Affordable Sleeper Chairs & Ottomans

Affordable Sleeper Chairs & Ottomans

Although we looked at the Best Sleeper Sofas of 2016 a couple weeks ago, there are small spaces where even a sofa bed won't fit. In those instances, sleeper chairs and ottomans may work in a pinch. While they may not be comfortable enough to sleep on every night, convertible chairs and ottomans expand for quick and easy small space guest rooms.


This is the most budget-friendly option on our list but it doesn't mean it's subpar; it has an average 4-star rating from over 100 reviewers. Some customer noted the firmness of the foam mattress topper, though not all necessarily noted it was a bad thing.

We love a double and triple threat in terms of furniture. This convertible chair is great because you can use it as a chair, chaise or flat bed. Oh the possibilities!

The VALLENTUNA sofa line is completely modular and comes in six colors, so it's easy to build exactly what you're looking for. And if you're on the hunt for an unassuming ottoman that pulls out and unfolds into a single bed, this is it.

Slouchy and overstuffed, this chair would bring a casual comfort to a small space–whether as a chair or, when unfolded, as a bed.

Our Previous Lists:


By day it's a simple unassuming ottoman, perfect for propping up your feet and watching TV. By night, it unfolds to create a bed, a welcoming respite for a last minute guest.

Although described as a sofa, this sleeper measures only 47" wide—just small enough to be considered a chair.

With 49 fabric options, you can get just the look you want with this classic rolled-arm chair. A gel-infused memory foam mattress ensures your unexpected guests will be comfortable come bedtime.

Other Good Resources:


Reviewers love this sleeper chair (which is made in America!). From one of the comments: "It is always hard to purchase things online without being able to sit on things, feel it, see the color, etc. This oversized chair worked out perfectly! It looks beautiful and the bed is extremely comfortable for a pull out! I would highly recommend this sleeper chair! It feels great and the color was exactly what I was expecting!"

A kiln-dried wood frame ensures you'll have a long-lasting piece of furniture, and the standard twin means you can use easy-to-find sheets and bedding.

The Willow may have only one review, but it's 5 stars and the rater noted the following: "It's been four years since I purchased the Willow Twin Sleeper and sitting on it is still as heavenly as the day I bought it! And without fail, every visiter who sits in the Willow has commented on how comfortable it is. I plan on purchasing the Sofa to go with the Twin once I move into my larger space!" Sounds like a winner to us!

The transitional silhouette of the Buchanan would work in many decor styles. Consider it for a guest bedroom that is predominantly used as an office or play room, or in your living room as a side kick to your sofa.
