If you are one of the lucky few that have a pergola, you certainly experienced moments in which you wondered how to make the most out of that space. Why not get a swing sofa bed?
Choosing a swing sofa bed for your pergola is not something that would give you much of a headache but there are few things to keep in mind when looking at different models. If you pick the wrong one, the worst thing that can happen is for you to have to return it. Certainly, that implies some inconvenience, wasted hours assembling and disassembling it, and waiting for the money to be returned so that you can order a new swing sofa bed. Here is how you can avoid this and get the right one.
- Size matters. The size of your pergola determines what type of sofa bed you can get in terms of size. Depending on the design of the swing sofa bed, it may require a certain pergola size for the bed to get enough shade throughout the day.
- Model type. There are several variations when it comes to a swing sofa bed. You can get the classic model that looks like a regular sofa that also works like a swing or a model that looks like a floating bed. Keep in mind that the classic swing sofa bed is more compact while the models that have a full-size mattress will require a bigger pergola.
- Choice of materials. You might be tempted to get a swing sofa bed that is simple and made with a steel frame. It will save you money but it is also more likely to develop rust. A wooden swing sofa bed can be more resilient over time if the wood is of high quality, it will look better and it will feel more welcoming. You will have to pay a bit more for a wooden swing sofa bed but it will be well worth the spend.
