Living in a small home means you can’t have a lot of pieces of furniture for different purposes cramping up the space. Small functional furniture is usually the answer and sleeper sofas are almost always welcome in a small living room. It’s simple – you get seating and an extra sleeping area by occupying as little space as possible.

And here’s our subjective list of the top 10 best sleeper sofas in 2018 that we can possibly find. When researching them we made sure that they were not only well built, sturdy and easy to use but attractive in their design too. Bringing one of them home you will not damage your decor and you can choose the style to fit. (Looking for the cheaper options? Check out our list of the best sleeper sofas under $500.)

Zipline Convertible Sofa with 3 Ottoman Set

Zipline Convertible Sofa Bed with 3 Ottoman Set


The Zipline convertible sofa is one of our all time favorites for many reasons. First of all, being so compact it is very functional and roomy. It doesn’t take much space and fits even small rooms. The chic look and a choice of cover colors will make it work in almost any decor style. It unfolds into a king-size bed or a lounge day bed. We love this sofa bed for its versatility and style. There are many uses in different rooms of a house for it. It will work as a couch in a living room, in a playroom or teenagers room. Any doubts? It is quite low (4 inches lower than an average chair) and can be a bit to snug for a tall person. Other than that it’s a great sleeper sofa for a reasonable price. Available at Houzz.

The Frankfort sofa bed is a sleek and modern addition to your home.

We like its clean modern look and versatility. The only drawback that can be mentioned is a rather slim depth (though it’s alright in most cases). Available at Houzz.
