Ever since I was a kid, I have loved the sleeper sofa. What an ingenious invention: It’s like the superhero of sofas: By day it’s a sofa, by night it’s a bed; Mega-Couch!!! If you have never experienced a sleeper sofa, this article can help. Be sure to note that there are all kinds of sofas that can become beds, and like anything else you can buy; not all sleeper sofas are created equal. Some are difficult to sleep on without sleep aids, most are passable for sleeping, and some sleeper sofas are even comfortable. I have a sleeper sofa in my home and I love it almost — almost — as much as my corner sofa, and even my in-laws love sleeping on it.
Buy a Sleeper Sofa
As I said; one sleeper sofa is not like another, not all are created equal. The starter sleeper sofa is known to many a college student, and will always have a place in young adult communities; this is called the futon couch. Futons are versatile and last a while for what they cost. You can’t really call the thing a sofa, but it is totally sleep-ready. Okay, it is not the most comfortable thing in the world. When I was younger, I slept on a few futons, and I can’t recall one I would say was comfortable. Still, here is how most futons work. When your futon is in the seat position, you bend down, lift the front of the wooden or metal frame on which the futon sits, then pull, and the futon slides into a bed.
Not ultra-comfy, but definitely simple and easy.
The best kind of sleeper sofa is not nearly as obvious as the futon. You want a sleeper sofa that does not look like it holds a bed within. That is the best kind. The one in my home is plush leather, with over sized cushions. You can see more on offer here. I love it, kids love it.
If you are in the market for a sleeper sofa, the best place to find one is online. Do your research online because there are so many sites selling furniture that you will find a great sofa on the Internet; there are lots of comfortable sofa beds online to choose from.
Do a thorough search, and you will find a truly comfortable sleeper sofa.
