A sofa bed is arguably one of the most versatile pieces of furniture you can have in your home. Not only can it be a great seating option when your friends come visiting, it can also be a comfy sleeping space when they want to stay over for the night – or longer. If you’re thinking about getting a sofa bed, here are some of the features you should keep in mind when considering your next purchase.


Doubling as a couch and bed makes it the perfect furniture item for your living space or second bedroom. It’s convenient, easily interchangeable and allows your guests to stay over at your place anytime. Of course, if it’s on show every day in your living room, you’ll want it to blend in with all the other aspects of the space – the same goes for a bedroom. Luckily, sofa beds have become much more stylish these days in the aim to make them look like any regular lounge suite.


With a range of styles, colours and fabrics, you can choose the sofa bed that will be just right for you and your home’s design. Whether you’re after a popping bright yellow or a classic navy blue, your local Melbourne furniture store will stock a range that allows you to choose the perfect sofa bed for the space where it will live.


Depending on the type of sofa bed you buy, each will provide a different level of comfort. The fold down option is very convenient, where you merely fold down the backrest and your bed becomes the couch’s comfy seat cushions. There is also the fold out option which allows you to place a mattress on top of the support frame. Your comfort then depends on the mattress that you use.

Ultimately, your sofa bed should be considered not just for you and your living space, but for those who are likely to use it most – your guests. Whatever you choose, remember that you should try and test it out before buying it. See the full range of sofa beds online or in store at Furniture Galore today!
