 Sofabed or not
Topic Originator: onlytakes  
Date:   Tue 29 Aug 18:28

In conflict with wife at moment. She wants a double bed put in the spare room for when her mum comes to visit. Now, her mum never visits. I'm talking maybe twice a year she *might* stay.

So I'm suggesting a sofa bed so we can still use the room as an office. However, these seem to cost the Earth if you want a decent one. I've looked at futons but I can't see this working for her auld maw and paw.

Any tips?

Friends had a drop down bed as their main one in their first house, built into a "fake" wardrobe unit - you wouldn't have known it housed a full size double bed unless demonstrated.

It was fully functional and comfortable - and the room could be used as an office or small sitting room otherwise.

I think they are called wall beds.

Buy a quality second hand sofa bed, plenty on line.Only for the spare room after all.

New wife?

Or sofa bed and you two swap your passion wagon for the sofa bed when the old timers come to stay.

Are you going to sit in a sofa in your spare room? Ever? If 2 or less times a year then just get a bed

Also - you just say mum so assuming not dad (but if so apooogies) which means you just need single bed space and there are plenty options of beds that are sofas without being horrible sprung sofa beds. Ikea day beds will give you an idea since I can't articulate it well - but a compromise between the 2

If she only stays twice a year, put her up in nearest travelodge/premier inn, fir
£ 80 a year? get to keep room as is, and someone else cleans up her mess, not saying that she makes a mess ! 😉
