Purchasing a sofa bed isn’t for everyone. It can be great if it suits your lifestyle, or it can be a nuisance if it just doesn’t jive with your style and comfort. Either way, there are a few factors to consider before making your selection. Here are a few pros and cons to help you decide.
Sofa beds are a lifestyle piece. It is a multi-purpose piece of furniture that can be down right handy. If your life tends to see frequent visitors crashing at your place, then this could be the perfect addition to your living space. Rather than have them sleep on the couch, floor or even worse – your own bed – you have the convenience of an extra bed that you can pull out in a breeze and tuck away once they head back home.
These sofas tend to be heavy and bulky. They are after all, concealing a bed within the frame, so it makes sense for them to be heavier than your average sofa. If you’re living in a tight space, or have a large, steep set of stairs to consider, that could easily influence your decision.
They provide added comfort from the floor or a couch. When you do need to provide housing for a night or three to a friend, it’s an additional bit of comfort and better alternative from sleeping on a tiny couch or uncomfortable floor.
The mattresses can be extremely uncomfortable. Since the mattress doesn’t have much support, some of the mattresses within a sofa bed can be more uncomfortable than the couch or even the floor. Additionally, the bar and springs are commonly felt in some designs. So if you do purchase one, it’s important to not opt for the cheapest one, or your friend may be hopping in to share your bed despite it.
There are various designs available to meet your style. Sofa beds have come a long way in design. You can find them available in a multitude of styles and designs to suit your preference. Whether it’s black sleek leather, or a funky bright colour to match your décor – you can be sure to find what you’re looking for.
The bottom line is that when debating about the purchase of a sofa bed, it’s important to consider the pros and cons. Before you make a selection, go through this list to gain a clearer vision of its purpose and whether or not it will fit in and make sense for your lifestyle.
