At Wallbeds n’ More in Keller, Texas we want to help make sure you are prepared for your guests, including those who will need to work while traveling. Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your time together. 


How to Prepare for Guests Who will Work While Traveling


Discuss When They Will Need Alone Time


It’s wonderful to have guests visit during the holiday season, whether it be family or friends, but sometimes visitors will have to work during part of their stay. This is becoming increasingly common with more people working remotely. 

Talk about when your guests will need quiet work time before they arrive so that you can plan events accordingly – and give them peace and quiet when they need it. Discuss their schedule beforehand and talk about when they will need time alone versus when you will be able to be together. 

It’s also a good idea to know what sorts of activities (or relaxation styles) they wish to do while visiting. This helps avoid unrealistic expectations around how time is spent during a visit. 


Talk About Their Specific Space Needs 


One thing that many people appreciate if they work while traveling is a private space that is closed off from the rest of the house. If your guest has virtual meetings or other phone calls to make, they will need a quiet, private location away from energetic children and barking dogs. 

The ability to have a room to themselves for work will ensure they can maintain an air of  professionalism and enjoy a stress-free environment during working hours. Your guests are sure to enjoy the convenience and comfort of a guest room and home office in one! 

If you only have space for your murphy bed with desk in a common area such as a den, dining room, or living room, you could discuss ways to get the family out of the house during the times they will need to be working in a quiet environment. 


Check to See What Amenities They Will Need


When you are customizing your wallbed it’s a great idea to choose a murphy bed with desk so that visitors have a large, spacious area to spread out their work. Including certain customizations in your murphy bed furniture will be helpful. 

Try incorporating such conveniences as:

  • Drawers to hold equipment such as charging cords
  • Accent lighting that can spotlight the workspace
  • USB cords built-in to charge phones and computers
  • A cubby for a printer and wifi router to be stored
  • Wardrobe space built-in to the wallbed 

It’s also a good idea to provide some conveniences of a standard office for your guests. Having extra paper, pens, a comfortable chair, and some basic office supplies will make it easier for guests to get their work done efficiently, giving them more time to spend with friends and family while visiting.


Consider Your Space, Room Layout, and What Size Wall Bed You Need


Depending on the size and layout of your room, you’ll want to choose a murphy bed that can accommodate as many guests as possible. That way whether your single friend visits or a couple, the guest room can be utilized for either and remain just as comfortable. We offer wall beds in twin size, XL twin (which is longer than a standard twin), full, queen, and even king size to accommodate either one or two guests.


Don’t Wait Until the Last Minute to Order and Prepare Your Room for Installation


As mentioned before, murphy beds from Wallbeds n’ More are each custom designed and locally made, taking approximately 6 to 14 weeks to build, deliver, and install in your home. If you’re planning on having company for the holidays it’s imperative to start preparing now so that you don’t stress about being ready on time.
