What to Consider

After figuring out the right size sofa for your space, mattress quality—along with how often you host guests and your budget—should guide your purchase. If you occasionally invite friends to stay the weekend, you may consider a cost-effective option with a decent mattress, whereas a high-quality mattress is a better choice for those with long-term guests.

Generally speaking, mattresses are all-foam, have innersprings, or are a hybrid of both, with varying degrees of quality that often goes up with the price tag. A mattress with regular foam is going to cost a lot less than one with high-density or memory foam, for example.

As for the frame, you can get a well-priced sleeper sofa made with 100 percent kiln-dried hardwood, though some are a mix of solid and manufactured wood. Once you’ve nailed down those essential details, it’s all about style, color, and fabric.
