Sofa Bed – An Asset for the Living Room

In this ever growing world, with growth in the population the land seems to be getting squeezed. Living in big palatial homes has become a dream for most of the people. Of course exceptions are always there. Few lucky ones do enjoy the big bungalows. But anyways, God has bestowed us with a clever brain and we have learnt to tackle this problem of less space by making things that requires not much space and also fulfill its purpose.

Sofa Beds – A sofa maybe your best option if you want to put up guests and relatives in comfort, but don’t have rooms to spare. According to the space one can opt for any kind of sofa bed. The basic four options come in fashionable living room furniture:

1. Bench Style:  The simplest of sofa beds, bench style models have a mattress like base and back, the latter of which folds down to create an instant bed. Of all the models, this type is the one model that can be as comfortable as any normal bed, and if you are likely to only occasionally fold the bed back into a sofa, it’s the best choice.

2. Pull Out: This model looks like a standard sofa and is available in a range of styles. The bed frame and mattress, which are folded and concealed inside the sofa base, are pulled up and outwards to form the bed. It may include storage space to store a quilt and pillows, and is usually heavy.

3. Corner: Corner sofa beds typically comprise two seated sofa and a chaise which forms the corner unit. The bed section comes out from the base of the sofa section, either with a pull out action or as a pop up truckle. These sofa beds also sometimes feature storage space, which is useful for storing bed linen.

4. Futon: A futon style sofa bed usually has a frame that is made of wood or metal and a choice of mattress thickness and materials. The two basic types are bi-fold sofa beds, which fold back like bench-style sofa beds and tri-fold, whereby the mattress is folded into three sections to make a more compact sofa.

We have enough options and there is one for everyone. So why not enjoy the company of dear ones without the headache of where to put them for sleep!

Livening up with colours

I happened to visit my old uncle few days back. Age has definitely taken toll on him and he is not as healthy as he used to be in the pink of his years. But then that is understandable. When I entered his room, he was lying on the bed and staring at the ceiling. I just stood there observing him. I could make out how bored and listless life has become for him. Though I couldn’t do much to relieve him of old age health issues but surely I could do something to liven up his bedroom and change the whole ambiance. To begin with I decided to change the curtains and the rugs of the room. The bright cheBedroom Furnishingsery colours would add lots of life in the room. I thought of buying curtains online. Both I and uncle had a look on many home furnishings curtains . There was one I liked particularly as it had wide collection of cotton fabric curtain and multi coloured curtains. The choice for bathmats rugs was also immense.
