Sofa Beds – When You Need the Best of Both

Sofa Beds – When You Need the Best of Both

Sofa Beds

Many people see sofa beds as a compromise. Their perception is that a sofa bed is neither one piece of furniture nor another, so it must compromise in some aspect of its creation. Is it as comfortable as a traditional sofa or as cosy as a traditional bed? Do you have to compromise on aesthetics to accommodate two pieces of furniture in one? Be prepared to throw out all your previous misconceptions about sofa beds because, thanks to advances in engineering and manufacturing, a modern sofa bed offers dual functionality without compromising on comfort, appearance or ease of use.

Time For Bed

Having a sofa bed puts you in control of the space you live in. Whether your living space is limited or you live in a roomy home, it is always useful to have an extra sleeping area. However, having a sofa bed means you don’t have to dedicate that space as a bedroom and lose any dual functionality the room may have. Instead, you can transform it into its ‘secret identity’ and use it as a piece of functional and aesthetic furniture when it is not needed to sleep on. Because of the ergonomic designs employed by the manufacturers of sofa beds, modern models can complement virtually any living space. Instead of having to tuck it away in a back room only to haul it out when needed, contemporary sofa beds are available in a range of styles and materials ranging from rustic comfort to the sheer luxury offered by a leather sofa bed.

In addition, modern advances mean that they are compact when folded up, yet offer sleeping space that is more than adequate for anyone.

Less Effort

Older sofa beds were creaky, squeaky contraptions that took an age to transform into either of their forms. Modern sofa beds are designed with ease in mind. They are easy to open and close, often in one movement, and some are designed so that you can transform them either way without having to remove the cushions. You even have a choice of mattresses to achieve the comfort that suits you best. Whether you like the support of a sprung mattress or the dreamy cushioning offered by memory foam, your sofa bed can achieve all that you want from both a sofa and a bed. Some even have storage built into the arms, so that you can keep duvets, pillows and blankets to hand without taking up precious cupboard space elsewhere.

Bed Heads

Owners of sofa beds are far more prepared for the unexpected. Using these beds, they can cater for unexpected visitors or spur-of-the-moment events. In addition, they are able to cope with the arrival of guests who may be elderly or physically challenged without having to compromise on their dignity. And, at the end of the day, they’ve always got a place to tuck up in front of the television and catch that late night film without disturbing the rest of the house! Sofa beds offer the perfect compromise to modern living requirements, no matter what your decor or style.
