Those who live in apartments, condominiums or any small living space may find it difficult to find a place to sleep guests overnight. Others who may need a sofa bed are those who simply like the idea of having an extra bed in the living room to rest. A futon sofa is perfect for a living room, a master bedroom or even a larger children’s room. They can be stylish and functional, and many of them have a very modern look.
A cheap sofa bed might usually look cheap in a classic or Victorian style living room. Many of them look like ugly folded mattresses that would only be appropriate in a children’s room. This is why many people don’t like the idea of a futon. However, nowadays it is much easier to find a sofa bed that works perfectly with most decors. The key is in the box. Many futons are available with an elegant wooden structure, especially in real wood which can be colored to match any table or furniture in the living room. A fold-out sofa bed can serve as a living room sofa, and guests may not be the wiser in knowing that the furniture doubles as a bed.
The sofa bed upholstery could be customized to fit the fabric of the rest of the living room furniture if such fabric is available and a skilled tailor can be hired. If in doubt, a futon sofa that is covered with a solid color that coordinates the decor should only work when swimming. Also look at the quality of the coating and find out if it can be easily cleaned in case of stains. A futon that is often used for sleeping may be cleaned more often than a regular sofa. In most cases, the sofa can simply be hit by a vacuum cleaner which has a living room furniture attachment. A leather sofa bed or bunk will often have a special cleaner to use on it.

A futon sofa for a child’s room can serve many purposes. It can be used during the day to take a nap and watch television and as a bed at night. It can be used as a primary sleeping area, or the child can have his own bed and a futon for sleepover. There are smaller sofa beds which can be easily transformed by the child every night. Very small, cheap and inflatable sofa beds for younger children cannot be used as permanent beds, as they are generally not easy to clean, but are great for reinforcing nap times. Make sure your bedding is comfortable and doesn’t have uncomfortable metal bars or springs.
The convertible sofa bed is a great investment and allows you to easily accommodate sudden guests on stormy nights. They are comfortable and often large enough for even more guests.
