Sleeper sofas & futons
Solving two needs at once to save you space and money, our sleeper sofas, couch beds and futons never rest – they leave that up to you or your guests. IKEA’s collection features a variety of styles and colors, with options like pull-out beds, small futons and corner sofa armchairs. Many models even include built-in storage for bed linens as well, for an even greater space saving solution.
Sleeper sofas 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 futon, couch bed or sleeper sectional for your home.
Room size and space
When choosing a sleeper sofa, you need to consider how many seats you need and what will fit in your home.
Do you need to fit a big family or group of friends on your sofa? In that case, maybe a corner, or a big 3-seater couch bed might be a good option. If you lack space in your home, you might want to look at a sleeper loveseat or a small corner futon. If your space is very limited, we also offer a selection of single chair beds as well.
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 sleeper sofa, since the backrest is pushed back and flattened. You can also choose a pull-out couch 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 sleeper sofas
If your space is limited, fitting both a sofa and a bed in your room could be difficult. In those cases, a bedroom sleeper sofa 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 convertible couch 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.
