Are you thinking of purchasing sofa cum bed instead of a simple bed for your bedroom? This is not a bad idea if you consider several factors and choose a sleeper sofa.
Unlike a sofa, a bed always provides a comfortable place to relax. It is worth giving preference to purchasing such furniture in the case of arranging a spacious bedroom. Here the bed will be the central element of the interior. The decorative and functional elements of its design include the headboard, footboard and linen drawer.
Disadvantages of a bed in front of a sofa:
- Dimensions and problems with ergonomics. Sometimes the bed takes up all the free space in the room.
- Only wealthy buyers can afford models with orthopedic bases and mattresses.
- Some beds are sold only in combination with expensive mattresses.
- There are significant limitations in terms of design variability. Moving a bed is extremely difficult, so the bedroom interior remains unchanged for decades.
Is it possible to sleep on the sofa without back pain?
A sofa is usually bought for the living room. But in a one- or two-room apartment it can also serve as a bed. If you choose the right sofa, you can sleep on it in complete comfort.
An incorrectly selected sofa for daily sleep risks causing back pain. Why be disappointed in furniture if you just need to know what to choose.
How to choose a high-quality orthopedic sofa?
For sleeping, models are suitable that, when transformed, form a wide sleeping place without differences in height, cracks, and the same level of rigidity on both the seat and the back.
The optimal models according to the type of layout are accordion, dolphin and eurobook. These three methods of transforming a sofa shared first place in terms of convenience.
Before purchasing, be sure to look at the quality of all accessories. If you buy online, read reviews about a specific product, because they will give you an idea of whether it makes sense to buy the selected sofa and whether it is suitable for regular sleep.
Check out all the characteristics, pay attention to the type of filler.
The filler is a spring block + elastic layer. Ideally, the springs should be independent, or instead of them, as in a bed, a slatted base is used. This way the sleeping place is comfortable, maintaining a balance between elasticity and softness.
If your budget is limited, but you still want to get a decent option for daily sleep, choose a sofa model with a Bonnel spring block, but with a good layer of orthofoam. A good spring block will provide the appropriate level of stiffness. Elastic foam placed on top of the springs will make the sofa more comfortable, because the springs will not be felt, orthofoam adapts to the anatomical features of the body and thanks to this, healthy sleep is ensured.
