This is really like a small sofa bed, and it does take up quite a bit of space, even as a chair. As an armchair it is well padded and comfortable. As a bed it is a good nights sleep. The mattress, although thin, is supported in on a mesh which is held to a metal frame with springs, creating a cushions and comfortable nights sleep. It does however come at a price and is the most expensive option. These do tend to last very well, so if you look at it as an investment, it is a sensible one to make.
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?
This is the cheapest type of convertible chair bed and if you are looking for a bed suitable for an adult this is probably the least comfortable. However, if you are looking for something for a kid or teenager then this could be the perfect solution. These are fairly small when in chair form, so they will not take up too much space. Since they are often sold with kids in mind they often have washable covers, so perfect for your childs room.
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.
