Which is the best Sofa Bed for you?
A sofa bed is a super useful thing to have, and whilst it may be not be used as your main sofa in the living room, a sofa bed its the perfect item for a study or spare room.
That way you have a comfortable sofa to use all year round, for reading or relaxing on. But then should you have guests to stay, you have the perfect solution.
If you’re the sort of person who only has people over to stay once in a blue moon, then you might be better off just blowing up an air bed for the odd occasion.
However, if you’re sick of pumping up an airbed or trying to make a poor attempt at a bed on the floor out of every cushion and blanket in the house for your guests, the a sofa bed may be the way forward for you.
Sofa beds are way cooler than they used to be and are now designed to be an attractive feature of the room, just like your regular sofa would be.
Here is a round up of some of the best sofa beds we found when looking for one for the spare bedroom:
Unmatchable 3 Seat Faux Leather Sofa Bed
The unmatchable sofa bed features a faux leather finish, giving the appearance of a regular leather sofa.
Its style and size would make it suited to any medium sized spare bedroom. On first glance you may not even realise it was a sofa bed!
It features recline positions so you don’t have to have it completely up as a sofa or down as a bed – ideal for chilling out.
5 Position Folding Sleeper Chair
This fantastic space-saver is ideal for those who have a small sized spare bedroom, want to have guests around to sleep but don’t want to fill the room up with a larger sofa.
The sleeper chair can sit nicely at a desk or in the corner of a room and then conveniently becomes a 1-person bed when folded down.
It is very comfortable as a regular chair so serves two great purposes if you need an office chair and an extra place for friends or family to sleep.
Chesterfield Style Sofa Bed
Available in both 2 or 3 seater, this Chesterfield Sofa Bed looks amazing and you wouldn’t even know it was a bed as well!
This is ideal for larger spare rooms. It could also be used in a living room as a conventional sofa and used to sleep guests on the odd occasion. Perfect for those without space to have others sleeping in spare rooms, offering the living room out instead.

It will comfortably fit two people on the pull out bed which is made of a good quality foam for comfort.
We love that the chaise piece can be switched from the left to the right side. So if you want to change your room around you can.
The Madden sofa bed is the most expensive sofa bed in our review, but still won’t break the bank.
