How To Use Your Sofa Bed

How to use sofa beds? Sofa beds are great if you want to add versatility to your room, accommodate guests and save space and money! Buying a sofa bed, like most other furniture, is fun, however how to open it and use it may be somehow confusing to some of us, hence, we have put this guide to help you understanding how to use your sofa bed to make sure it lasts.

At Sydney Furniture Direct, we offer the following types of sofa beds:

1- The Traditional Bi-Fold Sofa Bed with Innerspring Mattress:

This type usually looks just like a traditional sofa except that there’s a folding mattress hidden inside. It comes with a built-in bed mechanism and an innerspring mattress which can be folded out to use and tucked under the seat cushions when not needed.

How to use Sofa beds (Bi-Fold):

To open your bi-fold sofa bed in the correct way, please follow the steps and diagrams:

Step 1

Remove Cushions and locate a metal handle (bar). Grip it firmly, pull it up and then out.

Step 2

The bed frame should slide right out. Set the base down.

Step 3

Firmly grip the middle metal bar, on top of the mechanism, using two hands and pull it up and out to unfold the bed frame

Step 4

Unfold the mattress and enjoy your bed!

To avoid damaging your sofa bed and make sure that it is always there to help when needed:

  • Don’t sit on the folded bed frame.
  • Don’t sit on the edge of the bed frame as it is not designed to carry large weight.
  • Don’t jump or stand on the sofa bed.
  • Don’t attempt to fold the sofa bed with the headrest up.
  • Don’t attempt to fold the sofa bed while the sheets and pillows are still on the mattress.

2- Modern Pull-Out and Lift-Up Sofa Beds:

Designed to be a lounge and a comfortable bed, however, unlike the traditional sofa beds, this type has no exposed mattress or bed frame. The bed section pulls out from under the seats and pushes outwards and upwards. There is not much set up, easy to use!

How to use Sofa beds (Pull-out and Lift-up):

To open your your pull-out and lift-up sofa bed in the correct way, please follow the steps and diagrams:

Step 1

Using both hand, hold the metal bar and, gently, pull the bed unit out from under the cushions. Bring the bed unit out as far as you can. To avoid any damage to your sofa bed, never use force to pull bed unit out. Also, never use the (handles) to pull out the bed unit from underneath the seat cushions.

Step 2

Once you can’t pull the bed unit out any further, use the (handles) attached to the bed unit to lift the cushion-like mattress up. Handles are only to be used to pull the cushion-like mattress up.

Step 3

With your cushion-like mattress lifted, gently, pull it up and out. The locking mechanism is automatic so no force is required. As you pull it up and out, the cushion will set into place on top of the bed unit’s frame. The cushion will stay in place and you can set your pillows, bed spread, and blanket on top of the cushions, Enjoy your bed!

To avoid damaging your sofa bed and make sure that it is always there to help when needed:

  • Never use force to open or close your sofa bed.
  • Don’t Sit on the side of the bed mechanism. This area is not designed to carry large weights.
  • Don’t jump or stand on your lounge and/or sofa bed.
