What is a sofa bed?

A sofa bed is a multifunctional piece of furniture that can be utilised as a bed or sofa. As popularity has increased over the years, a sofa bed has taken on the form of other names such as 'couch beds' or a 'futon'.

Where should I put my sofa bed?

A sofa bed is commonly placed in the spare bedroom to provide both a seating area and a place to sleep without having to purchase two pieces of furniture whilst also saving space. Although it's not always the case, a spare bedroom tends to be the smallest room within the house due to its limited use; a fold-out sofa bed provides the perks of both a sofa and bed whilst enabling the spare room to free up space. A sofa bed is also a perfect investment for a studio, one-bed, and smaller homes with limited space. In addition, a multifunctional sofa bed provides a practical and stylish finish to any small room.

What types of sofa beds are available?

The styles and designs of our sofa beds vary somewhat, and with that in mind, read below to gain an insight into the most obvious and prominent variations of sofa beds.

Pull out sofa bed

A pull out sofa bed is a sofa with a bed that pulls out to create a sleeping area. They include a buried mattress within their frame that you can quickly unfold or fold when required.

Corner sofa beds

A corner sofa bed runs parallel to the corner of the room. As a result, a corner sofa bed is ideal for seating many people whilst maximising floor space.

Day beds

Day beds are another multi-functional sleeping solution that can either be utilised for socialising or sleeping. With this in mind, a day-bed is a fantastic space-saving furnishing for any room with limited space. Moreover, the built-in storage capabilities ensure your bedroom or living room essentials are catered for and within easy reach.


Our sofa beds are available in various sizes, from small single to European double sized sofa beds. A small single bed frame measures 2'6" wide and 6'3" long, whereas our single sofa beds measure 3'0" wide by 6'3" long. Our small double sofa beds measure 4'0" wide by 6'3" long, and our double sofa beds measure 4'6" wide by 6'3" long. The sizes of our sofa beds are categorised by their bed dimensions, i.e. a small single bed represents the size of a small single mattress. Look at the individual product dimensions for further product specifications, including height, depth and width.

Does Mattressman stock small sofa beds?

Sofa beds are often associated with quite bulky, robust structures in the form of a three seater sofa bed. However, smaller sofa beds such as chair beds and two seater sofa beds that are slight in stature are popular bedroom furnishings in homes across the country. Whilst we don't feature chair beds, a sofa bed in the size of an armchair, Mattressman has a wide array of small sofa beds ideally suited for smaller rooms.

What materials are sofa beds upholstered in?

All our sofa beds are upholstered in an array of luxurious fabrics, ensuring your sofa bed will take its place as the room's centrepiece.

Faux leather

Faux leather is a more affordable alternative to leather and adds the wow factor to a bedroom. A Faux leather sofa bed is a fantastic option if you have a limited budget but want a sofa bed with the look and feel of genuine leather.

Upholstered fabric

Varying from bold and illustrious colours to more neutral shades, our sofa beds guarantee to make bold statements. Plush, soft-to-the-touch fabric across our entire range of upholstered sofa beds ensures a comforting rest. Whether it's an emerald green, warm yellow or chic grey sofa bed you have your eye on, we're sure to feature the perfect furniture for your home.
