Sofa-beds

We love furniture that does double duty. Especially for homes big on cosy but small on space. With a variety of styles and options like pull-out beds, futons, and built-in storage, our sleeper sofas ensure that you can have the lounge area you deserve and the second bedroom you sometimes need. For more options, why not browse our full range of sofas by style.

You can get a helping hand to assemble your new bed with our assembly service.

Sofa-beds that aren’t either or – but both

While some are ideal for occasional use, the ones that are folded out every night are true household heroes. That’s why we have models like GRÖNLID and VIMLE sofa-beds, offering the same level of comfort as you can expect from a bed. So you can sleep soundly, knowing that neither bed nor sofa is a compromise.

The easy way to transform a room

As if sofa-beds aren’t clever enough to begin with, IKEA also has them in styles, sizes, colours and comfort levels to let you repurpose a space at will – living room to bedroom, cosy corner to guest space, day to night.

The disappearing-bedding trick (watch the cushion)

You almost can’t have too many cushions – but if you have a FRIHETEN sofa-bed, there’s one in particular you don’t want to miss. KLAGSHAMN back cushion lets you swiftly zip your night-time mattress into cushy daytime comfort.

Sofa beds do two, or sometimes even three, jobs at once – never resting – while letting you or your guests do just that! With a versatile sofa bed, you have a place to lounge and relax by day and a convenient, space efficient sleeping area by night. Some models also come with built in storage, making it an incredibly efficient piece furniture.

Here are a few tips on how to choose the right sofa bed for your home.

Size and space

When choosing a sofa bed, you need to consider what size sofa you need and what will fit in your home.

Do you need to fit a big family or group of friends in your sofa? In that case, maybe a corner, or a big 3-seater sofa bed might be a good option. If you lack space in your home, you might want to look at a 2-seater or a small corner sofa bed. If your space is very limited, we also offer a selection of single sofa bed chairs.

Measure for both sofa and bed

Remember that the mechanism of turning your sofa into a guest bed means it will take up extra space. For example, a foldout sofa bed requires free space in front of the sofa, or at least space that can easily be cleared. A clic clac mechanism requires free space behind the sofa, since the backrest is pushed back and flattened. You can also choose a pull-out sofa bed or futon that will require free space in front of the sofa, just like the foldout.

If you’re short on space, storing spare bed linen might be a challenge. When that’s the case, a sofa bed with built in storage is a great solution. And remember, if you need some extra bed linen that matches your style – we’ve got you covered for that too!

Comfortable sofa beds

If your space is limited, fitting both a sofa and a bed in your room could be difficult. In those cases, a sofa bed could be the solution you need. Just remember, if your sofa bed is going to be your primary bed, comfort will be essential.

Luckily, we offer sofa beds that let you use a futon mattress – so you can get just the sleeping conditions you like. Choose the firmness, softness and support of your mattress just like you’d do with any regular bed.
