You probably have encountered the problem of lack of space in your home.  Having a small bedroom where you cannot fit both the bed and other items, or not having a guest room can be very annoying.

Sometimes students are forced to rent suites that have only one room and have to use it as a living room, study room and bedroom at the same time. Of course, these problems are not unsolvable at all, and our suggestion for people with such problems is a sofa bed or a folding bed. But first of all, we must pay attention to the features of these two models of furniture and in fact what is the difference between a sofa bed and a folding bed.


On July 18, 1899, Leonard C. Bailey obtained the right to build the first “folding bed.” The metal frame of the bed was foldable and the mattress could be bent and closed if necessary. This is the same bed that was later called the secret bed.

Or you may be a student and live in a small suite that has only one room and you have to use that room as a living room, bedroom and study

But folding bed is a bed whose main use is a bed. This type of bed is retractable and has different types.

In fact, the main difference between a sofa bed and a folding bed is their first use. This means that the sofa bed is originally a sofa and can also be used as a bed. But the main use of a folding bed is for sleeping, and it can be folded when there is a lack of space. But in the retractable mode, it will not always be used as a sofa.
