The search for the perfect sofa can make you wish that life was as simple as a fairy tale — but in reality, finding seating for your living room that’s “just right” can sometimes feel like an insurmountable task, especially when you have a long checklist of qualifications. But that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to find a sofa that does it all.

In fact, there are plenty of great sleeper sofas with storage to choose from — proving that you can make the most of your space in style. When you can easily stash away extra blankets and pillows, hosting friends and family becomes a cinch. And home movie nights get even cozier, especially when you fall asleep before the end credits.
