Yolette. Futon. October 25th , 2017.
Before you go out and buy a futon bed and mattress make sure you buy a futon bed mattress that best suits your needs. Buying a futon bed can be a cheap alternative to buying a sofa bed, but if you dont know exactly what futon you want, you may live to regret it. Futon beds have become increasingly popular. These dual purpose pieces of furniture are great when you dont have much space, or if you want a sofa that can be occasionally used as a bed for guests.
When I first got into the Futon business about six years ago, I was under the impression, as a lot of folks are, that futons werent nice enough for anywhere other than college dorms and first apartments. Well, things have certainly changed. This is not to say that those unfinished tri-fold frames with thin all cotton futon mattresses dont exist anymore, they do, but there are also some very nice frames, mattresses, and futon covers in todays market.
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.
At first it was widely regarded as a great addition to the futon family of products. Finally, a futon that could be offered at a much a lower price point. Black metal frames were being imported from China, Malaysia and Taiwan. Many of the early black metal frames were packaged with an import mattress made up of ground up textile materials and a colored covering with tufts. These packages were often anywhere in price from $199 - $249 and started out in specialty futon shops as a great way to introduce customers on a budget into a lower priced futon option.
Look for foam that has a density no less than 1.2 pound per cubic foot. With foam, higher density usually equals a long lasting mattress that retains it feel. Natural fibers, mostly cotton, are good for futons that need more flexibility. For those of us that are traditionalists a natural fiber and foam blend is a good choice when looking at a futon mattress. The futon cover is the piece that buttons up the look of the futon.
