A foam chair bed is a kind of folding chair mainly made of foam that can be used as both a chair and bed. It's a good choice for those who are looking to host overnight guests or take advantage of the small space in the room and make some decorations.

Types of foam chair beds

Here are several types of foam convertible chair beds including fold-out foam chair beds and pull-out chair beds.

The folding foam chair bed, also called click-clack chair bed, is designed so that the seat and back of the chair are rolled flat for use as a sleeping surface. It is usually made of solid foam, suitable for sitting and sleeping. It also tends to be low to the ground once the chair bed is unfolded. In terms of appearance, foam chair beds are becoming more and more contemporary, and there are often a limited number of upholstery options. However, if floor space is an important consideration, they are an affordable option, have short lead times, and are compact.

A pull-out chair bed looks like a traditional armchair. Its chair seat cushion is removed, and a folding bed frame is pulled out from the chair seat cavity, with a dedicated mattress on top. The backrest and arms of the armchair remain in place, which means the bed takes up more floor space than a fold-out model, but the sleeping surface tends to be higher from the ground and more like a standard bed.

Factors that need to be considered when choosing a foam chair bed

There are a few things to look out for when buying a foam chair that turns into a bed.

The first factor is the style and design. The foam chair bed should fit the user's home décor in both color and style, and there are many various designs and styles for the user to choose from. The second is the flexibility and ease of use. Whether the user can lay down the chair bed flat, adjust the angle of the bed, fold down the chair bed, or put it away easily decides if it can meet the user's needs. Another critical factor is the assembly. Some flip-out chair beds are fully assembled, while others need the user to assemble them from scratch. The fourth feature is comfort. The user had better check if the chair bed has armrests and a back that can support and cushion well. Foam mattresses always offer a better sleeping experience than spring mattresses, but the thickness also plays a role. Besides, durability, materials, and weight capacity should also be double-checked to make sure the chair bed is strong enough to support the user's weight with ease. Last but not least, the user should find out whether the chair bed comes with a warranty.
