The problem is simple. The foam chair bed is not a bed, it never has been and it never will be. It is however, a perfectly adequate place to sleep. But, just as you would not put your most important guests to sleep on a mattress on the floor, so you should not put them to sleep on a foam bed.
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?
The first thing I did was make sure that I bought ones with washable covers, essential what ever the age of the kid. Next I bought ones which were slightly patterned, but not specifically targeted at an age or sex. So I avoided the ones with little footballers on, and space rockets. I opted for dark blue wavy patterns. This meant that any marks I couldn`t get off didn`t show too much. It also meant that I could easily throw a couple of cushions on them and make them look a bit better.
Before you choose an furniture for a room you need to estimate how much it will be used as a bed and how much it will be used as a chair. Next look at where you want to place it and how much space you can allocate. Finally review what is available within your budget.
