Consider where and what you'll use your chair bed for
In order to choose the right sleeper chair for you, you first need to know what you're planning on using it for and where you intend to place it. How are you going to match your existing décor if you're still torn between the living room and guest room?
If you're mainly going to use it when you have guests over, we recommend looking for one that fits well inside your spare or guest room;
If you could also do with some extra seating and only occasionally need it as a spare mattress, choose a sleeper chair that complements your sofa and armchairs and place it in your living room;
There are also lots of benefits of adding a sleeper chair to your kid's bedroom, from a more spontaneous play and rest time balance to having a place for you to sleep next to them should they feel scared or ill;
Are you a traveler at heart? If you enjoy camping and like the idea of a comfy mattress that you can also use to sit by a bonfire, look for an inflatable sleeper chair.
Figure out the right size
Sleeper chairs might be more compact than sofas and traditional beds, but it most certainly does not mean that you can just wing it!
Once you've figured out exactly where you're going to place your new convertible chair, measure that space to know how much room you've got to play with.;
Don't forget that you must leave enough space for when it's fully extended!
If you haven't got a lot of room but are only planning on unfolding it occasionally, you can always consider moving other chairs or smaller pieces of furniture when you actually have a guest over for the night. Don't worry too much about it feeling a bit cramped once it's open, as long as you've got enough room to physically pull out its mattress!
On the other hand, if you're planning on using its mattress regularly, you should allow for some extra room to walk around it.
