Choosing the right Sofa Bed
A sofa bed is a very practical addition to living spaces, offering a comfortable place for guests to sleep. There are many styles, sizes and shapes of sofa bed available and (thankfully) gone are the days when you have to compromise on comfort.
There are three main styles of sofa bed, each different in the way that they transform from a sofa to a bed and the functionality within a room. We have simplified the styles to help you make the right choice for your home and lifestyle.
Pull Out Sofa Beds
Pull out sofa beds are one of the easiest mechanisms to transform a sofa into a bed. The seat of the sofa lifts up and creates a flat platform when pulled down. Pull outs can be useful for a spare room, where space is tight. Using a pull out sofa often means that you are sleeping directly on the sofa and there is no additional mattress. The OSWALD pull out sofa bed is available from Heal's at Redbrick in a range of different colours and fabrics. The OSWALD changes smoothly from sofa to bed, its legs automatically folding out, making for a quick, convenient and stylish sofa bed solution.

Roll Out Sofabed
Roll out sofa beds require a little more preparation as the cushions of the sofa often have to be removed. Instead of a spring system under the cushions, there is a frame that rolls out to a sleeping space. Over the years, advancing technology has meant that modern sofa beds with metal frames are easy to use. There are now many memory foam and sprung mattress options available to ensure maximum comfort for your guests. The LANGLAND from Sofas & Stuff is available as a corner sofa and sofa bed gliding seamlessly from sofa to bed with a concealed mattress.
