Whether you call it a sleeper, a sleep sofa, or a sleeper sofa, it’s undeniably the most versatile piece of furniture you could own.
With a sleeper sofa in your living room, you’ll no longer have to have overnight guests sleep on your couch or a crappy and cumbersome mattress. Your bed and mattress quality directly affect your sleep so it’s best if you purchase a sleeper sofa for your guests the next time they stay over.
Unlike traditional couches, which can cause sleep disturbances and insomnia, modern sleeper sofas are highly comfortable and functional. You can transform any room into a guestroom or a bedroom by furnishing it with a premium quality sleeper sofa.
Here’s what you need to look for in one.
You have multiple options when you need to purchase a sofa that can also be turned into a bed. Some popular choices include sleeper sofas, sofa beds, and futons. With futons, you’ll find a backrest that can be folded down to form a flat surface. Whereas, sofa beds offer seat cushions that can be spread out into a temporary mattress. Sleeper sofas, however, have a full mattress placed inside the sofa. The mattress in a sleeper sofa is typically installed on a platform base that can be positioned by pulling on a handle.
Typically, sleeper sofas are equipped with a queen-sized or twin mattress concealed inside them. However, some sleeper sofas can also break apart into two separate beds. You need to consider both the width and the length of the mattress before purchasing a sleeper sofa.
If you’re purchasing it for taller folks, then make sure the mattress doesn’t fold flat with an arm set at the head and foot of the bed as it can be highly cumbersome for them.
Check the Dimensions
Can your chosen sleeper sofa easily fit in your house? Typically, full sleeper sofas are heavier and larger than standard sofas. If you plan on moving out, try to measure your sleeper sofa dimensions when the mattress is folded. Make sure that it can easily fit in your room and can easily be moved through the doorways, elevator, or staircase.
Also, it’s better to check the dimensions when it’s unfolded. Check whether it leaves sufficient room for people to get in or out of the bed from all sides.
