I'm trying to tart up our play room and change it from a general dumping ground into a more teenagery den, so I'm replacing our ancient futon with a sofa bed.

Any one got any experience to share of either ikea or next sofa beds? None of our local Next shops have sofa beds I could try out. It would mainly be used as a sofa, and only occasionally as a bed - mainly for sleepovers.

The ones I'm thinking of are:

We have the exact same IKEA sofa bed, we have had it for a number of years. It feels quite high quality and is a very comfy sofa, the bed is very quick and easy to convert. I think it is better as an occasional sleep over rather than a several night guest bed. Although we slept on it for several days when decorating our bedroom, it was comfy enough but did aggravate my pre-existing back problem.

We have a Next sofa bed. It's very comfy as both a sofa and as a bed. It's 5 years old now and still in good shape. It gets say on daily as it's our main sofa. As a bed it is used infrequently (every couple of moths for a night or two).
