Romaine. Futon. October 11th , 2017.
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 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.
You may see the dimensions listed as 60x84. These dimensions include the armrests, which serve as the head and footboards of the futon when it is open as a bed. In this description, the armrests are each 2 wide, so you know the total amount of space you will need for the futon. A full sofa has futon dimensions of 54x75. They may be listed as a full sofa, lounger, or click clack bed.
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.
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.
