Sofa Beds:
How they
impact your

What is a
sofa bed or sofa set?

Sofa beds, also called sofa sets and sleeper sofas, are a kind of sofa that serve two purposes with a single unit.

During the day, you can use them as a comfortable sofa, and at night, you can convert them into a bed to get some much needed sleep.

This 2-in-1 functionality make sofa beds a great choice for homes with limited space, or other areas such as guest rooms and small apartments.

When buying a sofa bed, always consider the comfort and quality factor, among other things, as certain kinds of sofa beds or sofa sets may provide either the same level of support and comfort as a regular bed, or not even close to it.

To ensure you get the best quality, it’s always a good idea to browse through our online sofa bed showroom, where you can also check the individual thickness of mattresses, as well as the materials used in both the sofa and the bed.

Are there benefits
to choosing a sofa bed over
a regular mattress?

There are, as a matter of fact. Sofa beds or ‘sleeper beds’ offer a number of benefits compared to regular mattresses, including:


A sofa bed can act as a comfortable seating area and a cosy bed, making it great for homes that have limited space or when you want to accommodate a guest.


Sofa beds are typically more affordable than buying a sofa and a bed separately, making them an excellent and cost-effective choice if you’re on a budget.


You can fold your sofa bed into a nice, compact sofa when you want to sit and relax during the day, thus, freeing up space in compact spaces.

Range of style options

The sofa beds at Furniture in Fashion (FiF) are available in a broad range of colours, styles, and materials, all with their unique characteristics. Pick something that sits in perfect harmony with your décor while also meeting your functional needs.


Sofa beds are very easy to set up as well as fold and tuck away when no longer needed. They are such a convenient and time-saving option for guests that pop in at the last minute or instances where you need to make a bed quickly.

Here are more ways in which you can benefit from a sofa bed and how it can impact your lifestyle:

Use sofa beds for
seasonal events

  • During seasonal holidays like Easter, Christmas, or New Year, you’ll likely have a bunch of relatives visiting your home, which means they’ll probably be staying over for a night, perhaps two.
  • Sofa beds can really come into their own to accommodate everybody, providing extra seating for your beloved family members and guests, and providing them a cosy place to sleep.
  • Plus, family get togethers and sleepovers can be messy, especially with lots of excited little ones running around, pets scurrying about around the furniture, and all that fun stuff!
  • Sofa beds really come in handy, particularly if you choose ones that have an easy-to-clean and stain-resistant fabric.

Partner or spouse unwell?
No problem!

  • Whether it’s a mild cold or seasonal flu, or something more contagious like COVID, you definitely don’t want to risk others getting sick. A sofa bed can be your lifesaver in disguise.
  • Prevent the spread of germs and pathogens by having either yourself or the affected person sleep on a sofa bed separately.
  • Enjoy the freedom to toss and turn, and sleep as you please without disturbing your partner or spouse.
  • It’s a win-win, innit? We certainly think so!

No more problems
due to lack of space

  • As we briefly discussed earlier, sofa beds are an economical, practical, and highly effective solution when you’re running low on space.
  • Their compact nature allows them to be transformed into a cosy bed or a spacious sofa, as and when needed.
  • You can also tuck them away when they are no longer needed or move them around freely, when you plan on giving your space a design refresh.

Mitigate sleep issues

  • Sleepless nights is something that affects nearly all of us, one way or another.
  • Whether your partner has a bit of a snoring problem that’s keeping you awake at nights or you have too much on your mind due to home or office-related happenings, lack of sleep can seriously impact the rest of your day and even your health in general.
  • If you’re having trouble sleeping in your regular bed, silently creep into the living room, put on the telly for a while, and relax on a nice sofa bed that engulfs you in its cosiness!
  • It’ll certainly help you drift into sleep and not wake up all stiff like Emily from The Exorcism of Emily Rose due to sleeping in an awkward position!

Great for
kids’ bedrooms

  • Modern sofa bed can make for a wonderful addition to your kids’ bedrooms.
  • They can be easily and quickly turned into a chair to have more play space during the day, and then pulled out into a relaxing bed when you want to put the little ones to sleep.
  • Plus, your kids won’t outgrow sofa beds as they typically do with their single beds.
  • Even if your kids eventually outgrow the sofa bed, you can reuse them in the guest room. One way or another, they will last you for years and have many uses around the house.

the perfect sofa bed

  • In conclusion, sofa beds can impact your lifestyle in lots of wonderful ways, serving multiple purposes and making everyone’s lives at home easier.
