I have an Ikea daybed (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20162888) - it does convert into what is essentially a 'double twin', which seems roughly equivalent to a short king, by pulling out the whole front panel (easy for one person to do!). You have to buy two twin mattresses to use the bed this way - they stay stacked when the bed is in it's twin configuration. I wanted something that could accommodate visiting couples but wouldn't take up the entire (small) room - very happy w/ this option! Honestly I rarely use it as a couch, but have slept on it in the expanded configuration multiple times (it's in the room that has air conditioning!) and it's pretty comfortable. I forget which mattresses I opted for, but that's probably a big variable...
