Choosing the right sofa bed for your home can be trickier than you first imagined. Like any piece of furniture, it is important that the sofa not only suits the décor of your home, but also the lifestyle in which you enjoy.
In collaboration with hellosofas.com, here are some simple hints and tips for choosing the right sofa bed for your home.
How much room do you have?
This first question is important, for if you do not have room in your spare bedroom for a sofa bed, then you can instead purchase a high quality sofa bed for your living room.
As most sofa beds are built to a high quality, you can no longer tell the difference between a traditional sofa and a sofa bed when it is not fully extended; meaning that just because the sofa yields a multi-purpose function, it does not mean that it offers any less comfort.
Will you be able to get the furniture into your room?
Though this particular question may sound a little silly, the truth is that if your house is a new build home, or you live in an apartment building, the chances are that the hallways of the building will be narrower, and therefore more difficult to pass through with a large object.
Before you purchase any piece of furniture, remember to not only measure the dimensions of the room in which it is going to be placed, but also the doorways and halls that it must be brought through.
After all, there is nothing worse than disgruntled delivery men having to take back a piece of furniture that they might have just carried up countless flights of stairs.
What is the purpose of the sofa bed?
Many people for example, buy a sofa bed for the friends of their children, who more often than not, will stay over with increased frequency as they get older.
If this is so, then a smaller, perhaps brighter and more accessible sofa bed will probably be more suitable for children.
Also, if you purchase a leather sofa bed, this means that if there are any spills or accidents on the sofa, they will be easier to remove and the chances of a permanent stain are greatly reduced.
If however, you are a couple that is buying a sofa bed for your new apartment, and you regularly expect a few friends to stay over, you may need something slightly more sophisticated than a child-friendly sofa bed.
As there are a wide range styles and fabrics available on the internet, there should be no problem in finding a sofa bed that suits your décor, whether it is fantastically modern, or comfortingly traditional.
