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.
When choosing your exact fabric sofa there are three main considerations, back, seats and material.
A Scatter back sofa is perfect for lounging around and can help create more space on your sofa with its loose back support cushions while a standard back offers more support and also requires a lot less maintenance as the cushions do not need regular plumping and re-shaping.
All our fabric sofas come with fibre seats as standard with the option to upgrade to a foam interior. Fibre filled seats are soft and squashy whereas foam interiors offer a firmer sit and provide more body support. Also, because of the way a foam interior is structured, the seat cushions will not change its shape avoiding the need for regular fluffing and plumping of the seats.
We also have a whole host of different fabric types available meaning we have every need covered for your new sofa. We have numerous velvet and chenille fabric sofas which are great for making a statement in your living room as they catch the light differently really making your new sofa stand out. If a cosier fabric is more your style, we also have a selection of jumbo corduroy fabric sofas which are perfect for snuggling in and watching endless boxsets. With all of our fabric types available in a wide range of colours, you’ll be sure to find your dream sofa here at ScS.
All ScS sofas are expertly crafted using the finest materials and that’s why with all of our sofas we offer a 20 year frame guarantee, ensuring you are protected against manufacturing defects for 20 years.
Fabric sofas are not as resilient to liquids as leather sofas and need a bit more TLC especially when it comes to spills. Over the years our teams have encountered everything from tea and juice spills to champagne and bolognaise, that’s why we created and recommend purchasing our professional fabric sofa cleaning kits to ensure you have every best chance of getting up those pesky stains. The kit – along with rapid action – is usually enough to keep you sofa looking new.
To give you total peace of mind we also offer Sofa Guard. Sofa Guard for fabric sofas is designed to offer a thorough level of cover, including taking care of the costs of professional stain removal should the worst happen.
Absolutely. Giving your fabric sofa a good vacuum is the best way of removing dirt, dust and any other loose particles. For a real deep clean, after vacuuming we also recommend you give it a steam clean to really freshen up the fabric. Once the sofa has air dried, we suggest giving it another once over with the vacuum to ensure any particles loosened by the cleaner is removed.
In order to really maintain your sofa and home, you should give it a deep clean at least once a year. This will keep your sofa clean, fresh and also much more durable, lasting much longer. If stains and other soils are left untreated for a long period of time, this can lead to damage to the fibres of the sofa.
If you have pets, fabric is a great option as leather sofas tend to scratch and tear with their claws. We would however recommend regular claw maintenance to avoid potential fabric snagging.
When using any cleaning or fragrance products on your sofa which are not ScS recommended, make sure to test them first on a small part of the sofa which is not visible, to ensure these do not stain or damage the sofa.
