The Ikea Sofa Bed Collection
To help take some of the confusion out of buying a new mattress, Cheap Mattress Reviews was founded to provide you with consumer reviews of all the leading mattresses available today.
If you’ve ever been to one of their 39 US stores or shopped online at Ikea you will be aware of the type of household products they offer – value-for-money items made of good quality materials and stylish in design, that are often self-assembled and able to be carried home in the back of the car. The Ikea sofa bed collection is no different.
Ikea make quite an extensive range of sofa beds and sofa bed covers. The main ranges include the the Lovas which are $200-400,the Havet, which range in price from $300-500, the Murbo which are $250-350, the Resmpo which are $350-450, the Ektorp which are $650- 800, the Hagalund which are around $500, the Karlstad which are $800-900 and the Kivik which are $750 – $1010. You can see from this alone that there are many styles and choices available.
If we look at their most basic range and their most expensive range you should get an idea of the types of Ikea sofa beds available.
The Lovas range sofa beds are 78 3/4 “(2 meters) wide by 41 inches (just over a meter) deep and 35 7/8″ (91 cm) tall. They convert into a bed that is big enough for 2 sleepers. The bed’s frame is made of steel and it has 4 feet to raise it off the floor, made of polypropylene. These beds come with a simple, firm polyurethane foam mattress made from 1.7 lb/cu.ft foam that can be used every night and may be used with a mattress pad, which can be a good idea for extra protection from stains. In any case they come provided with a removable cotton cover that can be machine-washed and it may be an idea to get an extra cover for use while it’s being washed. All of these sofa beds are fire retardant.
The Kivik range of sofa-beds is more stylish than the Lovas range but is around 3 times the price. The extra benefits provided by these beds are extra width (around 96 1/2 ” sofa) allowing more seating space, with a soft, deep seat which provides comfortable back support – this seat may include a layer of 3.1 lb/cu.ft memory foam in some of the models. They also feature an easy fold out system for when the sofa will be used as a bed. Also the armrests include a smart storage system, with a zipped cover, so that you can keep your things hidden away! Some of them also come with a foot-stool. The frame of these sofa beds is made of fiberboard, particleboard, plywood and pine. Also provided is an easily removable, dry-clean only cotton cover for ease of maintenance.
In addition to the ranges mentioned and described above Ikea also stock chair beds which fold down into a single/twin bed.
A novel addition to all their ranges has been mounting the chair and sofa-beds on caster wheels, making moving very easy for cleaning or for re-locating to another room.
If you want to buy Ikea sofa bed units the best place to start is online, where they list some 12,000 products, but at some point it will be best to go to the store and check out comfort and support levels, both in sofa position and bed position.
