Fortunately, the answer is now yes! Sofa beds have come a long way since they first came onto the scene in 1941 and their initial 90s popularity. ScS sofa bed mattresses are around 4 inches thick, which means that you won’t be conscious of laying down on the fold out mechanism. After all, we want our guests to feel right at home.
The sofa bed mattress is specifically designed to be flipped and stored away easily. Whilst the mattress is naturally thinner than a regular mattress which would struggle to be moved in the same way, you can easily top up your comfort levels with a mattress topper.
Choose a topper that’s between 2 to 3 inches thick - not so thin that you’ll still feel the firm mattress base, but not too thick that you’ll sink and struggle to get in and out of bed!
If you’re looking to add a little extra comfort at short notice, sleeping on a duvet will do just the trick too.
Provide proper pillows for your guests, and they won’t be able to tell the difference. Even better, plump up the area around the pillows to offer some extra support and stability for the sleeping pillows.
Your sofa bed won’t be in your bedroom, so have a look around the room. If any light peeps through the curtains, invest in some blackout curtains to turn any room into an ideal sleeping (or napping) spot.
Our ScS sofa beds are easy to unfold with a two-fold mechanism. Just remove the back cushions, grab the top of the mattress, and pull it out away from the sofa to unlock the metal frame Some of our sofa beds, including the Sisi Italia Amalfi range even keep the cushions attached as you fold out the bed - easy!
Spend some time on sofa bed maintenance to make sure your purchase stays in great condition and fully functional.
Always give your sofa bed a good clean before and after use. Treat it just as you would your own bed, and you’ll have overnight guests wanting to stay over that little bit longer.
