Why You Need an Air Bed

Your mattress is fit for royalty. Your spare bedroom is equipped with a comfy guest bed. Maybe you even have a daybed or futon in your home office or playroom. If it seems like you have all your sleep needs met, you’re probably wondering which other type of bed you’d ever need. Here’s three reasons why you need an air bed.

Reasons You Need an Air Mattress

1. Unexpected Visitors

Whether your holiday party ran late or there was a misunderstanding with visiting guests, finding yourself in a sudden host position doesn’t have to be stressful. Having an air bed on hand can help make any unexpected visitor feel right at home. Whenever they leave, simply deflate, fold up, and put the air bed back in the closet until the next inevitable opportunity arises.

2. Extra-Large Sleepovers

It can finally be the year you throw your kid a sleepover birthday bash—all friends invited. Having a couple of air beds provides extra sleep space so no one feels left out once the lights go off. Plus, when it comes to sleeping in a fort, there nothing better than an air mattress. Becoming “parent of the year” has never been easier.

3. Camping Adventures

There’s something special about sleeping under the stars, but there is one quick way to elevate your outdoor experience: an air mattress. Whether you’re in Zion National Park or your own backyard, air beds can help take your camping adventure to the next level.

When an air bed takes up such little space and proves useful on so many occasions, there’s no reason to deny their practicality. Convinced? It’s time to shop.
