Futon beds also tend to cost less than the more traditional sofa beds. However before buying a futon bed and mattress you should decide exactly what function the futon bed will be put to use. First, futon beds tend to come in two varieties; a bi-fold frame or tri-fold frame. A bi-fold futon bed is where the frame folds the mattress in half; down the middle, lengthways. A tri-fold futon bed is where the frame folds the mattress into thirds, widthways; one third forms the seat, one third the back, and the final third folding over the back or underneath the seat.
Rigidity of a futon bed mattress is more important when the futon is being used mainly as a sofa. Flexibility basically defines how easy folding the futon mattress is going to be. If you are going to folding the mattress daily from sofa to bed back to sofa again, then buying a futon bed mattress with a lot of flexibility makes sense. Futon bed mattresses are made from a variety of materials.
Secondly, it should be borne in mind that it isnt the futon frame that provides the comfort when either sitting or sleeping on a futon: it is the futon mattress that provides the comfort. A futon bed mattress made for a tri-fold futon frame is not as thick as that for a bi-fold futon bed frame. Therefore, if you intend to sleep on your futon regularly you might be best to buy a bi-fold futon bed mattress: a thicker mattress tends to provide more support.
