The Best Sleeper Sofas for Guests: How to Choose the Right One

When you have guests over, the last thing you want is for them to be uncomfortable. If you're not prepared, someone's going to be sleeping on the floor or making the best of your couch. That's why sleeper sofas are such a great option - they provide comfort and convenience all in one! But with so many different sleeper sofas on the market, how do you know which one is right for you? In this article, we will discuss the qualities that make a great sleeper sofa for guests, and some of our own options that will be the perfect fit.

Why should I buy a sleeper sofa?

If you're looking for sleeper sofas, then chances are good that you have guests coming over. This means comfort and convenience will be paramount to your decision-making process! The sleeper sofa is equipped with a bed inside of it, making the transition from couch time to bedtime much easier than other options like air mattresses or sleeping bags. A sleeper sofa can also be used for everyday life as well, so if you have a small space and want to make the most of it by using your sleeper sofa for seating purposes you can get two pieces of furniture in one.

Where to get sleeper sofas?

It would be so easy to just grab whatever sleeper sofa shows up on the curb. Unfortunately, sleeper sofas are some of the trickier pieces of furniture to reason with yourself picking up off the street or from some random person's house.

Here is an article written by Abe Abbas on what to consider before buying a sleeper sofa, so you can go into the process prepared. Are there mysterious stains on the mattress? Does the mattress come out correctly? Does the sofa look good in your home? Couch Potatoes has several sleeper sofa options to look through (with the mattress included).
