Now that living space at home is a top priority for many, sleeper sofas have become the focus at the Home Living Furniture stores in New Jersey. Sleeper sofas, often called sofa beds, are multi-functional pieces that can serve two purposes – seating and sleeping space - and free up space in the home.
Creating a Home Office for Remote Work
According to Deepak Jain, owner of Home Living Furniture in Howell and Middletown, New Jersey, sleeper sofas have come a long way in terms of comfort and usefulness. “People are taking a fresh look at sleeper sofas to learn about their usefulness. Many of our customers are working from home these days. The question becomes, where can they set up a home office?” he said.
“People may have a spare guest room with a traditional bedroom set that takes up a lot of space but does not get a lot of use. That spare guest room can easily function as a comfortable home office that is used every day, instead of waiting for the occasional overnight guest to arrive. For many customers, a sleeper sofa is the answer.”
A stylish sleeper sofa in the guest room can still provide sleeping space when needed, and as part of the home office it becomes a comfortable spot to relax between calls, strategize before an online meeting or simply take short breaks throughout the day. Sleeper sofas can also create a multi-purpose area in the living room, great room and basement.
Selecting the Right Sleeper Sofa
Today people have a large selection of sleeper sofas to choose from. Sofa beds come in styles ranging from traditional to contemporary in a wide range of sizes. Mr. Jain noted that customers take their lifestyle into consideration before making a decision.
“Sleeper sofas come in every fabric, from beautiful fine leather to delicate materials in light colors,” he said. “Young families with active children and pets that love to sleep on the sofa may do better with vinyl that can provide the look of leather along with the durability to withstand that kind of use. Another option is to find out about performance fabrics that allow you to choose lighter colors, even in highly trafficked areas.”
Finding a sleeper sofa in the right size is of the utmost importance. “Before you choose a sleeper sofa, make sure you have enough room for it when the mattress is fully extended,” said Deepak Jain. “If you put your new sleeper sofa in the living room, for example, you will want to make sure that it will not hit the cocktail table when you open it as a bed.”
Sleeper sofas come in a range of sizes from a smaller twin size to a queen or even a king size mattress. A nice size sofa can turn into a queen or king size bed, while a two-seater loveseat can hide a full or a twin size mattress. Even an ottoman can turn into a twin-size mattress at night.
“We invite people to come to our furniture stores in New Jersey, or shop at the online virtual store that features all the items we carry in Howell,” he said. “If people visit the Howell showroom in person, they will appreciate our 40,000 square foot showroom with many sleeper sofas on display to make shopping easier.”
