If you are decorating your dorm room or house, maybe you are looking at convertible sofas with an eye to buying a comfort sleeper for your home, you need to be able to find a quality sofa bed.
When considering sofa beds, there are several warning signs that need to keep looking:
1) You see only a small selection of sleeper sofas . Most traditional furniture stores have only a very limited number of sofa beds, mostly in the same sizes. Today, however, customers can choose from a leather sleeper sofa , a loveseat sleeper, a queen sofa bed, a chair sleeper, sectional sleeper sofas , and more. In addition, comfort sleepers today come in a huge array of styles. If you are looking at a small selection, you may not get the right sofa bed for you, so it pays to check out a sleeper sofa specialist.
2) The frame feels loose when you pull out the sofa bed. When you convert a sofa bed into a bed and look inside, you should be a sturdy wooden frame and the process should be noiseless and effortless. There should be no tugging, no squeaking or squealing, and no shifting of the frame or bed. As well, there should be no loose or cheap-looking components inside the sofa bed.
3) There are tears on the mattress or scrapes on the bed frame. When you unfold the sofa bed into a bed, nothing should catch and there should obviously be no sharp parts visible or external. A best option is to find comfort sleepers that allow you to keep your bed sheets on when you fold up the bed again. Not only does this save you time, but it shows you that the sofa bed is well-constructed and engineered not to snag anything.
4) The mattress is not comfortable. Quality sofa beds today offer virtually the same quality of sleep as a regular bed. Try out different sofa beds to find one with a comfortable mattress. Better yet, bring along a larger-sized friend to try out the mattresses. A good quality comfort sleeper mattress will not permit even a larger person to feel the support bars through the mattress. You should also not be able to feel any springs or any uneven spots when you lie down; instead, it should be like lying down on a regular bed. Experiment with sofa bed mattresses of different thicknesses and firmness levels to find one that feels best.
