Sleeper sofas are the absolute best bang for your buck. And now there are more incredible options to choose from than ever before. Apt2B is proud to offer the best sleeper sofas, sleeper sectionals, and sofa beds on the market. But which style of convertible sofa bed is best for you? Our ultimate sleeper sofa guide has all the answers you need!
How Will You Use Your Sleeper Sofa?
The first step to consider for buying the best sofa bed is to determine how you will be using it. Will this be the main sofa in your home? Will it be stored down in the basement for spillover guests at Thanksgiving? Are you transforming your college-bound child’s room into a much better, guest bedroom? Knowing this information will help you figure out the right size. If the sleeper sofa is going to be the main family sofa then you should consider getting a sleeper sectional. These sofas are big enough for the whole family but they have a sleeper mattress hidden inside. If you don’t need a big sofa bed then you can choose a smaller option like one of our Queen Size sleeper sofas, Full Size sleepers, or our new Twin Size sleepers! These are perfect for a smaller space.

Choose The Right Sleeper Mattress
Apt2B offers two types of sleeper mattresses: a 5.5″ Deluxe Innerspring Mattress with Pillow Top or a Memory Foam Mattress. How often you use your sofa bed is the best way to determine which mattress to choose. Will you only use it once or twice per year? Or are you running an airbnb and need a sofa bed that will hold up to excessive use? Our Deluxe Innerspring Mattress is perfect for an occasional guest. Our Memory Foam is ideal for long term guests or frequent use.
Deluxe Innerspring Mattress: Soft and comfy. Perfect for people who only plan on using their sleeper mattress sparingly for the occasional guest.
Memory Foam Mattress: Firm and extra durable. Great for people who will use their sleeper sofas frequently or who intend to have long-term guests.

Sofa Bed vs. Urban Sofa Bed
Urban sofa beds (aka futons, aka click clacks, aka convertible sofas) are a very unique product. Is it smarter to choose a sleeper sofa or an urban sofa bed? The main difference is that a standard sofa bed requires more room to function. The entire sleeper mattress has to pull out and extend into the room. This eats up a lot of real estate. If you don’t have much depth in your room then an urban sofa bed is a fantastic alternative. An urban sofa bed might also be the right decision if you like a minimalist look. If you have the space and want a larger sleeping surface then a standard sleeper sofa is the way to go.
Twin Size Sleeper vs. Daybed
Twin Size Sleepers and daybeds are great options for overnight guests, especially if you’re tight on space. If you don’t have the room for a sleeper sofa then a daybed is a smart choice. It transforms into a bed without the need for any additional space. A Twin Size sleeper will require space in front of it to pull out the mattress. Both pieces can function as a sofa during the day time, but a Twin Size sleeper is almost always going to be more comfortable for actual sitting purposes. They also have very different looks. A daybed has a “French countryside estate” style versus a Twin Size sleeper, which has a more traditional home sofa look.

Reversible Chaise Sleeper vs. Sectional Sofa Bed
Apt2B features two of the largest classes of sleeper sofas on the Internet. We have the Reversible Chaise Sleeper and the Sleeper Sectional. Both of these styles provide the sectional comfort and size, but they do have some slight differences. A Reversible Chaise Sleeper can often feature a larger mattress than a sectional sofa bed. That’s because a Reversible Chaise Sleeper allows you to remove the ottoman portion entirely. This provides extra room for a bigger mattress. A Sleeper Sectional has a fixed chaise portion, which means that many sectional sofa beds can only fit a Full Size mattress. Apt2B does feature several Sleeper Sectionals that have a Queen Size mattress like the Tuxedo, the Brentwood, and the Fillmore.
Maximum Seating Space + Maximum Sleeper Space?
Want to truly maximize your seating space AND your sleeping space? Apt2B offers two of the biggest sleeper sofas out there. The Melrose 3pc Sleeper Sectional is the best of both worlds. It features two sofa portions and a big chaise portion. You can sleep an entire family of 4 on this massive sofa bed! If you have the room for this giant convertible sofa bed then you won’t believe the amount of value you’ll get out of it. No matter what you choose, we have the best sleeper sofas on the Internet.
