Next to the sofa you can put a beautiful coffee table, preferably on wheels. That evening, it was easy to roll to the side, and disassemble the sofa. A night like this coffee table can perform the functions of bedside. The only table with an extra shelf on the bottom, it can serve as a bedside table.

Space for bed linen. As a rule, all modern model sofa-beds are already equipped with drawer for bedding. Thus, the problem of sheets is solved by itself. In those rare cases when the model sofa-beds are not equipped with special box, you can purchase a special container for clothes on wheels, and day throw him under the sofa.

In addition, linen can be removed in a special low Cabinet with a lid on it. Many companies produce these tables, they look like a side table. Well, if you made the podium – that it is possible to organize a special compartment for storing bedding.



The extra seats in the living room and bedroom it is best to use poufs and bean bags. Such items can be easily rearranged in any place.
