How many times have you wished you had a sofa sleeper? Most people have found themselves wishing they had more space for overnight guests at some point. The first few times it happens you might think it was a fluke, and it wouldn’t be wise to invest in accommodating friends and relatives. But after a while, you will probably start really considering your options.
If you don’t have a guest bedroom, your best bet is to buy multifunction furniture for your living room, family room, rec room, or den. While you want to make sure that you have enough room to pull out the sleeper when needed, keep in mind that this is not as necessary as it once was. Today’s sofa sleepers have a far better design than the hide-a-beds of decades gone by.
There are actually quite a few designs available. If you have already decided to add sleeping quarters or truly have no need of them yourself, consider getting a sofa sleeper for that family just starting out in their first home. Here are the reasons why.
If you like to throw house parties, host birthday or anniversary parties, or have barbeques, there is always that chance that someone will have too much to drink to drive home. You could get an Uber or Lyft, but if the funds aren’t available they will need a place to crash for the night. A pull-out bed is far more comfortable than the sofa seats themselves.
Save friends and family hotel costs
If you ever have friends or family that visit from a distance, a small investment in a sofa sleeper could save them hundreds in hotel costs. When a friend or relative is only going to be in town for a day or two, it is not an inconvenience to have them stay with you when you have this additional sleeper option. Your guests will also save on food costs, car rentals, and other travel expenses.
Family movie night
A family movie night can be a lot of fun, but not necessarily comfortable. Kids are always perfectly happy on the floor. Let them grab their favorite blanket and pillow and stretch out in front of the television. But what about mom and dad? A pull-out couch bed is a great solution so that you can stretch out as well but without the need to climb on and off the floor.
All kids like to have slumber parties or sleepovers. Sure, kids can sleep on the floor, but if you want to let the kids have the family room or rec room for the night, sofas with pull-out beds can be a huge benefit. Plus, who says that slumber parties have to be for kids? Get a couple of sleeper sofas for your living room or family room so that adults can relax and sleep in comfort.
