In very small kitchens, it is better to put a sofa without a transformation mechanism, but with a large storage box and comfortable roomy side shelves, on which you can put, for example, a clock, a small receiver or a bowl of fruit.

There are semicircular models. In studio apartments there are semicircular folding sofas, which, if necessary, are transformed into a large bed.

Comfort and functionality will be provided by modular sofa options that change their configuration. Modern manufacturers often supplement them with a minibar, a magazine rack, and storage boxes under the seat. But in such structures it is fundamentally important to pay special attention to the quality of the frame so that the transformation mechanism will serve for a long time..

Sedaflex is a relative of the previous one, but it costs an order of magnitude more. It can be used as a permanent place to sleep, while frequent use is undesirable for the former..

A straight roll-out sofa for a small kitchen is the least suitable. And there are reasons for this: it is difficult to unfold; there is no storage space in it; the mechanism of such a model is quite capricious; takes up a lot of space when unfolded.

A good option is a sofa «accordion». Easily unfolds, reliable, but requires a lot of space, so it is better suited for studio apartments.
