don't even like that we have a full size bed instead of a queen in our guestroom, so they probably aren't the best judges.

  4. ok, 3 votes for yes, sounds good!

    Megan, I will have to ask my parents, but this is the first time they will actually have a bed to stay on in our house, so they shouldn't be too picky right?

  5. You could always put the beds together for couple guests. 2 twins together = a king, right? That beats a double any day, even if there's a crack in the middle :)

  6. I think it's a great idea. And if couples are too concerned with having to sleep a few feet apart, they can always decide to share one twin. Throw back to the dorm room days?
