One of the major advantages of a modern sofa-bed is its multi-functionality: it is both a modern sofa and a bed; thereby it can be used day and night, which is an excellent option for saving some space. However, you must consider that not all of the modern sofa bed types are suitable for everyday folding and unfolding. When choosing a modern sofa bed, be proactive in the choice of the mechanism and quality of your furniture; this will help to insure the longevity and functionality of your couch bed in your home.
There are two main categories of modern sofa beds – Pullout Sofa Beds and Convertible Sofas.
Pullout Sofa Beds

The modern sofa beds with this mechanism are designed to be used more as a seating and occasionally – as a bed. Most of them do not have storage platforms.

They work by pushing the back forward until it "clicks" and then pushing it down flat until it "clacks" and in reverse to put it back into the sofa position. This couch bed is easy to operate; and usually the back of this modern sofa bed is adjustable (has a reclining position). It also often comes with the storage underneath the couch bed.
