Where the problem comes in with most small sleeper couches is comfort. Because the sofa is small, the mattress or bedding option is usually quite low in quality and uncomfortable. What people do not realize is that not all small sofa sleepers are created equal. There are small couch sleepers on the market today that are incredibly comfortable. Some may even argue that they are more comfortable than the full size option, as comfort is not determined solely by size.
Sleeper sofas are very popular, and with good reason. They provide you with a comfortable and fashionable place to sit, while at the same time giving your guests a place to sleep when needed. The advantages of a sleeper couch are well known and documented, and more and more people are turning to them when it comes time to buy a sofa. Where people run into problems with sleeper sofas is when they have either a small space for the sofa, or a difficult pathway such as a tight corner or hallway. An extra small door frame can literally eliminate a regular sized sleeper sofa. Fortunately, there are some super high quality options for small sofa sleepers that work beautifully, and provide all the same benefits as a full size sofa.
For configurations, will a simple 2 or 3 seater work in your space or can it take a larger corner or chaise lounge? Do you move house regularly? Chaise lounges are a great solution for many modern apartments, but if you move around a lot, the chaise is fixed on that side, so it may not work in your next home, a 3 seater & an ottoman would be a better choice. It`s best to decide before hitting the shops and being swayed by what`s on display. In most cases, every sofa design is available in a range of various sizes and configurations to suit your needs.
One main decision is whether you are going to go for a leather or a fabric sofa. A few questions to ask yourself are: how much use will this sofa get? What kind of area is it in and therefore what kind of spills is it going to be prone to? If it is a high-use area, leather is durable, easy to clean and non- absorbent for spills and smells. With professional help, minor tears or scratches can be repaired with great results. Fabric, on the other hand, takes a bit more maintenance.
A sofa with chunkier or heavier overall proportions will appear larger in the room, whilst a sofa that is raised from the floor and has slim arms and seat proportions will appear lighter and visually consume less space. Use this to your advantage, look for heavier styles if you are looking to fill a large room and vice versa, and be aware of the impact the showroom has on the look of the sofa, in general showrooms will be very open and have high ceilings, making all sofas look smaller than they are.
