We know how important it is that when you have a guest come over, or your spouse kicks you out of the room, there’s a comfortable place to stay. And yet, we also understand that practically speaking, not every room can have a bed. Enter: The sleeper sofa.

But what makes a good sleeper sofa (aka sofa bed), really? Well, we think that’s subjective, and for that reason, we’ve broken down our picks into categories. In building our list we looked at user reviews, quality of materials, style, value, return policies & company support (since you never know when you’ll be unhappy), and of course, our own personal experiences where applicable.

And without further adieu, we bring you the best sleeper sofas and sofa beds of 2019:

It’s hard to go really wrong with IKEA and we actually love this minimalist approach, especially with a few pillows on it.
