If you have limited space, of if you simply need an extra guest bed, then a sleeper sofa or futon is the perfect solution. JC Penny is one department store that carries a quite large collection of different sleeper sofas and futons in various styles such as leather sleeper sofas and upholstered futons. Some of these sofas are light and fine - more modern and contemporary, whereas others are heavier and darker - more classic. Picking one of the right design is of course pretty important if you want to create a neat and uniform impression.
Another thing that is pretty cool with a futon is that you can often find matching covers which enable you to quickly and easily change the design of the sofa. This can be great since it enables you to switch the design when you get sick of the current style, however it also makes it much easier to clean the cover if it gets dirty! So before buying one you might want to check what size the mattress is so you can ensure there are lots of different covers to choose between.
A sleeper sofa should be just as comfortable as any other sofa to sit in, and of course even more comfortable to sleep in. If you're only planning on having this futon as an occasional sofa bed, then the quality of the mattress may not be that important. If however you're going to use it to mainly sleep on it yourself, then it could definitely be a good idea to pick one of slightly higher quality where the mattress is thicker and structure is better built. These JC Penny sleeper sofas and futons are simple, however practical and would fit great in most homes. They are great because they are so affordable, so if you're in need of something but you don't have a very large budget, then they would certainly be worth a look.
