Planning to invest in a sofa bed? Whether it's to house extra guests at Christmas or you just want the option of another place to sleep, take a look at our top picks.
In the run up to Christmas, we all worry about space and whether or not we have enough of it to house all of our family and friends over the festive period.
One thing to seriously consider investing in a good quality sofa bed that can be used as a place to sit as well as to sleep. You can use it as your main living room sofa, or if you have an office or a guest room – the perfect room to house an extra bed.
Traditionally, sofa beds have been known to be uncomfortable and not particuarly attractive, however nowadays there are lots of great options that will tick all your boxes. Below are a few of our favourites.
This gorgeous Rupert sofa bed is upholstered in plush velvet and has generous seat and back cushions, feather and fibre filled to make the sofa ultra comfortable.
It's available in lots of colours but we love this deep aubergine colour – it's very autumnal!
If space is at a premium and you don't need a full size sofa bed, then this chair bed from Dunelm could be the answer. It has a retro-inspired design and has an easy-to-use fold out mechanism.
It's complete with three adjustable positions for sitting and sleeping, and includes a foam filled pillow for extra support.

The Dream sofa bed from Rose & Grey offers a sleek and elegant design with deep seat cushions that easily fold out to reveal a gorgeous double bed.
It's available in 10 rich colours that will no doubt suit most interior schemes.
If you love chesterfields but also require a sofa bed, this beautiful hybrid from Wayfair is a winner. Upholstered in a luxurious velour fabric, it's super comfortable and looks just as a great as a sofa as it does a fold out double bed.

If a simple, Scandi-inspired design is what you're after, then you'll definitely love the House by John Lewis sofa bed.
The seat cushions of this sofa, which become the mattress when folded down are made of foam. The foam acts like springs, moulding to the body for a supported sleep – perfect!

Short on space and can't opt for a large sofa bed? Then this snooze sofa bed from Calvers and Suvdal might be ideal. It comes in a gorgeous dusky pink and simply folds out to create a place to sleep – ideal for a one night stay!
Available as a two and three seater, the Sofia sofa bed from Made screams luxury. It's easy to pull out thanks to a metal action mechanism and it features a slim 6cm matress, but don't be fooled – your guests will sleep perfectly well.
Like all Loaf products, the Pudding sofa bed is completely customisable with your choice of quality fabric. It also has Loaf's signature design that looks like you will sink in this sofa bed forever thanks to its plump and deep cushions.
We love this bright orange shade, which is extremely autumnal and will make any room feel lovely and warm.
