Sofa Bed Mattress and Covers

Updated on June 27, 2015

Sofa Bed Mattress

A mattress is a mattress is simply not true and especially a Sofa Bed Mattress. Generally the sofa mattress which is delivered with the new sofa is not all that handsome, nor is it comfortable. You can have only one guest to spend the night and you will definitely find this out. For some reason they usually are lacking in quality and comfort. As with any item a person is choosing for either their company to sleep on, or for them self, when there are insufficient beds to sleep on, one hopes for a comfortable place to get a little shut eye. Sometimes it means that the kids have one or two more friends than usual who find it necessary to spend the night instead of going home.

Sofa bed mattresses are also for anyone who has a small apartment; studio for instance and there is no other place to sleep. These options will limit your sleepless nights or the back ache which occurs when not having sufficient back support and comfort while trying to get a good nights rest.

It is best to explore the Sofa Bed Mattress before the unexpected company comes or immediately upon moving into an apartment where you must sleep on the sofa bed. Wise advice is to already have a replacement mattress available. There are different makes and types just like anything else and of course these are available so that your time on the sofa, if applicable is not like sleeping on the floor.

Sofa Mattress Designs

Sofa Bed Mattresses Replacements come in different designs and materials, and this article will discuss 2 of these:

  • Memory foam and high density Plush foam
  • Closely knitted structures which makes for more body contact which can relieve pressure points and provides comfort
  • More support as the foam moves with the body and absorbs the shock of body movement
  • These allow you to move more aggressively without remembering you are sleeping on the sofa
  • Most foam sofa mattresses have covers which are machine washable
  • The better memory foam mattresses come with no fillers and toxic additives, which means that there is no harmful gasses or odors
  • These memory foam mattresses do not sag and hold their shape and when you rise it will return to the original shape before lying on them

Sofa Bed Matress Pad/Covers

If you do not want to replace what you have and it is doable but need a little lift think about a Sofa Bed Mattress Cover. They come in very comfortable designs to offer cushion, softness and durability and substantially enhance your sleep on the sofa.

Some are:

  • Gusseted Sofa Bed Topper which is made out of 1 inch thick gusset
  • Cotton shell which may be washed off with a cloth/spot clean or it may be dry cleaned
  • Some may be washed in a commercial washer/dryer on delicate cycle
  • Usually imported
  • Some comes for regular and queen size
  • Overfilled Ultra soft Micro-plush …these are ultra soft and give the comfort need for anyone who want the softness instead of the more firm mattress.
  • Waterproof mattress pads are also available to limit accidents for older individuals or little children
  • Hypoallergenic Mattress Protectors are also available which are 100% waterproof and will eliminate dust mites

Air-Dream Sofa Mattresses

Air-Dream Sofa Mattresses are:

  • Easily inflated to fit the sofa bed
  • These sofa bed mattresses are fit with inner-springs which so many other sofa mattresses do not have. This is comfort will make you think you are on your regular bedroom mattress that has the inner-springs.
  • Reviews indicate that the inner-springs cannot be felt while sleeping on the mattress
  • When deflated, these are the size of a regular Sofa Bed Mattress and it is quick and easy to deflate
  • These mattresses can be made to be comfy by adding just a mattress pad as this combines the firm with the soft and makes these beds just right.
  • These also have warranties not only for the mattress, but the air chamber and air chamber valve for three year period. The inflator is covered for 1 year
  • It also comes with a repair kit
  • These can also be used on a platform bed if you choose

The latter Air-Dream Sofa Mattress could very well be put not only on a platform bed, but if necessary on the floor. You can very easily add a thick mattress cover with pillow top design to add even more soft comfort.

      Thank you Pamela99 for coming by here to read this review. You are right they have improved and I think it probably depends upon the quality of the sofa. You always pay...for what you get. If want quality you may have to pay a little more; but it will last much longer. I have a sofa (not a sofa bed) that I bought long, long ago. My Mom used it after I did and I had it covered after than and it is in my living room now. It was made well and it has lasted.

      Thanks for dropping by.
