Therefore, when buying it is necessary to check whether it is safe, whether it is really simple and convenient to use.
There are other nuances. So, some types of folding mechanism are suitable for those who are passionate about games, and others - for those who are mostly sleeping on the couch. The stability of the sofas in the shape of the letter G is unparalleled, but still it is worth carefully studying the features of each model.

The sofas decorated with floral motifs and also decorated with images of animals will perfectly fit into it. As an addition, shelves and wicker baskets are widely used. Of course, you can prefer a completely original solution.
When the inhabitants of the nursery are of both sexes, it is advisable to choose animalistic motifs and other universal subjects. When selecting a sofa equipped with retractable storage compartments, it is necessary to clarify whether they are equipped with finger protection. Adequate safety is provided by soft armrests. It is very important that there are no parts leaving the contour.

The European “book” and the “click-klyak” format are laid out without the use of the lower parts, so these versions should be chosen in rooms with particularly fragile floors.
