We had just 2 bedrooms to convert. Ds' room became the guest room, although the closet has a few things of his and some other asst stuff of mine, dd, etc. Dd's room was used as a storeroom (literally) for a couple of years. Then when we remodeled our kitchen in 2009 we cleared out the furniture etc that was stored in the bedroom and made it our temporary kitchen. When the real kitchen was functional her old room became my office. I have a sofa sleeper in here so it can be used as an additional guest room although supposedly the sleeper is not very comfortable. Since we also have a sofa sleeper in the library that becomes our first overflow guest room.
DD1's bedroom became a guest room, because it still had a queensized bed and dressers in it.
Some of these responses are very familiar sounding!
I have never tried one, altho I have seen one.
This will be short. This is the first we've had internet service today-& it is almost 1am. From the sounds of the weather-we may not have it nor hydro for a few days if storm #2 comes with as much vigour is predicted.
When DD#1 moved out-she had been sharing a room with Adam (who was almost 4-but was very tiny, so was in a crib). As soon as she left-I made the room into a little boy's room. I put cartoon like dinosaurs on the walls-not very well but he liked them . They were to be about halfway up the wall-my measurements were slack & thekids all called it "Mom's Mountain Range" as it did tend to go up & down at will!
Then DD#2 moved out & her room became my sewing room.She had a bf help her paint it about a year before leaving-so all I had to do was apply a coat of paint to the ceiling. I was determined not to be like the cartoon & step off the ladder into the roller-tray...& I didn't. But I put the tray onto the dresser still in there-& didn't get it on far enough & spilled it-right smack in the middle of the room. So I had to get a new carpet for the floor-sigh! I hated the deep pink she chose (Not to mention the paper & border)but put up with it until about 3 years ago. Mike tore the room apart-took paper off the walls & made 'my room' really mine. I love the mauve,
I imagine that as with so many things, the various price points determine the quality...so that an air mattress that is intended to be used for an extended period and/or have heavier people on it would need to be of better quality. Even so, it would probably need to have air added on a regular basis to keep it firm.
A friend of ours has a newer sofa sleeper with an air mattress, which we have slept on twice. Its a "thick" mattress, maybe even a pillow top. The first time we slept on it, I didn't know that it was an air mattress--she had the bed opened and made up when we arrived. We kind of sunk into it, but not in a good way. Evidently it was under-inflated. The next time we slept on it, I helped her make up the bed and saw her inflate the mattress although I don't recall what she used to do it (maybe a little machine of some sort?) and that time she made the mattress firmer and it was very comfortable.
