7 Life-Changing Reasons to Buy a Pull Out Couch

Torn between settling for a regular sofa and buying a pull out couch? Well, let us make things easier for you.

When choosing the latter, you're not just getting a new piece of furniture: you're investing in a life-changing, multi-purpose item that will save the day (and night) in many scenarios!

Put your feet up and discover the best reasons to buy a pull out couch.

1. A pull out couch is a lifesaver when you have guests over

  • Whether you're planning on having some family members over for a week or you've invited a couple of friends for dinner and realized that it's far too late to send them home, a pull out couch is the perfect solution;

  • Because it only takes a moment to go from 'sitting comfortably with a glass of wine' to turning it into its bed state, you'll be able to accommodate your guests without any hassles or uncomfortable waits;

  • With most models, you can easily make the bed a few hours in advance, push the mattress in, use it as a normal couch, and then pull it out when needed. Ta-dah, the bed is ready to be used!

2. Pull out couches are just as comfortable as traditional sofas and beds

Don't worry: choosing a pull out couch most certainly doesn't mean that you'll have to compromise on comfort!

  • When you're sitting down on them, they look and feel just like traditional couches, ideal to relax after a long day at work or cozy up in front of the TV;

  • Once you open them, they'll reveal a mattress that's guaranteed to ensure some sweet dreams to your lucky guests. Obviously, you must choose a good model, such as one that features a memory foam or sprung mattress.

3. You'll save a lot of precious space…

Let's be honest: not everyone can flaunt a spare room in their modern house. And, if you do, is it really worth turning it into a guest room that will only be used once every few months?

  • Pull out couches are a fantastic space-optimizing solution!

  • Instead of giving up an entire room, you'll only need to open them when you actually have guests over;

  • Still, you can make the most of them every single day by using them as a couch;

  • Sure, it's handy if you've got enough space left to comfortably walk around your pull out couch when the mattress is out, but it doesn't really matter that much. After all, your guests will be sleeping and then you'll turn it back into a sofa when they get up in the morning. That's why pull out couches are game-changers even in the smallest living rooms!

4. … And money!

Buying such a versatile dual-use piece of furniture instead of two separate ones isn't just great when it comes to space: your wallet will thank you, too!

  • On average, beds are a lot more expensive than pull out couches;
  • Imagine buying both a bed and a traditional couch!

5. A pull out couch can even give you some extra storage

Not all models do, but, if you feel like your living room is always too messy and there never seems to be enough storage space, you can opt for a pull out couch with a secret compartment or two.

Whether you need it for some spare sheets or other objects that could be useful when you're spending time in your living room, it's a handy ace up its sleeve.

It can definitely help you get rid of some clutter, especially when you're secretly trying to impress your guests!

6. Pull out couches come in tons of different designs and sizes

Gone are the days when pull out couches all looked fairly similar and were mainly available in one size!

  • Nowadays, you can find pull out couches in lots of different sizes, such as twin sleepers, queen, king size and more;

  • This makes them an ideal choice to really make the most of the space in your living room, whether you live in a small flat or a large mansion;

  • Size aside, you get to choose among many different designs, fabrics and colors. It definitely won't be a problem to match your room's style!

7. A pull out couch can help you reinforce the décor style of your room

Finally, because pull out couches are such attention-grabbing elements, they can help you define a specific décor style.

Since, as we've already established, they're available in many different designs and colors, you can look for the right pull out couch for your décor style and really tie your room together.
