Buying Guide for Sofa Beds

Every home should have sofa beds, especially  for people who live in tiny homes with not enough space to put furniture. In this modern day, many people don’t think about starting a family as soon as they get a job. As a result, they don’t feel the need to have a big house that has enough rooms for parents and children. Sometimes their houses are even so tiny that there’s no space to place a sofa and a bed. To overcome this problem, some manufacturers combine two pieces of important furniture: a sofa and a bed that are good doing both their functions. It is called sofa bed.


A sofa bed is a reliable furniture with flexible functions. During the day, it can be a comfortable couch for watching TV. During the night, we can use it as  a comfortable bed. In the past, sofa beds might not be comfortable enough for these double functions. However, today, manufacturers create sofa beds. How do we find the best sofa beds for us? Here are some tips.

Think about how often we will use it

Don’t only think about how much you will sleep on the mattress, but also how often you will use it as the sofa. Where will we put it? Will it be the main living room sofa? If we use it on a daily basis, we need to buy the ones strong enough to bear all the wear and tear.

If you want to own stylish couches, don’t compromise with sofa mattresses.  There are slimmer mattresses that are good for occasional use. There are also mattresses with more thickness made of sprung or memory foam which is more durable.

Think about the available space

This is an important thing to do. Since people who buy sofa beds mostly do it because there is a limitation of space in their homes, it is important to measure the available space and estimate how a sofa bed will occupy the room. I always check the width when it’s fully opened out.

Besides, I will always remember to make sure that the sofa beds can enter the house. Some doorways and stairwells are narrow. So it is important to get all measurement.
