Types of sleeper couches explained

At The Mattress Warehouse, we stock a wide range of affordable sleeper couches to suit your individual needs. The most popular sleeper couches are roll-out, pull-out and click-clack.

What is a Roll-out Sleeper Couch?

A roll-out sleeper couch easily transforms into a bed by making use of a built-in rolling mechanism. The seating area easily rolls out onto its feet, while the back cushions are used for upper support. These couches can transform into a single, double or queen bed depending on the size of the actual couch. Most of these furniture pieces at The Mattress Warehouse work with the roll-out mechanism.

What about roll-out sleeper couch prices? These furniture pieces vary from high-end to entry-level prices and can, therefore, suit the capabilities of most buyers. Furthermore, this sleeper couch is very easy and effortless to use. Therefore, this would be the perfect addition to the homes of both young and old!

What is a Pull-out Sleeper Couch? 

Pull-out sleeper couches work with the same principle as those of the roll-out counterparts, but the mechanisms differ. Where a roll-out sleeper couch makes use of tracks and wheels to do most of the transformation work, a pull-out sofa may require more effort. These sofas also transform from their feet. However, instead of rolling out, you’ll have to manually pull out the bed to its shape.

When left as a couch, the structure of the bed is folded up like a concertina underneath the seating area (kind of like a lazy boy). As soon as you pull on the lower part (feet) of the sofa, you’ll be able to pull out the lower part of the sleeper. Next, use the back cushions to transform the upper part of the sleeper into a fully-fledged bed.

Since the mechanism is more simple and requires more effort, these sleeper couches are usually a bit less pricey than their roll-out counterparts. Therefore, this couch can be a great option for the young adult or couple wanting to upgrade from their current seating arrangement. What’s more, without taking up any extra space, you’ll always have an extra bed for friends and family to crash on.

What is a Click-Clack Sleeper Couch?

This type of sofa bed gets its name from the unique sound it makes when it’s transformed from bed to couch. This furniture piece is conveniently lightweight, easy to assemble and versatile in its uses. It features as a couch by day and can be transformed into a comfy sleeping surface at night.
