While multi-purpose spaces are not a new idea, as the cost-of-living increases, customers are becoming more creative in what they need and how they buy for their homes. With many modern homes now on the smaller side, homeowners and renters are looking to introduce quality pieces that are stylish, smart in design and offer longevity.
As the UK’s most reviewed sofa bed company, Cocoon has revolutionised the traditional sofa bed with a dynamic and versatile design suited to all spaces. Craig Rutter, Sleep Expert and Founder of Cocoon, is here to share his top three tips on how to master mixed-use spaces and why sofa beds are the perfect choice to inhabit these spaces:
Choose multi-use furniture
“An essential element of mixed-use spaces, multi-use furniture helps to maximise on space by serving multiple functions in one, which in turn is also cost-effective as customers are enjoying two pieces of furniture for the price of one.
A Cocoon sofa bed is an ideal example of this as it provides a functional sofa during the day which opens in one swift movement into a spacious sofa bed at night. In addition, the larger models come with built-in storage providing extra space for spare bedding and pillows.”
Don’t compromise on quality
“Buy well, buy once. While it may be tempting to buy cheaper furniture to keep costs down, this often comes with a compromise on quality and longevity, which in turn means potentially replacing furniture later. Instead, look to buy pieces that can meet the required expectations which are well-made and well-priced.
Each of Cocoon’s sofa beds come with a built-in pocket-sprung mattress, meaning a deeper mattress for deeper sleep – just like a real bed – alongside a lifetime guarantee on every product.”
“Whether a living room or a home office, to help create the illusion of more space, it’s key to create zones to highlight the different areas. In a home office, create a dedicated workspace with a desk, chair and home comforts such as shelving and statement artwork.
To separate this from the rest of the room, add a sofa bed to create a cosy corner on the other side, complete with a rug and small coffee table. This will naturally create two zones in one room, whilst also being easy to adapt to a spare bedroom when needed.”
Cocoon has reinvented the sofa bed to put its customers first with an innovative deeper, pocket-sprung mattress, easy one-touch opening system, built-in storage and multiple model sizes, fabrics and colours to choose from.
