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.
While most of the new mattresses today try to do this with fancy new technology and try to sell you on the mattress through slick ad campaigns, they don‘t seem to work all that well (as evidenced by the constant introduction of newer models that claim to be the best). That‘s the problem. The good news is, you don‘t need any of those over-engineered, pricey mattresses. Jettison the fancy for the simple in the form of the futon mattress, and you may realize how much more conducive to a good night‘s rest simplicity can be. In this article, we will discuss the single futon mattress, but keep in mind that the discussion will also be applicable to larger futon mattresses.
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.
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.
