The first choice of a couch and the most popular is the full-sized, usually, three cushioned, couch. This is the couch that you will find in most homes. It is large enough to fit a small family and they come in a variety of colours and styles to match your tastes. This couch usually comes in a set with a smaller couch or loveseat.
This couch is best used in a living space or walk in conversation/meeting room. It is comfortable enough and sometimes professional enough to be used in waiting rooms or offices. This couch will serve most people very well. Especially since most people like to have more than one couch in their home.
The second choice of a couch is the much larger, and more expensive, sectional couch. This couch is great for game rooms, theatre rooms, or bonus rooms. It is very large and is able to accommodate many people at one time. It is long enough to stretch out on and watch a movie or play video games. This couch comes in fewer styles and colours but is still a great choice for any home.
The third, and cheapest option is the futon couch. This couch is universally known as a sleeper couch. It is a couch by day, and a bed by night. It usually consists of a metal frame that can be pulled and laid down to provide a comfortable sleeping area. The futon has a big mattress that looks like a bed mattress that folds in the middle making a couch but an uninterrupted sleeping mattress when laid flat. This couch is best used in studio apartments or in a house where you may need an extra bed for visitors.
The last option is the hide-a-bed couch. This couch is best used in apartments or houses that need an extra bed in case of visitors. The cushions come off and a folded up bed frame pop out revealing usually a full to queen sized bed. They are a heavier, more expensive option to the futon couch. But they come in more styles and colours than the futon couch. They usually also look better since you can’t see the bed. Hence the name hide-a-bed.
