How to Choose a Small Sofa Bed – Buying Guide

Sofa beds come in different models. The basic feature to look for is the open-and-close mechanism that you will use in transforming it into a full-sized bed. Let us guide you on what to consider before buying a small sofa bed.

Select the Type of Sofa Bed

A sofa bed’s operating mechanism should allow you to convert the sofa into a bed and vice versa smoothly and with minimal effort. 


You should make sure that this contraption will lock the sofa and the bed frame securely to ensure safety while sitting and sleeping. Pick among these 3 types of sofa beds based on its operating mechanism. 

Sofa Bed with a Reclining Backrest

Sofa Bed with a Reclining Backrest

First is a sofa bed with a reclining backrest. This is the most budget-friendly variant and is also the most user-friendly. You only need to adjust the sofa’s backrest like the clicks of a clock. In some brands, you’ll get 2 angles for the backrest and a fully flat position for the bed. 

Pullout Couch for a Bigger Bed

Pullout Couch for a Bigger Bed

There are two subcategories of a pullout couch. One is where you’ll get a separate mattress that is tucked underneath the foam of the sofa. Just remove the seat cushions and use the handle of the folded-up bed to pull its frame towards you.


Meanwhile, the other type of a pullout couch is a sofa bed where you’ll be using the same cushions of the sofa. To create the shape of a full bed, you just need to flatten the backrest and then pull out the bottom portion of the sofa. This allows you to lift up the extra cushion that is hidden below the seat cushion.

Tri-fold Sofa Bed for a Slim Look

A tri-fold sofa bed is the most space-saving variant. It features a foam mattress with three folds – the first fold serves as the backrest, the second fold as the base, and the third fold as the sofa cushion. To convert it to a bed, unfold the foam and have all the 3 folds lay flat on the floor. Simply fold it back to change it into a sofa.

Check the Sofa Size and Dimensions

Check the Sofa Size and Dimensions

A small sofa bed should have a width that ranges from 100 to 200 cm. This will allow you to place it inside a studio-type apartment and other small-space rooms. 


Before making your purchase, measure the available space, and see if the sofa bed fits your room when it is fully opened as a bed. Also, check whether it transforms into a single or a double-sized bed.


Estimate your entryways as well to make sure that you can get the sofa bed into the hallways, stairs, and around the corners of your room. 

Pick the Material of Its Legs and Upholstery

Pick the Material of Its Legs and Upholstery

There are three items to consider when it comes to a sofa bed’s material – the legs or frame, the fabric, and the foam. First, check whether the legs and frame are stable or not. Pick a sturdy material like steel and hardwood to ensure that it can take the wear-and-tear of converting your sofa into its bed position.


Second, look into the type of fabric used in the upholstery. Smooth cotton fabric is the most recommendable for households with children and pets – this type of fabric is comfortable and also easy to clean. Polyester, microfiber blends, and corduroys are also good options because these are durable.


Third, select a sofa bed with a foam filling because it is firmer, provides maximum support, and is more comfortable. A foam filling will also retain the sofa bed’s shape and is easy to maintain. Make sure that the foam is thick enough to support your back once converted into a bed mattress. 

Find the Right Color

Find the Right Color

Go for a lighter shade or color because it is more fade resistant and will make a small space feel bigger. You can also easily spot dust, dirt, or pet hairs, which is ideal if you have sensitive skin or allergies. This type of sofa bed is high maintenance; thus it is more recommended to homeowners who have time to clean it more frequently.


If you prefer a darker shade, go for a gray or taupe sofa bed. These are the perfect middle ground and will blend nicely with most color palettes. These are also dark enough to hide permanent stains. Patterned sofa beds, meanwhile, are also good at concealing unwanted spills. 

Consider a Sofa Bed with Legs or Feet and Low Arms for a Lighter Look

Consider a Sofa Bed with Legs or Feet and Low Arms for a Lighter Look

Since sofa beds with legs or feet are lifted off the floor, they give a room an airy feel. It’s an effective way of making a small space look more open because the sofa bed appears more lightweight.


Also, consider a sofa bed with low and narrow arms. This way, your sofa bed is less restricting and doesn’t feel boxy. It also allows more space for sitting and comfortable sleeping positions. Some sofa beds don’t have arms at all, which means that your view of the rest of the room will not be blocked when you’re lying down.
