Sweet Dreams1 of 9
By Rebecca Thienes
Houseguest season is just about here, which means the inevitable familial drama over who gets the bed, who gets the sofa and who gets stuck with the sleeping bags. Fortunately, we've found eight creative (comfortable) bedtime solutions to add to the mix, all under $999.
Lounging Around2 of 9
When space is at a premium, choose a lounge chair that easily transforms from a cozy reading spot into a single bed. The thick cushions become the headboard while a mattress that's slightly larger than a twin unfolds from within the frame.

Give the Slip3 of 9
This Ikea sofa bed comes in nine different styles, with slipcovers that you can clean or replace to keep it looking like new. Pull out the bedframe, trundle-style, for a sleeping spot that's roomy enough for two. Added bonus? Built-in storage under the seats holds a mattress pad for an extra soft layer between your guests and the frame. .

Under Cover4 of 9
No one would suspect that this customizable ottoman is also a bed. Simply remove the cover, and the clever cube unfolds to reveal a single sleeper, perfect for accommodating last-minute guests. Thanks to a sturdy wire frame, the pop-up bed provides plenty of support.

Double Take5 of 9
Have a lot of married friends? Choose CB2's sleek chaise—it goes from sculptural recliner to a double bed with just a flip. When unfolded, the spacious bed is larger than a queen and particularly good for those who prefer a firmer mattress.

On a Roll6 of 9
A cool conversation piece, this military-like chair gets points for style with strappy buckles and tufted details. Unroll the compact seat and stack the foam-and-cotton cushions on top of each other for additional single-sleeping comfort.

Easy Elegance7 of 9
It's rare to find a sofa bed with a vintage vibe, which makes this velvet Urban Outfitters sofa (available in four colors) quite a find. Add cushions to make it more comfy for lounging, then drop the back down to convert it into a firm sleeper for two.

What's Not to Love?8 of 9
Loveseat by day, single bed by night: The arms of this World Market sofa lower to provide extra leg room and headspace for sleeping. Its modern, clean look fits into almost any decor. You could skip a traditional sofa entirely and get a pair of these for your living room instead.

Air Supply9 of 9
Aerobed's model has a built-in headboard and self-adjusting remote for customizable firmness—making it feel more like a bed and less like, let's be honest, a raft. Your mother-in-law will feel more welcome, but since the bed stows away each morning, she'll get the hint not to stay too long.
