Say Yes to Guests with a Convertible Sofa

You love having a spare room for exercise equipment and your computer, or maybe even a crafting workspace. Perhaps you already had a convertible sofa bed many years ago and felt it was too heavy or too hard to use.

But you’re also eager to say “yes” when your friends or in-laws want to come for a visit. So what will you have to give up so that you can add another bed? Well, you might only have to sacrifice an extra desk or bookshelf. Many contemporary convertible sofas< can be a smart solution for your spare room that is compact, lightweight and easy to use.

Clever Convertible Sofas for Stylish Spaces

Storing an inflatable mattress can be a huge hassle, starting with the time-consuming process of trying to deflate and refold the large plastic shell. Add a frame, and you might even dread having company. Cots can be equally awkward, claiming precious closet or under-bed storage when not in use. Choosing a new convertible sofa instead means that having overnight guests will be a pleasure, not a burden.

Convertible sofas make sense when space and time are limited. Available in many trendy models, upholstery options range from cotton and polyester to microfiber and leather. When you purchase a convertible sofa you love the look of, you can welcome your overnight visitors with enthusiasm, pride and confidence.

Children’s Sleepovers are a Breeze with a Convertible Sofa

Convertible chairs are also available in adult sizes with colors that coordinate to any space. If a convertible sofa is still too large for your teen’s room, this larger model of chair is great for their sleepovers too. Convertible chairs can also be a great choice for a young professional’s studio apartment. A great gift for the recent graduate in your life.
