Here at the Strategist UK, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing ones. (You can learn more about our rating system and how we pick each item here.)
And whilst we’ve covered lots of bedding before — including mattresses, mattress toppers, and weighted blankets — here, we’ve rounded up the best sofa beds for everyone, as praised by the most enthusiastic reviewers on Amazon.
Best-rated overall sofa bed
The Honeypot two-seater sofa bed comes highly recommended by reviewers: 74 percent of its reviews are five stars; 57 buyers said they are confident that the bed is comfortable; and 39 love the storage space available. One reviewer claims that they can easily fit pillows, a blanket, and a double duvet inside, so it works great as a spare bed (another customer claims that it takes less than a minute to convert to a bed). Another customer says that when pulled out into a bed, it’s even more comfortable than the sofa. Though there are cheaper sofa bed options on our list, 30 reviewers believe this one is worth the investment, with several commenting that they use the bed for their offices, spare rooms, and as a place for their children or grandchildren to have sleepovers.
Best-rated (less expensive) sofa bed
At a slightly lower price point, this three-seater sofa folds out into a “click-clack” style bed — an easy-to-use mechanism which means the sofa bed can be converted with a single movement. Not surprisingly, then, 30 reviewers say that the Duo-Contrast sofa bed is easy to assemble, while 57 comment on the comfort. Despite its lower price, the three-seater is very spacious, and one buyer actually states that it can comfortably seat four adults. With a wooden platform underneath the sofa bed for support, this is also a more sturdy option, though unlike the Honeypot two-seater, there’s no storage space included.
Best-rated “click-clack” sofa bed
While this is one of the cheapest options we’ve mentioned here, 22 customers speak of the great value for money, with one even stating that they bought two, after noting how easy it was to set up the sofa bed. In fact, 23 reviewers agree that this sofa bed is easy to assemble — one says it only takes two minutes, adding that they regularly use it for watching TV in their room.
Best-rated stylish sofa bed
With a “click-clack” mechanism, 23 customers love the ease with which they can use and assemble this sofa bed. One buyer states that they slept on the bed for two weeks straight with no back aches or other problems, while another claims that for their daughter’s movie room, the sofa is comfortable and a great size.
Best-rated corner sofa bed
As a larger sofa bed, this Honeypot option comes at a higher price point than others we’ve featured here, but it’s very popular among reviewers: 71 percent of its reviews are five stars, and 30 customers mention how comfortable it is, with one claiming that, when converted into a sofa bed, four people can lie back with ease and watch a film. In fact, lots of buyers comment on the family-friendly aspect of the sofa, as it comfortably fits several adults while upright and easily converts into a king-size bed when converted. One reviewer, who loves how easy it is to change from a sofa to a bed, also noted the “amazing” storage space. It’s worth noting that this is a firmer sofa bed than some others, though.
This Natalia Spzoo fold-out futon sofa comes highly recommended by reviewers, with many using it as a guest bed for smaller guests. One customer says that they purchased this over lockdown so as to give their niece not only a place to stay, but a “comfy seat in the office” during home-schooling. The futon is not just built for kids, though, as another buyer states that their partner actually prefers it to their own bed — they also add that there’s enough extra leg room for taller people. Over 100 reviewers speak highly of how comfortable this futon is, and many are happy with the very low price point.
