Futons are fast becoming one of the most sought after pieces of furniture for many homes these days. Gone are the days where futons are considered to be the "Jeeps" of home furnishings. Nowadays, with updated, modern styling, and health and sleep benefits that they provide, futons are fast becoming the "Mercedes-Benz" for the living room or bedroom. In a fast-paced, busy world, we‘re seeing a need to simplify our lives through convenience. More people are dining at fast-food chains (where even salads and fruits can be purchased for the health-conscious), shoes have incorporated wheels on the soles for riding around, and almost any products you can think can be purchased online at the comfort of your own home. With that said, people have found a way to make everyday living at their own homes more convenient; by replacing their conventional couches (and in some cases, their beds) with a futon.
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.
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.
