If you don’t have a guest room in your home but have guests that you need to host in your home for a few nights, then you should consider purchasing a sleeper sofa, or sofa bed! Now is a great time to prepare your home as the holidays are coming up quickly.
Now I know you might be thinking of your college days when sleeping on an uncomfortable futon was considered normal to some, but don’t worry – sofa beds have come a long way since then!
Shopping for sleeper sofas can be challenging because you need to consider two entirely different purposes for the one piece of furniture. On the one hand, the sofa needs to be comfortable to sit on, especially if you’re planning to use it as the main sofa in your living room. Secondly, you want the pull-out sofa bed to be comfortable as well for any guests you may have into your home.
A sleeper sofa that fits all the above criteria, not to mention goes well with your style and fits in your budget isn’t easy. We’ve put together a short guide to buying the best sleeper sofa for your home. Take a look at our recommendations for the best sofa bed:

I love this minimalist sofa bed in a light grey tone from CB2. It was designed with ease of use in mind, and contrary to most pull-out sofa beds, does not need to be moved away from the wall to unfold. You simply pull out the bottom and then fold down the back. Brilliant !
By day it’s your everyday sectional sofa, but by night it’s a double bed! I love the ingenuity of this awesome sleeper sofa which uses the chaise lounge part as storage. Simply flip up the chaise part of the sofa and pull out the sheets and pillows for your guests. The main sitting part of the sofa will turn into a bed at your convenience!
