Are sofa beds suitable for everyday use? We get asked this a lot and the simple answer is yes - so long as you choose the right one.
Sofa Beds come in all shapes and sizes, some are designed as a sofa and have a mechanism inserted into the wooden frame, typically these are the types where you have to remove the cushions. Others are designed around a metal frame where the bed is the primary structure and the sofa is build around it. It’s these that are designed with your sleep comfort in mind as only they can offer the sturdy platform for the bed and all the features that make a sofa that’s good enough for use as your main bed everyday (or the pleasure of giving your guests the best night ever, on a sofa bed).
We’ve listed below what we consider the essential attributes to a sofa that’s suitable for everyday use.
A High Quality Mechanism
Probably the most important aspect of your sofa bed purchase, the mechanism needs to live up to your daily routine as well as offer great support for the mattress and a solid base for the sofa. Our mechanisms are regarded as the best you can get, their unique features include a bed that’s always 2m long regardless of size, a normal bed height and the cushions always stay on, so you don’t need to find somewhere to store them.
Thick Quality Mattresses
Never underestimate the importance of having a high quality mattress. We offer four types ranging from traditional pocket sprung to memory foam and at 14cm thick they’re all of a depth and length rarely found on sofa beds. If you want to sleep on your sofa bed every night there is no substitute for a decent mattress.
Single to Super King Sizes
Our sofa beds come in 5 bed sizes from a Chair with a single size mattress to Extra Large, which has a Super King size mattress and double and kings in between. When it comes to bed sizes, our sofa beds make you feel like you’re in a real full size bed. We know our sofa beds are used regularly by many of our customers so we make them in sizes you’ll want to use every day and night!
Let’s not forget about the Sofa
We make our sofa beds to look and feel like high quality sofas, everyone is different and has different elements of comfort, some have higher backs, deeper seats and arm designs. All of them are designed not to look like a traditional sofa bed. Because all our sofa beds use the same mechanism your sleep comfort is guaranteed across the range, the choice for you is to find a design you love and a fabric you’ll enjoy.
