A chair to bed is a fab way to make more room in your home without having to add a new space or invest in a new sofa. They’re compact and can easily fold away into a neat little package, making them ideal for tiny apartments, small houses, dorm rooms and more. Plus, they’re usually more comfortable than a standard couch beds and can be used as a cosy chair by day or a comfy bed at night.
Unlike a regular sofa bed, chair beds aren’t restricted to the living room, meaning you can use one as seating in your bedroom or office for reading and relaxing before heading off to sleep. They’re also great for impromptu guests who might not have their own spare bedding with them, or those who prefer to sit up whilst sleeping rather than lying down on a flat surface.
As there’s such a huge range of styles and colours to choose from, there’s sure to be a chair to bed to suit your interior design style. Some feature a modern sleek look, others have more of an industrial style and still others are more traditional and classic in appearance. Plus, there’s the option of choosing a chair to bed in a neutral colour or embracing a bright shade that really makes your room pop.
You’ll find that most chair beds can be easily cleaned too, although how much you need to do this will vary between products. For example, some come with a removable cover that can be machine washed, while others may need spot cleaning with an upholstery cleaner. Just be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure you don’t damage the upholstery.
