Updated on June 23, 2010

Chair Bed: Convenient Choice

A chair bed is a great solution for a home with limited space. Convertible chair beds are a combination of a comfortable chair and a bed, and can be placed in any room of the house.

A bed chair can used in the living room as part of the furniture, and many of the chairs are very comfy to sit in and can be part of a sofa arrangement. They can also be used as reading chairs, for watching TV or for entertaining guests. When you need an extra bed, for example when surprise guests arrive, you can quickly convert it into a sleeping area. Most chairs can be turned into beds in a few minutes.

These convenient pieces of furniture are an excellent choice for small apartments that do not have separate guestrooms and for student halls where room space is very limited. They are even used in hotels as extra beds and can be used wherever there is little space to decorate.

The Amazing Functionality of a Foam Chair Bed

Simply put, a foam chair bed is a foam chair which is also in reality a bed. It is very useful in houses, apartments, or dormitories which have limited spaces. Truly a versatile furniture item, it may be situated in the home’s living room, or in a bedroom.

Both as a chair and a bed, it is totally comfortable to use because of the extreme softness of the foam. Resting a tired bottom and back when seated is quite relaxing, immediately taking off tiredness, and even some stress, away. A specific body shape can fit well into an aptly-sized one from the various sizes.

Lying down on it as a bed is quite comfortable as well, since the foam gently adjusts to each person’s distinct body contour. One can instantly feel its immense softness which provides total relaxation. This then leads to a very contented continuous sleep.

Its dual functionality definitely equates with the attractiveness it brings, especially with the assortment of striking colors available. A piece can make an elegant statement of its own, and beautifully engulfs itself with its surroundings. It is a chair by daytime, and a bed by nighttime, or vice versa. Thus, having a foam chair bed is an absolutely sensible decision.

Chic and Functional Single Chair Bed

A single chair bed can transform a small space into a stylish and functional sleep spot in any room. Perfect for small apartments or late night office hours, the chic new convertibles come in a wide variety of fabrics (including vinyl, micro suede, and leather), colors, and styles to fit in any décor. Choose a wood frame or an ultra modern frameless sleeper chair to coordinate with your room.

Form fitting foam cushions become a single bed that is light enough to move from room to room as needed. Imagine the comfort of a bean bag sleeper chair. It can be a lounge chair, an upright, even an outdoor chair bed in a waterproof material. Extend one of these and sleep like you never did in that dorm chair.

Children may prefer bright and fun fabric. Buy one that can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth, a big boon for mom. Do not sacrifice space for comfort when a single chair bed is all you need to provide a good night’s sleep.

A Futon Chair Bed Is Great For Everybody

Living in a studio apartment can be tight. You have to be able to fit a kitchen, bed, couch and everything else in about five hundred square feet. One way to simplify you living arrangement is to get a futon chair bed. It serves two purposes; it is your couch during the day and your bed at night. His help give you more space and makes it feel more like a home than a large closet. It is very popular for college students also.

The great thing is that you can not even tell that it is a bed; just remember to put your sheets up. You can often get the futons at a fairly cheap price. They are also great for just extra bedding in your home. In a basement is a great place to have them. This way your guest can still have their own bed when they visit; not feel as if they are a bother to you and your family. Needless to say, the futon chair bed is great for almost anyone!

The Benefits of a Convertible Chair Bed

A convertible chair bed is a chair that can be used for sitting during the day, and converted in to a bed at night.

If you have little space in your house or apartment, chair beds are an easy way to use even the smallest living room to your advantage. For houses or apartments without a separate guest room, bed chairs can be used to provide extra sleeping space for guests. The chairs are comfortable to sit on and look good in any room of the house, and when needed, they are easy to convert into a cozy bed.

Hotels often use chair beds as extra beds in guest rooms, but they are an easy way to save space in the home. You can use them in the living room, the office, the children’s room or the study, and turn them into beds in a few minutes. Because they come in a range of styles and materials, chair beds can be matched with any décor.

      We actually thought about getting one of these, but then we moved into a bigger home. They seem like a great, functional way to make good use of limited space.
