Choosing a Sofa Bed for Your Home


How would you go about choosing a sofa bed? Some people choose one simply through need rather than appeal. They may know they’ll need a spare place for guests to sleep from time to time, so they find an adequate sofa bed and buy it.

But why go for adequate when you can go for something much better?

Sofa Beds

The key point to remember about sofa beds is that they don’t need to be basic or uncomfortable – either as a sofa or as a bed. They can be comfortable, attractive, solid and just as able to last for years as a regular sofa.

Whatever size or shape of sofa bed you want, make sure you get a metal action one. This is stronger and better made than a simple foam fold out sofa bed. If you’re looking to make it last for as long as possible and provide comfort as an everyday sofa and a regular sofa bed as well, metal action is the place to start.

2 Seater Sofa Beds

Even the smallest home has room for one of the many 2 seater sofa beds on the market today. It’s always wise to measure up before buying anything, so you can be sure of picking the right sofa. There’s nothing worse than falling in love with a particular sofa bed, only to find you don’t actually have the room to accommodate it.

Think about the style you want too. Are you looking for an oversized 2 seater sofa bed with chunky arms that feels as if it is hugging you? Maybe you want something smaller and more formal, that you’d never believe was a sofa bed in the first place. Get an idea straight in your head of what you’re looking for so you can narrow down the options right from the start.

Corner Sofa Beds

If you want something bigger than a simple two seater sofa bed, why not check out the range of corner sofa beds on the market instead? These are great for all styles of décor as they come in both fabric options and leathers. Whatever décor you have and whatever colour scheme you’ve opted for, a corner sofa bed can be the best finishing touch to your room.

Corner sofa beds typically offer more seating when you’re using it as a sofa, because you get maybe four or more seats to make the most of. It opens out into a nice sized double bed too, and when you have guests it will take a matter of just moments to transform your sofa into a bed complete with bedding.

The important bit is to consider how you want the room to look when the sofa bed is being used as a sofa. This will be how you’ll use it most of the time, but be sure to get something you can quickly and easily transform into a sofa bed too. This is the trick to getting something you’ll love and be happy with for a long time to come.
