Those who live in apartments, condos, or any small living space might find it difficult to find a place for overnight guests to sleep. Others who might need a sofa bed are those who simply like the idea of having an extra bed in the living room to nap on. A futon sofa is great for a living room, master bedroom, or even a larger sized children’s bedroom. They can be stylish as well as functional, and many of them have a very modern look.
A cheap sofa bed might usually look cheap in a living room that has a classic or Victorian style. Many of them look like ugly folded mattresses that would only be appropriate in a children’s room. This is why many people do not like the idea of a futon. However, nowadays it is much easier to find a sofa bed that works perfectly with most decors. The key is in the frame. Many futons are available with a classy wooden frame, especially one of real wood that can be stained to match any tables or living room furniture. A fold out sofa bed can function as the living room couch, and guests might be none the wiser at knowing that the furniture doubles as a bed.
