Sleeper sofas are very popular and with good reason. They provide you with a comfortable and fashionable place to sit while at the same time giving your guests a place to sleep when needed. The advantages of a sleeper couch are well known and documented and more and more people are turning to them when it comes time to buy a sofa. Where people run into problems with sleeper sofas is when they have either a small space for the sofa or a difficult pathway such as a tight corner or hallway. An extra small door frame can literally eliminate a regular sized sleeper sofa. Fortunately there are some super high quality options for small sofa sleepers that work beautifully and provide all the same benefits as a full size sofa.
The key to a comfortable small sofa sleeper is all in the mattress. Some small and full size sleeper sofas have paper thin mattresses and springs sticking into the back. Most of us have experienced the dreaded sleeper sofas of old. Most sleeper sofas today are much better than the metal filled spring loaded sleeper sofas of old. Still the average sleeper sofa sold today is not what you would call comfortable either. Other small couch sleepers are incredibly comfortable and easy to lay on.
After acknowledging the right size of the sofa you need to have a frame check. The frame of that sofa should be sturdy and strong. The frames are generally made of either wood metal or plastic. If it is made up of wood then ensure that it is made up of solid wood. The sofa should not wobble on the corners. You also need to check how the edges of the frame are held together. They should not be glued but attached with the help of screws and bolts. This will make the joints stronger and more reliable.
Where the problem comes in with most small sleeper couches is comfort. Because the sofa is small the mattress or bedding option is usually quite low in quality and uncomfortable. What people do not realize is that not all small sofa sleepers are created equal. There are small couch sleepers on the market today that are incredibly comfortable. Some may even argue that they are more comfortable than the full size option as comfort is not determined solely by size.
