Just what is a futon mattress, exactly? It is a very simple mattress which could almost be considered a portable padded surface, if we‘re talking about a traditional Japanese futon. They are everything hi-tech mattresses are not. They don‘t contain springs, coils, wire, or any type of metal. That means that as long as you‘re on a good, flat surface, there‘s nothing to poke you in the back. Just firm, even support throughout. If you think about it, we are meant to sleep on firm surfaces. It maintains a good posture if we are lying on our backs.
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.
The most comfortable varieties in terms of material would be wool and cotton. These are soft and cozy. You can also pick out foam which provides firm and rigid seating. Also, remember the rule of thumb: the thicker the mattress, the more the comfort. However, make sure you don‘t over-do it as a mattress that is too thick will not be comfortable to sit on when folded, and it can be quite a task to change the beddings. As for double futon frames, the most preferred options are wood and metal. If you want a sophisticated look that is enough to enhance the appearance of your room, you can opt for wooden bi-fold frames. It is true that bi-fold frames are more comfortable compared to tri-fold as the latter can be quite challenging to fold.
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.
