Tips for Choosing a Sofa Bed That Your Guests Will Love

Posted on August 22, 2016

How can you find the right sofa bed that will fit all your needs and make your guests extend their stay? Here are a few tips.

A good sofa bed will provide sitting comfort during the day and sleeping comfort at night.  When choosing a sofa bed, you need to consider the space you have, your budget and your overall décor.

What size?

You must choose a sofa bed that will be both functional as a sofa and as a bed. What is the use of a sofa bed if, when folded out, your guests cannot get a good night’s sleep? Your sofa bed needs to fit in your available space properly so it can easily be used at any time of day.

What style?

The style of your sofa bed will depend on your living space. A stylish sofa bed will enhance the look of homes and apartments whereas a simple good quality futon will blend harmoniously into the décor of a modern and minimalist apartment. When you are looking for comfort, you have to focus on the quality of materials and construction rather than design. Look for a classy sofa bed that will embellish your home, but still provide great comfort.

How much will it cost?

Although there are many affordable sofa beds on the market, like a futon that can also double as a sofa, they won’t all offer the same quality of sleep. If your sofa bed costs less than a bed of the same size, your guests will probably not be sleeping over again. If you can afford to pay more and purchase a sofa bed of better quality for your sitting and sleeping comfort, your investment will be well worth it for your guests and family. The difference lies in the choice of the mattress. There are various levels of quality and for a few dollars more, you get a thicker and better mattress … and thankful guests!
