Expand Your Space with Sleepers

Having guests over and you’ve run out of beds? No problem. Sleepers are a great way to make the most of your space without taking away from the natural flow of your home. A sleeper sofa adds flexibility to any room by providing a comfortable, stylish sitting room during the day, and opening up to a comfortable mattress in the evenings. Here’s what you need to know.

The Mechanics

Not all sleepers are created equal. In the past, sleeper sofas were extremely heavy and difficult to maneuver, sometimes requiring two people to pull the pieces apart and set up the bed. Today’s sleepers are generally more simple in nature, with easy slide-out panels that allow you to setup or breakdown the bed in just minutes.

The Size

An important part of choosing the right sleeper for your home is the size. You need to consider not only the size of the sofa itself, but also any extensions when it is in sleeping mode. You definitely don’t want to purchase a sleeper that can’t fully extend because it is too long or wide for your room.

Fold Down Options

One of the best sleeper options around today is a simple folding option that allows the back rest of the couch to fold down for a flat sleeping surface. This requires virtually no work on your part, and doesn’t take up much space at all. Make sure that you stock up on extra pillows and blankets to go with your sleeper so your guests will be comfortable falling asleep.

Sleepers are an affordable and functional way to expand the sleeping capacity of any home. They can even be added to an existing bedroom to facilitate kids’ sleepovers and room sharing. When folded up, the sleeper looks just like any modern sofa, but can easily be transitioned into more sleeping space for one or two people.
