When Lounge Has To Bunk Up For Visitors

Using lounge furniture as additional sleeping space needs a lot of careful thought.  If hordes of visitors descend on the family home at Christmas and other high days, are any of the going to be using the lounge area for sleeping quarters.  Is there a downstairs cloakroom for them and is there room to put their clothes and baggage when not at night.

It is quite often a good idea for the host and hostess to shift themselves downstairs and use a sofa bed in the sitting or dining room and let the guests use their master suite upstairs – that way any facilities not quite coming up to hotel standard can be easily overlooked and ignored but the guests have all that they need.
