When it comes to buying sofa sleepers for small spaces, the following factors need to be kept in mind:

  • Size of bed: A lot of sleepers are available with a small profile but pack a queen or Full XL bed. Go for a queen-size sleeper, as a 60”x80” bed is most comfortable for visitors.
  • Number of beds: If you need a sleeper bed for one person, go for a sleeper chair and save the space in the room. Excellent options are available on our site.
  • Sofa Profile: The sofa should be appropriately sized and should not dominate the entire space. Beautiful sleepers with thin arms do this job nicely.
  • Open and close mechanisms: Nest and Easy Open mechanisms work the best and last a long time. Pull-out sofas are low-priced but don’t last a long time. Do not buy a drop-back or futon, as in small spaces you may not have space behind the sofa for the back to fall off and make a bed.
  • Budget: A good-quality, budget-friendly sofa sleeper would cost close to $2k at least.
  • Delivery options: Knockdown delivery may be needed for tight spaces. Manu sleepers come as knockdown kits that can be easily assembled; go for that instead of a preassembled sleeper and save on KD service.
  • Upholstery Fabric and color: Good-grade fabric and leather are easy to clean and maintain and last a long time. If you plan to frequently use the sleeper, think about getting an extended protection plan for it.

Also, it's important to consider the traffic flow when arranging the sofa bed in a small space. Often, people joke that a sleeper sofa beats sleeping on the floor. But that's untrue. These days, this furniture comes with thick mattresses that ensure a cozy night's sleep.

But don't worry, you need not bang your head, getting overwhelmed, looking for the right piece that fits your tiny space. We have got your back covered by diving in deep to handpick the best sleeper sofas for small spaces. Right from budget-friendly ones to bunk beds, you will definitely find a favorite on our list. Let's dive in.
