I am debating twin beds vs a king or queen in my new guest room - any suggestions?

Guest bedrooms are for guests...normally. If you have a tremendous amount of single friends who are in no way going to double up any time soon = twin beds.

If you have friends and family who come in pairs (married) then it makes a bit more sense to move towards a queen size bed. A king bed would probably be a bit of over kill. Kings have a tendency to make people feel like they want to stay...and stay...and stay because they have more room in the guest bed then they do at home.

Just a thought. The choice is would be best to suite the guest bed to the guests you are most likely to have.

Twin beds are for kids in my opinion. Adult singles hardly sleep in twin beds. How big is your room? I agree king is an overkill. Normally double or queen will do.

Also consider all the extra bedding you'll have to buy. If you already have a queen bed with a lot of bedding, you can share between the two rooms.

I have twin beds in one guest room and a queen in the other. The twins come in handy when we have singles or youngsters.
