Nearly every home needs an extra bed to accommodate a guest. Most people don't have enough space in their homes to have an extra mattress-bed. They just can't afford to spare that big space to be used once in a while. Sofa beds (also called sleeper sofa or sofa sleeper) come into the scene as a replacement for mattresses-beds.
Buying a sofa bed can be a tricky job since there are many variants in the market. Most commonly found ones are: a-Pull-out ones: These have been the standard sleepers in the market for several decades. To make it a bed, you need to remove the sitting cushions away and pull-out the mattress from inside of the sofa. Pros: * They come in many sizes: Queen, full, twin, single.. When the size gets smaller, the name turns into a Love seat bed or a chair bed. * Bigger color selections: Since some of them manufactured locally, they come with big fabric choices of quality and color. Cons: *They are very uncomfortable: Most Americans, unfortunately, want to sink in their sofas rather than sitting on them. They want them super soft. To have a super soft sofa and a bed within it, the mattress chase must be very flexible and the mattress would be very thin (most of the time they come only with a one inch foam layer as a mattress). This combination makes sure that you wake up with a back ache. *Sitting cushions tend to slide out under you very easily. *Mechanism is difficult to operate: It is a big challenge for the elderly and people with back problems to pull the bed out. Especially for bigger sizes, it really is a demanding job. * No storage space
How Many Cushions? Traditional styles use two or three cushions for both seat and back. If you're just replacing the seat cushions, you have a few choices. If the back of the sofa is one piece - without attached or loose pillow-backs - you can use as many seat cushions as you want. One full length seat cushion lends a sleek, modern look to an older style. Just use the same fabric as you use for the sofa slipcover to make a cover for the cushion. If you like a more traditional feel, use two or three evenly sized cushions on the seating platform.
Some sectional sofas have two couches, perhaps one regular and one with recliners. Or a recliner sofa and a sleeper sofa. Regardless of the types of sofas, there is almost always a corner piece that joins the two sofas together to form one unit. The corner comes in two forms, either curved or at a 90 degree angle. The curved sectional sofas usually look more comfy, the curved corner helping to form a continuous line. The 90 degree corner looks more polished and modern.
