Send them to college with a futon. It is comfortable, great to study on, and when guests come to visit they have a place to sit or sleep. You know how compact dorm rooms are so futons can fit in well. Futons come in all sizes so a futon can go under your loft bed or in a corner. They have cleanable covers which is important! You know how messy kids can be. Covers can be changed too, so when you move next year a new cover can give you a new look inexpensively. You don't need to purchase another sofa again. This saves you money.
Let's take a look at sizes that might work for you.
Chair size with an ottoman - Opens to cot size bed great for sitting or just lounging. You can use a separate ottoman as extra seating.
Twin chair lounger-Opens to twin bed if needed for guests
Full opens to a regular full size platform bed
Armless futons saves space - Also opens to full bed but with no arms is more compact and someone who is tall has more room.
If a Futon just won't work, we also have large bean bags that make into a bed. They are available in full, queen, or king sizes. The covers are washable and are super soft and comfy. Great to curl up in when studying or watching TV. They unzip for making a bed and fold up again easily after use.
