Furniture purchases are serious business. Well, at least they require some research to make sure you get the best value for your dollar. When shopping for your home, it’s important to consider price, quality, size, style, fabric, and ease of care, but why not throw in multi-functionality as well? Who says a couch just has to be a couch? Transform a room, stretch your budget, and make the most of your home decorating investment with the magic of sofa bed furniture. After all, you never know who’s showing up for the holidays!
The convertible sofa beds of old were chunky, clunky, elephant sized pieces that weighed more than the Toyota in your driveway. They offered little in style, unless you like your couch shaped like a refrigerator box, and the mattress was torture for the poor soul sentenced to sleep on it. At least that threat might keep unwanted guests away, but you still have to live with it. Fortunately design has graced the likes of the fold out couch and turned it into a modern staple in most American households. Traditional and modern styles abound, with family friendly, easy care fabrics, and even buttery Italian leather, for those seeking a high end look. Best of all, there is sofa bed furniture at every price point, and pieces can be found from Target to Ethan Allen, and everywhere in between.
And why does the sofa get all the press? Comfy oversized chairs and recliners have now joined the ranks of the sofa bed furniture revolution. If you’re needing a cozy reading spot in that upstairs den, think of a convertible chair and ottoman. The chair folds out into an overnight oasis for a friend (or a husband in the doghouse) and the ottoman stores the pillow and bedding – simply brilliant! These dynamic duos can be found starting at around $400 – close to what you’d pay for a single function chair and ottoman without the perks of an extra bed and storage. Transforming a room and stretching your budget to include multi-purpose sofa bed furniture is a savvy style and money decision that makes magic in any room.
