Sleepers and sleeping sofas or sofa beds, however they are described, will have enduring appeal as spare beds for those odd occasions when they are unexpectedly required. It may be that a party has gone on too long, or a road is blocked, or that your kids are having friends overnight – that extra bed will come in handy some time. They are always good to have.
Sure, the youngsters don’t mind a night on the floor – in fact many love it – but most of us would rather sleep on a sofa than the floor, no matter how deep the carpet! So if the sofa will occasionally be used as a bed, why not just buy a sofa bed or sleeper to begin with? There are many different types available, many at excellent prices.
