Raised Air Beds: The Perfect Addition For Any Home
If you're looking for a guest bed that won't take up a whole room when it's not in use, and can be set up in a matter of minutes when you need it, then we can highly recommend that you get yourself a Raised Air Bed.
We first discovered Raised Air Beds when my wife and I were looking for a replacement for an old futon which we used for visitors. There were two problems with this futon:
- Our guests hated it as it was extremely uncomfortable.
- When it wasn't in use, it occupied a large amount of space in our spare room leaving what little remained pretty much unusable.
We had been looking for an alternative guest bed solution for a while before, quite unexpectedly, we came across a video demonstration showing how quick and easy it is to set up a guest bed using a Raised Air Bed. Check this video out:

After some thorough research on the subject we decided that it was a viable solution to our guest bed problem and ordered a 24 inch high King size which arrived complete with a mattress cover and valance.
Setting this air bed up was a cinch with its built-in pump. Within six or seven minutes we had a bed ready to be slept in

To make absolutely certain this bed was the solution we needed for our guests, we slept in it for a full week. It proved to be everything the manufacturer said it was, in fact we were both a little reluctant to return to our own bed as it had proven so comfortable. A couple of weeks later our best friends came to stay with us for a few days so we were eager to get their opinion. Result - They were so impressed that after the very first night they decided to bought one for themselves.
