The 15 Best Sofa Beds of 2022, Based on Reviews

Sofa beds (also known as a futon or day bed) can be one of the most confusing household items to buy.

Whether you’re asking your in-laws to spend the night or want a versatile and functional piece of furniture to accommodate more guests, a sofa bed is great value for money. Butit’s not quite the sectional sofa we’re all used to.

Not only are sofa beds available in a multitude of sizes, colors and shapes, but they can also replace (or add to) your air mattress, although more comfortable.

Some of our favorites are on Amazon (conveniently too, since many are now on sale ahead of the retailer’s Prime Early Access sale), although some other retailers – including Wayfair and West Elm – have an abundance of great ones available for buy online .

Before we shop our favorites, here’s the 411 on the different types of sofa beds so you know exactly what to choose:

  • futons: These types of sofa beds convert from your average sofa to a flat bed. If you have a smaller space, they’re great for giving guests the closest thing to a real mattress.
  • Nesting sofas: Uniquely, these sofa beds have a real mattress stored inside. It’s almost like a convertible crib; with the pull of a handle, it reinvents itself into a new piece of furniture, even if it requires a little more space than futons and sofa beds.
  • Sofa beds: These types of sofa beds are similar to futons, but fold up to create a bed without needing a mattress to do so. They are also super functional, as some have storage space at the bottom.

Ahead, find the best sofa beds of 2022 based on reviews and our personal buying recommendations. Whether you fancy a leather option, pull-out sofa beds, or options suitable for small spaces, we’ve featured the best of the best.
