There have been numerous updates and improvements to sleeper sofa mattresses and mattress support structures over the years ultimately leading to a much more comfortable sleeping experience. Many of today's modern sleeper sofa designs feature an updated and re-engineered horizontal support system for the mattress that eliminates the horizontal bar that in the past could cause back pain/discomfort. Look for a "deck" or mattress "trampoline" that has a sturdy and durable wire-mesh construction if possible fashioned in an "X" or "criss-cross" design to provide proper mattress support. Beneath the deck or trampoline – in the center section – the support legs will provide the best strength and support if they are manufactured in a U-shaped, single unit. With regards to the mattress itself, select a sleeper sofa with a mattress no less than 4" in thickness. Some manufacturers even offer mattress "upgrades" for ultra sleep comfort.
Sleeper sofas, day beds, and futons are all tremendous multi-functional furnishings that provide the owner and user with exceptional sitting and sleeping options. Which one is right for you and your home? The information above can certainly help point you in the right direction but remember the choice is ultimately yours.
Just like with all furniture, there are certain key factors to consider when making your furniture purchase choice such as personal preference and style as well as space and size restrictions and of course cost considerations. If you are thinking of buying a day bed, futon, or sleeper sofa, however, there is one other key factor to consider due to the dual-purpose nature of these pieces (each can be used for sitting as well as for sleeping) which is,… do you plan to use it more often for sitting or for sleeping? Answer this one essential question and you will be moving in the right direction when it comes to deciding the sleeper sofa vs. futon vs. day bed dilemma.
