Most people think of the circa 1970's style sleepers with the bed springs and metal sticking into their backs when you mention sleeper sofas as an option. Anybody that ever slept on these horrible couches knows the horrors of sleeping with a bar in your back. Some of today's couch sleeper are uncomfortable, but the vast majority of the options out there are light years ahead of the vision you probably have. The best sleeper sofa options out there can be found in small sofa sleepers, and are literally like sleeping on air. Air sleepers are incredible and very easy to set up as well. Sleeper sofas no longer have to be uncomfortable.
Obviously, your sleeper sofa is going to be rather heavy. The size determines just how heavy it will be. It's a good idea to pick a spot in your home, have the sofa delivered, and then leave it there. Moving it around will take two to three people (or more). Additionally, you should be able to pull out and push in the sleeper section with one hand.
Some people have a built in aversion to ready to assemble options and that is logical. In the past, RTA meant that the furniture was going to be cheaply made and likely would fall apart within months. Fortunately, that has changed in a dramatic way in recent years. There are now sleeper sofa options in the ready to assemble market that are every bit as good as a standard pieces of furniture, and in some cases actually even superior. These are called custom made RTA sleeper sofas, and they are made by only a couple of top quality manufacturers.
