If you want a piece of furniture that is lightweight, functional, and reasonably priced, a futon is just right for you. Whether you will be furnishing an efficiency apartment in a city or installing one in a living room or den that you can then use as a guest room, using a futon is a great way to add extra space to anywhere you live. Here are some of the main benefits to owning a futon. The first main benefit to owning a futon is that it is functional and saves a lot of space. During the day you can use a futon as a sofa, or even a chair so that you have room to sit and watch TV, read a book, or do any number of other activities. At night, the futon turns into a bed, making any room into a bed room. This is great for dorm rooms and studio apartments, where space is limited, but also for homes, where you can use them as a place where friends and family can sleep for the night.
As for those who prefer a longer futon, they can opt for the long double measuring 54" x 80". Basically, this variant would be combining both the queen futon‘s length without the added width. On the other hand, there is a single futon bed which is generally the small version, and it is not really huge enough for you to sleep on comfortably. On a lighter note, it does make an excellent lounge.
For natural fiber mixes of the futon, wooden bases compliment it the best. Though there are metal frames also available, wood frames have more options to offer with variety in designs, color and different structures to suit your home interiors. There are futon beds with storage space options as well, which can be of good advantage to small living space. The best way to make your living room livelier is by covering the futon with attractive mattress covers. They can be further accessorized with cushions and small pillows which are great sofa bed add-ons. The covers can be easily changed when you want to use the futon as bed in the night. The only reason why mission style futons are so popular for modern home furniture is their versatility. They can be used for all kind of rooms including the living room and bedroom. Its ability to easily convert itself from a sofa to bed and vice versa, makes it a good option for those looking for economical furniture and better space management. Also they are very attractive and easy to maintain with unbeatable simplicity.
When buying a futon there are few considerations, the foremost being where you want to place the futon. If the answer is living room, then you need to look for a sofa bed futon which can be comfortable both during the day and night. One needs to first understand that a futon is actually a cotton padded mattress used for sleeping either on the floor or on a raised frame. After choosing the right kind of mattress, select a base frame which is convenient for folding and unfolding. For a full size futon, bi-fold frame style is the best. As the bi-fold frame utilizes the longer length of the mattress, it folds the mattress only once, providing a larger seating and sleeping space. But no matter how you sleep or sit and whether you‘re after a bed or a sofa, it‘s important that the futon sits on a slatted frame.
