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.
A bi-fold futon bed folds the mattress in half whereas a tri-fold futon bed folds the mattress into thirds. This means that a tri-fold futon bed mattress isnt as thick or as supportive as a bi-fold futon bed. Therefore, if youre going to be using your futon a lot for sleeping on, then a bi-fold futon bed mattress is a better choice. A futon bed mattress can be defined with the following qualities: weight, firmness, rigidity, and flexibility.
Thinking in these terms will help you to understand the type of futon you may need. Hosting couples will require a full or queen mattress, while having a place for a friend to crash when they need to may only need a single. If you have the room, you may want to purchase a few different futons to allow for flexible options as the need arises. A futon may be listed in different ways, depending on the manufacturer or retailers preference.
