Futons originated form the Japanese Culture. They were traditionally Japanese bedding. It was a thin mattress that they would roll out on their matt floors to sleep on at night and the next morning would roll them back up for the day. Since then the Futon bed as become westernized in America. During the day the futon is a comfortable couch or sofa and at night it transforms into and equally comfortable bed. Futons are affordable comfortable versatile and convenient way to maximize a small living space. They are a great solution for dorm rooms, small apartments, studios apartments and condos; Futons are two pieces of furniture made into one. During the day it used as comfortable sofa and for night is folds out into a comfortable bed. They are a great versatile piece of furniture to complement any household space.
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.
Some companies have turned futon in to the modern term for mattress. As with mattresses, the futon is being advertized for the different composite materials it is comprised off. Product lines for memory foam, biodegradable soy foams are abundant. This is congruent with the ancient Japanese usage for the futon. However, it has developed by having springs incorporating it, which resembles the mattress, although it is sometimes advertised as a futon. The cultural significance to the Japanese housing layout was discussed. The multipurpose advantage of the futon was outlined, and the modern innovations and advertising has been linked to a rebranding of the futon mattress today.
What kind of futon mattress should you get? If you get a single futon bed, the frame and mattress will probably come together. Mattresses sold in Western countries will usually be softer than those found in Japan, but they will still feel firm to people who have slept on soft mattresses all their lives. Buying a very cheap single futon is a bad idea as the mattress is likely to be somewhat flimsy, as is the frame. If you‘re lucky enough to find a store that specializes in selling futon mattresses (and they do exist), do check out their selection. These stores often carry a wide array of futons with different fillings, with several layers of cotton and foam sandwiched to provide a person‘s ideal level of support. The more expensive futons will be thicker and have more filling, but don‘t assume that bigger is better here. The thinner ones will likely provide better support and be less expensive as well.
