How to Find a Cheap Sofa Bed A sofa bed is a useful piece of furniture for any household that wants to have sleeping space for guests, but doesnt have a guest room. However, we all know that a poor quality sofa bed, no matter how little it costs, is a bad buy. After all, just about everyones slept on one that was thin, lumpy, had steel bars in uncomfortable places, or was otherwise unpleasant. How do you find a cheap sofa bed that wont feel cheap when you have guests over? Heres a look at some tips. First, know what youre going to use the sofa for the most. You see most makers of sofa beds focus either on comfortable sleeping or comfortable sitting. Its rare to find someone wholl consider both. So decide if youll mostly use this as a sofa, or if youll mostly use it as a bed. Be realistic - sofa beds are never the very best at being either type of furniture. Have a good idea of what youre willing to pay before you head out shopping, too. A decent sofa is going to be at least six hundred dollars at the cheapest. Sofa beds under five hundred might look cheap, but theyre not really worth it in the long run. Its usually a better idea to wait for a more expensive sofa bed to go on sale than it is to settle for one thats going to be lumpy and uncomfortable. Decide which type of sofa bed you want, too. Theres the traditional pullout model, a folding futon, and a davenport. All are considered "sofa-beds" and all of them have their own unique characteristics and quirks. Do a little research in advance so you know what to rule our right away. Add in the cost of a mattress pad and fitted sheet for most sofa beds, since you dont want to stain the material. Futons with separate covers are easy to clean, but upholstered sofa beds can be tricky to remove stains from. When you go to the store, make sure you can get the sales person to open and close the product in front of you. Try it yourself, too. If you cant do this, be suspicious. This cheap sofa bed might not really be a bargain. No one wants to use a sofa bed that wont operate smoothly. Likewise, if the sales rep wont let you lie on the sofa bed for more than a few seconds, its probably because they dont want to learn whats wrong with the mattress. Spend a little time on the bed to make sure its comfortable. Try moving it and lifting it, too - especially if youll need to move it around at home. Measure the mattress to make sure its a "real" full, queen, or twin; so that you know your sheets will fit correctly. Never bargain hunt on a price-only basis. A good cheap sofa bed will be one thats got all the features you need, is comfortable, and easy to manipulate. Anything else is really just an expensive nuisance. Take the time to learn what youre likely to get for a given price, and then look for bargains in that range. After all, if your furniture looks too good to be true, it probably is. Shop smart to get a great bargain on a new sofa bed for your guests.
Sofa Beds As the name suggests, a sofa bed is a piece of furniture that can be used both as a sofa and a bed. When one needs to use it as a bed, all that has to be done is to pull out the bed from under the sofa, and voila, a bed is ready for sleeping! When buying a sofa bed, it is better to consider the size of the sofa bed that will best suit you--in other words, you need to determine who is going to use the bed, that is if it is a couple or an individual. The size of the room also has to be taken into consideration and of course if you have sheets to fit it. Make sure that the screws of the legs are rightly screwed in and that the corners are made from wood and with corner blocks and glue. It is of no point to buy a sofa bed with nailed, stapled or unbraced joints as these may only loosen and wobble. Upon removing the cushions of the sofa bed, you should not be able to see any wood, but instead, smooth, upholstered surfaces. If the wood can be seen, the sofa bed will not prove to be comfortable. To check on the comfort of the sofa bed, it would be better to sit on the center cushion and on the end cushion for a few minutes and to lie on it as you would once you buy it, to make sure that both spots of the sofa bed are comfortable for you. Another important feature of the sofa bed is if the bed can be pulled out smoothly. If it cant, you might as well continue looking for a sofa bed. It is always better for the skeleton of the sofa bed to be made of large diameter tubing as this provides the necessary strength. The mounting plate of the sofa bed should also be bolted and not screwed on to the sofas frame for additional strength. The ultimate test for the comfort of the sofa bed would to have a large companion test the mattress of the sofa bed; he would indeed be able to tell if the mattress if inferior if he can feel the uncomfortable support bar of the sofa.
