1 person sofa bed
Sofa bed 1 person
A sofa bed is a multifunctional piece of furniture that allows you to make the best use of the space in your home. Whether you live large or small, a sofa that can double as an (extra) sleeping place is always handy. By day, the furniture is just a fine or luxurious sofa on which you can relax with a book or a series on TV. At night when you want to go to sleep, you transform the sofa into a comfortable bed in no time. Sofa beds are available for two people and for one person. But we also have a sleeping ottoman, sofas with a sleeping function for two people, luxury sofa beds, and a 1 person sleeping chair. Read all about our 1 person sofa bed below!
Characteristics of a good sofa bed
The main feature of a sofa bed is that it is a bed and sofa in one. Using a folding system, you fold the sofa into a bed, and vice versa. As a result, the furniture has multiple functions. Especially in homes with limited space, a sofa bed makes for smart furnishings. Use the furniture for yourself, as your own bed, or as a guest bed when you have a lodger over. This way you don’t have to offer your family or friends an air mattress on the floor, but you easily have a comfortable bed ready for them.
Sofa bed with mattress
A good sofa bed is extremely comfortable. As a sofa, the furniture should sit well, and when you use it as a bed, then of course a good night’s sleep is important. In recent years, sofa beds have advanced greatly in terms of comfort. When buying a 1-person sofa bed, the question is what the sofa bed will be used for. How often will it be slept on? If the answer is regular, then it is important to select a sofa bed to match. For advice on the right sleeper sofa, contact The Sleeper Sofa Center.
Different types of sofa beds for 1 person
There is an awful lot of choice in sofa beds for one person. The fold-out systems come in all kinds and there are also many different designs for sofa beds. A folding bed 1 person falls into the category of small sofa beds. Within this category, the choice is still very large.
First of all, let’s consider the term sofa bed and its differences from the term bed sofa. Actually, these words are synonyms of each other, but in the furniture industry they mean slightly different things.
A sofa bed is a sofa where it cannot be seen that it contains a bed. This involves a separate system of sitting and sleeping. A sofa bed is more like a bed that you can turn into a sofa with a few extra pillows. Removing the back cushions already makes the furniture a bed. So the mattress is used for sitting and sleeping on.
Fold out to the front
The classic sofa bed: a forward tilting system that allows you to unfold the sofa into a bed. These sofas take up the space in front of the furniture and form an elongated bed. With a separate mattress for the sleeping position and pillows for the sitting position, this is a so-called separate system.
One of the best known types of sofa beds is the transverse sleeper. In this, the bed extends across the width of the sofa. With a 1-person sofa bed, there is then no need to unfold the sofa to turn it into a bed. So the bed is no bigger than the sofa and you don’t have to make room to unfold the sofa bed. So a real 2-in-1 solution where all you have to do is put a blanket on top. Ready to use!
In addition to the transverse sleeper, there are sleeper sofas that look more like a chair when folded. So actually it is better to call this a 1 person sleeping chair. This piece of furniture is very convenient because it takes up even less space than a sofa bed. With a sleeping chair, you unfold the entire back of the chair into a bed.
The last type of sofa bed is one that is somewhat less common, namely the sleeping ottoman. A pouf, of course, is already ideal for placing next to a sofa to create a place for feet to rest. Or to put down a nice wooden tray for some drinks and snacks. How convenient would it be if even this pouf could become a bed in an instant? It doesn’t get more compact.
Of course, sofa beds are also available for two people. These systems are larger than the single sofa bed and comfortable enough for two people to sleep on. An overview of all 2 person sofa beds can be found on our 2 person sofa beds collection page. This furniture is even available as a corner sofa bed!
