How to choose the most comfortable sofa bed?
Style of Sofa Beds
There are three common styles of sofa beds on the market:
Sleeper Chair: Highlighting the most compact design to suit for small areas, like small condo, dorm room, and studio. It’s usually large enough for 2 people to sit on and 1 person to sleep comfortably.
Futon: This is considered the easiest and most practical option for small to medium living spaces. It usually features a simple look with versatile seating arrangement to be perfectly placed in offices, guest rooms, or living rooms.
Pull-out Sofa Bed: Commonly the heaviest and bulkiest style out of three but can accommodate the most number of people. It often features a queen-sized mattress which can be pulled out as a bed and a comfy seating.
When using a convertible sofa bed, one of the very first things you’re going to feel is the upholstery’s texture. The smoother and less abrasive the texture, the comfier.
If your needs are high in comfort, cotton and linen materials are the best choice because they’re both smooth and soft to touch while being cool enough to not make you hot during the summer.
On the other hand, some people prefer lux looking in their home, which results in genuine to faux leather materials are ideal. They look sleek, fashionable, and never out of style but take note that these materials probably make you sweat, especially if you’re a hot sleeper.
The standard sofa length is commonly within 5’ to 8’.
And the choice depends on two things: the available space you’ve got in the given room & the comfort you want to deliver to your guests.
If your condo has limited space and you’re willing to welcome just one guest to crash per time, a small-sized sofa bed would be nice and economic. But for those homeowners who want to enjoy the couch for entertaining or welcoming more guests, a larger-sized is worth investing.

- Add a good mattress topper or duvet
- Choose quality bedding
- Keep the mattress always clean
- Add pillows
Can you put a normal mattress on a sofa bed?
As long as that normal mattress features a folding metal frame that can fit into the couch, it’s possible to be put on there.
We promise sofa beds are really a nifty piece of furniture that anyone who loves optimizing their living space or is in a tight budget should consider.
