Sometimes, we feel as if limited living space limits our hospitality. Offering your out-of-town buddy your couch was fine in college, but what about your mother coming to stay? If you don’t have a guest room, having overnight guests can feel difficult or awkward. A sofa bed may be the perfect solution for smaller spaces.
Sofa beds–also known as sleeper sofas–come in three basic formats: the futon, the traditional sofa bed, and the corner sofa bed.
Before you purchase your sofa bed, you need to measure your space to be sure it will fit. Luckily, sofa beds come in four sizes to suit a variety of spaces: chair (which unfolds into a mattress slightly smaller than a twin-sized mattress), twin, full, and queen. Nearly all sleeper sofa mattresses are a little shorter than your standard mattress. Because they are holding a mattress inside, the seats on a sofa bed may be firmer than the typical sofa, so test the seat cushions before purchasing your new sleeper sofa.
Just like choosing a mattress for your bed, be sure to try out the mattress for your sofa bed. Don’t be afraid to try various positions on the in-store models to be sure you can find a mattress and frame that is right for you. Depending on your chosen model, you will have three mattress styles to choose from: inner-spring, memory foam, and air-coil.
Don’t wait until the last minute to purchase a sofa bed as it can take two months for the store to order it in your chosen color and material.
