Benefits of Sleepers and Sofa Beds As Extra Beds Sleepers and sofa beds always find a use as extra beds. No matter what size of house you live in there is always room for more sleeping accommodation. Whether it is a planned or an impromptu party, a family gathering or even if the weather gets bad and your visitors for the evening have to stay the night because they cannot drive home, there will eventually come a time when you have to sleep more people than you have beds for. Sure, the youngsters dont mind a night on the floor - in fact many love it - but most of us would rather sleep on a sofa than the floor, no matter how deep the carpet! So if the sofa will occasionally be used as a bed, why not just buy a sofa bed or sleeper to begin with? There are many different types available, many at excellent prices. Sleeper mattresses can be quickly unfolded into a bed when required, and just as easily converted back into a sofa again the next morning. This is a far more comfortable arrangement than sleeping on the floor, and an altogether preferable solution to the problem of an unexpected guest. They are perfect for apartments, attic rooms and anywhere else in your home. How about the kids? They will want their friends in for a sleepover now and again, and rather than having to keep a spare bed taking up space on their bedroom, they are sure to love the idea of having their own sleeper sofa that converts into a spare bed when needed. Your son or daughter will feel a lot more adult with a sofa in their bedroom than a spare bed that is rarely used. An example is a 72 inch long Signature sleeper, which incorporates a 72 x 52 x 5 inch comfortable innerspring mattress, and the mechanism is very easy to lift and return. You can also get sleepers incorporated into sectionals, and the Catnapper three-cushion sleeper sofas can be combined with corner units and recliners or gliders for the perfect queen bed solution to those extra overnight guests while offering the epitome of seating comfort. These are just examples of what is available on the market, and by no means an exhaustive list. Smaller versions are available for children, but they take up so little room as sofas that you are as well purchasing the full sized version so that your kids dont grow out of it. It doesnt seem but an instant that have turned from tiny tots into full-sized teenagers - and why is it that our kids always seem to outgrow us? Thats just another of lifes little mysteries, although maybe we are overfeeding them! Whatever the reason, there seems no point any more in purchasing the small size of anything because our kids are going to need the largest size available in the store! So start saving now - you have been warned! The majority of sofa beds will suit your existing bed linen, and it is just as easy to make up sleepers as it is your own regular bed. They are also comfortable! If have an impression in mind of a lumpy mattress with springs digging into your back then think again. That may have been the situation in the past, but modern sleeper sofas are very comfortable and are also large: you get them up to queen bed size and larger. Then consider the cost. Sleepers are fairly inexpensive to begin with, so think of the value you get with a sofa and bed in one. Imagine the price of having to purchase a sofa, a bed and then a mattress separately compared to the single cost of a sleeper. Even a mattress for a bed can cost you more than a sofa bed would. They come in a wide variety of styles, are upholstered with a wide range of materials including leather, and are available in a number of fabric designs. You are sure to be able to find a sleeper that suits your current upholstery style and room décor. They are no longer large clunky things that look as if they are hiding a bed: modern sofa beds are sleek and streamlined and you simply cannot tell that this is the furniture version of a Transformer - now theres a selling point for the kids if you need one! So if you believe that you will have the need for a spare bed sometime in the future, or are sick listening to people moaning about having to sleep on the couch or even the floor, dont waste your space with a spare bed. Sleepers, sofa beds or sleeping sofas are cost effective, very comfortable and you can use it in any room in the house. Nobody bothers where they sleep - its what they sleep on that matters.
Spare Bed or Sofa Bed: Which Is Best? Many people are unsure whether to buy a spare bed or a sofa bed (sleeping sofas) for their home so they can accommodate unexpected guests. It happens to most couples: they buy their new home with a standard three bedrooms, and have loads of room for overnight visitors. Then they have a family, and are reduced to one spare room. Then another is born, and you are reduced to none. Sure, the kids will share, or even sleep in mom and dads room in an emergency, but what happens when they get older and refuse to share - particularly if you have a boy and a girl? Its not as if new parents wring their hands with the news and wonder what they will do about spare rooms! Thats the last thing on their minds. In such cases, a sofa bed would be the ideal solution. You can purchase it and use it as a sofa for a few years, and then all of a sudden (or so it seems) you need spare sleeping accommodation. Sharing Rooms is Not an Option Unless you forget you have a sofa bed, then that solves your problem. However, if you have the room for it, what is best: to purchase a spare bed or buy a sleeping sofa? You first have to consider where the spare bed will be situated. Your kids wont be happy having an unused bed in their room - not unless it can be used for sleepovers, so thats a good bargaining chip you have. On the other hand, would you be happy with your husbands drunken friend sharing a room with your son or daughter? Thought not! So maybe a sofa bed is the ideal answer. Then again you might think that the standard of comfort you are offering genuine guests and real friends is not acceptable, and that a real bed would better. Think again! Modern sofa beds are not the creaking, lumpy monstrosities of yesteryear. They do not sound like a tiger in pain when you open them, and do not feel like a bed of potatoes when you lie on them. They have a smooth operation, and can be exceptionally comfortable. Certainly well up to what you friends or relatives would expect you to offer them. In fact, some single people with limited space in their home prefer to use a sleeping sofa in their living room and use the sole bedroom as an office or a home gym. lets assume that you have decided to purchase a sofa bed. What are your options? Here are one or two ideas you could consider. Using Sectional Sleepers Sectional sleepers can be incorporated into living room sectional furniture. Many people choose sectionals because they not only make good use of small spaces, but also enable the corners and walls of larger rooms to be used for seating when required. Sectional components include chairs and sofas with specific functions, such as recliners, lift chairs for the elderly and disabled, and also rockers and sliders. Another optional function of sectional furniture is the sofa bed. You can have your guests sleep on the sofa itself, or you can purchase a sofa bed as a component of the arrangement. This is useful in an emergency. For some people an emergency arises when their kids have grown up and all bedrooms taken. Sectional sleepers then become the emergency bed in times of need! Sofa Beds or Sleeping Sofas Sleeping sofas are the same as sofa beds: sofas that can be pulled out to provide a double bed. The double could be a tight squeeze, depending on the width of the sofa, but who complains when the alternative is the floor! If offered the option of a sofa bed or a recliner, many people will decide on the recliner if they already have adequate sleeping accommodation. However, just as many tend to go for the sleeping sofa because they tend to get unexpected guests or hold regular parties when some are unable to make their way home at the end. Questions to Ask Before Purchasing Sofa Beds There is a wide choice of sofa beds available, and the way to choose the most appropriate for your needs is first to visit an online furniture store and check what is available. Once you see something you like, you should visit the companys showroom and check the item over in the flesh. Ask the questions you should ask before you make a decision. Some of these questions are: • How does it convert to a bed? • Can it easily be pulled out or does it take some strength? • Are there any recommended mattresses - or any you cannot use? • Is the mattress folded with the bed, or does it have to be put on once it is unfolded? • What maintenance is required? • What if the mechanism fails? • What space does it take up when converted? These might sound like obvious questions, but not all sofa beds work the same way. Some pull out straight from the back forwards, while others are converted from the side. It is essential to know this, because it can affect how the sofa is placed in your room. They generally extend in one direction or another, and it is important that you understand how yours works so you can allow the necessary free space in your sitting room. There are several less important aspects of sofa beds of which you should be aware, but the question of whether you should buy a spare bed or a sofa bed can only be answered by yourself. Most would opt for the sofa bed.
