Futons & Sleeper Sofas

Sleeper sofas (and their close cousins, the futon) combine the best of both worlds by providing both a comfortable sofa and a pull-out mattress when it’s time for bed.

Known by many names including couch beds, hide-a-beds, and pullout sofas, sleeper sofas are designed as standard sofas with a mattress and bedframe folded up underneath. It’s as easy as that - when they’re folded up as a sofa you can sit on them like normal, and when they’re pulled out they work just like a normal bed would!

Many homes prefer these in settings where there’s no room for a dedicated guest bedroom, or anyone that expects a lot of company around the holidays that they need to prepare for. Whatever the reason, the convenience of sleeper sofas has made them a popular fixture in the living rooms and guest rooms of America for decades, and Art Van has one of the best selections of sleeper sofas and futons in the Midwest!

Buying Guide

Sleeper sofas can come in many styles, shapes, and sizes, and it can get a little overwhelming trying to pick one. There’s a few common questions most people have when shopping for a sleeper sofa, and by knowing the answers ahead of time you’ll be even better prepared when it comes time to make your purchase!

Sleeper Sofas vs. Futons - What’s the Difference?

One of the biggest things people wonder about is the difference between futons and sleeper sofas - and even the difference between sleeper sofas, futons, and couches.

While futons and sleeper sofas fulfill a similar need, the biggest difference arises in their design and function. Futons also double as a couch when folded upright and can comfortably seat a few people, but when they convert to a bed they open outwards and fold downward, almost like a hardcover book. Instead of separating the couch from the mattress like a sleeper couch does, futons use the same cushion both as a couch and a bed, consisting of one mattress laid across the length of the frame.

Sleeper sofas, on the other hand, typically combine both couch cushions and a mattress underneath. The couch cushions get moved aside to let the bedframe and mattress fold out from underneath, unfurling longer length-wise (as opposed to a futon which tends to be bigger width-wise).

At that point the choice boils down to personal preference and the space you have to work with. Couch beds and sleeper sofas are a great solution for guests, but they require more space due to how they unfold so you may need to rearrange your room accordingly. Conversely, futons require less space and are just as comfortable, but may require special placement in a room to ensure they can unfold properly.

What Kind of Sleeper Sofa Should I Get?

Sleeper sofas are interesting in that they combine elements of both beds and sofas, meaning you have plenty of options to pick from when it comes to style, size, and type.

Most sleeper sofas are designed like a traditional couch - three cushions straight across, plush back, and the like. The cushions conceal the fold-out bedframe and mattress, allowing for easy conversion between the couch and the bed.

For smaller spaces or single sleepers, loveseat sleeper sofas are an option too. Offering the same convertible-bed design as a sleeper, loveseat sleeper sofas are a good option when available space is at a premium without sacrificing the comfort and convenience of a sofa bed.

When space isn’t an issue, or if you want your sleeper sofa to be more integrated with the space it sits in, larger options are also available such as sectional sleepers. Sectional sleeper sofas, true to their name, combine the pull-out bed design of sleeper sofas with the size and seating options of sectional couches. Many sectional sleeper sofas are available in the standard L-shape favored by many sectional sofas, and can be a great way of combining the convenience of a sleeper sofa with the generous seating and room-defining style of a sectional sofa.

Even if you prefer the standard couch-styled sleeper sofa, you still have plenty of choices in styles and designs that way. Sleeper sofas are available in nearly any design style to match your tastes, from timeless vintage couch styles to sleek modern offerings, including the in-vogue low-profile mid century modern design. Whatever your preference in sleeper sofa, Art Van will have the sleeper couch to meet your tastes.

What Size Sleeper Sofa Do I Need?

As sleeper sofas are part-sofa and part-mattress, when you need to decide how big your sleeper couch should be you should consider many of the same factors both for buying a couch and buying a mattress.

For example, you can actually choose a sleeper sofa based on the size of the mattress you need instead of the size of the couch. Sleeper sofas are available in common mattress sizes ranging from full to queen size to help fit any space or any amount of guests.

The size of your room and the amount of company you can reasonably expect will factor into your decision, too. Many smaller spaces such as apartments, guest rooms, or even Airbnb spaces may need a smaller sleeper sofa with a full size mattress, or a more loveseat-style sleeper sofa design to conserve space while still providing a comfortable place for your guests to sleep. Take a look at where you plan on setting up your sleeper sofa and figure out what the best size option for you will be.

What Upholstery Options Do I Get With Sleeper Sofas?

In addition to your choice of sizes and styles, sleeper sofas are also available in a number of different upholstery styles and color choices too.

Similar to many modern couches, sleeper sofas are commonly found in leather upholstery of various colors including brown, black, and even red if you really want your sleeper sofa to pop.

Standard fabric upholstery is available too if you don’t care for the leather look, available in a number of colors from grey to blue to red and everything in between. Best of all, most sleeper couches are compatible with standard mattress sheets and fittings, allowing you to get exactly the look you want on your sleeper sofa.

Futons are similar, in that they all typically have a microfiber covering for the main cushion but are available in several different colors to suit your mood (or at least the color of the room).
