There are basically three types of chair which convert to beds; the futon chair bed, foam chair bed and the armchair bed. There all have advantages and disadvantages. Below is a quick guide to get you started and help you establish what you should be looking for.
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?
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.
