Sofa Beds: a Versatile, Comfortable and Stylish Solution

Posted on July 5, 2017

How to pick a sofabed

The beauty of a good sofa bed is that it’s literally two pieces of furniture in one: a stylish sofa during the day and a comfortable bed to sleep in at night. The versatility of a piece of furniture like this means not only does it fulfill multiple needs, it’s also an amazing space-saver for smaller living areas.

The most obvious benefit of a sofa bed is the ability to comfortably host out-of-town guests in your home rather than having them stay in a hotel. If you don’t have a guest room, a sofa bed allows you to turn that office where you pay bills into a spare bedroom when the in-laws come for the weekend; your living room can be transformed into an occasional guest bedroom for unexpected overnight guests or you can put one in the kids room as a spare bed for sleepovers with their friends.

Guests aside, it’s nice to have a spare bed to crawl into when your mate is snoring to the beat of the band or one of you has the flu.

Looking Good

As with any other piece of furniture in your home, the style you choose will be determined by the amount of space you have to work with and the overall decor of your room. A stylish sofa bed can enhance the look of your living room or provide the perfect addition to a home office or den.

Keep in mind, however, that when it comes to comfort, focusing on the quality of materials and construction rather than just design is key. Ideally, you want to combine comfort with practicality and beauty. BrandSource’s wide range of sofa bed designs and styles will allow you to do just that.

Test Drive Your Choice

It’s a good idea to test out a sofa bed before purchasing it. The key factor to keep in mind is construction as a good hardwood frame will ensure your sofa bed stands the test of time. Along with checking the frame, make sure to test the opening and closing of the bed mechanism. Does it stick? Does it squeak? It shouldn’t. And finally, the most important of all, you want a quality mattress to ensure a good night’s sleep to your guests.

Hopefully, these tips will help you choose the perfect sofa bed—remember, your choice will affect your success as a host, but be careful, if your sofa bed is too comfortable, your guests may never want to leave!
