What to Consider When Buying a Sofa Bed

Functionality and Comfort

The primary consideration when selecting a sofa bed should be its dual functionality. Evaluate how easy it is to convert the sofa into a bed. A good sofa bed should transition smoothly between configurations without requiring Herculean effort. Additionally, consider the comfort level it offers both as a seating area and as a bed. After all, your guests deserve a good night's sleep!

Size and Space

Before falling in love with a design, make sure it fits your space. Measure the area where you plan to place your sofa bed, keeping in mind you'll need extra room for when it extends into a bed. Consider the layout of your room and ensure that the sofa bed can open easily without moving other furniture around.

Mattress Quality

The mattress is what separates a decent sofa bed from a great one. Look for options with a thick, high-quality mattress that provides ample support. Memory foam mattresses are a popular choice as they offer comfort and are durable, maintaining their shape over time.

Durability and Frame Material

A sturdy frame contributes to the longevity and comfort of your sofa bed. Hardwood frames are generally more durable and stable compared to their metal counterparts. Check the mechanisms and moving parts to ensure they feel robust and are made from quality materials.

This sofa bed combines luxury and practicality, perfect for small spaces.

Top Picks for Sofa Beds in Australia

The Minimalist Marvel

For those who love a clean and simple aesthetic, consider a sleek design with straight lines and a neutral colour palette. This style fits well in modern apartments and can complement any decor.

The Modern Luxury

If you're looking for something that spells luxury, opt for a sofa bed upholstered in high-quality fabrics like leather or velvet. These materials not only add a touch of elegance but are also relatively easy to maintain, making them perfect for busy households.

The Family-Friendly Find

For homes with children or pets, look for sofa beds that offer durability and easy cleaning. Models with removable and washable covers or durable synthetics are ideal.

The Compact Choice

Studio apartments and smaller rooms might benefit from a compact design. Some sofa beds are designed specifically for tight spaces, providing essential functionality without overwhelming the room.

Styling Your Sofa Bed

Complementing Your Decor

Choose a sofa bed that complements the existing decor of your room. Whether your home features contemporary, minimalist, or eclectic styles, the sofa bed should act as an integral part of your interior design, not just a functional afterthought.


Enhance the comfort and appearance of your sofa bed with stylish accessories. Throw pillows, soft blankets, and quality bed linens can transform it into a welcoming space for guests.

Strategic Placement

Place your sofa bed in a location that maximises both its utility and aesthetic appeal. Consider its use as both a sofa and a bed when deciding on its position in your room.
