Our Sofa Bed Search

With a new baby arriving we knew we were going to be having guests staying the night at our house and we literally had no where for them to sleep. So we were on the hunt for a good sofa bed! 

We ended up going with the Hagalund sofa bed from Ikea. So far we have been really impressed with it. My favorite thing about it is the size. Since this piece had to be in my office we couldn't go with anything too big. You could fit two people on it but it might be a little tight. It fits one really comfortably. Josh and I have actually napped on it a few times and we both think it's really comfortable. Josh wasn't 100% sold on the white slipcover but once I paint my office it will pop a little from the wall. 

Ikea actually had a ton of great sofa bed options. If we had the space we would have gone with the Extorp. But it was way too bulky and big for my office.

Here are a few other small scale sofa sleepers that I liked.

  7. I have a baby on the way as well and since the baby will be sleeping with us, the second room will be kindof a baby/guest room. With the same dilema you have here, it suddenly struck me one day that I should get a daybed. After searching and searching on craigslist, I found a really nice one that already came with a trundle that pops up. Generally I am opposed to daybeds.... BUT with the trundle popped up, it makes a king! You don't have to sacrifice the comfort of a large bed, but you can also use it as a single AND a cuddling, reclining, fluffy, squishy couch for nursing or just spending quality time with your baby in arms! I felt like such a genius with this realization! I plan to keep both beds dressed in twin sheets. When they are pulled out into a king I will have a topper (foam or otherwise) that gives it a little extra and goes under the king-sized sheet. When in couch mode, the king sheet and topper will fold back onto the top bed and have a comforter over it. If all that padding doesn't sound super comfortable for a cuddle couch, then I don't know what is. The frame is a wide metal scrolling pattern that I have considered sewing a sort of bumper type hanging for, to close off any large spots where baby could go. I hope this broadens your horizons to the possibilities!
    Maybe when I finally have it all set up, I can take pics of all the different setups.
    Take care! http://www.primalandpregnant.com
