    17 Sectional Sleeper Sofas That Are Great For Guests *And* Afternoon Naps

    With this list, you're sure to find the perfect sleeper sectional for your space, style, and budget.

    Hi there! And welcome to BuzzFeed Shopping's list of the best sleeper sectionals you can buy online right now.

    Let's talk criteria and lingo.

    Sofa vs. couch, what's the difference? A sofa and a couch are the same thing, and both terms are used interchangeably in this article. 

    A sectional is a sofa with either an L or U shape, which can happen when you add a chaise lounge, ottoman, or more seating to either side of a traditional sofa. L-shaped sectionals are, by far, the most popular style right now, but U-shaped sectionals are still a great choice, especially if you have ample space and have a large family or love to entertain. Most L-shaped sectionals are a combination of a sofa and a chaise lounge, and are typically smaller than a U-shaped one. 

    Converting a sectional to a bed can happen four ways: 

    - It has a pull-out mattress that makes a proper bed.

    - The pieces of the sectional are modular and can be moved around to make the shape of a bed, without the use of a traditional mattress.

    - The sectional has a pull-out bed that isn't a mattress, but converts the seating area of the sectional to a bed shape.

    - The sectional's a futon with a back that folds down to make a bed. 

    These days, a lot of sectionals have chaise lounges or ottomans with storage underneath. Most have a fabric handle (you can spot them in the photos) that you use to easily lift up the top half of the piece to access the storage underneath. On this list, we will always state if a chaise or ottoman has storage.

    A note about firmness: Most converter sectionals are on the firmer side, which is great if that's your preference or you'll use it as a bed a lot (firmer bed = better sleep). If you're adamant about wanting really soft cushions, a sectional with a pull-out mattress might be a better fit for you because it's a separate mattress, and therefore, the cushion firmness doesn't matter. 

    A note about sizing: Measure, measure, measure before you buy a sectional. Some ship as two big pieces of furniture, others ship as modular pieces that you put together. Most come without their feet/legs attached. Always check to make sure the boxes that the piece ships in can fit through your front door, hallways, and tight corners, and your building's elevator and stairwells if you live in an apartment or condo. If you're sure you can't fit a traditional big piece through your home, consider a modular option that ships in separate boxes that you put together on site. In this article, measurements will be listed in inches as W (width) x D (depth) x H (height) and will be the overall dimensions.

    1. A brown faux leather sectional with a pull-out bed and chaise storage and cup holders on each sofa arm, so you have everything you need for your next epic movie night. This upholstery is GREAT for a sectional that'll get a lot of use, as it's way more stain-resistant than traditional leather.

    2. A massive U-shaped sectional with chaise storage and tufted back cushions that easily converts to a bed, which is so necessary during the holidays or when you have unexpected overnight guests. Pro tip: Store bedding, especially pillows, in the chaise so you can free up room in your closet. This is the largest sectional on this list.
