How to Choose the Best Sofa Bed For Your Home

Nearly every home needs an extra bed to accommodate a guest. Most people don’t have enough space in their homes to have an extra mattress-bed. They just can’t afford to spare that big space to be used once in a while. Sofa beds (also called sleeper sofa or sofa sleeper) come into the scene as a replacement for mattresses-beds.

Buying a sofa bed can be a tricky job since there are many variants in the market. Most commonly found ones are:

a – Pull-out ones: These have been the standard sleepers in the market for several decades. To make it a bed, you need to remove the sitting cushions away and pull-out the mattress from inside of the sofa.

Pros:
* They come in many sizes: Queen, full, twin, single.. When the size gets smaller, the name turns into a Love seat bed or a chair bed.
* Bigger color selections: Since some of them manufactured locally, they come with big fabric choices of quality and color.

Cons:
*They are very uncomfortable: Most Americans, unfortunately, want to sink in their sofas rather than sitting on them. They want them super soft. To have a super soft sofa and a bed within it, the tesco sofa bed mattress chase must be very flexible and the mattress would be very thin (most of the time they come only with a one inch foam layer as a mattress). This combination makes sure that you wake up with a back ache.
*Sitting cushions tend to slide out under you very easily.
*Mechanism is difficult to operate: It is a big challenge for the elderly and people with back problems to pull the bed out. Especially for bigger sizes, it really is a demanding job.
* No storage space

b – Futons: May be this is the most widely known sleeper type. They are not called sofa beds since they don’t look like a sofa at all. They come in metal or wood frames and their prices vary from 149 USD to well over a 1,000 USD.
