3 Reasons why Sofa beds are good for everyday use

Are sofa beds good for everyday use?


Sofa beds can be both fashionable and practical for every room in the house. Some homeowners buy sofa beds to utilise their space, especially if they have a home with smaller rooms - this bed idea, doubles up as a sitting area and a sleeping arrangement. However, some people may ask, are sofa beds good for everyday use? Or should they be used as an occasional sleeping arrangement for guests? Read on as we explore why a sofa bed is more than just an item for last-minute arrangements. 


What is a sofa bed? 

Sofa beds are sofas that unfold into a bed at any time that you choose. By day it is a form of seating for your you and your visitors to relax with each other however by night it is a bed that you can sleep on and rest until the next morning when you can pack it away again. While this presents something which is a solution for 2 separate problems, people still have negative connotations of sofa beds being embarrassing and flimsy and something that you only set up hidden in the guest room. However over time as we have seen more designs becoming available this is becoming a more viable option for homeowners.

Amazing for limited space

Space saving

Sofa beds are versatile and perfect for everyday use, especially for those who have limited space. For example in one-bedroom apartments, it may not be possible to have both a bed and a sofa so purchasing a sofa bed will help you to entertain your guests, relax and get a good nights sleep without sacrificing either thing.


A good option for those who have multi-use rooms

A sofa bed is also perfect for those who have a spare bedroom. Some spare bedrooms are also home offices or studies. A sofa bed can be utilised here as guests can sleep in the spare room without you losing out on your home office where you might work daily. 

Easy to use and easy to put away

Also, sofa beds have easy mechanisms that allow you to make up the bed and also close up the bed to revert it back to a sofa, transforming the room in a matter of minutes. This does not take a lot of effort or difficulty. There are 2 types of sofa beds. One is the ‘click-clack’ mechanism, where the back of the sofa simply folds down becomes a flat surface for you to lie on. There is also a more traditional sofa bed frame where the cushions are removed and hidden inside the sofa is a comfortable mattress ready for you to lie down on. Here at Furnitureful you can purchase comfortable mattresses that will provide the best surface for you to sleep on the night to night. You can read more about them here!


In conclusion, it's clear that sofa beds are a fantastic permanent sleeping arrangement that leads a double life of providing long term comfort during the day and long term comfort during the night. Sofa beds are useful to every homeowner, whether you have a family or you live alone; any person can find a use for a sofa bed in their home.
