Those living in small apartments and studios can never go wrong with a sofa and bed combo! Simply use it as a sitting area during the day and extend it into a comfortable bed at night. Plus, they make a great sleeping option for guests who can't sleep on air mattresses.

There are various types of sofa beds to choose from, including sleeper sofas, pull-out couches, daybeds, and much more. Moreover, you get to choose whether you're most comfortable with a twin, queen, or king-sized mattress. If storage space is also an issue, you can opt for a sofa bed with built-in storage. If you can't already tell, sofa beds have a lot to offer in terms of functionality, style, design, and comfort levels.

Sofa beds are great, but murphy beds are even greater for those with a bit of room to spare.

But there's more to murphy beds!

If you want to take your space-saving home design to the next level, consider getting a murphy bed with desk, shelves, storage cabinets, wardrobes, or even one with a built-in sofa. You'll have everything you could possibly need all in one unit! Although they're much more on the pricier side in comparison to sofa beds, they're definitely worth investing in if you want a multipurpose unit that'll last for years.

They have a compact design but are spacious enough to fit your bedding, clothes, accessories, and other miscellaneous items you want to keep within reach. Additionally, their storage space can serve as a dresser, meaning you can get rid of your dresser to maximize your area. Plus, these types of sleeping solutions have a clean and neat appearance that doesn't make the room look too cluttered.
