Benefits of Sofa Beds


The ideal guest bed or hide-a-bed solution

If you’re short on space, or you need a place for an occasional guest to sleep, the multi-functional sofa bed is the ideal solution.  A sleeper sofa looks like a standard couch, but converts easily to a bed in seconds.


Sofa bed convertibles make a perfect addition to the modern living room or bedroom.   Many modern sofa beds have three position options; sofa, bed, and recliner.  Sofa sleeper styles are available with full, queen, or king size beds, so you can choose the size that fits your space and lifestyle.  Sleeper sofa styles include: Hardwood, Designer, Living, Bedroom, Platform, & Daybeds


Hardwood sofa beds are designed to take full advantage of the beauty and durability of solid hardwood.  Premium construction from tropical hardwoods and select laminates will give you many years of use.  When you take the pillows off the back of a hardwood sofa sleeper with a slatted wood design, it looks like a traditional headboard.  This style makes an ideal addition to a guest bedroom.


Casual style with soft, inviting shapes are hallmarks of sofa beds made for the living room.   Generous loose pillows can be arranged for maximum comfort.  You can get slipcovers designed to remove for easy cleaning or choose from a wide array of fabrics and colors.  Popular sleeper sofa fabrics include: Twill, Linen, Chenille, Suede, Leather


Because of their classic look and durability, leather sleeper sofas are a popular choice.  The cushiony softness of leather ensures maximum comfort.  Leather sofa sleepers also come in a variety of color choices. See our Guide on cleaning leather sofas.


When you’re shopping for sleeper sofas, check to see what is included in the price.  Many sleeper sofas are priced complete with the mattress, washable covers, and pillows.

Also, make sure the couch is comfortable with thick, high density foam seat and back cushions.  A thicker mattress will result in a more comfortable bed.
