Whether you call it a sofa bed or something else, a Sleeper Sofa is a very versatile piece of furniture. If you don’t have much space, these sofas are perfect-because any room can become a guest room. While functionality is important, there are other factors to consider when buying a sofa bed; some of which we will discuss below.

Dealing With Space Constraints
For those who live in small apartments, twin-size sofa beds are an ideal choice. They’re usually under five feet wide, and can comfortably sleep one person (mattresses are about 39″ in width). These are sometimes called a “chair and a half” or a chair bed, but don’t let their diminutive size fool you. In most cases, a twin-size sofa bed is almost as expensive as its full-size counterpart is.

Who’s Going to Use It?
If you are buying a sleeper sofa in Chicago for your own use, a full-size model is your best choice even if you’re working with limited space. Adults typically find twin-size beds too small; however, a full-size sofa bed can sleep two if necessary. A full-size sleeper sofa is between the size of a love seat and a conventional sofa, making it a suitable choice for apartments and smaller homes.

If Space Isn’t an Issue
If your home is large enough so that your choices aren’t limited by space, you should consider a queen-size Sleeper Sofa Chicago. These larger sleeper sofas are widely available, and can seat three or sleep two quite comfortably. The average queen-size sleeper sofa is about 84″ wide and 90″ in length when opened.

How it all Unfolds
When looking for a sleeper sofa, you should consider its unfolding method. When you use your sofa as a bed, you’ll have to remove the seat cushions to unfold it. Sofa beds have a cot-like mattress, which is reinforced by springs that give it the feel of a conventional bed. Futons are by far the easiest sleeper sofas to use, as the seat cushions form the mattress. You have a lot of sofa bed choices, and your decision will likely depend upon your lifestyle, the size of your home and your budget.
