    What is the best IKEA sofa bed?

    We’ve mentioned some of the best IKEA sofa beds already…

    But what is it that makes these Swedish-made sofa beds so popular? 🧐

    Storage

    We love the integrated storage of the FRIHETEN Corner Sofa Bed and the HEMNES Day Bed. 😍

    The FRIHETEN seat section contains hidden storage underneath, whilst the HEMNES Day Bed has built-in drawers.

    IKEA FRIHETEN SOFA BED

    IKEA HEMNES DAY BED

    Storage is key, particularly for those who live in newer builds or flats, with limited storage space available. ⛺

    IKEA isn’t shy with storage and as much as 28 of their sofa beds have different storage options.

    If space is an issue, we also recommend investing in an ottoman bed base for even more hidden storage.

    Ottoman bed frames offer a vast amount of storage without compromising on your living space.

    They’re a great way to store your extra bedding, towels, or even your bag and shoe collection! 👜👠


    BUY DREAMCLOUD OTTOMAN

    Design

    Another key aspect of IKEA products is the simplicity of their designs.

    IKEA sofa beds have a sleek and clean look ideal for the minimalist style of a contemporary home. 🏠

    We also found that corner IKEA sofa beds, 2 seater IKEA sofa beds and grey IKEA sofa beds were amongst the most popular style choices.

    Some of our favourite IKEA sofa beds that implement this minimalist look include the BRIMNES Day Bed, FLOTTEBO Sofa Bed with Side Table and the VALLENTUNA.

    IKEA BRIMNES day bed

    IKEA VALLENTUNA chair bed

    But if style is of import, then you should consider investing in a higher quality product.

    However, whilst IKEA beds look stylish, on closer inspection you can usually tell they are made cheaply with low-quality materials. 👎

    Dreams have a great selection of sofa beds that are both stylish and made with quality materials.

    SHOP SOFA BEDS

    Price

    For IKEA, one of their biggest selling points is the price.

    IKEA sofa beds range from £100-£3000. 💰

    Whilst IKEA sofa beds are usually affordable and can be a great option for those on a budget, they often compromise on quality.

    price performance ratio graphic
    You should consider your budget against the kind of quality sofa bed you need.

    If money is tight, then an IKEA sofa bed that costs under £300 is definitely worth considering.

    Some of the cheapest IKEA sofa beds include the FYRESDAL day-bed and the LYCKSELE 2-seater sofa bed.

    But IKEA isn't the only brand that offers budget-friendly products.🏷️

    We love the Aurora Grey Fabric Sofa bed and the Ellery 3 Seater Sofa bed which are both better quality, stylish, and affordable.

    How to choose an IKEA sofa bed

    IKEA sofa beds come in many shapes and sizes.

    Choosing what kind of sofa bed you need depends on your own individual needs and preferences.

    When choosing your sofa bed, consider the following criteria:

    • How much space do I have available?
    • What room do I want to use for the sofa bed?
    • How many people does the sofa bed need to sleep?
    • How often will the sofa bed be used?
    • What is my budget for a sofa bed?
    • What style/colour/fabrics do I like?

    Types of IKEA sofa beds

    Once you’ve decided on the most important factors for your new sofa bed, this will help to narrow down the type of sofa bed you need.

    Below is a list of all the different IKEA sofa beds available! 👇

    Single IKEA sofa bed

    Single size sofa bed that sleeps one person. 🙋

    Ideal for children or occasional-use for guests.

    The mattress usually measures around 90cm x 190cm (the same size as a single bed!)

    The LYCKSELE chair bed is a popular choice.

    lycksele single ikea sofa bed open
    The IKEA LYCKSELE Single Sofa Bed is popular.

    Our favourite single IKEA sofa bed alternative:

    We’re a big fan of the Jay-Be Mink Footstool Sofa Bed.

    This footstool sofa bed is perfect for small spaces.

    We love how this simple stool design can be tucked away or used as a footrest in the comfort of your living room.

    Double IKEA sofa beds are ideal for those who have couples staying overnight.

    The mattress usually measures around 135cm x 190cm (the same size as a double bed!)

    The ASKEBY two-seat sofa bed is a good option.

    Our favourite double IKEA sofa bed alternative:

    The Cork A-Frame sofa bed is a great choice.

    The sleeping area for the double sofa size measures 145cm x 192cm.

    This sofa bed made with responsive foam is also available in a single and small double size for those short on space.

    BUY CORK SOFA BED

    cork a-frame sofa bed open

    Corner IKEA sofa bed

    Corner IKEA sofa beds are typically an L-shaped sofa.

    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 FRITEHEN and HOLMSUND sofa bed are a popular choice.

    IKEA Friheten sofa bed

    IKEA HOLMSUND sofa bed

    Our favourite corner IKEA sofa bed alternative:

    We love the Limerick 3-seater corner sofa bed by Dreams.

    The contemporary design combines comfort and style.

    We think this sofa bed would look great in the living room, with its matching accent chair and footstool for a completed look.

    2-seater IKEA sofa bed

    2-Seater IKEA sofa beds can be compact whilst still offering plenty of seats 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 clic-clac mechanism which makes them 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.

