    I am looking to buy one a sofa bed or futon but dont know which is supposed to be better. I will use it mainly as a sofa and just open it up as a bed a couple of times a year when my brother comes up with his family.
    I dont want to spend anymore than £200.

    I was looking at these sofa beds

    a sofa bed with a spring matteress is best. I use a sofa bed in my bedroom due to having not much space in my room as all my lovely home cinema equipment, DVD's, Laserdiscs(anyone remember those), CD's, Videogames among other things take up all the space. A futon just is not comfy enough unless it has a very thick mattress its self

    I'd go for a cheap sofa, and a cheap airbed.

    Airbeds are more comfortable than sofabeds or futons, and neither sofabeds or futons tend to be comfortable to sit on, unless you spend an absolute fortune.

    Best thing is to go and try then out rather than buy on spec.

    im a futon user and dont really like sofa beds, i really thinks its down to personl taste really. i really like having a stiff mattress (back problems) and dont really think sofa beds off the same support, Rhomaish's point about a inflatable mattress is a really good idea, they take less than 2 mins to inflate and real comfortable.
