Gaetane. Futon. October 22nd , 2017.
The different materials used in futon mattresses will directly affect the four qualities of weight, firmness, rigidity, and flexibility. The following is a rough guide as to the qualities of futon mattresses made from 100% cotton, cotton and foam, cotton and polyester, 100% polyester, and innerspring. Futon bed mattresses made from 100% cotton are at the heavier end of the scale, as is its firmness and flexibility.
Whatever your needs may be, understanding futon dimensions can help determine the futon you need to fit your room and budget. In its simplistic form, a futon is a mattress on an adjustable frame. Like a standard mattress, futon mattresses come in sizes such as twin, queen, and full. A full and queen size can sleep up to two people, while a twin can sleep one. There are also cot-sized mattresses that come as a futon chair with an ottoman, or lounge chair, that is small but will sleep one person.
This puts lumps in your mattress and can make the futon quite uncomfortable when compared to flat wooden slats on wood frames. Futons do make a sensible investment as they provide all of the features and benefits of a sofa sleeper but at a fraction of the cost in many cases. If you find the right frame that is well built from quality materials and a good mattress your futon experience is sure to be a positive one.
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.
It says something about how much the manufacturer stands behind the product. Black metal frames are made overseas. Expect to wait for a part if something breaks or if youre past that 90 day warranty, expect to pay for all replacement parts and associated costs to get your frame up and running again. Consider too that parts may also no longer be available should something break. Metal bars allow mattresses to slide into and through the gaps between each bar.
