I love a good party. The types of parties that end up in everyone drinking a bit too much which requires them in staying over are the best. Knowing that when we all wake up the next morning, it’s going to warrant a very hungover trip to McDonalds. However, in my pre-party, sober ‘planning state’, I am sent into a frenzy trying to allocate guests to rooms without overcrowding each other. This ultimately ends up in a guest or two being given the dreaded sofa bed. All of my memories of sofa beds have been more than unpleasant which has made me determined to provide my sofa guests the best night’s sleep I can possibly give them with these seven tips. Obviously, it starts with a quality sofa bed, so Visit Domayne Australia for a great range of sofa beds online and in store.
