In today’s era, our apartments are getting smaller and smaller, and our furniture is more durable and portable. So, while you have ventured out to buy a sofa bed for your family, your approach will be very different. While appearance is still of real importance, many other factors muscle their way into the equation. And if you are buying furniture for kids, you need to change your entire perspective. So, are you supposed to let go of the durability factor? Or the style? Not at all. You just need to consider it in equal measure. In this blog, Safari Mattresses has compiled certain factors to consider that can help you in choosing the right sofa bed for children. So, read till the end.
It Should be Comfortable!
First things first, how comfortable is your sofa? Kids tend to wriggle and fidget when they’re not comfy, so make sure you bring them with you to try sitting on the sofa, giving it a good restful sleep experience before you make any decisions! Safari’s Sofa-cum-bed has been designed keeping this very aspect in mind. Check it out now!
Consider the Size.
Well, it is one of the best solutions for small rooms. When there are more than two of you trying to sit together, a spacious corner sofa can be a valuable addition to a family home. Stylish, comfortable, and giving you the option of a contemporary modular sofa, classic corner sofa, or leather corner sofa, not only can you all snuggle up together, but you can also kick back the portable sofa bed, relax, and put your feet up once the kids have gone to bed!
Watch out for the Upholstery Material.
One of the biggest factors when choosing from child sofa beds is the type of upholstery you go for. Whether we like it or not, at some stage, something will be spilled, crumbs will make their way down the sides and dirty hands might make their mark! You may need to look at different upholstery cleaners and how to care for different types of sofas before making your final decision.
Try Opting for a Leather Sofa or a fabric sofa.
A leather sofa can be an excellent choice for those worried about potential stains – not only is it resilient and can be wiped clean, but it is also stylish, complements pretty much every color palette, and offers timeless appeal. But no compromise on child-safe designs.
If you’d prefer to go with a fabric sofa, why not make use of sofa throws, which can take the brunt of any spills and then be washed? Throws and sofa cushions can also be used to add a splash of color to your room, providing you with style and functionality.
Opt for Kiddish Colours. Wait, what?
Some colors just don’t go well with kids. Whites, creams, and pale pinks and blues are sadly not the most sensible choices for a family household. But that doesn’t mean you have to have a muted palette. Darker colors can still provide the wow factor – with electric blues, purples, reds, and even a black sofa all great choices for hiding any mishaps while looking good and acting as the perfect space management solution at the same time.
A sofa will very much act as the focal point of your living room. It fosters an engaging environment for you all to spend some quality time together and by factoring in the right decisions, you can ensure it serves you and your family for years to come.
