Sleeper sofas are one of the most practical dual-functioning pieces of furniture you can buy whether you live in a studio loft or a house where the office, playroom or theater room needs to double as a guest space. Historically boxy and not always attractive, sleeper sofas and sofa beds have thankfully come a long way in terms of providing versatility and style. Browse some of our favorite top-rated options on the market, and check out our tips for what to consider when purchasing a sleeper sofa.

What to Consider When Shopping for a Sleeper Sofa

Bed vs Sofa: Consider the primary purpose of the sofa. Will it serve as your only set up for overnight guests who visit frequently? Then you might want to prioritize the comfort of the bed configuration and opt for a pullout style. But if it will primarily serve as a sofa just with the added bonus of accommodating an additional overnight guest or two a couple of times a year, then you may not need the most comfortable bed and can weigh the price, style and size more heavily.

Size: Many sleeper sofas tend to be heavier, particularly the pullout styles with metal frames that add extra weight. If you anticipate moving it frequently, you may want to go for a smaller option like a futon. Also be sure to measure your space for not just the sofa frame, but also the measurements for the fully-extended bed.

Converter Type: From sleeper sofas with pullout systems to sofa beds that simply fold down flat, consider how easy the sofa can transition from regular seating to a bed for overnight guests. If you intend to use the sleeper in an Airbnb rental with frequent guests, for example, you might want to go for the simpler-to-convert option.

How to Make a Sleeper Sofa More Comfortable: If you decide to purchase a lighter sofa or futon but are concerned about sacrificing a more comfortable mattress, consider the option to buy a mattress topper that can provide extra cushion.

A fold-down futon is typically the most affordable (and lighter) option for sleeper sofas, but there are plenty to choose from that are way better than your college dorm futon. We're obsessed with the channel-tufted linen upholstery and affordable price point of this top-selling futon from Novogratz. It’s available in classic color choices like dark gray, gray and navy, as well as bold-but-tasteful colors like mustard, green and light blue. A sectional futon option comes in light gray, green or navy that folds down the same way. If you're looking for a pullout couch but in a similar style, Novogratz also sells a queen sofa bed with a memory foam mattress.
