Sofa beds not only are practical, they are also a comfort experience. When it comes to choosing a sofa bed, or any other furniture item, several factors need to be looked at, from functional needs to esthetic features.
Functional needs drive the reason behind the purchase of a sofa bed. Sofa beds can be chosen to meet occasional needs, such as hosting a guest for a couple of days. But they can also be a space saving solution for small spaces: sofa beds are in fact the perfect choice for no bedrooms flats. Sleeper sofas may also be chosen to furnish a living room, thus combining style, practicality and comfort.
Whatever the need, be it for an occasional or daily use, choosing the right mattress is of utmost importance: for quality rest, a 12 – 15 cm high mattress is definitely needed.
The choice of a sofa bed mattress also relates to the material type it is made of. The best offers on the market are polyurethane foam and memory foam mattresses.
Polyurethane foam is a highly versatile material with several advantages: firstly it is environmental friendly, being free from harmful substances; secondly, it is a highly resistant material that correctly supports the body weight; finally, thanks to its structure, polyurethane foam mattresses are easy to manage, lightweight and – most important – hygienic.
Memory foam features an innovative technology that, thanks to a polyurethane-based thick foam, allows the mattress to “memorize the shape” of the person using it, thus adapting to the user’s body contours for a total comfort experience. Memory foam mattresses are hypoallergenic and anti-mite and maintain their characteristics unaltered over time.
Keeping on with the technical characteristics of sofa beds, there is another aspect that makes the difference: the opening mechanism. A sofa that turns into a bed without removing the seat cushions through an easy mechanism is definitely an asset. Regardless of how often it is used, turning quickly a sofa into a bed and a bed into a sofa strongly affects a product’s comfort experience: an easy-to-manage sofa bed is a body and mind relief.
Last, but not least: design. A sofa bed, both when open to be used as a bed and when closed to be used as a sofa, is of great impact in a house and therefore needs to be in perfect harmony with the surrounding settings.
