Online Shopping - A guide to buying a sofa bed

Shopping for furniture online is easily the best use of e-commerce. You don't have to try on a chair and it won't look different in your house than it does 'on the model'.

Measuring for furniture is also much more straightforward than measuring for jeans!

Most importantly, online shopping always has upfront delivery options. It may be paid or free but at least you won't have to worry about getting to your door. 

Still, it's a big purchase so how do you know what to look for? It's really not that difficult when you know what to look for and when to ask questions.


1. Size

The easiest place to start is to determine the size that will fit the space best. Do you want to use up an entire wall and maximize seating? Do you want something that will take up as little room as possible? Check your measurements and start with a maximum size and go from there. When you have found a few styles that you like, knowing your measurements will help you narrow your options. Marking out the size on the floor is a great way to visualize it in your room and ensure you use your space efficiently.
All our sofa beds have the dimensions clearly shown in the product description. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out at any time!

2. Style

What are you looking for? Do you want a sofa bed that will be the statement piece in your living room or something that will blend in? Do you want something clean and simple that can adapt if you change your decor? If you are in a smaller space, consider a model with no arms to keep it feeling open. Are you going for a minimalist look? Consider options that have attached tables or arm trays to eliminate the need to for additional furniture. Whatever your style, consider the entire space and what will work best within in. 

3. Use

Determine your primary use to ensure your perfect sofa bed suits you. Clients who use their sofa bed as their primary seating should consider how they like to sit! Are you a lounger? Do you sit up straight? Are you looking for the ultimate entertainment seating for everyone in the family? Do you want something that has more back support for sitting up straight? Do you play guitar and prefer an armless or low arm option? Do you need storage space? 


Still not sure where to start? Send us an email or give us a call. We know our sofa beds and we want to ensure you choose the one that is right for your use and your space.
