Your sofa bed mattress may not be worth sleeping on. Go take a nap on it and decide for yourself. There are various qualities of sofa bed mattresses, as there are conventional mattresses. Because of the abuse a sofa bed mattress gets by just being folded between guests visits, you should consider a higher quality mattress. Another route to go, for making the sofa a more comfortable bed, is the use of a mattress pad made specially for sofa beds.
Do you have a sofa bed that serves as an extra bed for your guests? If you do, then I am sure that you have tried it out yourself, haven’t you? Sofa beds are notorious for being uncomfortable places to sleep. If you have not napped or slept on your sofa bed, then you probably need to check it out. You may find that your guests are spending more time tossing and turning than getting the sleep that they need and want. A sofa bed mattress does not have to equate with being uncomfortable. It can be a great place to sleep comfortably.
On most sofa beds, you may feel a little like the princess in the story of The Princess and the Pea. The rod that runs under most sofa bed mattresses to give it support is often felt through the mattress, which could make for a long and restless night. This rod, while a necessity, can quickly ruin a vacation or visit for your guests, because they cannot get the rest that their body needs. This is why you need to try out your sofa bed if you are going to be using it for guests to make sure that it is as comfortable as possible. The good news is that there are ways to help make your sofa bed mattress more comfortable and restful for you, your family, and for other guests.
If you are purchasing a sofa bed, you may want to consider upgrading the sofa bed mattress. This is usually an option that is offered, so ask if it is available for your particular brand of sofa bed. The standard sofa bed mattress is not the highest quality sofa bed mattress that is available, so this upgrade may be the difference between a comfortable bed and a night of restless tossing and turning. This investment will be well worth the extra money for your guest’s comfort.
Sofa bed mattress pads are one option that you may want to consider for an uncomfortable sofa. These mattress pads are specially made for the unique design of a sofa bed with extra padding in the areas that the bar supports the mattress. They attach securely to the existing sofa bed mattress with elastic bands and they offer you a quilted, tufted top.
There are many different brands of sofa bed mattress pads, so it is important that you do your research, including measuring your existing sofa bed mattress to ensure that you are getting the right pad for your particular sofa bed.
Where do you find sofa bed mattresses? At furniture stores, bed and mattress stores, and online. The same goes for mattress pads made for sofa beds. Shop for the best deal you can afford, and hopefully you’ll buy something that will last a long time, and be comfortable during its lifespan.
Your sofa bed mattress does not have to be uncomfortable. By upgrading your sofa bed mattress where possible and using a sofa bed mattress pad, you can help make your sofa bed more comfortable for your guests and family when they come to visit you. They will thank you for the extra attention that you have given to their comfort and rest.
