Kids' Fold Out Sleeper Sofas



Kids' Flip Out/Fold Down Spiderman Sofa

Flip Out Decor: Fold Down Sleeper Sofas for Kids


Kids' fold-out foam sleeper sofas  like these. From Spiderman, to Disney princess and chevron flip down sofas, I've included budget~friendly decorating tips, and even the busiest of us moms and dads can create a cozy nook in no time.

My kids loved their own made~for~them fun character furniture. But the lightweight foam sofas were just the furniture piece I needed as a temporary sleeping solution for my toddler twins when moving them into "big kid" beds. (Well, that was some sentence!) Later, as my boys got older, the flip outs were great for sleep overs. Not to mention, they


 were lightweight and were a real plus for visiting guests who spent the night.
 The portability of these sofas~turned~beds has to be the most convenient boon of all but they do make great additions to your child's bedroom decor and I'll show you how!





Balancing Your Decor with Girls' Flip Sofas

Little girls do love pink, which makes decorating easy, as it's among the most color~friendly to work with. Bathe your girls' walls any pink shade and add "pink~o~plenty" in bedding, wall decor and accessories.
The key is to use a balance of solids with prints to avoid a busy look ~ not what you want when bedtime rolls around. 

These fun fold out sleeper sofas have popular Dora, Disney Princess and Lalaloopsy themes that will fit right in to your toddler's penchant for pink decor. Go ahead, add the pink and enjoy the added seating with these too~cute fold out sofas.





Super Hero Fold Out Sleeper Sofas


If you're looking for a superhero flip out (or down) foam sofa like the Batman or Spiderman sofas I've shown, but these are just not 'the ones,' you can click on any of the links (under the pictures) and see lots of others that might be 'just the right one.'

Painting a Superhero Bedroom for Your Batman Fold Out Sleeper Sofas

The superhero themed flip out sofas are a favorite with even the littlest boys. One of my twins was a bit frightened by some of the facial expressions and poses of characters, so I made sure to have his feedback before I introduced anything into the boys’ bedroom.
These fold out sofas passed the “test” and I proceeded (though cautiously) by painting the room in a mix of yellow and blue, with the focal wall being blue and the side walls yellow. Don’t be afraid to alternate wall colors; it’s a fun way to add interest.







Fun Flower Fold Down Sleeper Sofa for Toddler & Little Girls






Keeping Your Sofa's Busy Patterns in Check: fabulously-fun flowers



Kids' Fold Out Flower Print Foam Sofa for Toddlers and Girls



Aren't these flowers adorable? This sweet flip out sofa is ideal for a focal wall where it will capture the eye quite readily. 

But like any busy print, you'll need to keep a close check on how many like patterns you use in one space.

I suggest keeping a 3:1 ratio on patterns, where you'll use three plain pieces to every busy piece. With this balance you won't overwhelm your space, making for a room that's hardly a quiet retreat come bedtime. Not good when you're trying to quiet wide-awake children.

Choosing Just the Right Themed Sofa: Disney Cars 

Little kids will be super excited about these just~for~them Cars sleeper sofas by Disney. I'm not one to assign a gender to decor; it's all about what a child wants.
If your girl loves the boyish decor, go ahead and let her pick. There's really no "rule" on design and the most colorful of kids' products tend to be geared toward boys. 


Decorating is about designing for our "self" so go with what makes your child happy. With the bright colors and popular theme designs on these sofas, both girls and boys'll flip.






Kids' Lightweight Foam Sofas Offer Portability

Ideal for that 'wherever, whenever' nap that suddenly happens when we moms and dads least expect it.
Don't be surprised if your toddler literally 'pulls up a chair,' bringing the sofa to you; mine sure did!









The Shape of Things to Come: Straight or Rounded Back Sleeper Sofa?

 You may want to keep to a linear arrangement if you plan to place your sofa at the foot of your toddler's bed.
Conversely, a rounded back will do nicely if you want to break up harsh lines from boxy furniture pieces. 

Take a quick peek in your proposed room--what impression do you get? If you notice a rigid appearance with your furniture, opt for a curved back to soften the lines.
