When it comes to small space living, I consider myself somewhat of an expert on making the most of the little space I’ve had available. Dual-purpose furniture, decor, and other home essentials are some of my favorites because they maximize the use of each room without cluttering it up. The benefits of multipurpose home goods become even more apparent when you have company over and need extra seating or a place to sleep. Sleeper sofas have come a long way from squeaky pull-out beds, and you can now find super stylish pieces that can not only transform into a cozy spot to rest but also a storage solution for extra blankets, pillows, and more. But you don’t have to get all of that at once. Most of the time, it’s enough to just have a sofa that flattens out and doesn’t break the bank — and I already know where to find it.

Wayfair has plenty of deals on comfy sleeper sofas, and one in particular that caught my eye for its modern style and low price (thanks to a deep discount) is Serta’s Wide-Tufted Back Convertible Sofa.

With over 8,000 five-star reviews on Wayfair, this light gray mid-century modern Serta sofa is a standout among comparable affordable finds. It comes in four other sophisticated colors (which vary in price but range from $197.99 to $216.99), has a solid wood frame and metal legs for optimal support, and the mattress has a thickness of 7.1”. The sofa can recline 30 degrees to make it a comfortable lounger or completely unfold to create a bed. With a fill of plush foam and supportive coils, it’s sure to make for a dreamy night of rest. “It’s very easy to set up,” said one Wayfair shopper. “It’s not too heavy, but very sturdy. The gray color looks very nice. Compact in size, but still roomy enough for someone to sleep on.” Lightweight, sturdy, and compact yet roomy are all words I love to hear as an apartment dweller because it means this is a piece of high-quality furniture that functions incredibly for its price while also being extremely easy to move. For a sofa that’s less than $250, that’s providing a ton of benefits for an unbelievably low price point.

That being said, be sure to pay attention to the measurements of the convertible sofa. For me, at 5’2”, it’s a great size; however, it might be a tighter fit for taller people but not wholly impossible. “Shipping was very fast, and it looks as pictured,” said another review. “We bought it for our son who just got home on deployment and needed a place to sleep. He’s 6’4, 230lbs and the futon is holding up just fine! We may be purchasing another to keep in our rec room.” In the end, it all comes down to what suits your lifestyle. But there’s no denying that whether you’re intending to use this piece as supplemental seating, a temporary bed, or the primary sofa of your living room, it’s a steal that’s hard to pass up!
