So, if you're missing out on this essential addition to your home, keep reading.

How to Choose a Sofa Bed in the UK - Buying Guide

Since there are so many different sofa beds to choose from, it can be difficult to know which product suits you the most. To ensure that you buy the best sofa bed available, we've created this buying guide to help you get started. 

Click-Clack Mechanisms Are Best, but Folding Sofa Beds Are Also Convenient

Click-Clack Mechanisms Are Best, but Folding Sofa Beds Are Also Convenient

Click-clack beds are the most popular type of sofa beds, named after the clicking sound that they make when the frame is locked into place. They're a good choice if you'd like an everyday sofa that transforms into a comfortable bed – they feel just like any standard bed, which is why they're ideal for turning your living room into a guest room. 


Alternatively, you could go for a fold-out bed, which will typically be more compact. Though space-saving, bear in mind they are usually laid out on the floor instead of click-clacks with a mattress frame. 


For top-quality comfort, we'd recommend a click-clack bed, but if you don't plan on using your sofa bed very often, you can opt for a fold-out bed to save a bit of money and space

Make Sure it Has a Comfortable Mattress - Foam Is Popular, Springs Are Flexible

Make Sure it Has a Comfortable Mattress - Foam Is Popular, Springs Are Flexible

Of course, the most important thing besides the type of sofa bed is comfort for the sleeper. To do this, you'll need to decide whether you'd like a foam mattress or a spring mattress, both of which have a range of benefits.


Foam mattresses minimise the bounce-back from the pressure applied when changing position, while springs offer more unrestricted movement, which might be better if you're not keen on the sinking feeling of a foam mattress. 


However, foam mattresses are most commonly found in sofa beds due to their adaptability to provide comfort as both beds and sofas, and you may have to pay a little more for spring varieties

Neutral Tones Blend Well, But a Splash of Colour Is Good, Too!

Neutral Tones Blend Well, But a Splash of Colour Is Good, Too!

When you're scrolling through the sofa beds on various websites, you'll notice that some of the products come with a wide variety of shades and different materials, while others only offer a choice of one or two. 


In general, neutral tones will suit many different decors and are more likely to go with the furniture you already have. Plus, they'll stand the test of time no matter how often you redecorate. 


On the other hand, colourful or quirky choices can transform an otherwise plain room, such as a spare room or rented home you aren't able to decorate. However, they may not match your tastes or what's fashionable in homewares in several years, so choose carefully!

Included Pillows Mean That You Don't Need to Buy Your Own

Included Pillows Mean That You Don't Need to Buy Your Own

We know that you can't exactly keep pillows on your living room sofa, but some sofa beds have multi-purpose cushions that you can also rest your head on while you sleep. Most sofa beds are designed to slot comfortably in your living room without looking too obvious, so cushions are usually included. 


However, some sofa beds are particularly useful for small, compact spaces, or guest rooms, so they are unlikely to include cushions with the product. We'd recommend that you try and go for a sofa bed with included cushions to save you from the hassle of buying extra!

Check the Dimensions and Whether the Bed Is Double or Single

Check the Dimensions and Whether the Bed Is Double or Single

As when buying any piece of furniture, don't forget to check the dimensions of the sofa bed to ensure it will fit and meets your expectations. As well as the overall size, you should choose a sofa bed that comfortably supports the number of guests you need it for. 


Or, perhaps you are buying one to save space in your dorm or bedroom – either way, we'd recommend a double, as most singles don't provide enough space to move freely in your sleep. However, space isn't always unlimited, so we've added a selection of both to our list to give you a good variety to choose between.

Now you're ready to take all of the tips from above and make an informed decision on which sofa bed is best for you, it's time to introduce our favourite products. We've made sure there's a colour, size, and style option for every home!

    If you’re lucky enough to have access to a wood-burning fireplace, then you can look forward to one of life’s most enjoyable pleasures: spending cosy nights around a glowing hearth. However, a decent fire will require a decent amount of wood and somewhere for that wood to live, making an indoor or outdoor log holder an essential.  A trusty firewood rack should be both functional, and if living inside, aesthetically pleasing. There's a variety of options from log baskets to decorative modern pieces, but while they all do a similar job, there are a few features that make some better suited to different situations. So, that’s what we’re going to explore with this guide and recommendations from Amazon, eBay and John Lewis.
