Crashing on the floor might be fine for younger guests, but there is no way you can ask your in-laws to sleep in sleeping bags or even on an airbed on the floor when they visit. If space is cramped and there is no room for a luxurious guest bed, you do have another option: a futon sofa bed. A futon can be an inexpensive purchase, if you opt for something like the classic Kebo futon sofa. This low-set bed comes with a metal frame and microfiber cover, and does not have any armrests. If this reminds you too much of dorm furniture and you want something more elegant for your living room, you can find a wide variety of alternatives on eBay to the classic, metal futon frame. Look for a wooden frame, and add an ultra-thick futon mattress and classy mattress cover for comfort. The standard futon sofa bed, with a full-size mattress, is 74 inches long by 54 inches wide, so keep this sizing in mind when measuring your room and buying guest sheets. No one said you had to enjoy having your in-laws in town for a visit, but with a futon sofa bed, at least you do not have to be embarrassed about having them sleep on the floor.
