A sofa bed folds out flat and doesn’t include a traditional mattress. Much like a futon, a sofa bed’s cushion also serves as the couch cushion, so it can be expected to lose a certain level of support over time as it gets constant use during the day and night.
With a sleeper sofa, the mattress and bed frame fold out from inside the sofa. A sleeper sofa’s mattress will almost always be more comfortable than a sofa bed’s cushion.
Sofa beds are typically smaller than sleeper sofas, and they may only sleep one person comfortably. Sofa beds are still space savers and can be a convenient solution for a small apartment or a loft!
My sleeper sofas come in traditional bed sizes like full and queen, so you won’t have to buy any specially-sized bed sheets. Sleeper sofas also look exactly like a standard sofa, so it will be as comfortable to sit on as the sofas you already have in your home.
