What size sofa bed do I need?
The size of your sofa bed will depend on several factors. How much space do you have? What kind of room will your sofa bed be going into? How much space behind it can you give? There is no single answer, but there are three things to consider when making the choice:
- Where in the house will it go: A bed settee can make a big statement, or blend into the room. Maybe you're thinking about converting an office space into a sleeping area for your guests or making your living room into a vibrant bedroom? Whatever your master plan is, you'll need to keep this in mind.
- How much space do you have: When looking at sofa beds, consider their size both as a sofa and a bed separately.
- What size of bed you want from your sofa: We have a wide variety of sizes, from smaller chair beds through to corner sofa beds that make an impressive sleeping space once converted.
The different types of sofa bed mechanisms available
We have three types of sofa bed mechanisms – let us tell you about them all...
So, first up we have clic-clac sofa bed mechanisms. These are impressive because they're super easy to use. All you do is gently drop the backrest down to create a flat sleeping surface. You'll hear it click into place. They're also usually quite compact, which makes them perfect for small spaces.
Next, we have A-frame sofa bed mechanisms. These are similar to clic-clac mechanisms and straightforward to set up, but instead of clicking down, the backrest folds down when you pull out the front to create the bed. The metal frame structure offers fantastic strength, ideal for long-term visitors.
Lastly, we have pull-out sofa bed mechanisms. These are a bit different than the others, as the sleeping surface is stored underneath the sofa, and you pull it out when you need it. These are still super straightforward to set up and a great option if you're having a sleepover.
All in all, each of the three mechanisms has its pros and cons, and choosing one depends on your preference, space availability and how frequently you're going to use it. But whichever mechanism you choose, you'll have a comfortable and stylish sofa bed that is sure to make your guests happy.
How to make a sofa bed comfy
For taking naps or hosting guests - if you've got a sofa bed in your home, you may be wondering how you can make it super comfy for the next snooze. Here are a few simple things you can do to create a cosy and welcoming sleeping space.
1. Consider a mattress topper
A mattress topper can make a big difference in terms of comfort and can help to make the surface feel more supportive. You can choose from memory foam, cotton, or other materials depending on your preference and budget.
2. Add some snuggly bedding and pillows
Having a good set of bedding on hand can make it easier to host guests at a moment's notice. Opt for soft and breathable fabrics like cotton or linen and invest in a few extra pillows and throws to create a layered and inviting look. It's amazing how much the right pillow can change a night's sleep from fitful to restful! If you're tight on space, sofa beds with storage are ideal for hiding bedding and pillows away during the day.
3. Flip the cushions regularly
The soft parts of any bed settee can wear down with use, just like the soft parts of our beds. Flipping them regularly can help extend the lifetime of their plushness, as well as keep them looking their best.
4. Beautifully style your sofa bed
Think about incorporating elements that reflect your personal style and the overall aesthetic of your home. You can add decorative cushions or a snug throw in complementary colours or patterns or add a pop of personality with a statement bedspread.
Don't forget to add some final touches to the room to make your guests feel extra welcome. A bedside table with a lamp and a few books, a vase of fresh flowers, or a scented candle can all add a warm and homely feel to the space – we're sure you and your guests will love it.
