Our Top Picks for Sleeper Sofas and Pullout Couches

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

Size: Many sleeper sofas are heavier than a typical sofa, particularly the pullout styles with metal frames. If you anticipate needing to move it frequently, you may want to go for a smaller and lighter option like a fold-down, futon-style sofa bed. Be sure to measure your space for the dimensions of both the sofa configuration as well as the fully extended bed configuration before purchasing.

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're shopping for a small apartment or dorm, for example, where you don't have a lot of space to rearrange furniture, you may want to choose a futon-style or twin-size sleeper. Fold-down converters are the fastest to convert and usually take up less space, but they aren't usually as soft as a pullout sofa with an innerspring or memory foam mattress.

Bed vs Sofa: Consider the primary purpose of the sofa. Will it serve as your only setup 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.

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.

What We Like
  1. Down-alternative pillows are included
  2. Instead of a mattress, it has three layers of foam right in the couch's surface
What We Don't Like
  1. At just under $2,000, it's a bit of a splurge
  2. Currently only comes in two colors

This Shift Sleeper Sofa by Burrow pulls out to a queen-sized sleeping space, but unlike traditional sofa beds, it swaps out a traditional mattress with three layers of cushioning right on the surface of the couch. That means you don't need any special bedding, and the therapeutic (and cooling) memory foam is just as comfortable as your bed at home. Because there's no mattress, it's easy to turn into a bed in seconds: Just remove the back cushions and fold the couch down flat. Plus, the arm cushions work as down alternative pillows, too. All you need to do is to cover them with a pillowcase. Another bonus? The couch is easy to assemble out of the box, and it's made with stain-resistant fabric.

  1. Sofa Dimensions 84” L x 32.5” W x 33.5” H
  2. Bed Size Queen
What We Like
  1. It's an affordable option at under $225
  2. It comes in lots of unique colorways and fabrics, including faux leather
What We Don't Like
  1. It's a futon, so it's not made for long-term guests
  2. Only sleeps one person

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.

  1. Sofa Dimensions 81.5" D x 34.5" W x 31.5" H
  2. Bed Size Sleeps One
What We Like

What We Don't Like

Perfect for spontaneous sleepovers or a quick nap, this streamlined, casual couch goes from a comfortable two-seater sofa to a full-sized bed in a snap.

The spring mattress makes for a night of sleep as comfortable as it would be on a hotel bed, and it comes in three different colorways. Another benefit is its free white glove delivery and fast shipping.

It's relatively low slung, which means it has a deep, comfy seat that sits closer to the ground, low padded arms and a sink-right-in quality. Inside, there's a gel foam mattress that's definitely a level up in comfort than others in the space: it has high-gauge springs, high-density foam and is made with moisture-wicking properties. It's also made-to-order in the USA, and comes in a number of different velvet color options (and other fabrics as well!)

What We Don't Like
  1. Trundle beds don't have traditional mattresses

This Bedford sofa from Crate & Barrel offers a clean look and effortless style with a handy trundle mattress disguised as a front rail. To accommodate overnight guests, simply pull out the rail for a lower trundle bed or pull it out further until it pops into place as a queen-size bed. Made of high-density and -resiliency foam, the mattress ensures a comfy rest. Bonus for dwellers of apartments or older homes: The trundle portion can be disassembled to ensure the sofa can fit through narrower door frames when moving.

  2. Bed Size Queen
What We Like
  1. Comes in 10 shades of leather
  2. Made with high-quality materials, including top-grade leather and soy-based polyfoam
What We Don't Like
  1. Since it is made-to-order, it takes over a month to ship
  2. This type of leather needs significant attention and care to keep it looking like new

If you won't settle for anything other than high-quality, genuine leather, this top grade, full-aniline (which means that its dye penetrates throughout the thickness of the material, not just the surface) dyed leather option from Crate & Barrel is a gorgeous fit. Inside, the bi-fold innerspring full-sized mattress comes with a quilted top pad, and features an anti-tip safety lock. Its low-back cushions are fiber-filled and easy to get comfortable on, and the seat cushions are made with soy polyfoam. As for delivery, for a flat rate, you can get white glove service, making it almost no work for the consumer to set up.
