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 Bed Mattresses - Differences Between Sofa Bed Mattresses Sofa bed mattresses are often underused but that doesnt mean they should not be comfortable. If you are in the market for a new one, there are several factors that you should consider when making the purchase. The most important factor is the type of mattress you choose. The most popular types of mattresses include memory foam, latex, foam, air and innerspring. Each of these mattresses vary in price and comfort. In deciding between the three, you should consider whether your sofa bed will be used often as a main bed or if it will be used on occasion only when guests are visiting your home. If its used frequently, or if you pride yourself on having a comfortable sofa mattress, we would recommend the memory foam and latex. Memory foam sofa bed mattresses are usually recommended for those that want a medium firmness mattress. Doctors often suggest memory foam mattresses to patients who have back problems or other ailments. These types of beds react to your bodys temperature and then mold around the curves of your body. Because of this feature, memory foam is great for relieving pressure on joints and in the back. Due to their unique construction, they also reduce the effects of motion if more than one person is sleeping in the bed. One thing to note, if you are considering this type of mattress, make sure you choose one that is made of open cell memory foam. The closed cell memory foam will overheat as the bed responds to your body temperature. Latex sofa bed mattresses tend to be the best option for those that like a firm mattress and who like the idea of having an eco friendly product. Latex sofa mattresses are also the most costly because of their manufacturing process. These types of beds are made from rubber trees from Sri Lanka or other Southeast Asia regions. This bed also offers other benefits such as being hypo-allergenic, resistant to dust mites and ecologically friendly. Natural latex beds will keep their shape over time while synthetic latex beds deteriorate more quickly. Synthetic latex also discolors easily if exposed to sunlight. If you choose this type, go with natural latex. Foam sofa bed mattresses arent as comfortable as memory foam or latex, but they do a better job hiding the feel of the metal bar in a sofa bed than an innerspring mattress. Like a firm bed? They tend to be towards the harder side because they dont have a comfort layer like the two other models. Air Sofa Bed Mattresses allow you to change the firmness of the bed by pumping more air into the mattress. We dont recommend them because they tend to leak and its a pain having to deflate the bed after each use only to blow it up again when the next guest arrives. The innerspring or coil sofa mattress is the cheapest and also the least comfortable. Youll feel both the coils and the metal bar when lying on a coil sofa mattress. Because it is the most inexpensive, many manufacturers use this as the default mattress in the sofa beds they sell. For obvious reasons, we dont recommend this option as a replacement.
