How to Choose a Sofa Bed

If you live in a city such as London, Paris, Chicago or New York; or if you have just bought your first apartment, the chances are that you don’t have enough space to accommodate other people when they visit you. One of the problems with overpopulated cities is that the living space is becoming smaller and smaller; affordability is a big issue and since more people are renting nowadays, the money you pay for it could easily match the mortgage repayments once you have a healthy deposit; although a one bedroom apartment is not ideal, especially if you are planning to have a family; at least it is an investment, your introduction to the housing market and the first step to buy a bigger house with a garden.

The good news is that limited space is becoming less of an issue at the moment; we are almost resigned to the fact that our first property will not be as big as we would like it to be; also the gap in the marketing for furniture has been filled with many businesses offering furniture suitable for a studio or one bedroom place; the perfect example is a sofa bed; this is a sofa that allows you to transform any room into a comfortable bedroom in matter of minutes; they are becoming more acceptable, there is more variety and are cheaper to buy.

Amazon Sofa Bed Review

One of the best sofa we could find on Amazon was the Bi-Fold Sofa Bed Futon Frame with 8" Futon Mattress; with 4.6 out of 5 stars and at $239 (without discount), this sofa is one of the most versatile and affordable; it is not only comfortable, functional and decorative but it will exceed your expectations. The harmony of the different elements (furniture and decoration) must be considered when choosing a sofa bed in order to be consistent with the rest of the décor; this five position sofa bed has a beautiful but simple design that allows you to adjust the angle from bed or fully upright to three different reclining positions.


The dimensions of the sofa should be your second consideration; you must take into account the total square meters (or feet) of your living space as well as the specific area where the sofa will be positioned; this must respect all spaces and allow free movement as well as leaving enough space for when you open and close the pull out sofa – in this case the dimensions are 75 x 37 x 29.5 inches and the total weigh is 90 pounds; light enough to place it on a small space but expandable enough to make any person feel at home and in their own bed.   The 5 years warranty as well as the solid hardwood frame of the Bi-Fold Sofa Bed Futon Frame definitely makes it the ideal sofa and one of the most comfortable full size beds for any unexpected guests.
