A sofa bed is an excellent addition to your home to create a quick place for your out-of-town guests to sleep while they’re visiting. Unfortunately, many people worry about how comfortable these mattresses in Minneapolis can be for their guests. If your bed is getting older, it’s time to choose the right mattress to replace it with that will add more comfort to those staying with you. Follow these 3 steps.
When it comes to determining the size of mattress that you’ll need for your sofa bed, most people end up getting the wrong size. They get the wrong measurements by assuming they just need to measure the current mattress on the bed. However, the mattress will sink and diminish as it gets squished into your sofa bed. In the end, you’ll get a smaller mattress than you really need.
To measure correctly, remove the mattress. Measure the length and width using the side rails of the bed. When you get your measurements, round them down to the nearest inch. In general, sofa beds will measure 72 inches in length. The width will vary depending on the size of the bed that you have. The width for queen beds is typically 58, 60, or 64 inches; the width for full beds is typically 52 or 54 inches; twin beds measure 35 or 38 inches, and a single bed is 24 inches in width.
The standard thickness for sofa bed mattress is about 4.5 inches. Your bed thickness should range between 4 and 5 inches. If it’s smaller than 4 inches, it won’t provide enough support and comfort to your guests. If it’s larger than 5 inches, it will be hard for you to fold the bed up and put it away when your guests leave. If your mattress needs extra cushioning, you could add a mattress topper or extra blankets that you could remove before putting the bed away.
Besides the type of mattress that comes with the average sofa bed, there are 4 other mattress types that you can consider for your sofa bed: memory foam, natural latex, urethane foam, and air coils.
Just because your guests are staying on your sofa bed doesn’t mean that they have to have a rough night of sleep. Review your options for sofa bed mattresses in Minneapolis, and customize the one that will fit your sofa bed and provide the best support for your guests. Then, make sure that you take good care of the mattress to help lengthen its lifespan.
