If you are just tired of the fabric you have right now but don’t want to invest in a new piece of furniture, you may also want to look into slipcovers. I would definitely not recommend reupholstering in that event. In the end, it is simply a question of finding the best value.
If you plan to use it as the primary sleeping surface for yourself, look into the type of mattress that comes with it. As you are no doubt aware, sleepers come with many different types of mattresses, some using specialty materials, some come with inner-springs and others are air beds. Try and find one with a mattress type you are happy using. Also look for a mechanism that opens and closes easily.
When you measure a sofa, don´t just stop at the length or the width because that will not give you the full picture and the measurements can be incorrect. Here is how to measure properly: Width: Measure the width from arm to arm because that is usually the widest part of the sofa. You need to make sure that you are taking the width measurements at the widest point. For instance, if the sofa you selected has rolled arms, measure from outside the widest part of one arm to the other arm and not at the bottom near the legs.
