Sofa Bed

When you have a limited floor area, one of the easiest ways to save space is by purchasing a sofa bed. A sofa bed is a practical choice especially if you live in a studio unit because you can fold the bed whenever you have guests sleeping over.

RL Tip: Before you purchase a sofa bed, make sure you have the measurements of the space where it will be placed. Measure the sofa bed's dimensions too so you are assured that it will fit perfectly.
