c-European sofa beds: These are the pinnacles of sleepers today. Real \"Made in Europe\" ones give you an excellent sleeper. To avoid cheap Chinese imitations is a must. The biggest exporter is Turkey. Pros: * Great sleeping and sitting quality: There are models with both excellent sleeping and sitting comfort. * Comes with storage: Most of the models come with an easy to access, spacious storage place. * Easy to use mechanism. Unlike the pull-out ones, their mechanisms are very easy to function. *Inner spring structure: Although there are models with foam cushions available, majority of them come with a durable orthopedic innerspring structure. *Built in Cushion: Unlike futons, you don't have to buy the frame and the cushion separately. They come with a built in mattress which doesn't slide under you. Cons: *Un-exchangeable cushion: When the cushion gets old, it is not possible to replace it. But for most of the consumers it shouldn't be a problem since European Sofa beds are very strongly built and even with everyday usage as a bed, they last for a decade. * Firm sitting and sleeping surface: For most Americans, not only sofa beds but all European made sofas are firm for their taste. It is a very relative concept and someone's \"firm\" is another one's \"Soft\". European sofa beds come in firm, mid-firm and soft models. Even if you are a \"soft\" crazy, there is still a chance for you to find a model for your taste. Most probably their \"soft\" model would be \"mid-firm\" for your taste..
The last piece you see with some sectional sofas are large ottomans. Since my experience shows that most people like to stretch out on a sofa, an ottoman allows this without taking up any more room on the sofa itself. This is a great way to expand the sitting space to seat more people.
The fabric of the sofa also plays a very important role in its selection. You have to decide whether your sofa will be used for formal occasions or will be used very regularly. Leather recliners can be great but may pinch your pockets slightly harder. If you have kids, the sofa will get some roughing up frequently. Children tend to drop food, juices and other junk on the sofa. The sofa, in such cases must be very simple and practical. It may have busy prints to hide the stains and dark colors to keep people from noticing the little \"accidents\", as the best detergents and dry cleaners may not be able to remove them completely.
You will also have to consider the comfort level you expect from your sofa set. Sofas may be very firm or very fluffy. The backside could be tight or fitted with removable pillows. A lot of people prefer pillowed sofas as they are very relaxing and comfortable. Other things to consider are the angle at which the back of the sofa is kept and the depth of the seat of the sofa. Some people like sofas that have very soft seats while others want a firm sofa seat. Only you will be able to decide the type that keeps you most comfortable.
