Sofas Center / July 11, 2017 / Nanine
Sleeper sofas are very popular and with good reason. They provide you with a comfortable and fashionable place to sit while at the same time giving your guests a place to sleep when needed. The advantages of a sleeper couch are well known and documented and more and more people are turning to them when it comes time to buy a sofa. Where people run into problems with sleeper sofas is when they have either a small space for the sofa or a difficult pathway such as a tight corner or hallway. An extra small door frame can literally eliminate a regular sized sleeper sofa. Fortunately there are some super high quality options for small sofa sleepers that work beautifully and provide all the same benefits as a full size sofa.
Before wrapping a sofabed ("hide-a-bed" couch) for moving make sure that the sofa can fit through the doors and can be safely moved out and brought into your new home. Try to remember if the sofa bed was moved in as one piece or if it was assembled inside. Was there any remodeling done that might have narrowed the hallway? If you think that the sofa would not fit through the door call the original store or sofa-bed manufacturer and see if they can come and disassemble it for you and then reassemble in the new place. This service might cost around $175.00 and it is well worth it.
When you buy a sofa you expect it to last a number of years. In order for this to happen you must make sure you are purchasing a good quality product. This will also save you money in the long run as you won`t need to replace parts or the whole sofa. Don`t be afraid to ask questions about a sofa`s quality when shopping. Make sure every part of it (internal and external) has a warranty and that there are no shortcuts such as real leather on the seats but artificial leather on the back of the sofa. If they are taking shortcuts on the outside you don`t know what shortcuts they`ve taken on the inside.
