Sofa bed: what type of opening to choose?
When making the decision to buy a sofa bed, there are certain characteristics to which more attention should be paid than others. Generally, the quality, the material and the price weigh on the minimum details.
However, since people started using this piece of furniture for day-to-day life, concerns were also directed towards the opening of the sofa.
This has a reason for being. Before, the sofa beds were an element merely for rest. They were built with resistant materials, comfortable and, in a certain way, bulky. The importance of design contrasted proportionately with the finesse of a Chesterfield, for example.
In the days that run, functionality and style go hand in hand, and customers go out in search of a piece of furniture that meets their needs and, visually, create harmony. In a few words, that meets both qualities to be considered part of the room.
Here, of course, is the ease of opening and closing a sofa bed to include it in the living room and not stealing space from other decorative elements. It may seem like a trifle, but moving everything inside a room to make a little more of a place is not by far the goal with which these furnitures are manufactured.
In this sense, this article has made a collection of sofa bed openings that, without a doubt, are convenient from a practical and decorative perspective. Just keep reading!
