What is the best IKEA sofa bed?
IKEA has a huge selection of sofa beds to choose from.
But which one is the best? 👇
FRIHETEN corner sofa bed
The FRIHETEN corner sofa bed by IKEA is a popular choice.
There is plenty of seating space on this corner sofa, perfect for movie nights. 🍿
The hidden storage underneath is also a great way to store cushions or board games.
But there are better quality products that deserve a spot in your living room.
We think the Limerick 3-seater sofa bed is a fantastic higher quality alternative. 👌
We love the pocket spring base that emulates a real mattress.
NYHAMN sofa bed
The NYHAMN IKEA sofa bed is one of the most convenient options with its simple click-clack mechanism.
Despite the compact frame, this space-saving sofa bed folds out into a double size when open. 🙌
This three-seater sofa bed comes with a removable cover that can be washed up to 40°C.
We think the Aurora sofa bed is a great alternative with a more premium look. ✨
This affordable alternative comes in soft-touch velvet and a 5-year guarantee. 🤞
LIDHULT sofa bed
For those leather lovers, you’ve probably already checked out the LIDHULT IKEA sofa bed.
This premium choice sofa bed is made with durable real leather, which will withstand the test of time. ⏲️
This traditional-style sofa bed has a real double mattress that pulls out from the inside.
There is even some extra storage space under the chaise for bedding and pillows.
But for those looking for a cheaper and more compact alternative, the Franklin Black Leather Sofa Bed is a fantastic option. 😍
This faux leather sofa bed offers a modern design with an easy click-clack mechanism. 😀
LYCKSELE sofa bed
The LYCKSELE sofa bed provides more sleeping options without compromising space.
This simple chair bed design folds out into a single bed perfect for the occasional guest. 🧳
The LYCKSELE comes with a removable cover available in a range of colours.
However, the Jay-Be Footstool sofa bed is also worth considering. 🤔

Corner IKEA sofa beds are ideal for rooms where the sofa will be used regularly.
They usually come as a 2 or 3 seater with a chaise or corner piece.
Sizes differ, but they are usually bulky and need to be in a room with more space. 🌌
The FRIHETEN and HOLMSUND sofa bed are big sellers.
2-seater IKEA sofa bed
2-Seater IKEA sofa beds can be compact whilst still offering plenty of seating and sleeping space. 🛋️
2-Seater IKEA sofa beds are composed of 2 seats that convert into a sofa bed.
This is often done with a click-clack mechanism, making it convenient for frequent use.
They are usually up to 200cm wide and look great in an office space. 🖱️
The VALLENTUNA 2-seat modular sofa bed is a popular choice.
Are IKEA sofa beds comfortable?
We would be lying if we said IKEA sofa beds were the most comfortable option available.
If you’re looking for a cheap-as-chips product that will not be used often, then an IKEA sofa bed is your best bet.
They can be a brilliant choice for children who can sleep on lower quality products without suffering from back pain. 🧒
But, particularly for older guests, an IKEA sofa bed will likely provide an uncomfortable sleep.
For those who will have frequent guests or those staying for more than one night, it’s important to make their stay as comfortable as possible.
Nobody wants to wake up sore and tired on Boxing Day morning because your cheap IKEA sofa bed kept them up all night.
And there’s no reason a sofa bed should be any less comfortable than a regular mattress.
Consider a high-quality alternative for a more refreshing sleep. 👇
