Sleeper sofas are sofas that can serve as your bed just as they do for a sofa in the day. They are utility sofas because of the role they play in our living room and apartments. You have this sofa in different designs that would make for your relaxation where ever you want them, either in a living room or in your apartment.
Pull out type sleeper sofa: This is the most common type of sofa sleeper bed you’ll find in the market. They are designed to have the bed stored underneath the sofa seat surface. You can convert to the bed form by pulling out with a handle like a drawer and set it up depending on the mechanism of design. Some are raised to a stand while others maintain the same pull out height. The mattress size is most times dependent on the size of the sofa from which the conversion is made. A sectional styled sofa would most often give a bigger size bed compared to what a loveseat would do.
Fold out type of sofa bed: This sofa sleeper bed is designed to carry a mattress stocked inside the sofa seat surface. You simply raise-up the seat surface, pull out and roll it to bring out the fold. There are different variations of this type. Some start the fold out mechanism from the backrest. This converts the backrest to a sleeping surface unlike where you’ll usually have the backrest as the headboard in most cases.
Two things to get from a quality sleeper sofa: The sofa sleeper bed though may not give you the maximum comfort of a bed; a quality sofa bed would give you at least a near comfort to having a bed for the night. You can get a better comfort if you go for a sofa bed that has at least a double sized mattress.
The flexibility of the sofa bed is another thing to get from a good sofa sleeper bed. You should not have trouble converting on both sides.
