How to Take Sofa Cum Bed Dimensions
When you look at a convertible sofa bed with its foldable mattress, it might seem confusing at first as to where to begin with the measurements. Refer to the image below for a clearer picture. In the image below, you are seeing the dimensions of the Comfort Zila Sofa cum Bed, available exclusively with Fresh Up Mattress.
When measuring the width, measure externally from arm to arm of the sofa. This will ensure that you are measuring the width between the 2 farthest points of the sofa.
When measuring the height, walk to the back of the sofa. And then take the measurements from the highest point right down to where the sofa touches the floor.
Measure the length of the foot of the sofa by starting from any point where the sofa touches the floor and going straight up, to the outer edge of the sofa pillows. Next, measure the sofa seat by placing one end of the tape at the outer edge of the sofa cushion/sofa pillow, and the other end of the tape on the inner edge. This should cover the entire extent of the sofa pillows. Lastly, measure the back of the sofa, by placing one end of the tape on the inner edge of the sofa cushions and the other edge at the highest point of the back of the sofa. Adding all the 3 measurements should give you an accurate measure of the length of your foldable mattress bed.
