How to Buy a Sofa Bed? Purchasing a sofa bed is a great idea for those times you may find yourself needing an extra bed for unexpected company. Choosing the correct one is important if you want it to last and be serviceable for many years. One way to choose a good sofabed is to check the mattress. The quality of the mattress needs to be comfortable as well as being sturdy. If possible, find one that has an inner springs used as part the construction. This will allow the person sleeping on it to get a good nights rest and will support more weight. It doesnt have to be a thick mattress to provide comfort. Check the frame of the sofa bed to see what type it has. The longest lasting types are made of hard wood. Try to avoid purchasing one that is constructed of a soft wood, as it may crack easily. Make sure you measure the space the new sofa bed will be placed in. Bring the measurements with you or keep them written down so you will be able to remember the size that will fit properly. Make sure you find out what the measurements are with the sofa bed opened as well as the measurements of when it closed. If you are using your sofa bed frequently be sure not to place heavy pieces of furniture in front of it, and make sure that there is room to let the bed out completely without bumping into something. Remember that when it isnt in use as a bed it will be used as a sofa, so be sure you find the color, style and type you would choose if you were buying a regular sofa. Make sure it is comfortable to sit on and that it matches the other decor in your house. Its a good idea to also make sure the sofa itself is a high quality. You will want it to be able to withstand the regular uses of a sofa. It would help if it is made of a stain resistant fabric also. Check out the mechanics to make sure it opens and closes easily. The sofabed should do so without making noise and without having to tug and pull at it. It should open smoothly. Try to find a sofa bed that includes a locking bar that has to be disengaged in order for the bed to be allowed to fold up. Make sure there are no rough edges anywhere on the sofa bed. Every part of the sofa and bed should be without any sharp edges or rough spots. Check the mattress to make sure there are no hard spots or lumps. Make sure the sofa cushions are firm and made of a good quality material. Following these tips can help you purchase the perfect sofa bed that will be serviceable for many years
What To Consider When Looking For Comfortable Contemporary Sofa Beds Finding contemporary sofa beds used to be difficult, now the difficulty is deciding which one is best. The development of the sofa bed market means that it is now possible to get a stylish sofa which is also a bed. So what should you be looking for in a sleeper sofa? Firstly you have to work out what you can fit in your space. Size really does matter with a sofa bed, more so than with a standard sofa as the size of the sofa defines the size of the bed. There are a couple different basic formats for a sleeper sofa. The first, and my favorite is where the bed is folded up and when not in use sits inside the frame of the sofa. These are particularly good for sofas which are going to be used all the time, as the comfort of the bed is independent of the sofa seating. These will usually have a metal frame and the mattress will be separate and supported on a mesh or fabric which is pulled taut with springs holding onto the metal frame. This makes for a very comfortable bed as it is a proper mattress with an independent support system. The second design of sofa bed is where the bed forms part or all of the seating. This category can be broken down into two further sections. The first is the old style foam sofa seats which fold out to form a bed on the floor. These are fine if neither the sofa or the bed are going to be used a lot. However, with consistent use the foam compacts and then you have a sofa bed which is not comfortable as either a sofa or as a bed. The second is the design which has been inspired by the futon market. This is where the back and seat of the sofa flatten out for form a bed. This can suffer from the same problems as the foam bet, but they are easier to solve. With the futon style beds the mattress is usually detachable; this is actually rather essential. By having a detachable mattress it means that you can turn it around. If you thing about the wear on a sofa the cushions on the seat always compact and suffer significantly more wear than the cushions on the back. So if these were to become one bed, half the bed would be much more worn than the other. Hence you need a mattress which is detachable and can be rotated to ensure that wear is even across it. The other advantage of a detachable mattress is that it is replaceable when it gets old. It is also easier to get covers for and hence you can keep it looking clean and contemporary. So the key to choosing between the many contemporary sofa beds is actually to be practical about what you are getting and to consider how much wear it will take and where the wear will be. Once you have established this you will be able to work out if your sofa and your bed will be a good investment or will quickly become uncomfortable.
