Life is tough for many people and weekdays are full of tedious work. For this reason, I always spend my weekend watching my favorite movies or TV shows at home. The best place to do it is in the living room while sitting on a sofa bed and eating some potato chips. I love sofa beds. I always recommend everyone I know to get it.
Here is some checklist for anyone who wants to get the best sofa beds.
Manufacturers allow us the options of bi-fold or tri-fold sofa beds. I personally think bi-fold is the most comfortable option. The mattresses are usually thicker which make them more comfortable. Besides, we can set them up easily.
The best frame is made of hardwood and is kiln dried. It means the hardwood is not moist anymore so future warping risk will be prevented. However, a kiln dried hardwood is very expensive. A cheaper option is a sofa bed made from pine. Personally, I think hardwood is better even without the kiln dried element. It will last longer.
I always test the mechanism of the sofa bed before buying it, changing between the two forms back and forth. Sometimes, it can be too hard because we’re not used to it and the joints haven’t been loosening up. However, I always make sure I won’t have too many difficulties with setting them up.
Besides the frame materials, fabric is also important because it determines the comfort of the sofa bed. Avoid skimpy padding because it is less durable. Besides, it will be not comfortable to use it in the sofa decision.
The best sofa bed with good fabric isn’t always expensive. Some big retailers can keep the prices cheap even if the fabric is popular because of the mass-production nature. Some popular fabrics can be cheap but still tough. We don’t have to worry we have to sit on bad fabric if we want to remain cheap.
Sometimes, people don’t test their sofa beds in the stores before buying it. As the result, when they get home they complain that the mattress is not comfortable enough. Usually, it’s because they can feel the support bars and it hurts their backs.
I will choose comfortable memory foam models whenever my budget is not a concern. They are comfortable and long-lasting.
