Sofa beds are the per­fect so­lu­tion for overnight guests. A dou­ble is ob­vi­ously more ver­sa­tile, while a sin­gle or daybed will take up less space.

Con­sider the fab­ric and colour­way and whether you will need re­mov­able, wash­able cov­ers or a stain-re­sis­tant pro­tec­tion ap­plied be­fore de­liv­ery.

If pos­si­ble, try both the seated and sleep­ing op­tion. Ask to open up the bed to see how easy it is, how sturdy the mech­a­nism is and how com­fort­able the mat­tress.

A de­sign with in­te­gral stor­age for pil­lows is prac­ti­cal.

Take note of the whole length of a sofa bed once it’s fully opened, to make sure there’s enough floor space in front
