If you're like us, you've got friends and family who don't live in the same city, and when they come into town, they want to stay with you. However, not all of us are blessed with extra bedrooms, and that's where a comfy sofa bed comes in. But don't be alarmed; these are not the sofa beds you grew up with. Not only are they good looking these days, but they're also comfortable. Yes, it's possible. There are sectional sofas, velvet sofas, and even sofas with memory-foam mattresses. There's really no reason not to have a sleeper sofa in your living room, den, or kids' playroom. Once your friends and family try it out, they'll be blown away, but be warned, this may make them want to come and visit more often.
What to Look For When Buying a Sleeper Sofa
There are lots of key factors to consider when investing in furniture, most notably size, fabric, style, function, and cost. Where do you plan on putting this sofa, and who do you envision will be using it, for sitting or sleeping? Does it need to fit into a small space, or is it better for the couch to be large enough to sleep multiple people? Do you like the look of fabric, or are you more of a leather lover? Do you have kids or pets? There's truly something for every home, and ahead, we've found six of the best options. Our top choice is the West Elm Shelter Sleeper Sectional With Storage ($3,698-$4,648), but there's something that everyone will love. To help you find the right one for your space, here's a detailed guide for everything you need to know about how to buy a couch, according to experts.
