Lamontagne. Futon. October 26th , 2017.
You may hear futons described as a three-seat, love seat, lounge, click-clack bed, dorm futon, or bunk bed futon. It is best to read the description thoroughly to better understand the type of futon they are selling and if it will fit your needs. The description of the futon will typically supply the dimensions of the futon mattress. If the dimensions are 60x80, then this is a queen mattress and most likely a three-seat futon.
Early designs involved a steel tooth design that would fit into pocket welds on the arms. These would snap off over use. The alternative design was to run a bolt through the arms and into the rails. While better it still did not address the issue of bending stretcher rails. Bent hinges also added another issue that would happen from use over time. While not as common as the other problems this issue still led to the failure of many black metal frames.
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.
It is the one part that is not 100% essential, but at the same time can improve your frame by 200%. Today you can find futon covers in a wide variety of colors, patterns, prints, and materials. Here are a few questions to ask yourself when looking for a futon cover. Do I need a cover that is washable? What is the difference between a natural and a synthetic fibers? I always recommend a washable cover to anyone that has pets or young children.
Even with the best mattress on the market youll feel slats that are too thin, or to far apart. If you use a futon frame with substandard, unsupported slats you run the risk of ruining your mattress. Try to look for frames that feature mortise and tennon joinery and metal on metal connections, theyll only add to the life of your frame. Futon mattresses are a whole other ball game. Do you want something soft, firm, or in between?
