Sectional Futons VS Sectional Sofas: Pros & Cons
Sectional sofas make the perfect spot to lounge, read, watch movies and entertain. However, not all rooms can afford the space for one, especially in smaller apartments.
Having said that, the DHP Hartford convertible futon has smaller dimensions, yet plenty of lounging area. Recline the seat back, throw your legs up and get comfortable!
In fact, if you buy the set with the matching storage ottoman, you can increase your lounging space even more. Not to mention, you get more storage as well.
Note: Speaking of storage, the double ottoman gives you significant space to keep books, remotes, blankets are more. In addition, the chaise cushion lifts up to provide even more space to keep stuff.
Built-in storage compartments not only helps you hide clutter, it frees up space in your living room or den for other furniture (or none).
Futon Sectional Sofas Can Save You Money…
Convertible futons definitely offer lots of versatility and functionality. Plus, they typically can save you money over a traditional sofa sleeper.
For instance, this DHP futon set (with double storage ottoman) only costs about $700-$750 (depending on the color you choose). I mean, compare that to the price of a sectional sofa, a sofa bed and a double ottoman.
A More Expensive Futon Sectional Sofa Sleeper…
Even the Vegas Sectional Futon Sofa Bed (that looks extremely similar to the DHP Hartford) costs over $1,500 with shipping. Plus, it doesn’t come with an ottoman.
By the way, here’s a short video clip showing the settings for the reclining seat back. Notice how you can adjust them separately.
Also, check out how the chaise and couch are interchangeable. In other words, you can set up the chaise on either the left or right side, depending on your room. Nice, huh?
That said, a sectional futon sofa bed does come with some disadvantages.
- First of all, they often don’t fit as many people because they have a more compact size. If your home has the space, and you want to be able to spread out more, the DHP Hartford may not be your best option.
- Second, they don’t offer as plush cushioning as a more expensive sofa. So, if you have a large family that will use this furniture on a daily basis, you may want to opt for something not as firm.
- Third, futon cushions usually don’t feel as soft as a sofa bed mattress. Therefore, some people say that sleeping on them is uncomfortable.
This Futon Sectional Can Turn Mundane Rooms into Cool Spaces!
Plus, the versatile shape and design of this futon sectional make it easier to fit in smaller rooms or awkward spaces. You can turn an otherwise boring room into one that you’ll love spending time in.
For example, if you have a spare bedroom that you want to make more functional, consider the Hartford sectional futon. You get a lot of value for your money.
Not only can you transform the extra space into a relaxing TV room, you can also switch it into a guest bedroom when you need it. (And, you can save money by not having to purchase an extra guest bed either!)

Below, you can see a diagram of the actual dimensions of the sectional futon. These include chaise length, sleeper height, the height and thickness of the seat cushions, arm rests, etc..
Note: Keep in mind that the bed length measures approximately 76.5″ long (6′ 4.5″ long), not including the arm rests. Therefore, this sectional can more comfortably fit taller people than your typical convertible futon without a chaise.
How to Save Even More Money on a Sectional with Futon:
DHP makes a cheaper version of a modern futon sectional sofa called the Emily Futon. It costs about half the price of the Hartford above. However, it does not include the concealed storage compartments.
Plus, due to its lack of armrests, it doesn’t really look like a traditional couch. Many people prefer the support of the side armrests, not to mention it makes the futon look more like a more expensive sofa.
DHP also used to make the DHP Brent Futon sectional sleeper sofa which is no longer available. It came with similar armrests in a grey linen upholstery. However, it did not have storage underneath the cushions.
