Having family and friends stay over at your house is fun, and that’s why many people make it a point to get sofa beds (aka sleeper couches and pullout couches) and/or futons. These instant beds are really convenient, and you can put just about anywhere around the home.
Sofa beds and futons are especially great if you do not have a formal guest room. Maybe it is possible to repurpose another room. By way of example, they can be placed in an office, living room, or family room where it will mainly function as a couch, but if overnight guests arrive, you’ll have an immediate bed.
With this in mind, take a look at the space you have available, and decide on the size needed for your convertible sleeper. They are typically advertised as full-size or queen beds, but hardly any are twin size.
You will want to obtain the ideal size of bed linens for your sofa bed or futon.
When you’re shopping, notice that the mattress is significantly thinner than a regular mattress. You will need these to understand whether you should dress it with conventional full-size sheet sets, or if it requires special bedding. Because there’s a large and varied market of sofa beds and futons, some will need normal linens while some need specially-ordered sheets. In terms of comforters or quilts, you can use conventional full or queen-size comforters or quilts.
Another thing to bear in mind when shopping for a sofa bed or futon is how to equip it with the maximum comfort. Due to the thinness of sofa bed mattresses, your visitors may feel the frame underneath. This will provide the mattress more cushioning, mitigate the feeling of the framework beneath, and make it a much more comfortable experience for your guest.
You and your guests need not dread the sofa bed or futon experience.
Congratulations, and let the guests arrive!
