Mattress Pad for Sofa Bed | Sleeper Sofa Mattress Toppers | Pull Out Couch Protector & Covers

Updated on November 9, 2012

Mattress Pad for Sofa Bed and Sleeper Sofa Options

A mattress pad for sofa beds is designed to protect or soften a sleeper sofa mattress without replacing it. A soft pull out couch topper can make a thin mattress comfortable, while even a new mattress can benefit from a waterproof, heated or memory foam pad.

By adding some padding and some protection for the mattress, you can help your guests sleep better during their stay, and help to extend the life of your pull out couch mattress.

Sleeper sofas are ideal as space savers, since we don't always have a spare room for company. Having a couch for seating all day, that turns into a bed at night when you remove the cushions to reveal the mattress, explains their popularity.

But obviously, they are not known for their perfect comfort. Most couch mattresses are thin, and you can often feel the springs and bars beneath.

When buying a sofa bed mattress pad, be sure to select the right size and type you want. You will need to store it when not in use as well as wash it. This is not easy depending on which topper you choose.

You can find covers in lightweight, pillow top, padded, waterproof, memory foam, and even heated sofa mattress pads to suit your needs. So if you have a pull out couch with a mattress you don't like to offer to your overnight guests, a topper is a great alternative to replacement.

Sleeper Bed Sofa Mattress Sizes for Mattress Pads

The fold out couch standard size for twin, double and queen toppers is not the same as a standard bed mattress. Most toppers fit the standard sofa bed mattress size below. They are shorter than a traditional mattress, to squeeze comfortably back into the couch.

Twin Sofa Mattress Size: 36" x 72"

Full Soda Mattress Size: 52" x 72"

Queen Sofa Mattress Size: 60" x 72"

The topper will be slightly larger if it wraps around or smaller if it lays on top of the mattress, but overall, the cover will be similar to these sizes.

Below you will find some of the best mattress pads for sofa beds in twin, double and queen. We have included as many styles of each as possible, as well as the buyer rating of each mattress pad for sofa bed.

Sofa Bed Sleepers for Comfort

Out sofa beds are great space savers and allow you to have an extra room, even when you really don't. They serve as great places for more than company though. Having a pull out couch is ideal for lazy days, staying home sick days, sleepovers for the kids, and even family movie night. So, the great thing is, you don't have to wait for company to arrive to enjoy your sleeper sofa.

The worst part of a sleeper sofa bed is normally the mattress. To fit into the closed couch, they often are thin and uncomfortable. People often complain they can feel the metal bars and springs against their back.

To counter this, a soft pull out couch mattress pad cover is ideal. You can use the mattress that came with the sofa, and soften it up for a more comfortable experience for both yourself and your guests.

These mattress pads and toppers come in pillow top and memory foam, to suit your taste. But what ever type you go with, you will surely enjoy the way your back and your guests will thank you in the morning.

How do you get comfortable on your pull out couch?
