Recommendations

It is simple, and then there is Giantex 5 simple. Its kind of an oxymoron, since its simplicity, is genius and as such defies simplicity. I confuse myself sometimes, so I will just state that this is the one to buy if you are in a dilemma between models.

Conclusions

Foldable sleeper chairs are amazing products; the one I presented to you are the best in their categories when considering small things such as reliability of design, ruggedness of materials, easy to maintain and clean, as well as durability of the framework and the opening and closing process.

When you look for a sleeper chair, consider the surface it will sit upon, the dimensions you are constrained into and the person that will use it. In general, consider a model that will fit into the design of your home, can be used by many, and is easy and lightweight enough to be mobile, but rugged and solid enough to be reliable.

Final thoughts consider the price as a very important base for your decision. These products tend to wear out very quickly, even when made of the best materials. They are also not really meant to replace a bed fully, and as such are for one nighter more than constant use. Consider buying one where you can replace the upholstery, sometimes a quick change of the upholstery is enough to provide a new looking sleeper chair that can last a lifetime.
