Hi, homeowners! In an ideal world, homes would always have full guest rooms, complete with a spare bed for friends and family who are visiting. But in the real world, that isn't still the case. And that's when a sleeper sofa or air mattress gets in handy.
There are many reasons to pick a sleeper sofa. They tend to be more supportive than air mattresses (although they are also more expensive‐anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars‐which is why air mattresses have their place, too). How a sleeper sofa works: During everyday life, it's a comfortable couch that's. How a sleeper sofa works: During everyday life, it's a comfortable couch that's perfect for reading or watching TV. When guests arrive, the cushions come off, and it transforms into a place for people to sleep.
If your remembrances of "sleeper sofa mattresses" are small cushions over iron bars, then you haven't seen the latest offerings. They've come a long way since then, and knowing what options are available can help you get the best one for your home. Follow these tips below.
Check Out Different Mattress Styles.
While they used to mostly contain spring mattresses (which can result in getting poked or creaky springs waking you up when you turn over), sleeper sofas now come with memory foam options and air/innerspring hybrids, where there is some air inflated above the traditional spring‐style mattress to make it much thicker. These styles can add between $100 and $250 to the cost of the sofa, so make sure that you test each one out in the store beforehand (just like you would when shopping for a standard mattress).
Look For Foam Toppers.
Manufacturers now make sleeper sofa mattresses that have comfortable padding added to the top, which makes them much more convenient to sleep on.
Get The "Right Size".
Measure how much space you have available for the fully extended sleeper sofa. After all, you don't want to have to move a lot of furniture around to get it open. Sleeper sofas don't just come in one size‐they usually come with queen or full mattress options (but there are even ones available with twin or king mattresses).
Check the Mechanisms.
See if any sharp points might snag your sheets as you're putting them on. You want the mechanism to be smooth when you're pulling the mattress out and putting it back in.
Consider "the Weight".
A sleeper sofa is essentially a mattress inside a couch, which can make the complete product really heavy. Then you may need to consider an inflatable bed alternatively of a "sleeper sofa" if you have to haul your getting up several fleeings of stairs.
Ask What the Frame is Made of.
One way to bypass metal bars understanding into your visitors is to get a sleeper sofa with a kiln‐dried hardwood frame. Why kiln‐dried? It takes the moisture out of the wood, which keeps it from cracking or warping over time.
Sit on it While it's Folded.
Most of the time, you're going to be using this piece of furniture like a sofa, so don't forget to check that the cushions are comfortable and high‐quality.
