A Convertible Futon with Storage Offers Multiple Advantages:

Of course, these discreet drawers come in handy for storing bedding. However, you can also keep books, remote controls and gaming devices when you’re not using them.

And who doesn’t want more storage, right? It makes cleaning up a room fast and easy.

The drawers give you an easy way to keep the room neat and clutter-free, but they also do more. They make the futon look more substantial because it appears like the seat extends to the floor.

In other words, it looks less like a futon. See what I mean in the picture below.

Matte Black Spray PaintNote: Many convertible futons have chrome legs, which tent to stand out. I have a simple fix for that. I spray paint them matte black with a paint that has primer in it.

This is a quick and cheap way to modernize the look of your furniture and make the legs stand out less. (Especially against the drawers).

And, since the legs ship unattached to the futon, you can paint them before you connect them. This simple DIY project takes about 2 minutes and costs approximately $4.

The Multi-Functional DHP Sola Futon is Easy to Use:

Plus, click-clack style futons typically weigh under 100 lbs, and the DHP only weighs 75 lbs. Therefore, you can move it easily.

For example, if you need to slide it out from a wall or push it into another room, one person can do it. The DHP Sola proves to be a very practical piece of furniture as well as multi-functional.

Don’t Overlook this Practical Sofa Sleeper’s Sleek Design

Besides the practicality of this inexpensive sofa (under $250!), the tufted microfiber upholstery gives it an upgraded look. Not to mention, the darker colors help hide dirt, so you can keep your futon looking newer longer.

In addition, the modern, contemporary shape helps this futon blend in well with virtually any style of home decor. Plus, you can switch up accessories like throw pillows or blankets over the years to keep it looking fresh.

The video below shows how this convertible futon looks in real life and how it reclines. In addition, you can see how the microfiber upholstery and storage drawers look up close.

Pros and Cons of the Sola Futon:

As you can see, this sleeper sofa has lots of functionality and style. And, you can buy it at a cheap price.

However, the sleeper bed measures less than 6 feet in length, and most people prefer to sleep on a mattress than a futon. In other words, don’t plan on using this futon as your everyday bed.

Although the upholstery material and cushioning may look great when new, don’t expect them to last as long as an $800 couch. I mean, the DHP Sola can save you some money because it costs less to build this futon in the first place.
