Until I move into a warehouse space and have lots of strong men to help me, I am using the blow up bed method to furnish my vacant bedrooms. Not only are they easy to store, set up and transport, it is also cost effective not only for me but for the renter and as long as no one jumps or tries to sleep on it for all intents and purposes it looks like a real bed.
I try to check on my furnishings in vacant properties at least once a month and I have to say I have not needed to add air to this bed once. Unfortunately, due to the price point, location and other town homes for sale in this particular area this lovely home has yet to sell so the mattress has been in use for months. Denise Malden fellow Active Rainer and local staging friend and owner of Interior Concept Designs recommended this brand to me and she was spot on in her recommendation.
I have the air mattress sitting on top of 12 boxes with the bed skirt tacked to them. I was not able to use the bottom sheet as the mattress was to large so this doesn't work for the "spa look" beds where you want the comforter turned down. I had also purchased some wood art to use as the headboard however, due to the type of walls I could not get a nail through the wall but fortunately could switch out the original headboard idea for a picture.
Purchase this Coleman Raised Quickbed (airbed with electric pump) from WalMart for about $50.00 and didn't take longer then 20 minutes to fill.
