Because of the cost of properties these days, most homes require a spare bed to accommodate a guest but don’t have the extra space to accommodate a guest room. Fact is, few people can afford keeping a space that only becomes useful on occasion. A 2-seater sofa bed is an excellent piece of furniture to have around the house. If you need further convincing, here’s why:
1. It saves a lot of space. A 2-seater sofa bed is not as bulky as a regular size one. Even if both fold up for easy storage, a 2-seater takes up only a fraction of the space a full-size does. You’d easily be able to cram it in a wall closet or at the bottom of your linen cabinet, maybe even under your bed.
2. It is enough as a spare sleeping space. More likely than not, you’d only need to accommodate one person to sleep over at a time. A 2-seater sofa bed is wide enough for one person to sleep comfortably on. If space is a scarce commodity, there’s no sense spending for a regular-size if you’re only looking for bare essentials.
3. It looks like it should. When a 2-seater sofa bed is propped up for extra seating purposes, it looks like a piece of furniture. When it’s rolled out to be slept on, it looks like a bed. This chameleon-like versatility a great advantage. You may be living in cramped spaces but it doesn’t always have to look perpetually like a bedroom.
Choosing Your 2-Seater Sofa Bed
Lest you think it’s a brand name, 2-seater sofa bed is a generic. You’d find plenty to choose from. It would be good for you to think about a few considerations before you decide on which one to buy.
There’s the style/type to consider, for one. Pull-outs are the most common and has been the market standard over several decades, at least in America. They’re called as such because you literally have to pull the mattress out from inside the sofa, after of course, removing the sitting cushions. Then there are those that simply fold up as sofas and unfold as beds without pulling strings or levers.
There’s also the comfort level. Not all two-seater sofa beds are as comfortable sitting on as they are sleeping on and vice versa. Some are more comfortable as sitters than sleepers; others are better used mainly as spare beds. But if you’d like maximum utility both excellent sitting and sleeping quality look into European sofa beds.
One Final Pitch
It may not sound as romantic as love seats or queen-sized beds but make no mistake about it. A 2-seater sofa bed is romantic on top of its many practical benefits. Imagine inviting your date to come up for a night cap on a cold winter night. The fire’s going, giving your living room a warm glow. Your 2-seater sofa bed currently propped upright is the only furniture in the room. Your date is on half of it. And as you hand them their drink, you drop on the empty space beside them. What happens next is your game.
