Think about exactly what you need the futon sofa bed. If it is only for occasional use at night when you have guests, and usually will remain in an upright position, then probably you will be served by a cheap futon.
If, however, you'll use it regularly as a sofa and as a bed, it will be much more profitable to spend a little more money and buy something that lasts longer. Preferably choose one that has an extensive warranty, so if it is broken you will be covered.

Of course, you also need to consider the size of the space you're going to put it; in this case, a smaller size may be more convenient. And do not forget to make sure you have space in the room to open the futon!

The dark wood highlights not only dust but every little scratch, so if you choose wooden furniture, opt for a lighter color. Light rustic furniture are cheap and cheerful, as well as surprisingly elegant and almost indestructible.

Dining room furniture materials

Of course, wood is not the only option. Another option of robust dining furniture material is chromium, or table with metal frame and lid ceramic and vinyl upholstered chairs. The glass tables are suitable for a couple with no children, but are not recommended for a family.

How many times chairs will be dragged for sitting, scraping the floor area dining? By answering this you will know what kind of chair legs are better (metal, wood, plastic) and if you must put a rug to protect floors.

Do members of your family are particularly tall or short? The dining sets come in a variety of heights, so you probably want to opt for something in between that makes everyone feel comfortable, even the guests.
How many people sit daily at the table? If you only occasionally have guests, consider buying an adjustable dining room table that can be extended when needed, and save yourself extra space.
