10 of the best sofa beds

Looking to transform your spare room with a sofa bed? We’ve rounded up our top 10 to help you narrow down your choice.

We have something for everyone with modern and traditional sofa beds to choose from.

What is a sofa bed?

A sofa bed serves a dual purpose. Offering a stylish, comfortable and convenient way to provide sleeping arrangements for guests when you don’t have a spare bedroom so they can sleep cosily and without taking up too much space. 

Sofa beds also offer a functional way of providing additional seating as when they’re not pulled out into a bed, they act as a traditional sofa. They’re also versatile as they allow you to use one room in many ways.

What does a sofa bed look like?

A sofa bed in its open form acts as both a sofa and a bed, giving you seating during the day, and sleeping space at night. So by day, it takes the form of a comfortable sofa and looks like an inviting place to rest by night.

There are many different sizes of sofa bed to choose from too, there are 2-4 seaters as well as chaise options to suit any style or need. 

Is a sofa bed useful? 


A sofa bed is extremely useful as you get the best of both worlds. This practical and stylish solution is especially functional for smaller homes and spaces that don’t have room for both a sofa and a guest bed, plus it can be more affordable than buying separate pieces of furniture.

It also means you’re always prepared for when any overnight guests pop over, so you won’t be caught short. The beauty of sofa beds is you can easily set them up anywhere in your home and can be easily moved around too if need be.
