There’s a lot to consider when you’re shopping for a sofa with storage: size, style, and how many blankets you can shove into its hidden compartment. That’s because today’s cozy offerings are more than just a place to settle into a Netflix marathon (or, um, eat dinner). They can also come with serious storage capabilities, for throws, pillows, and even kids’ toys. 

And just because you’re looking for a sofa with storage doesn’t mean you have to live in an expansive mansion or have a massive living room (though keep in mind that many sofas with storage are also sleeper sofas, so they tend to be on the larger side). There are apartment-friendly and sectional options that can be adapted to the just-right size, as well.

Here, we’ve found the best sofas with storage for any size, budget, and style. How you decide to fill their hidden compartments is up to you. 

The Best Sectionals With Storage

Clean lines and deep cushions make this an obvious choice for anyone who has ever wanted to become one with their sofa. Available in 55 fabrics and eight sizes, it’s customizable to just about any space.

A bolster pillow at each seat on this sectional means that everyone will feel supported during your next movie night. (You can even choose from three fill options: down, double-down blend, or down alternative.) And if someone gets a chill? Just pull a blanket from the empty space under the chaise. 

 

The Best Sofa Beds With Storage

Say hello to a furniture triple threat: It’s a stylish velvet sofa, a bed with a memory foam mattress, and a stealth place to store extra pillows when guests come to town. 

Not a ton of sofas with storage are available in leather, and this one is especially appealing for its slim frame and goes-with-anything color. And then of course there’s its queen-size sleeper bed, a lifesaver for visitors. 

Sleek and low to the ground, this sofa easily converts to a bed for two. And its storage space is no joke—you can easily fit two pillows and two bulky blankets under the chaise. 

 

The Best Sofas With Storage for Small Spaces

At just 79 inches, this armless sofa can fit everything you need for an overnight guest—pillows, throws, and sheets—without overpowering your space.

Technically it’s a bench, but the matte black legs hold up two bolster pillows that we think are just as cozy as anything else for Netflix bingeing. And the best part? The cushion lifts up to reveals tons of space for soft stuff. 

Sectionals are a no-brainer for adding storage, but even classic sofas can make use of their space, too. Here, the seats rise up to reveal an empty spot for cozy items.

 

The Best Sofa With Storage for Kids

This storage sofa comes in a set that can grow with your children over time. As a love seat, it’s great in a small kids’ room, and later on you can add pieces to create a sectional for teenage hangs.

The Best Budget Sofa With Storage 

It’s not just the price that’s impressive. The slipcover style adds a sophisticated vibe, and it also transforms into a sleeper sofa that can hold pillows and blankets for overnight guests.
