Can you sleep on a sofa bed every night?

With house prices rising and homes getting smaller, more people are looking for ways to maximise their space. The city dwellers amongst us will know the importance of being space-savvy and will all have their own tips and tricks. One of these may be buying a sofa bed so you can double up on room use.

We know that investing in a sofa bed is a great way to save space and get the most out of your home, but is it the best option and can you sleep on a sofa bed every night?

What is the difference between a sofa bed and an actual bed?


There are a number of things that make a standard bed different to a sofa bed. The obvious difference is that a regular bed has a larger footprint and has one singular function of providing a comfortable base for sleeping (unless it’s a storage bed, of course).

A sofa bed, on the other hand, has two main functions. A sofa bed can be used as a sofa in the day, which frees up more floor space allowing you to make better use of the room. When night falls, the sofa bed can be unfolded and provide a sleeping base.

Because of this dual use, sofa beds are a great addition to studio apartments, living rooms, guest rooms or any home where more sleeping space is needed.

Why is it important to invest in a high-quality sofa bed?


Investing in a high-quality sofa bed will mean it lasts longer which will save you money and hassle in the long run. This is because the sofa bed will carry a sturdy mechanism made from durable materials and will be designed for regular use.


When a company is confident in the performance of their product, they are likely to offer a guarantee. At furl, we offer a 5-year guarantee on our sofa bed mechanisms because we are sure of their durability. This means you’ll get great peace of mind and aftersales support if you need it.

Sleep quality

High-quality sofa beds offer you a better night’s sleep due to the improved base and mattress. All Furl sofa beds come with slats, which provide a sturdy and comfortable sleeping base.

We also know a good mattress is key to sleeping well and that mattress preference is personal. This is why we give you the option of 3: Memory Foam, Reflex or Pocket Sprung. Our AirB, Classic and Metro sofa bed models carry an 18cm mattress making them just as comfortable as your main bed.

You’re also more likely to find that a high-quality sofa bed has been designed with a lot more thought. This means that you’ll find more stylish and interesting designs that can better suit your home.
