What to look for in a sofa bed?

There are five main things to consider when you are choosing a sofa bed; budget, size, style, fabric and colour.

The first of these, budget, is your key starting point and the good news is that you don’t have to spend a lot to get a high quality product. As always, our product round-up below contains products across a broad price range so no matter how much you have to spend you can be sure to find something to suit you.

The next thing you need to think about is size. There are sofa beds available in single and double size, along with two seaters, three seaters and corner sofas. Before making any choices it’s important to measure the space you have available and check this against the dimensions of your chosen item.

You want to make sure the sofa bed will fit where you want it to go. There would be nothing worse on delivery day than finding your new item won’t fit through the door - or overwhelms your space. We’ve got products of various sizes below.

The final choices to make is what style of sofa you want, and what fabric type and colour you’d like. All of these are personal choices, of course, but you may want to think about what will best compliment any exisitng decor choices and who will be likely to use the sofa bed. A Chesterfield, for example, is a timeless design most suited for fans of classic styles, but there are more modern styles available too. A velvet choice is luxurious for a couple, but a leather sofa which will wipe clean easily may be more forgiving in family homes with children or pets.

Once you’ve made all of those choices, it’s time to start shopping around to find your perfect sofa bed. We’ve rounded up 12 of the best below.
