What should you look for in a sofa bed?

There are five main aspects to consider when choosing a sofa bed; Budget, size, style, fabric and color.

The first of these, budget, is your main starting point, and the good news is that you don’t have to spend a lot to get a quality product. As always, our product summary below features products across a wide price range, so no matter how much you have to spend, you’re sure to find something that suits you.

The next thing to think about is the size. There are single and double-size sofa beds, as well as two-seaters, three-seaters and corner sofas. Before making a choice, it is important to measure the space available and compare it to the dimensions of the item you have chosen. You want to make sure the sofa bed fits where you want it. On delivery day, there’s nothing worse than finding that your new item won’t fit through the door – or overwhelms your space. We have different size products below.

The final decision you need to make is what style of sofa you want and what type of fabric and color you want. All of these are personal choices, of course, but you should think about what would go best with an existing decor choice and who is likely to be using the sofa bed. A Chesterfield, for example, is a timeless design that’s best suited for fans of classic styles, but there are also more modern styles. A velvet choice is luxurious for a couple, but a leather sofa that’s easy to wipe down can be more forgiving in family homes with children or pets.

Once you’ve made all those decisions, it’s time to look around to find your perfect sofa bed. We’ve rounded up 12 of the best below.
