Sleeper Sofa Vs Sofa Bed

Sleeper sofas offer the ideal solution when searching for multifunctional furniture that serves both as seating and guest beds, making it the ideal addition for apartments, small spaces and those who frequently host guests overnight. Before shopping around for one however, there are a few key factors you should keep in mind before making your purchase.

How Will the Sofa Bed Be Used? Depending on your needs and desires, you may opt for either an inbuilt mattress sofa bed or one without one. Mattress type makes a difference too – memory foam offers pressure point relief while polyurethane foam mattresses provide affordable support for back or stomach sleeping positions. Innerspring mattresses offer traditional coils while latex can offer a bouncier experience that’s environmentally-friendly.

One important thing to keep in mind when purchasing a sleeper sofa is whether or not you will only use it occasionally for guests, or need it on an ongoing basis. Sleeper sofas are often found in spare bedrooms or offices; they’re also useful when someone in the household becomes sick so as to contain germs more efficiently than sharing beds between rooms.

If you plan on regularly using your sofa bed as a sleeping surface, we recommend selecting a full-size model. Twin-size sleeper sofas may work for limited spaces but adult guests might find them too small for comfortable sleeping arrangements. That is why many of the sleeper sofas we carry offer full-size mattresses which can comfortably fit two adults at the same time.

How Much Does a Sleeper Sofa Cost? Sleeper sofas tend to be more costly than sofa beds; however, you might be able to score a bargain during sales events or around holidays.

Before making your final choice, take the time to visit several sofas and beds in person. Sit on each sofa to ensure it meets your comfort standards, then test out different mattresses to see how they feel for sleeping. It is also advisable to examine how easy it is to open and close its mechanism. Your sofa bed must be easy to operate; otherwise, other furniture will likely have to be moved around for it to function correctly. Don’t settle for something which makes the transition cumbersome or is difficult to use. Make sure the color and style of the sofa will complement the rest of your room to ensure it fits in seamlessly with its surroundings. If you can’t decide between styles, a neutral-colored sleeper sofa may be easier for you to integrate into any decor; add pillows for color contrast when desired! Alternatively, when ready, bolder hues could add depth.
