Sofa beds or sofa sleepers, as what others may call it, are very useful in your home especially if you don’t have enough space to accommodate guests staying over the night or throughout the week. Not everybody is lucky and wealthy enough to have guest rooms in their small and humble abode. So the next best option is to buy convertible furniture, the likes of a foam sofa bed.
These sofa beds, as what the name gives away, serve as sofas during the day and beds at night. To have them helps you a lot in terms of saving space. With them, you need not to worry about frequent sleepovers or having a relative to stay for days or weeks. With furniture like it, hosting a sleepover won’t be that hard.
There’s a wide selection of sofa bed mattresses out in the market. So many that you may even find it difficult to pick one especially if you still don’t have a favorite or a fixed choice. A foam sofa bed is one of the most known types of sleeper sofas. Apart from it though, there are still other cool ones though than you can check.
There is the pull-out type which are said to be the traditional type and have been in the market for several decades now. These sofa beds are called that way because of the way you make it work. For you to turn it to a bed, you have to remove first the sitting cushions. Then after that, pull out the mattress which is found inside the sofa.
They are available in four different sizes – queen, full twin and single. There are also smaller ones known as chair beds and loveseat beds. Most of the foam sofa beds belong to this type. Other kinds are futons and clic clac sofa beds. Futons come with a lot of frame and cushion choices. From wood frames to metal frames to spring cushions to wool cushions to foam cushions, you can opt for what you think best suits your needs.
Clic clac sofa beds, on the other hand, function in yet another unique way. The area where you lean your back is being clicked down to form the other half of that sofa bed (the first half of which is the mattress inside) together with the seating part. Many say that this type equally functions as a bed and a sofa unlike other sleeper sofas which work better either as a sofa or a bed.
Other cool types of sofa beds on sale include those made from other countries like Europe and China, those that are perfect in living rooms with a fireplace installed and those that they call latex and coil sofa bed mattresses.
