Best Pull Out Couches For Different Style Interiors

Buying a pull out couch is a life-changing choice that will help you make the most of your room's layout and cater for different situations. However, don't forget that, versatility and practicality aside, a pull-out couch will also become the main focus in your living room.

You definitely don't want to pick it randomly and end up with a model that's got nothing to do with the décor style that you're going for!

We've decided to make things easier for you by showing you what features to look for and bringing the best pull out couches for different style interiors in one place.

Best pull out couches for modern & contemporary décors

These styles share many similarities as they both focus on functionality, simplicity and sleek lines. While modern interiors are still inspired by 20th-century trends, contemporary rooms are more fluid as they focus on the here and now.

When it comes to pull out couches, look for clean and crisp lines, with some curves if you're opting for a more contemporary style. Prioritize a simple palette, either as neutral colors or one that matches a bold hue in your room.

Best pull out couches for mid-century modern décor

Fascinated by the charming style of 50s and 60s interiors? To make sure that your new pull out couch doesn't look out of place, you could either go for leather, brown models, or upholstery featuring geometric patterns.

Oh, and don't forget about short exposed legs!

While it covers different styles, it's inspired by the warmth of European houses, which translates into ornate rooms with lots of wood, layers and accessories.

To reflect this with your pull out couch, you can look for curved arm-rests, cozy patterns, fabric upholstery and, obviously, lots of cushions!

One thing's for sure: functionality-focused minimalism is the ultimate style for a dual-use piece of furniture!

Since nothing is superfluous, choose a pull out couch with a streamlined, clean design. Avoid models with too many details to maintain a clutter-free feel, and choose a neutral palette, preferably a monochrome model.

These couches often feature exposed legs but always in a thin shape. Choosing one with hidden storage could help you reduce clutter even further!
