Don't have room for a spare bed? A fold up bed is the ideal space saving solution for overnight guests. These beds are easy to assemble and they fold away neatly when they're not in use, so you don't have to fill up your spare room with a permanent bed for when friends and family pay a visit.
With their lightweight aluminium or steel frames, folding beds are also a great choice for camping, keeping you higher above the ground than a foam mat or air mattress. They can also be used for your main bed at home, as they're usually cheaper than a standard bed and can be just as comfortable and supportive when you have a good mattress.
Most folding beds come with a foam mattress attached that folds up neatly along with the bed. You can also choose a metal frame only and add your own mattress or custom cut foam. Look for a fold-up bed with a trampoline style base if you want added comfort or a frame with wheels to make it even easier to move around the house.
To stay light and compact, folding beds are usually on the small side, but with twin and queen sizes available, they're large enough for most people. Make sure you check the measurements and choose a bed that's suitable for you and your guests, and don't forget to stock up on pillows, a mattress protector and everything else you need to enjoy a comfortable night's sleep.
