However, it's important to remember that the holiday season is meant to be a time of joy, gratitude, and connection with your loved ones. This is why it's crucial to prioritize self-care and maintain a sense of sanity during this busy period.

We gather few steps Martha Stewart recommends implementing in order to avoid stress and stay focus so, you can enjoy this magic time of the year along with your loved ones.

  1. Give yourself enough time in advance of the celebration to plan out as many details as you can.

  4. Choose a theme and stick with it.
  5. Utilize what you already have in your house for décor.

  7. Ask for help if you need to.

Additionally, we can’t leave you without giving you other helpful tips on saving space offering your guests a comfortable place to sleep when the night calls for.

To make your guests feel comfortable at home, there are a few things you can do to save space for example, durable, high-quality futons with warranties are a great choice. 

Futons for instance, are an affordable and convenient addition to any room. They are known for their dual functionality, as they can serve as a couch or loveseat by day and be folded into a bed at night for overnight guests. To help you select the futon that’s right for you here are our best recommendations:

They are great for playrooms, bonus rooms, dorm rooms, and even for home offices and living rooms.

The wood-framed futon is perfect for small spaces.

Each one of our collections comes in even more color options for both the fabric and wood. So, we encourage you to browse through all our Futons to consider all your options. This metal-framed futon is perfect for those who prefer a minimalist design.

If you need more than just a classic futon, then consider buying our Panama - Anchor Collection futon or our Bahama - Anchor Collection futon. These two products have extra storage on the bottom of the futon. Great for storing extra blankets, pillows, and sheets for your guests.

Another great option is a Murphy Bed Cabinet.

Murphy Bed Cabinets are an excellent way to save space in your home while still providing a comfortable sleeping area for your guests. These cabinets can be easily installed in any room of your home and come in a variety of styles and finishes to match your décor.

There are benefits to having one of our Murphy Bed Cabinets, besides welcoming your guests in a very unique type of bed that is comfortable and versatile. They provide new features including having a foldout night table tray on both sides of your Murphy Chest. Plus, there are two USB and two 110v outlets on the other side of the tray. Ideal for charging your phone and other devices while you sleep!

Also, look around for best deals on bedroom furniture such as, delivery, rebates, and comfortable mattresses.

Furthermore, when shopping for furniture, it's important to look around for stores with a solid reputation and a minimum of 4-star reviews.

With these tips in mind, you'll be able to create a comfortable space that your guests will love during the holiday season.
