The bed in the bedroom and the sofa in the living room are the two most used pieces of furniture in your home. Those who have to deal with limited space will generally choose the bed over the sofa to furnish their interiors. Sofa beds are a nice way around this problem because as the name suggests, they can be converted either to a sofa for the day time or a comfortable bed for night time. Considering a sofa bed for furnishing your small bedroom or for your living room when you have unexpected guests to sleepover is a smart space saving idea.
Sofa beds are both practical and versatile and there are a large number from which to choose. Whether you prefer an L-shape to fit a corner, a bunk bed sofa bed for a small children’s bedroom or a 3-seater sofa bed for furnishing a large room, there is a sofa bed that suits nearly every purpose.
We have put together the most original shapes and cool sofa bed designs for you to get some ideas when it comes to deciding on the best sofa beds for your needs.
