Day Bed for a Spare Bedroom?

Avi writes:
Hi Pete,

We have a spare bedroom with an ancient sofa bed, which is only used as a sofa since the bed/mattress is horrible, and too short for me (main bed is Cal King)
We rarely have guests. We use it only when someone needs to go into “isolation” i.e. sick, or if I happen to snore too loudly for my wife to bear it.
In that case, we don’t open it to a bed, but rather sleep on top. 
However, it is way too short for me… and not very comfortable, not in my old age…
I’d love to replace it with a good bed which can be used as a sofa, something like a daybed.
However, I was not able to find any which will fit our requirements:
Twin xl mattresses are easy to find but I am looking for advice on one which can be used to sit on, i.e. strong/supportive edge, and fairly firm in general.
The bed, itself, should have tall and curved sides so that my wife can read with her feet up on the mattress, and no fabric or stuffing (other than the mattress), i.e. all wood, since my wife is allergic to dust etc, so we need something that is easy to keep clean
I found one, but it will not fit twin extra long, only a regular twin, and the sides seem too short for my wife.
Any ideas/advice, not necessarily a daybed, are there extra long queen sofa beds?
Thank you so much, Avi
Hi Avi,
Since this spare bedroom unit is used mostly for sitting, I recommend a futon.

It sits like a sofa and can sleep 2 on it.
Day Beds provide a better sleeping surface, depending on the mattress you choose, but can sleep only 1, and are way too deep to sit on comfortably.
Here is a link to the futon frames and mattresses that we carry.


Shipping is free and there’s no sales tax.

Thanks, Pete
