How to Choose and Maintain Your Modern Sofa Bed

Posted on

Sofa beds are great for both small and big homes because they are practical, can help save you money and are easy to pack up if you move.

Having a small room can no longer an excuse not to host people or out of town guests. Your stylish sofa can transform into a bed in seconds.

The color, design, storage, price and bed style are factors to think about when you’re deciding on the best sofa bed for your home. Some models allow you to choose a left or right side facing chaise, which is the part of the sofa that allows you to stretch out your legs.

Here are three styles you can look at.

How to maintain and protect your sofa bed

A sofa bed is a significant investment and it’s important to maintain it well to ensure it lasts as long as possible.

And at some point, one of your guests will spill a drink on your sofa bed or bring a pet that will make a noticeable stain. There are a few ways you can protect your sofa bed without covering it in plastic or worse, not inviting people over.

Synthetic leather sofa bed

Faux leather is more durable than real leather. You can easily clean it by following these steps: 

  1. Soak a cloth or sponge with warm water to wipe away dust and dirt. 
  2. If your sofa has tougher grime, you can use unscented soap, liquid soap or dish detergent to make sure no chemicals affect the leather. 
  3. Wipe away the soap thoroughly with a wet cloth. 
  4. Let the surface dry or speed up the process by using a dry cloth.

Be sure not to leave any soap on it while you're cleaning because it could damage the leather.

Linen sofa bed

Here are the ways you can clean these different kinds of stains.

You can keep your linen sofa beds clean using different products for certain types of stains.
Type of stain Action
A few light stains Dab the stain with lukewarm water on a wet cloth.
Coffee or tea Blotch the stains with glycerin. Once the glycerin soaks in the fabric for a few minutes, you can wash it off with lukewarm water.
Lipstick or face powder stains Dab them with either alcohol and wash them off with lukewarm water.
Grease Use a small amount of petrol or trichloroethylene. Dab the stains, then spread talc on the area and brush it off thoroughly. Rinse thoroughly the treated area with water and let it dry.

Leather sofa bed

Before you use your sofa bed, you can protect it with a leather care agent. It adds a layer to protect from dust and make cleaning easier.

Before applying the leather care agent, first you have to use a clean towel, wet it with water, wring it out and wipe the sofa gently. Afterwards, you can apply the leather care agent on the towel and wipe the sofa once or twice.

It’s ideal to clean the sofa every two or three months.

Here is how you can clean up stains on your leather sofa bed:

    1. If your sofa gets dirty with an oil stain or a pen, use the leather care agent and wipe the stain lightly.

    2. Use a dry towel with a bit of water to wipe the surface again.

    3. Use the leather care agent again to add a protective lawyer.

Avoid using cleaning solvents, varnish, abrasive cleaners, soap detergent soaps, ammonia or too much water to clean the leather because it can cause more damage to the surface.


A sofa bed is a cost-effective and practical way to host guests, allow people from out of town to stay over and save space in your room. Your preferred color, design, need for storage, price, and bed style are important factors to consider wen you decide which sofa bed you want to get fr your home. Once you choose your sofa bed, understand what materials it is made of so you can properly maintain it and effectively clean up any stains.