    3-seat sofa beds are also available for those that need some extra room. However, these are usually much wider, so ensure you have the space available before you buy.

    Our favourite 2-seater IKEA sofa bed alternative:

    We love the Haze 2 Seater Sofa Bed by Dreams.

    This more affordable but higher-quality alternative to the VALLENTUNA sofa bed.

    The pocket-sprung sleeping area offers a more supported sleep.

    The easy clic-clac mechanism makes this a great option for frequent use.

    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 kids who can sleep on anything without suffering from cramps or back pain. 🧒

    But, particularly for those older people, an IKEA sofa bed is not going to be the most comfortable sleep, and you may wake up with aches and pains.

    BEST MATTRESS FOR BACK PAIN

    back and neck pain graphic
    Cheap and unsupportive sofa beds will cause back and neck pain.

    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. 👇

    Our favourite IKEA sofa bed alternatives:

    How can I make my IKEA sofa bed more comfortable?

    So, you have a sleeper sofa but you’re looking to improve the way it feels?

    The last thing you need is your guests having to visit their chiropractor after their stay...

    Don’t worry! 😅

    Before you decide to throw the sofa bed in the skip, there are ways you can try to enhance its overall comfort. ☁️

    Consider investing in a mattress topper.

    A mattress topper goes on top of the sofa bed or mattress to offer an added layer of support and comfort.

    mattress topper graphic
    Mattress toppers can add some extra comfort to your mattress.

    A thick mattress topper can also double-up as a futon for those guests who like a firmer sleep.

    We highly recommend the Panda Mattress Topper. 🐼

    The advanced gel-infused topper keeps you cool whilst adding a layer of comfort.

    The Hydro-foam™ improves support for the back, neck and hips.

    The hypoallergenic bamboo cover is kind to sensitive skin. 🦔

    Upgrade your guest pillows

    Pillows can make the world of difference to a good night’s sleep, but their importance is often overlooked.

    Pillows are usually the most affordable way to impress your guests. 💡

    woman hugging pillow graphic
    Upgrading your pillows can make the world of difference to the feel of your sofa bed.

    The Nectar Adjustable Pillow is a great pillow for your overnight visitors.

    These memory foam pillows contour around the body for the best pressure-relieving support.

    The layers can be removed depending on your guest's sleeping position to ensure they wake up free from aches and pains. 🥰

    We recommend using 3 layers for side sleepers, 2 layers for back sleepers, and 1 layer for stomach sleepers.

    Replace the IKEA mattress for your sofa bed

    Even though you bought your sofa bed from IKEA, there’s no reason you should stick with the same cheap and unsupportive mattress. 😬

    Rather than replacing the IKEA sofa bed, why not try upgrading the mattress first?

    We highly recommend the Bodyshape Memory Foam Sofa Bed Mattress.

    This foam mattress combines memory and reflex foam for a supported but comfortable sleep. 🥰

    Save up for a better sofa bed

    Sometimes, planning ahead of time is the best solution.

    Is it your turn to host during the holidays and you’re anxious about those coming to stay?

    Perhaps the previous Christmas you made a last minute shop and bought a cheap IKEA sofa bed just because it could be delivered quickly.

    Instead, think about saving up months in advance and ordering ahead of time so you don’t have to limit your options.

    Some sofa beds have as much as a 4-10 week wait for delivery, so you’ll want to look at options as soon as the winter season approaches (or sooner!)

    You could also consider retailers with finance available so you can spread the cost and pay out for the sofa bed before you have to buy gifts.

    price performance ratio graphic
    It's important to find a balance between your budget and comfort.

    Dreams have interest-free finance available on all sofa beds over £500.

    They help keep the sofa bed in good condition and improve its overall lifespan with a fresh new look.

    Should I buy an IKEA sofa bed?

    Frequently Asked Questions

    • How do you assemble an IKEA sofa bed?


      IKEA sofa beds can be assembled by following the instructions that come with your IKEA furniture. 

      The difficulty-level of assembly will depend on the type of IKEA sofa bed you buy. 

      Usually it takes around 2 people to assemble an IKEA sofa bed and shouldn’t take more than a few hours.  

      You should have basic tools to hand such as an Allen key, hammer and/or screwdriver. 

      The video below can give you a good understanding of how an IKEA sofa bed is assembled:

      If you struggle with self-assembly, consider asking a friend or relative for a hand. 

      You can also check the assembly documents in product details before finalising your purchase. 

      You can usually add assembly on for an additional fee for IKEA or another furniture retailer, such as Dreams.

    • How do you open an IKEA sofa bed?


      IKEA sofa beds open differently depending on the type of one you buy. 

      Some IKEA folding beds with ‘clic-clac’ mechanisms can be easily opened by pulling the backrest of the sofa bed forward or backwards and then laying it flat. 

      Other IKEA sofa beds come with wheels on the base of the bed that can be pulled out and extended. 

      Alternatively, some other types of IKEA sofa beds follow a fold out method, just remove the back cushions and unfold the seat. 

      Check the assembly guide of your IKEA sofa bed to see the structure of the design.
