This sofa can be converted into an extra bed for guests. The newest convertibles have an inflatable mattress, making the bed more comfortable than in years past and ensuring your company will stay longer, which may or may not be a pleasant circumstance. Contemporary sleeper sofas may simply flatten out to create a bed, and is perfect for when you don't want extra cushions laying on the floor in the middle of the night. Although sleeper sofas aren´t known for comfort, you can purchase padded mattress covers to place on top of the provided mattress.
It may be time for a new couch, but the terrifying prospect of sofa-shopping online might leave you watching Netflix on the floor. Don't be intimidated by the wide world of internet furniture retailers — if you take the right precautions, purchasing a couch through the web can be a shockingly pleasant experience. The key is restraint. Not in size, shape or shade — feel free to go as big and as bold as you want. But purchasing furniture online can be disastrous if you let impulsiveness get the best of you. Before buying, take time to consider space, fabric and style. Make sure to think about your lifestyle, too. Don't just click "Buy."
Not all shapes lend themselves well to being slipcovered. If your chair or sofa has a wooden frame around it or wooden arms, a slip cover may not be a good idea as they will be felt through the fabric. A piece that is covered in fabric leads you to believe that it will have a soft feel, and the hardness of wood underneath will not feel pleasant. Details such as welting can be an attractive feature in a slipcover. You can buy slipcovers with welting, or order ones that have it when you get them custom made or make them yourself. Decide whether you want self-welting or contrast welting on your slipcovers. Contrast welting will draw attention to the lines of your chair or sofa. If you want to emphasize them choose contrast welting, to play down the shape choose self-welting. Braids, fringes or buttons can also be added depending on the look you want.
