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.
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?
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.
