There is nothing as convenient as a good sleeper sofa. They are good for relaxing on during the day, and if you do not have access to a bed, they are much better options over a futon or mattress on the floor. Do you go to relax on your sofa and find it uncomfortable? Are guests that spend the night at your place complaining the next day about back pains and restless sleeping on your sleeper sofa? Sounds like it is probably time to find a new commercial sofa bed.
Your local furniture wholesale outlet is going to be your best bet for upgrading your family furniture. The furniture industry is comprised of an estimated 87,000 establishments employing more than 500,000 individuals (according to the U.S. Census Bureau) so you will always have a chance to speak to an expert on the sofa you are looking at. The market for sleeper sofas is now filled with sofa beds in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, materials, prices, and so on.
Before you even begin looking at sleeper sofas at a furniture wholesale outlet, you need to recognize how the sofa itself will be used most of the time. Since sleeper sofas are often a means of finding a middle ground between a comfortable bed and a comfortable couch, they can often be lacking in either area.
It is also important to take into consideration your living situation. If you live in a small apartment or move locations quite a bit, it is more feasible to purchase a smaller, lightweight sleeper sofa. It will make for easier setup and transportation. If you have a more solid living place, setting up a sturdier, bigger sofa makes more sense.
When you ask your furniture wholesale outlet to show you their sleeper sofas, you will often be given a choice from three categories. Traditional pull-out sofas have a tendency to hold a thin mattress. Since the point of these is to be more sofa than bed, these usually do not offer enough cushion against the springs and the metal bars holding things in place so, generally, these are not best for sleeping on more than a couple nights in a row at most. if you are looking for a top of the line pull-out sofa, you are most likely going to be paying in excess of $1,000.
Futons tend to be on the cheaper side compared to pull-outs. These are built with metal frames and support one single cushion. They easily fold between serving as a sofa and a bed, but after some time the cotton and foam cushion is likely to harden and compress, making it less comfortable.
The final option that the furniture wholesale outlet might provide for is a daybed. As you would expect from the name, this piece of furniture is meant to be a bed more than a couch. They are set up ideally for sleeping and lounging. They typically will come in twin-size, but bigger sizes are available. While standard bed frames come with a headboard and footboard, daybeds actually have a third panel along the back side. This is what makes it comparable to a sofa.
