Seeing Twins in the Guest Room

This week my soon to be in laws are visiting which of course has me wishing the guest room was up to a designers standards. Since I have just moved into the new house, I will just have to let it slide that it is not perfectly decorated. It did get me thinking of guest rooms and whether a Queen Bed or 2 Twin beds are better! The images below of two twins is very appealing to me but I wonder if it is because it brings back fun memories of sharing a room with my sister!

If certain guests prefer to be a weee bit closer you can always push together the beds to create a cozier feel!!

What do you say, do you prefer a double bed or 2 twins in a guest room?

Hi JulieAnn

This is a great question. My husband and I wrestled with this forever. Some friends of ours have something like this: http://www.improvementscatalog.com/product/create-a-king-twin-bed-connector.do but our room was too small for a king bed.

Eventually, we went with a queen size and I think it's been a success. (at least the guests seem to enjoy it)

What fantastic images! I think a Queen bed would be our final choice but you do have me thinking of twins...

How about a trundle bed, takes
up less room and loved the look

I prefer a queen bed in a guest room BUT I love the idea of 2 twins in a room so I think I'm going to do 2 twins in my son's big boy room when we get there. I stalked Craig's List until I found the perfect pair of vintage Jenny Lind beds so that's my plan for them.

I think it's a great idea. My aunt has two twin beds in her guest house and it's adorable. Love it!

Twins! I did them in mine and always get thanks- albeit mostly from the girls. :) Plus I think they look cuter. Great inspiration shots you chose.

Nice! Dont see many twin beds in Australia, unless a dodgy hotel - these are gorgeous.
