About Foam Sofa Bed
A foam sofa bed is a sofa or chair that is made primarily of foam, which can be used as seating, but can also be folded out to be converted into a temporary bed. The compact size and simplicity of this versatile furniture item are its main strengths, allowing a homeowner to maximise the available interior space, particularly within a small room.
A simple foam sofa bed consists of a foam core, which is used to make the base, sofa cushion and mattress of the bed. This foam is then enveloped in a decorative cover, which can usually be removed so that it can be washed when necessary. Sofa beds are available in various sizes, allowing the sofa to be converted into either a single or double sized bed. More expensive foam sofa beds may also feature additional cushions for comfort and arm rests at either side of the sofa.
Foam sofa beds are particularly useful in small bedrooms, where space is limited, because they can not only be used as a bed, but can also be folded up to a more compact size as a sofa. They are particularly effective for children?s bedrooms, as they provide additional temporary sleeping space in the case of children?s sleepovers. Many foam sofa beds are covered in colourful children?s fabric, which may feature favourite cartoon characters or motifs, such as footballs or space rockets. They are quick and easy to convert into a bed, and can be unfolded with minimal effort, due to the lightweight nature of the foam.
