What to Consider when Selecting Sofa Beds

Sleeper Sofas

Play With Colors and Fabrics

When choosing sleeper furniture to accent your home decor, you want to pay attention to both color and fabric choices. For instance, couches with upholstery in smooth mono-toned fabrics might contrast nicely with blended, textured plaid-rattan-ish furniture. A bright pop of red in a sleeper couch, might pair nicely with other room furniture that is all monochromatic neutral colors such as gray, brown, black, or white. Bright oranges, reds, and blues are all the rage right now when one is seeking an accent piece. Be in your color selection and you’ll continue to be experience joy in your living space for years and years to come – and it will never look drab.


Knowing whether the sleeper sofa will be used primarily for sitting or sleeping/ lounging is also important. Why? Well, you want to make certain that cushions are comfortable enough for you and your guests to sit and visit or watch movies for hours comfortably for entertaining—and you want to make sure the couch turns into a very comfy bed if you are going to be sleeping on it often.


There are different types of convertible couches available—one type is the fold-out kind of sleeper sofa, in which the sofa folds out into a bed by either leaning the headboard back or pulling the seat a big forward. The other is a trundle-type sofa, where the bed pulls out from underneath the sofa.

This sleeper sofa is hugely popular with both apartment owners and homeowners who want both a couch and a great place to lie down and chill after a long day at work or home. These sleeper-couches are a fantastic alternative to guest bedrooms, since friends can sleep on these comfortably for a night to a week.

Many sofa furniture companies offer you modernity and cool but at the price of comfort, because often the mattress in the sleeper sofa is very thin or uncomfortable. Not with these models, however. The 25 convertible couches I’ve chosen to showcase to you offer both comfort and style like crazy. If you want a statement piece that provides both beauty and comfort, one you can actually use to for sitting, visiting with friends, or lying down or sleeping in comfort either alone or with your S.O., these are the sofas you want.
