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.
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.
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.
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.
When folded, the bi-fold futon bed mattress has a wider seating area than does the tri-fold futon bed mattress. The bi-fold futon looks much more like a traditional sofa, whereas the tri-fold futon looks more like a two seat sofa. If space is very limited you may want to consider buying a tri-fold futon bed mattress, but if not, the bi-fold futon bed mattress usually looks far more pleasing to the eye.
