Sofa beds can be a super useful, versatile piece of furniture. Sofa beds are basically couches that can convert into an extra bed if needs be.

Before you go shopping for a new sofa bed, you may be wondering what to look for, and for how long do they last? Like most pieces of furniture, there is a wide variety when it comes to sofa beds. They are all different and come with their own selling points, so you will have better results if you have an idea of what you need before you go looking for it.

How Long Do Sofa Beds Typically Last?

There are a few different variables that can help determine the life expectancy of your sofa bed. According to The Spruce, one thing to consider is how it will be used. A sofa bed that is being used as a sofa first, and a bed occassionally, may have a longer life when it comes to the mattress. Similarly, a sofa bed that is predominantly used as a bed nightly may wear out faster. It also depends on what is happening to the bed. For example, if a sofa bed is being jumped on by kids, it may have a shorter lifespan than if it being treated gently.

There is no fast rule about how long a sofa bed will last. Some brands are more reliable than others. If you are looking for a good starting point, reading reviews is your best bet, and ask your friends and family about their experiences.
