Choosing between a sofa bed or futon has much to do with personal preference. Each has their own benefits. If you are looking for a more traditional couch look and feel, then a sofa bed may be the better option for you. However, if you are looking for a versatile, customizable, piece of furniture, a futon will be what works for you. Futons are smaller, lighter, and work better in small spaces. Because they tend to be lighter than sofa beds, they can be easier to operate than sofa beds. Some sofa bed models recommend two people to operate or convert from a couch to a bed. However, some people believe that futons are not as comfortable as a sofa bed, recalling the thin mattress they had in college. Futon mattresses have gone through major upgrades over the past thirty years, with some models easily comparable to traditional box spring mattresses. There are organic futons, memory foam futon mattresses, and even chemical free futons. The options are vast.

With this being said, high end sofa beds do look like traditional couches and some even feel like traditional beds. They are durable and are designed to last for many years. These high end models may be cost prohibitive to some who are looking for a secondary piece of furniture that will be only occasionally used. The best option is to try out the different futons and sofa beds before making a decision.
