Before you even think of buying a sofa, you need to measure your home. Start from the entry, then move on to all the passages, hallways, staircases, or doors that your sofa will pass through to get to where it is supposed to go. Make sure to leave a few extra inches for maneuvering your furniture.
Measuring is not just to get the sofa inside, but also to make sure it is the correct fit for the room. Whether you are placing it against a wall or sitting it in an open space, it needs to fit that space. You also want it to be the same scale as your other furniture and the room as a whole.
For sitting, the size of a full sized sleeper is between a sofa and a love seat, rather like an apartment sofa, so it is still a good option for smaller spaces and apartments. You will find that a full-size sleeper is generally about 72 inches wide, and approximately about 90 inches long when fully opened. There is no simple, easy yes or no answer to this question because the answer depends on several factors. If you are planning to reupholster an old sofa then you should really consider them before you commit to an expensive undertaking.
