Now that smaller living spaces have staged a major comeback in recent years, It is only natural that small-scale furniture, such as sofa sleepers, fill an important need for today consumers. However, not all sofa hide-a-beds are created equal, so do a little homework prior to your search.
If you are regularly switching or changing your furniture from a sitting to a sleeping position then you certainly want something that is effortless and easy to change. To that effect, a futon can be simpler/easier to convert from sitting to sleeping as you won't have to remove the cushions and manually pull the mattress/bed out from the inside of the sofa as you would need to do with a sleeper-style sofa. With a futon, you simply have to pull the lower portion of the futon "bench" to lower the "back" of the futon so that it can be slept on. You simply do the reverse if you want to place the futon back in the sitting/sofa position.
Many day beds can also be outfitted with a "trundle bed" that can be "hidden" or stored away under the day bed providing yet an additional mattress/sleeping area when needed. The trundle bed mattress is outfitted with casters and can simply be pulled out and used when needed and stored back under the day bed when done. There are two styles of day bed trundles – or trundle beds – to choose from. The first is a drawer trundle. Drawer trundles can be pulled out from under the day bed and sit lower than the main day bed mattress. The second trundle bed style is a called a pop-up trundle. Pop-Up trundles are becoming increasing popular because once the trundle bed/mattress is pulled out from underneath the day bed it can then be elevated to match the height of the main day bed thus doubling the size of your day bed mattress into a king-size bed.
