How to Pick a Mattress Pad for a Sleeper Sofa
Picking a Mattress Pad:
Soft or Firm
Determine whether you prefer a firm or soft sleeping surface, because you can buy either option. Also, determine which features you want in a mattress pad. Some options serve only to protect the existing mattress, while others enhance the comfort and performance of the underlying surface.
Consider any allergies that your frequent guests might have. If your mom visits multiple times a year and is highly sensitive to down, skip the feather-filled mattress pad regardless of how heavenly it feels to you.
Think About Storage
Think about where you will store the new mattress pad because storage considerations may impact your selection. Although many sleeper sofa mattress pads fold up with the sofa bed, dense or thick pads need to be stored somewhere else when it’s time to pack away the couch.
Read the measurements to make sure you purchase the correct mattress pad size for your sleeper sofa. Most sleeper sofas become either standard full- or queen-size beds, but measure the mattress if you are not sure.
Mattress Pad Tips:
Memory foam is a revolutionary material that offers excellent support without excessive bulk or firmness. Many mattress pads feature this material, and it can offer a good night’s sleep even on a substandard mattress, making it a prime choice for a sofa bed.
You do not need to limit your search to mattress pads made specifically for sleeper sofas. As long as the measurements fit, most mattress pads will work.
