Because the bed in the sofa was soooo uncomfortable and we knew we could use additional storage space, we did something similar. We removed the framework, springs & mattress (hide-a-bed) from the sofa. I built a box that fits the inside of the sofa perfectly. The top of the box is supported by 3 1x4 slats that fit into notches cut into the edge of the box and the lid sits on top of the box. The sofa cushions sit on the top of the box. The box is totally hidden and the sofa is firm but comfortable. The wasted space is converted to 14 cubic feet of storage. We put extra blankets, miscellaneous items we don’t need on a regular basis, seasonal items. This was done at very little expense and we didn’t lose seating availability.

Sofa storage box

Here are pictures.
Sides of the box are made of 1 x 12 pine (lightweight). Bottom and top are 1/2 inch plywood. Notches for the slats are located in the center of each cushion so they will support the top evenly. The length of the slats need to be long enough to prevent them from moving out of position. They need to fit from the front of the box to the wall behind the sofa.
Feel free to ask questions.
