I love the foam bed. I have to confess to having several and they are great. I have two boys and each kid has one in their room, and I could not imagine life without them. So why are foam chair beds so good? Well, firstly, let me explain that I was fully aware of what I was buying why I purchased my foam chair beds. I knew that they would be kept in kids rooms, so I took a few precautions.
The foam chair bed is a rather odd item of furniture, or perhaps not? Maybe the problem with the foam chair bed is that we simply don`t understand it. We all know the expression about putting square pegs in round holes, well, I think this is a bit what we have done wit the foam chair bed. Admittedly it is an understandable mistake. The name of the item of furniture implies that it is a chair and a bed. But I don`t think the name `foam seat and mattress` is likely to take off?
My assumption was that they would sit and read on these chairs when feeling tired and not sociable enough to want to be with anyone else in the family. So I got them a little wooden box to go next to their foam chairs so that they would have somewhere to put their book and drink, other than the floor.
The other use for their chairs was for when friends came to stay. I am fully aware of the fact that when my kids have friends over to stay that I am the least welcome person in their room. Hence I had to make sure that they could prepare the beds themselves. This is where the foam chair bed comes into its own. They can do it all themselves. I never expect it to be made up properly like a bed. I simply give the kids a plain sheet, a pillow and a sleeping bag. Then when everyone is ready for bed my sons simply have to unfold the chair bed, place a sheet on top, and throw on a pillow and sleeping bag; how much easier could life be?
