Looking for the best corner sofa beds? If you want the versatility of a sleeper sofa, but the comfort and spaciousness of a regular couch, then a corner or chaise sofa bed could offer the best of both worlds.
A corner sofa bed will offer plenty of space for the whole family to relax and provide roomy sleeping for any overnight guests, whilst a chaise sofa bed is a great option if you need a smaller sofa but still want to be able to kickback and relax with some extra legroom.
And even better, most of the chaise sofa beds on our list also offer handy secret storage tucked away in that chaise compartment. Perfect for stashing the extra duvet and bedding guests will need.
Not sure if a corner option is for you? Head over to our best sofa beds round-up for three-seater sofa beds, compact two-seaters and more.
How to choose the best corner sofa bed
Why you can trust Ideal Home
It may sound obvious, but both a corner sofa bed and a chaise lounger can take up quite a lot of floor space, so the first job is to double - even triple! - check your measurements to make sure you’ll have room for the style you prefer.
When measuring up make sure to think about the sofa height as well as width and depth, especially if it needs to fit under a windowsill or any existing architectural features, and remember to consider access. For top tips check out our guide to getting sofa measurements right.
Most corner sofa beds come in (at least) two sections to make for easier manoeuvre through front doors and hallways, but if you have particularly awkward access this may affect the options you can consider. A modular corner sofa is a great solution if you want a large amount of seating but have tricky access to contend with.
You’ll pretty much always get a double mattress with a corner sofa or chaise sofa bed, but what is marketed as a ‘double’ can sometimes be a snug fit for two! So if you regularly have guests who stay for a good length of time they’ll no doubt thank you for opting for the roomiest sofa bed your budget allows.
It’s also important to consider the type of mattress the model comes with; budget options may just offer a foam mattress whilst spending a little more will get you a more comfortable pocket-sprung or memory foam mattress.
If a sofa bed is going to get everyday use as your main seating, then, of course, it’s important that it’s comfortable to sit on.
As a rule, most sofa beds are going to feel a little firmer to sit on than the best sofas you can buy due to their hidden mechanisms. But, there are ways to increase comfort. The cheapest sofa beds are generally made of solid foam which is likely to provide the firmest sitting experience. If budget allows, then look for options that offer a sprung or webbed seating base, plus feather-wrapped cushions for extra comfort.
The best corner sofa beds and chaise sleeper sofas:
1. Darlings of Chelsea Hayes Corner Sofa Bed

2. MADE Orson Chaise Sofa Bed
Classic design details, including rollback arms and traditional ball feet, make the Orson corner sofa bed from MADE a brilliant option for a traditional interior.
We love the dark velvet upholstery options which offer a luxe feel at an affordable price point, and the handy hidden storage compartment in the chaise section that maximises every square inch of space.
The one drawback? The seat cushions are foam so the sit is fairly firm, and mattress is pretty narrow for a double and quite thin at only 6cm thick, so - depending on how well your guests sleep - it may not offer the best night's rest compared to our other options.
3. John Lewis & Partners Bailey Chaise End Sofa Bed
This modern design will make a versatile addition to a wide range of living rooms, and the huge selection of upholstery options means you'll easily find a colourway to match existing decor.
Designed to be as comfortable to sleep on as it is to sit on, the Bailey from John Lewis features a beech slat bed base that emulates a 'traditional' bed frame to ensure a good night's sleep, topped by an almost-as-deep-as-a-proper-bed pocket-sprung mattress.
A wide selection of coordinating living room furniture, including armchairs, footstools, snugglers and normal two and three-seater sofas mean this sofa bed will also work well as part of a full living room furniture set.
4. Love Your Home Earl Grey Corner Sofa Bed
If you want a chaise sofa bed that no-one will guess hides a mattress then we think the classic Earl Grey sofa bed from Love Your Home more than lives up to the task.
The classic Chesterfield design, with a button-back backrest and scalloped arms, is big on style, whilst a choice of silicone wadding or feather wrapped cushions and the option to go with the default coil-sprung mattress or upgrade to a pocket-sprung design ensures comfort is taken care of too.
Oh. and there's plenty of space to stash guest bedding in the roomy chaise compartment.
5. Darlings of Chelsea Norbury Corner Sofa Bed
A huge range of configuration options, including compact and spacious versions of the chaise and corner sofa bed designs make the Norbury form Darlings of Chelsea a great option for creating bespoke seating that fits your room perfectly.
Feather-wrapped sofa cushions and a 12cm deep pocket-sprung mattress - which is a good few centimetres longer than your average sofa bed mattress too - ensure comfort and style are both maximised.
6. DFS Velocity Leather Chaise Sofa Bed
If you're looking for a leather chaise sofa bed then this contemporary design from DFS is well worth considering.
We like the pale grey leather, but there are four other colour options available, and all come with adjustable headrests for the ultimate in comfortable lounging.
There is also a deep pocket-sprung mattress that makes for comfortable sleeping.
7. Loaf Chatnap Modular Corner Sofa bed
Flexibility is foremost with the Chatnap modular corner sofa from Loaf.
The sectional design means you can extend this corner sofa as far as space allows, adding a handy chaise unit for kicking back (and hidden storage), keeping things streamlined with an armless look, or moving the units around the room to create alternative layouts.
Because it's Loaf, seats are big, deep and squishy, with feather-wrapped foam cushions delivering the ultimate in comfort without the plumping.
