Top 3 Small Space Sleeping Options

(As seen on Steven and Chris)
Small spaces don't mean you have to scale down entertaining or make up excuses as to why your out-of-town family members can't visit you anymore. Embrace your small space by looking for comfortable pieces of furniture that easily pull out into comfortable beds. There are so many options out there right now. Let's take a look at Jo Alcorn's three favourites.

The key thing you need to think about when buying guest beds - functionality!
Is it easy to maneuver or will it just be a pain in your butt to prepare for a guest?
Also, make sure to test it out to see if it is comfy.

Do your research and truly understand what you need your piece to function as before starting to shop.
Do you need a single or double bed or the option of both?
What size will fit in your space?
Do you want a metal or wood frame? Having a checklist will help narrow down what you really need and then you can start your search!

These pieces are Jo's favourite because they are double duty which is a must in small spaces and they are bang for your buck! Why just buy a sofa, when you can buy a pull out sofa and have two functions for the purchase of one!?

  4. This smart, modern stool quickly folds to become to a bed. Ladder is located on ring base with hidden leg.

  5. I've seen a leather ottoman in white color and I must say that it's really beautiful. Actually, I'm saving my money to buy one because I badly need one for my very small space room.

  6. Leather ottomans may be useful but how about futon sofa beds? Futon acts as a sofa by day and becomes a bed by night. This is a good sleeping option for a small space.
