If you’re shopping for furniture for your home, consider a sofa bed, sleeper sofa or futon. Sam’s Club® carries a variety of each type, and they’re a great way to save money if you prefer not to invest in an extra bed. Sleeper sofas are extremely versatile and offer many benefits that regular sofas don’t. Many people don’t have enough space for a guest room or an extra bed for guests to sleep on. With a sofa bed, you won’t have to worry about that. So, what’s the difference between a sofa bed, sleeper sofa, futon, trundle and daybed?
Sofa beds and sleeper sofas both look like traditional couches or sofas. In fact, you probably can’t tell that they are sleepers. They’re typically the same size as regular couches. But when you remove the cushions, you’ll see that there’s a pull-out bed inside. A futon is an adjustable piece of furniture that has a slim, sleek design. It can lay flat as a bed or be adjusted for daytime use as a couch. Futons are ideal for smaller spaces. Sometimes, futon mattresses and futon frames are sold separately. And, you can get a cover for a futon mattress to match your décor.
A daybed is like a combination between a couch and a bed. It can serve as a place to sit or a place to sleep, and looks nice in a common area like a living room. Daybeds often have retro or antique styling, with metal or wicker details. Daybeds and mattresses are often sold separately. A trundle is the style of bed that has an extra pull-out bed underneath. Trundles pull out like drawers, and sit lower than the original bed. Sam’s carries several combination daybed trundles, which can be used as couches, regular beds and guest beds. They are both stylish and versatile.
No matter which type you choose, Sam’s Club has a sofa bed, sleeper sofa or futon to match your style and your budget.
