Get all the details in this in-depth Couchbed review.
Even before I moved to a smaller house, I’ve always been a fan of versatile furniture.
Double use, double duty or reversible furniture is my jam. Small space, company for the Holidays or sleepovers, all this shouldn’t be a problem anymore.
These days there are tons of furniture pieces available almost everywhere like Amazon, Overstock or target. Ottoman into a bench got it. Bean Bag into a mattress, own it too. Oh let’s not forget about the Lounger that turns into a mattress and then into a chair AND FOLDS UP to be out away or to travel with! I absolutely LOVE my convertible furniture pieces especially that they are not bulky and don’t take up too much space, talk about convenience.
But then it gets so much better as soon as I discovered (drum roll please) The CouchBed. I instantly thought how this one is going to be a game changer. I have a 4th grader who is having at least a friend or two for sleepovers every once in a while and this CouchBed is going to come in handy situations like this. And indeed it did when he had a friend over last Friday. They used the CouchBed as a couch to play video games sitting next to each other and when it was bed time and after they kids flipped it into a mattress (which is something they found really fun and cool to do), I simply put the right mattress cover and voilà! Our guest was ready to hit the hay.
We like to include videos of the products that we review so that you can get a better feel for: their size, how they look and feel, etc. When I updated this post I was surprised to find that 30,000 people have viewed this video, so it must be a good one.
I’ll let you in on a secret, I have had the Couchbed for over a year now. It is used more often than I thought it would be. You can see from the video that it is the twin size so it doesn’t take up too much room. My youngest, 4 year old, will drag it around with her, and she fights with her big brother over it sometimes. In my house it gets FAR more use as a couch than as a bed.
So if you made it through the video above, you saw what it looked like when we first got it. Below you will see what it looks like after 2 years of use. You can see why we decided to change the cover to black. Also in the video is their platform which FAR EXCEEDED my expectations.
Queen or Twin size, the mattress is 10″ tall . Those memory foam mattresses feature a multi-layer design for ultimate comfort and support. Made with 100% CertiPur certified ultra-dense memory foam so no harmful chemicals or latex, combined with phase-change material to actively cool the sleeping surface, so it won’t get hot like traditional memory foam. Their unique “hinged” cover allows the CouchBed to fold easily from a couch to a mattress in seconds. Durable and comfortable enough to be your every night mattress and your every day sofa. While the cover is removable for easy wash, it is recommended that you spot clean it.
Grown ups or little ones, I personally think that the CouchBed is a great and IDEAL solution for your extra guests especially that they come in Queen and Twin size.
I had a professor who used to say that if you try to do too many things at once you end up with what he called “deworseification”. I think that Couchbed suffers a bit from trying to do too much. Here is the problem:
It is too low to be a full time couch and not quite comfortable enough to be a full time bed. Personally, I love to just plop down on a couch, and this just isn’t built for an adult sized couch plop.
They currently offer the choice of the following colors:
