Sofa Beds Are Fun, Functional, and Here to Stay
Sofa beds come in many different shapes and sizes. They even sport lots of interesting designs, features and fabrics. If you have been looking at them for awhile then you have probably been impressed with the various styles, upholstery, leathers, and configurations that these amazing pieces of furniture are offered in. It is easy to stay in style with any one of a number of these. They are comfortable, they welcome your guests in style, and will last your family for years and years of use.
What first struck me about sofa beds, when I became aware of them, was the variety of coverings. Probably one of the most popular, and certainly one of the most durable, are the leather ones. These have that classic look that seems to stay in style no matter how much time goes by. And, they look great in just about any room. They are easy to decorate around and are easy to keep clean and nice. On the more comfortable-to-the-touch side of things, it could be argued that the micro fiber coverings are the way to go. Micro fiber certainly is soft to the touch and is beautiful. Or, if you like patterns, there are many great upholstery options with flowers, stripes, geometric designs, or anything else you could wish for.
Sofa beds go way beyond the old hide-a-beds of days gone by. Gone are the uncomfortable toss-and-turn nights, awful scratchy lame fabrics, and the ridiculously heavy couches that made you cuss like a preacher's son. Now your guests can look forward to a comfortable nights rest when they come to visit. You and your family can enjoy using the sofa for everyday use, and when the time comes to move it you don't have to hire a crane.
Futon sofa beds are pretty cool and their popularity is as high now as they have ever been. They look great and are simple to set up because all you have to do is lay the back down, throw on a sheet and some blankets, and you're set. They are constructed from lots of different materials, but wood and metal are the most popular choices. Wood has a nice warm appearance and comes in many shades of color. Many manufacturers even use sustainable plantation grown hardwoods for the frames. If you are like me, you appreciate this sort of responsible practice. Metal is, of course, durable, can be painted any color, and will last just about forever.
There are also some sofa beds on the market that really surprise. Have you ever heard of a chair bed? These are great. During the day they appear to be just regular comfy chairs, but at night they transform into mini super heroes of the furniture world. They are compact and simple, as well as light and functional. Wholesale Interiors makes a small red convertible sofa that is just as cute as a button.
Click Clack sofa beds are the last ones I want to mention. You may be familiar with these as this design has been around for many years. There is a mechanism in them that allows you to lay down the back by simply pulling it forward, thereby releasing the catch and allowing it to lay back. You hear the clickity-clack sound of the mechanism and, viola, instant bed.
Sofa beds are functional, fun, comfortable, and here to stay. With a little shopping around, you will find one to suit your needs.
