What is a Sleeper Sofa?
A sleeper sofa is a sofa with a secret! The sofa has a pull-out mattress that can convert into a bed. This mattress, which is hidden, either pops or folds out. When you ae buying a new sofa why not consider buying a sleeper sofa as it can serve a dual purpose? Here are some basic factors to consider before deciding on the sleeper sofa that’s best for you.
1. Do you want a Sleeper Sofa or a Sofa Bed?
Although many people think that a sleeper sofa is the same as a sofa bed, there are differences. Most sofa beds are similar to futons. This type of furniture lies flat, forming a bed, and doesn’t have a traditional mattress. However, sleeper sofas include a buried mattress within their frame that you can easily unfold or fold when needed turning your sofa into an actual bed complete with mattress.
2. How the Sleeper Sofa Will Be Used Will your sleeper sofa mainly be used for occasional overnight guests?
Maybe you want to use it as an extra bedroom for a family member. Lets also consider that it could be used as a place to sleep when someone in your home becomes ill and doesn’t want to spread germs to their partner…. Or is in the doghouse (lol) If you plan to mostly use your new sofa for sleeping, then it’s even more important to consider the comfort of the mattress.
3. What size is the Sleeper Sofa?
Before you buy a piece of furniture including your sleeper sofa, first you must measure the size of the room, as well as the doorways and hallways and any other things that will limit the space of your furniture. A queen-size sleeper sofa is the most popular. At dot the queen size sleepers come in a wide range of fabrics and styles and have matching furniture to complement your room. Additionally, queen-size sleeper sofas can easily accommodate three people for sitting, while providing enough room and comfort for two sleepers. These sleeper sofas are about 90 inches long and 84 inches wide when opened up.
4. What is the Style of Your Room?
When deciding on a sleeper sofa, think about the style of the room where you plan to put your new furniture. If your room has more of a contemporary style, look for a sofa with neutral colors, clean lines, and natural materials. For a more traditional theme, choose a sofa with more earthy colours. Don’t forget to add some plush colourful throw pillows to make the sleeper sofa even more comfy regardless if its being used as a sofa or as a bed.
5. Is Your Sleeper Sofa Comfortable?
Regardless if you are using the sleeper sofa as a sofa or as a bed, you will need it to be comfortable. Test it. Sit on it. Lay on it. Make sure you fit in it. Beyond that always make sure that the sleep sofa is easy to open and close and that you know how. There is nothing worse than taking something home thinking you know what to do and then when you are ready to go to bed and instead you are cramped using just the sofa to sleep on.
