Now that we find ourselves in the midst of the holidays, we will likely also find ourselves in the midst of visiting friends and relatives. Let’s be honest: some of us may be dialing up the nearest hotel/motel in desperation. But others of us enjoy entertaining houseguests. Or, at the very least, don’t mind it too much.
If your home does not have a guest room, or if your guest room is also occupied, one of the best alternatives is a great sleeper sofa. There are fantastic choices out there that will not only convert into guests’ beds when necessary, but they will also offer a stylish design element year round.
Our designers at InteriorCrowd want you to know that no matter your budget, there is a great sleeper sofa out there for your living room, office, spare bedroom, or any room with some extra space!
Here are eleven lovely sofa bed examples for the smallest budget to the highest. With whichever you choose, you can easily turn any space into a functioning guest room.
Ikea really gives the customer a bang for their buck with this inexpensive, yet sleek and stylish BALKARP sofa bed. The back offers three position options: sitting, reclining, and sleeping. (Writer’s note: I have owned this exact sleeper sofa before and could not believe how comfortable it was for the inexpensive cost!)
This sleeper sofa by Serta on Wayfair offers the appeal of a traditional, stately couch while also unfolding into a queen-sized bed for guests. And it’s available in multiple colors to match your room’s design style.
Simply because you are buying a sleeper sofa does not mean it has to be boring! This fabulous convertible couch from CB2 offers a bright pop of trendy orange to your room and is created with high density foam for your guest’s comfort. Like IKEA’s sleeper sofa this couch can convert from sitting to reclining to sleeping.
This ecru sofa from Pier 1 is a simple, yet elegant and lovely couch with wooden legs, thick cushions, and rolled arms for maximum comfort. The hidden mattress becomes a queen-sized bed, which works nicely for couples.
With solid wood legs and over sixty fabric options (tweeds, prints, microfiber, linen, and more), this Heath Sleeper Sofa from West Elm is the ultimate in versatile sofas with the added bonus of a pull-out queen-sized mattress.
Outside of the traditional pull-out sleeper sofa, the Reston Queen from Crate and Barrel offers a modern take on the old-school trundle bed. The entire bottom panel of the sofa pulls out to become a twin bed option and can also be lifted up to a queen bed.
Maximizing relaxation by getting rid of any bars or springs that could cause discomfort, the Henry Deluxe by West Elm easily pulls out into a queen-sized bed with a plush-top mattress. Its performance velvet in a light gray would be a nice addition to many different room styles.
It is possible to find unique sleeper sofas, and this Butterfield by Jonathan Adler proves it. Boasting many fabric options (including velvet!) and plenty of color options for both the cushions and the sofa base, the customer can easily make the sleeper sofa a statement piece in any room.
This stylish Berin Leather Day & Night couch with a chaise lounger from Room & Board easily pulls out into a foam bed with fiber padding for optimal comfort. Available in two types of leather with multiple color options.
Boconcept’s Stockholm Sofa offers three great benefits in one. Not only is it a fashionable couch with a lounger, but the lounger also opens up into a savvy storage unit perfect for storing any bed linens and pillows. The couch can convert into either a single or a double bed.
Maybe this sofa is called the King Sleeper because it is the king of comfort. Design Within Reach enlisted designers to create a wooden platform that offers the perfect support for your pull-out mattress. It is also designed to take up less space floor space when pulled out even though it still offers the standard size sleeping space.
No matter the budget you have for a sleeper sofa, there are stylish and comfortable choices for your home this holiday season (AKA “Guest season”). A designer can help you choose the perfect sleeper sofa for your home that fits both your price range and your decor. Our designers at InteriorCrowd offer fantastic help for a reasonable price.
