If you often work late and have a commute, you have probably wished more than once for a way for you to catch a few hours of sleep. If you have a decent-sized office, it can be really easy to add some sleeping quarters by adding a small pull-out sofa or loveseat. These love seats have a bed that pulls out when the cushions are removed, revealing a reasonably comfortable bed.
Even if you don’t have a large office, you could get a pull-out sofa bed for your waiting room or reception area. This would give everyone in the office the ability to sleep in the building if necessary. It is also important to get a couch with a bed that is comfortable enough to provide quality sleep. If you are using this piece of furniture at work it is because you only have a few hours to sleep, and that just makes the quality of your sleep that much more important.
You might think that a sofa sleeper is going to be too expensive, but there are some ways that you can cut corners on price without sacrificing your precious sleep. Here are some things to keep in mind when adding a pull-out sofa with a mattress to your office space.
Consider these pros and cons before buying a used sofa with a mattress
It can be tempting to buy an expensive piece of furniture like a sofa second-hand to save some money, but there are a lot of downsides to doing so. If you buy the sofa used, you will definitely need to buy a new mattress. Even if it looks like it is in good condition, using the mattress of someone else is never a good idea, and it is actually illegal to sell a used mattress in the United States.
Another hygiene-related concern is the possibility of pests within the sofa itself. A sofa could be harboring cockroaches or bedbugs, both of which are extremely difficult – and expensive – to irradicate from your home once they have invaded.
Buying a used sofa can also actually end up costing you more than buying one new online. You will have to pay for it to be shipped or delivered to you, then you’ll have to pay for a mattress with shipping and handling. Choosing the right mattress can also be difficult, especially if it is an older vintage pull-out sofa.
On the other hand, buying a new sofa sleeper can actually save you money in the long run. Whether it helps you use that money for other necessities or allows you to buy a better quality pull-out couch is up to you. The most common ways to save are:
- Free delivery to your home
- No interest financing same as cash (when paid within a certain amount of time and with approved credit)
- Ongoing online furniture sales and mattress clearance sections
