Buying sofa bed sounds like a simple thing to do. However, in reality, there are plenty of factors a buyer needs to understand before deciding ‘I’ll take it.’
How do you like your sofa to work for you?
If you would like to use the sofa partly as bed, then procuring a sofa bed offers a number of advantages. But to those pondering and buying for “just in case” contingency measures, there’s one important caveat to note: sofa bed structure is more firm than traditional living room sofas. While strength means durability, it may also mean less comfortable to seniors and those with back issues.
Choosing your mattress.
Mattresses distinguish one sofa bed from another. Since sofabeds have moving parts, they’re not as solid as conventional ones. Sofabeds are generally classified as follows: innerspring mattresses have coils inside. Memory mattresses do not have coils but the foam conforms with the user’s body. Air-coil mattresses are hybrid types that feature memory foam and innerspring mattress.
Fitting at home.
One of the most practical questions to ask is whether the sofa beds are going to fit through the door. As has been advised in the past, measure your ideal sofabed with ample allowance so it will consider the ceiling, doorway and other areas at home where the furniture will transit. However, also note if parts can be assembled so sofabed can get through the strategic points in one piece or several parts.
Test at the shop.
Never be ashamed to test sofa bed at the shop, even if it means fellow shoppers glance with a funny look. If you’re comfortable with that bed, after testing multiple sleeping positions, that’s what matters. So don’t be ashamed to emulate that Sealy’s commercial — minus the water sprinkler scene — it’s for your comfort and peaceful sleep.
Shopping for your desired sofabed does not only begin with testing out several models. You also need to figure out what’s the best texture, material or colors that will complement your home interiors. Not every fabric or color may be available when you decide to buy late.
