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.
Our leather sofas are a combination of 100% genuine leather on seats, armrests and back cushions, complete with leather-look fabric on the sides and back to offer amazing value at an affordable price.
Leather furniture is better for dogs and cats, so pet-proof your house by choosing a pet-friendly leather sofa. They are easy to wipe clean and with no sofa material for pet hair to cling on to, hair removal is a
Cat claws may snag on the fabric weave of a sofa, but your leather couch should be safe if you keep a scratching post close by. As for any dog scratches, just count it as adding to the distressed look as a
leather sofa naturally ages. Free personalisation, courtesy of our four-legged friends.
Little and often - keep a damp microfiber cloth close to wipe down any crumbs and dirt. Add on the vacuum brush nozzle to snozzle up those trickier bits stuck down the sofa corners and sides.
Speed! Catch a liquid spill as quick as you can and wipe up any tea or coffee before it dries, then cleanse the spot with a leather cleaning solution and wipe dry thoroughly. You can make your own leather sofa
cleaner by mixing together equal parts water and vinegar in a bowl.
For any grease stains (takeaways on the couch happen), sprinkle some baking soda on first to absorb the oil and then clean in the same way.
To treat scratches, use the cleaning solution first and follow with some rubbing mild oil like baby oil over the scratch using circular movements. Then simply wipe off the oil and leave the sofa to air dry.
Buff, buff and buff - then keep it conditioned. The best way to look after a leather sofa is to wipe it regularly, and treat the material to some regular conditioning to maintain its shine. Leather naturally contains
oils, so top up the levels using a specialised leather conditioner cream, then buff dry.
Position your leather sofa away from direct sunlight or radiators to keep the leather soft and supple. Check the manufacturer’s tag for specific cleaning instructions, avoid using all purpose cleaners, and you’ll
have a leather sofa to enjoy for many years to come.
