This will make it easier to purchase the right piece the first time around. Better Homes and Gardens has a great kit that can be gotten on line called DYI arrange-a-room.
A customer mentioned to us recently that the wood frame futon and good mattress she had purchased from us was the best investment she'd made for her new apartment. It replaced an old hand me down couch from her parents that had worn out. It was serving a double duty purpose in her living room. She mentioned it was both casual and chic in her small space. She was happy with the way it sat and everyone who had slept on it mentioned how comfortable it felt. She was back to add a matching table set.
Consider a futon chair or loveseat if a full size is too large. It will make a wonderful and comfortabale place to sit and opens to make a twin or full size bed when needed. It pulls out straight from the front instead of opening like the full and queens. These take either an ottoman or pull out lounge peice under the seat of the chair or loveseat to open into a bed
A second choice would be to use a day bed with storage or a trundle underneath. They also come in a variety of finishes and styles. Keeping it simple is the best idea. Daybeds are best used when your room will be used more for sleeping than sitting. They are not quite as comfortable to sit on, needing extra large back pillows for sitting.Small rooms can be a challenge but by thinking outside the box you can create a comfortable and useful room for you and your family. The right furniture and design will give you a spacious feel and look.
