How to choose a sofa bed - video guide

Make your space more flexible

A sofa bed is an important investment that chosen wisely will allow you to accommodate for that unexpected guest and have extra seating available at a moment's notice! It's a functional and flexible piece of furniture, and there are many types of sofa bed available.

Some offer a practical solution for occasional use, and others are more robust and suitable for frequent use - so they're especially suitable if you don't have a spare bedroom but still want a comfortable sofa. The type and style of mechanism is also important.

We know that sometimes a sofa bed is a last-minute purchase, so we hold selected colours across the whole range in stock, ready for 7 day delivery. To cater for those unexpected guests, we also offer an express 2 day delivery to many postcodes, so your visitors needn't sleep on the floor!

To help you select the right sofa bed, we've made this video guide to show the variety of models available so you can make the right decision. For further information, take a look at our buying guides, including Sofas and Chairs and Measuring up for Furniture.
