The holidays are just around the corner and soon, you may find yourself entertaining family and friends who are visiting from out of town. What a great opportunity to catch up on lost time and have your guests spend the night once those festivities end!
It is no surprise that we are living smaller these days. Most of us are opting for multi-functional and versatile furniture to use in our condensed spaces. You also do not need a spare bedroom to host your overnight guests because there is nothing wrong with having guests sleep over in your living room, den or office — just so long as you make them comfortable there! A simple mix of innovative space management and furniture choice will help you accommodate everyone, at a very manageable budget.
A sofa bed (or sleeper sofa) is a great investment if you regularly entertain but do not have an extra bedroom. Considered a staple in any home, the sleeper allows you to have guests in a small space or convert a guest room into an office during the day. Where once sleeping on a sleeper sofa meant a bad night’s sleep and an aching back, the technology has since vastly improved.
Shopping for a sleeper sofa is more than just about picking a look you like. That’s because there are several types of mattresses and configurations and each one can affect sleeping comfort, sitting surface and space planning.
So, how do you go about choosing one?

A sleeper sofa is a wonderful addition to your home, providing multi-functional use and allowing for the best use of space, especially when scaling down. Also, remember to measure before you shop and consider the size of the sleeper when it’s fully open. You don’t want to invest in a sofa that does not fit anywhere in your home, so don’t forget your measuring tape!
