Gaetane. Futon. October 26th , 2017.
A lighter futon bed mattress is a good choice as long as it gives the comfort you want. If youre planning on using your futon mainly as a bed then a heavier futon mattress is usually going to be best option. Firmness is a measurement of the feel or give of the mattress when used as a sleeping or sitting surface. This quality is what people define as comfortable. Rigidity is the ability of the futon bed mattress to retain its shape along its edge when being used as a bed or sofa.
Buying a futon bed is a great choice. A futon bed can be used during the day as a sofa and makes a great bed for sleeping on. However, before buying you should know what futon bed mattress qualities to look for. It isnt the frame of a futon bed than provides the comfort; its the futon bed mattress. If you havent yet bought your futon bed you should be aware that futon beds come in two forms; bi-fold and tri-fold.
The other issue with the hollow bars is that if enough weight was placed on a spot they would begin to bend. The issue became so bad that a 90 day warranty was put in place by most manufacturers of these frames. Another issue the black metal frames suffered from were bending stretcher bars or rails. Again the hollow nature of these strecther rails presented issues with breakage and bending.
Natural fibers, cotton and linen are nice and soft to begin with, but can wear faster than synthetics. Synthetic fibers; polyester, nylon, rayon and such; might not be quite as soft but they last longer than natural fibers. Synthetic fibers have come a long way, they are constantly being improved and they hold vivid dyes that cotton and linen cant. A good compromise between Natural and Synthetic fibers is blends of the two, which are in abundance in the futon cover market.
It was soon discovered though that these frames were not such a bargain that they appeared to be. The first problem with black metal frames is the round metal bars that make up the seat and back sections of these frames. Where as wood futon frames are using flat slats, black metal frames have hollow round bars. Thinner mattresses would slide through the gaps between the round bars. On wood futons this was never a problem.
